When it comes to choosing window treatments for your home, blinds and shades are two popular choices.
Blinds are considered “hard” coverings, with slats that tilt to control the amount of light and sun coming in. Shades, however, are a “soft” treatment, and have a single piece of material that can be raised or lowered.
Shades allow you to control the amount of light that filters into the room, based on the opacity of the material. Shades are a popular choice of window treatment because of their versatility, ease of care, and the insulation and privacy that shades provide.
Read on to discover three popular choices of shades, and find out which one is a perfect choice for your home.
Roller shades are made from a single layer of fabric attached to a roller bar at the top of the window. They are available in many beautiful choices of fabric. Different options are available depending on the amount of light that you want to let into the room. Roller shades have different accessories such as cornices and valances, which can complement your home’s décor as well.
Cellular shades are one of the most sought-after shade options available today! Cellular shades not only look great, they are also a great energy efficient option. The honeycomb design of cellular shades creates pockets of air which help to insulate the home from the outside elements. The triple cell honeycomb option offers best insulation factor, helping to keep air conditioning costs down.
When it comes to shades, solar shades are considered one of the most ecofriendly options, since they are effective at blocking out sun’s rays; they can drastically lower the temperature in a room. They are designed to allow as much -or as little- direct sunlight into your house as you desire, depending on the openness factor that you choose. Solar shades are also known as light diffusers, as they have the ability to block or diffuse harmful rays that can cause discoloring in your furniture, as well as reducing glare on computer and TV screens.
