Many people here in the Charleston area enjoy beautiful views out their windows. Unfortunately, though, large uncovered windows can let in too much sun and heat, decreasing the energy efficiency of your home and damaging your interiors. So how can you enjoy the view while blocking the light? Schedule an in-home appointment to see the variety of window treatments we have available to help you diffuse light but still maintain your view.
Window Coverings that Diffuse Light
Shades that filter light rather than block it allow you to have some view through your window while providing a barrier against UV rays. These window treatments:
- Diffuse the harsh sunlight and spread it evenly throughout the room
- Filter out the brightness, glare and UV rays to protect your furniture and floors from fading
- Allow for maximum daylight hours and reduce the need for artificial light
- Provide flexibility based on the amount of light and privacy you need throughout the day
- Add dramatic softness at the window
Sheers shades are one of the most popular window covering styles to help you diffuse light and maintain your view. From a design perspective, sheers soften and diffuse the natural light coming into a room, creating a warm atmosphere while softly filtering out brightness, glare and harmful ultraviolet rays. Sheer shades are available in a variety of trend-setting fabrics and colors, sheers provide precise light control with translucent or room-darkening vane opacity options. Soft face fabric is permanently bonded to fabric vanes, offering full view-through and discreet privacy.
Automating your window coverings allows you to program when they’re open and closed, further protecting your interiors when the sun is at its brightest and opening up your view when you’re home. Benefits of motorization include:
- Enhanced Child and Pet Safety
