Blinds for Skylight Windows
Here at Expression Blinds, we are extremely pleased to offer our customers genuine Velux Blinds, designed to fit Velux skylight windows perfectly. We can supply the full range of Velux blinds in a stunning array of colour and fabrics, including blackout ranges.
Velux blinds give a very similar appearance to the popular Perfect Fit range, in that they are fitted into the window with a neat and stylish frame that surrounds the blind fabric. As each blind is manufactured by the same company as the windows, they fit the window exactly. This means that the blackout blinds block out 100% of the light coming through the window, making them the most effective blackout blind on the market!
All of the Velux ranges are tensioned, meaning they work perfectly on the skylight windows. You have complete control as to where the blind sits, and as to how much light is allowed into the room. The Venetian options give you extra versatility to tilt the slats of the blind, as well as lifting them up and down.
As with all our blinds, we offer a free installation service. You can select your blind type and colour from the Velux web-site, then call us for your price – we guarantee our price will be exactly the same as the retail price from Velux. The added bonus is that we install the blinds for you at no additional charge. Velux do not offer this service!

What are my options with Velux Blinds?
Selecting your perfect Velux blinds couldn’t be simpler- just follow the step by step guide to get started;
Step 1 – Check your window code
Every Velux roof window has a unique data plate that details the type and size of the window (see the diagram below). Check your windows type and size, no measurements are needed. *Please note if the window does not have a data plate, it is not a Velux window, and therefore Velux blinds are not suitable. Please call us for your options with a standard skylight windows.
The data plate shown in the diagram shows that the window type is a GGL, and the size is a S06. This will allow us to select the correct blind size to fit the window exactly. If you cant find the code and are certain it is a Velux window, or if you cant make out the code on the plate, don’t worry! By measuring the width and drop of the glass size of the window, we can work out which type of blind will fit, just give us a call or send an email.
