Side return extension question

Postby Jen66 » Sat Mar 02, 2019 9:01 pm

Just wondering whether to have opaque or clear glass in the Velux windows? We're terraced,  so overlooked. 

I am questioning if opaque just looks dirty. 

I know you can get blinds for but they seem a big faff. The electric ones are hugely expensive and am just about at the bottom of the money pot.

Would welcome any input from those in the know.

Hi - We have blinds on our side extension Veluxes as we are also overlooked a bit.  We got the white concertina blinds from Velux.

I am very pleased with them as they provide a bit of shade, otherwise in summer it is a bit too bright, but they let in plenty of light.  It might be very hot with just glass.   I could send you photos. To open them we have a concertina rod, but I have found that I tend to just leave them drawn all the time.

I think they also make the room feel a bit more cosy!
