You might think of roller shades as being those heavy vinyl numbers from last century that many people used for room darkening. Well, over the years, they’ve evolved and become so much more. They’re functional and attractive, and they are still a great choice for many windows in many homes. To see them in action, talk to a trained consultant at Georgia Blinds & Interiors here in Atlanta. You’ll be happy you did!
Saving Energy With Roller Shades
Some people don’t put treatments on windows because they don’t want to lose their view. However, any shades or blinds that carry a vertical line can be pulled up and totally disappear under a valance or blend into the woodwork. And because you can lose up to 50% of your home’s heating and cooling costs out the window, it’s important to at least cover it at night and or during very sunny days in the summer to help make your windows more energy-efficient. 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.
Other Options for Roller Shades
The products in the Hunter Douglas Designer Screen Shades Collection provide excellent UV protection through a great selection of translucent fabrics that allow you to enjoy the view of your outdoors. The Hunter Douglas Alustra® Collection of Screen Shades offers more of a contemporary look due to their combination of fabrics and hardware. In the same collection, the Roller Shades are a nice alternative to the woven woods through the use of their light-filtering fabric selection.
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? Do they carry the same line (vertical or horizontal)? What new products would help enhance the look from the curb?
- 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.
- We all need to be more energy-efficient. Let Roller Shades or Screen Shades do that in your home!
