With summer on the way, it is time to think about efficiency in your home. Keeping your home cool during the morning and afternoon with East and West facing windows can be a challenge as the UV rays from direct sunlight can fade fabric, fade furniture and darken and lighten your real wood floors and cabinets. It is important to protect the investments you have made into your home, and there is no simpler, and more beautiful way to accomplish this then to install custom window coverings that are specifically designed to block the strong UV in the morning and afternoon hours.
Sunscreen Roller Shades and Sunscreen Roman Shades add beauty to your home without blocking the view outside. They come in a variety of colors, styles and can be motorized for additional convenience. Solar Shades feature a see-through material that blocks UV rays and the outside elements while maintaining a view. Solar shades operate very similarly to the traditional roller shade. The element that makes Solar Shades unique are their mesh, see-through fabrication. The higher the openness factor of the mesh fabrication, the more light and outside elements can come through the window. Solar shades come in indoor styles as well as outdoor styles to maximize efficiency and placement throughout your home.
Blackout, light blocking cellular shades provide a versatile solution while providing protection from direct UV rays from the sun. Cellular Shades, also known as Honeycomb Shades, feature a solid fabric that stacks like an accordion. When the shade is tilted sideways, it resembles a honeycomb beehive.

Cellular shades come in top-down bottom-up configurations to allow light while still maintaining privacy. A nearly endless selection of styles and colors are available to match perfectly with your home decor.
