From their beginnings as heavy vinyl pull-downs that helped darken a room to today, roller shades have stood the test of time and come out on top. That’s because they have improved as they’ve evolved and now offer many benefits. Talk to the trained consultants at Bretz Interiors serving the greater Denver area. We’ll be happy to help you determine if roller shades are right for your home.
Energy Savings With Roller Shades
If your windows are untreated, up to 50% of your home’s heating and cooling costs might be going out the window. Even if you’re afraid of ruining your view, you should be aware that, even if you close shades only at night or during very sunny days in the summer, you could make your windows more energy-efficient. It might help to know that 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 or 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.
Screen Shades for a Sunroom or Patio
Check out the Hunter Douglas Designer Screen Shades Collection—the products in the line 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, you can find screen shades that offer a more contemporary look due to the combination of fabrics and hardware. The Roller Shades in the collection are a nice alternative to the woven woods through the use of their light-filtering fabric selection.
Things to Remember
- At night, an untreated window will appear to be a shiny big black spot, unless it has lighting outside that is turned on and shining from the ground up.
- 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.
- We all need to be more energy-efficient. Let Roller Shades or Screen Shades do that in your home!
