WWOWTWonderful World of Window Treatments

If you’re especially interested in shades, you’ll want to take a look at these important 3 benefits.

1. Privacy When you buy window shades, you’ll definitely get privacy. This is especially true if you decide to get honeycomb shades, which are multi-layered. You can put them on your bathroom and bedroom windows – as well as on windows in other places in your home – and have confidence that no one outside will be able to see into your home. If you rank the privacy benefit really high, make sure you get a darker material and go with a triple layer rather than a double layer.

2. Energy Efficiency Another reason why you should consider window shades is for their energy efficiency properties. When you buy and install quality window shades on your windows, you’ll be able to maintain a consistent temperature in your home. This means your residence can stay warmer during the winter and cooler during the winter. And this means your furnace and air conditioner won’t have to overwork just to maintain a comfortable indoor temperature. If you’re like most homeowners, you might feel as though you pay too much in utilities. Boosting energy efficiency, though things like quality windows and window shades will reduce your utility bills.

3. Light Control
Yet another important benefit offered by window shades is light control. With window shades, you’ll be able to regulate how much light gets into the various rooms in your home. Honeycomb shades, for instance, can be manufactured in a way that allows for privacy at the bottom while allowing for light to flow into your home from the top.

Window shades for your home are a good idea. And we offer just what you need in terms of products and services. If you have any questions about window shades, shutters, or any other type of window coverings, get in touch with us
