From their inauspicious beginnings as heavy vinyl pull-down shades that helped black out light in bedrooms, roller shades have evolved and become a very popular option for many homes. They offer many benefits, including energy savings, versatility, and beauty. To learn more, speak with a trained consultant at Window Treats serving Brooklyn.
Roller Shades for Energy Efficiency
You might be reluctant to cover your window for fear of losing your view, but did you know that up to 50% of your home’s heating and cooling energy can be lost through the windows? Covering them at least at night and or during very sunny days in the summer can help make your windows more energy-efficient. Plus, be aware that any shades or blinds that carry a vertical line can be pulled up and totally disappear under a valance or blend into the woodwork. If you don’t have any treatments, you might want to consider a Hunter Douglas Designer Roller Shade. They come in many different colors and textures that will not only enhance your window but also insulate it, keeping your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.
For Patios or Balconies
The Hunter Douglas Designer Screen Shades Collection provides excellent UV protection through a great selection of translucent fabrics that allow you to enjoy the view of your outdoors. The Hunter Douglas Alustra® Collection also offers benefits. The Screen Shades, with their combination of fabrics and hardware, offer a contemporary look. The Roller Shades are a nice alternative to the woven woods through the use of their light-filtering fabric selection.
Things to Know About Designer Screen Shades
- An untreated window will appear to be a shiny big black spot at night—treating it makes it look better from the outside.
- Do you want color on the window or the wall? When you put color on a window, your eye is drawn to it and it will stand out to become the focal point.
- The more interesting accessories, fabrics and color you have in a room, the less color and texture should be on the windows. You can always add valances or side panels to a functioning neutral-color window treatment.
