The ABC’s of Window Fashion....

Part one:
Are your windows “naked” or in need of an update?  Maybe you have been avoiding window treatments because you don’t know how to get started and are overwhelmed by all of the choices.  First things first, you have to know your ultimate goal.  There are some features and functions to consider when choosing the right treatments.

Are you looking for privacy?  Most blinds and shades will give you privacy.  Both horizontal and vertical blinds will allow you to adjust the sunlight and give you privacy at the same time. Shades with a high opacity will also do the trick.

Do you need light control?  To completely block out the sun you can choose an opaque, or blackout, shade.  Blackout cellular shades work great for blocking out light. 

Are you looking for energy efficient treatments to lower your energy bill? If your room gets extremely hot in the summer or drafty in the winter you may consider a triple honeycomb shade that offers a high R-value for good insulation.  It will make your room more comfortable and save you money on your energy bill.

stay tuned for part two....
