VELUX pleated blinds: a stylish choice for your roof windows

Improving your roof windows with the right accessories can make a world of a difference both in terms of decoration, light-control and energy-efficiency. In this realm, VELUX pleated blinds, specifically the VELUX translucent pleated blinds and VELUX blackout energy pleated blinds, stand out for their unique blend of style, comfort, and efficiency. Below, we cover some of the main benefits of pleated blinds and discover which type may be the right one for your home and your roof windows.

VELUX translucent pleated blinds

VELUX translucent pleated blinds are designed to introduce a gentle diffusion of light, thereby creating a serene and inviting atmosphere in your home. The blinds dim incoming daylight based on the transparency of the cloth. Several options are available depending on your needs.


  • Soft light filtration: Translucent pleated blinds excel in filtering harsh sunlight, providing a soft, natural light that enhances the ambiance of any room without the discomfort of direct sunlight. Using our product configurator, you can select the transparency and design that best suits your needs.
  • Elegant interior enhancement: The subtle, elegant design of the pleated blinds contributes to a sophisticated interior décor. Choose between a variety of different colours to ensure a design that matches your interior.
  • Customizable light control: Translucent pleated blinds offer adjustable light control, allowing you to create the desired level of brightness and privacy. Adjust the blind to let in as much light as you want, whenever you want. The blinds are available in manual, electric or solar-powered operation. Manual pleated blinds can be operated both from top and bottom to ensure very precise adjustment of incoming light. Electric and solar-powered blinds can be operated remotely from anywhere in the room.


VELUX blackout energy pleated blinds

For those requiring a complete light-blocking solution, VELUX blackout energy pleated blinds provide the perfect option.
