It’s never a bad time to ask yourself, “Are my window treatments protecting my furniture and rugs from harmful UV rays?” At The Shutter Guy serving the Charleston area, we’ll help you find a solution for every room as well as the right look and protection you need.
As popular today as they were years ago, roller shades and solar screen shades have never truly gone out of style. They offer a clean sleek look that is perfect for any room in your home. However, each shade has different characteristics. For example, roller shades help darken a room or filter light, and they also offer more privacy than a solar screen shade.
Ways to Use Roller and Solar Screen Shades
Roller and solar screen shades take up less space than other window treatments because they are normally mounted inside the window frame. To add color or drama to the room, you can add draperies or drapery side panels. Or you can upgrade to a variety of top treatments that will conceal the fabric roll and clutch. You can even complement or match your shade with a separate fabric for the top. For a finished look select from a wide variety of bottom treatment options.
Hunter Douglas Designer Roller Shades
Designer roller shades come in a multitude of fabric selections, from traditional solid colors or floral patterns in a range of sheer to opaque fabrics. These shades protect your furniture, flooring, and art from fading, with a minimum of 75% protection from harmful UV rays. They are perfect for any room, including bathrooms, kitchens, dens, and children’s rooms.
Hunter Douglas Designer Solar Screen Shades
Solar screen shades are all about the tightness of the weave as it relates to the shade percentage it provides—3%, 5%, or 10%. If the weave is loose, it will allow more light in and vice versa. For example, if a shade has an openness factor of 10%, more light will come into the room. For this reason, Designer Screen Shades protect from fading with a minimum of 75% UV protection. Translucent Designer Screen Shades combine style and functional technology to give you exceptional UV protection without obstructing your view of the outdoors. Perfect for your patio or sunroom, they are sturdy and come in easy-to-clean fabrics from very sheer to semi-sheer.
