Spring brings us warmer weather, longer sunnier days, and so much beauty. It’s time to bring that same beauty into your home or office. Here are a few window treatment ideas to help bring life to your space this season.
Curtains, whether ripple fold or pinch pleat, add a hint of elegance to any space. Choosing drapery with a sheer fabric allow you to enjoy the sunlight and Spring views without sacrificing privacy.
Solar shades are energy efficient window treatments. They help protect your home, art, and furniture from harsh UV rays and prevent excessive sunlight from getting in. With many levels of “openness” available, you can choose how much sunlight you want to let in, and what level of privacy you prefer. For example, 1% Solar Shades offer the best view, but this also means it lets in more sunlight and heat whereas 10% solar shades offer the most energy efficiency, light filtration, and temperature control, but you lose most of your view.
