What do Roof Lantern Blinds cost?

The popularity of roof lanterns has grown hugely on the last few years and a question we are getting asked more and more is What do roof lantern blinds cost?

There are several aspects that that will affect the cost of your roof lantern blind.

Firstly the type of blind you would like for your roof lantern. There are generally 2 types offered by most blind companies, pleated and roller blinds.

The second is the size of your roof lantern. Larger roof lanterns need a more heavy duty and robust system compared to a smaller lantern.

For more information on the blind types and how they differ please read https://www.barlowblinds.com/roof-lantern-blinds

Thirdly how do you want to operate your blind? The pleated roof blinds are manually operated with a pole, roller blinds are manually operated with a gearbox and winding handle (don’t worry both the pole and handle are detachable). Both systems can also be motorised, so your blind is controlled by a remote control. Haven’t got power up there? Again don’t worry some systems are battery powered with a solar panel charger.

So let’s look at the options

What do roof lantern blinds cost? Option 1: Pleated Roof Blinds

Mains powered blinds will require a power supply in place in the area around where the blind will be installed.
