Are Roller Shades for You?
Roller shades just never go out of style. From the heavy vinyl of their origins to now, the materials used for roller shades have evolved and improved, and roller shades are a great option for many of today’s homes. Talk to a trained consultant at Shutter Guy serving Charleston. We’ll be happy to help you determine if roller shades are right for you.
Energy Savings With Roller Shades
An untreated window can lose up to 50% of a home’s heating and cooling energy. It just makes sense to have some sort of window treatment plan in place. If you’re concerned about losing your view, think about this: Any shades or blinds that carry a vertical line can be pulled up and totally disappear under a valance or blend into the woodwork. Blinds and shades have been designed to reduce the amount of solar heat that passes through the window. 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.
Outdoor Shades For Sunrooms and Patios
Check out the Hunter Douglas Designer Screen Shades Collection. These shades provide excellent UV protection through a great selection of translucent fabrics that allow you to enjoy the view of your outdoors. In the Hunter Douglas Alustra® Collection of Screen Shades and Roller Shades, the Screen Shades have more of a contemporary look to them due to the combination of fabrics and hardware. The Roller Shades are a nice alternative to the woven woods through the use of their light-filtering fabric selection.
A Few Tips for Treating Your Window
- Take a picture of your home from the outside and take note of the products and colors of your existing window treatments. Are they all the same color? Carry the same line (vertical or horizontal)?
- 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. When in doubt about color and texture on your windows, less is best.
