When New Year’s come around, most resolutions range from fitness or diet to other personal goals. Why not make a resolution to update your home decor with new window coverings? Not only do updated window coverings offer a substantial boost to the look of your home, but there are several practical factors to update your blinds or shades as well.
What Blinds or Shades Are Right For You?
Okay, so you’ve decided to make a commitment to updating your homes decor, namely, your blinds and shades. Well here are a few types of blinds and shades that may fit your home perfectly.
Cellular, otherwise known as honeycomb shades, have been around for years, but have recently become a home necessity for many homeowners, especially in Colorado. Cellular shades offer a stylish, simple and eco-friendly solution for your window coverings. Their affordable, pocketed design traps air at the window, helping to regulate the interior temperature of your home year-round, which can a big factor when choosing new window coverings.
On top of being very functional for Colorado’s weather, cellular shades look beautiful in just about any home. They are both stylish and elegant and come in a wide variety of colors and styles, assuring that you can make honeycomb shades an integral part of your home’s decor.
Manually adjustable blinds and shades can be arduous and the cords and tools used to adjust them can both get in the way and be dangerous if young children and pets are present. For the new year, look into motorizing all of the window coverings in your home. Simple and elegant, at the push of a button, control all of the window coverings of your home.
Automation of your blinds and shades and programming them to open or close automatically can greatly reduce stress and keep your home shaded at all times of the day. For homeowners with different styles, sizes and shapes of windows, this could be a necessity.
In Colorado, we are all used to the long Summer months and the constant presence of sunlight. Of course, this is great for fans of the outdoors, but for our homes and decor, we need to be a little more careful. To protect your home and your family from dangerous UV rays, consider investing in easy-to-use roller shades. Roller shades come in almost an endless variety of colors and styles and are made from a variety of fabrics depending on both your home’s decor and the specific window situation.
Roller shades can also be made of solarized material, also known as solar shades, so that you may both protect from the sunlight yet still be able to view your perfect Colorado scenery. Solar shades come in differing degrees of opacity so that you can match your new solar shades to the amount of sunlight that you wish to let into your home.
