While summer is the ideal time to spend outdoors, sweltering temperatures can drive lots of people back into their homes. But every now and then excessive heat can chase you indoors through your windows, forcing you to shut the curtains or withdraw to a cooler room. Why should summer heat choose where and when you can appreciate the comfort of your own home?
Rather than sacrificing natural light or scenic views, consider new window treatments. Many options include light-filtering or insulating capabilities that should reduce the amount of heat arriving through your windows. These custom window treatments are as striking as they are practical. If you prefer to better control sunlight, heat, humidity and other issues, why not ask for a free in-home or virtual consultation? A local design expert can propose dazzling treatments that block sunlight heat from windows.
Roman Shades Disperse Harsh Sunlight
Roman shades are increasingly popular because they feature attractive designs while being uncomplicated to use and maintain. These pleated window treatments close snugly when open and convey a clean, appealing look when covering the window. These controls can even be motorized for ultimate convenience. New custom Roman shades provide privacy and light control.
And if you need higher energy efficiency, Solera® Soft Shades combine the appearance of Roman shades with the insulating cells of honeycomb shades. Pick from a wide range of colors and fabric opacities to ensure you decide how much light and heat enter the room. These pockets of air shield against heat and sunlight, helping you lower your energy use.
Honeycomb Shades Insulate Against Heat
When insulation is a higher priority, full honeycomb shades are a fantastic option. These shades are available in single-, double- and triple-cell varieties, presenting more alternatives depending on your home’s needs. Some are also manufactured with several layers of fabric for an even stronger layer of protection. You don't need to worry about blocking the window entirely, because translucent fabrics provide a cozy glow as sunlight is dispersed into the room.
Duette® Honeycomb Shades are the most energy-efficient honeycomb shades around. You can decide between two styles, different layers of fabric and different pleat sizes for a truly personalized final product. You can even include blackout or light diffusion for the ultimate control over sunlight heat.
