How Do You Like Your Window Treatments?

Blinds and shades serve a common purpose of covering windows, but these two different types of window treatments operate differently. Blinds appeal to people who are “tilters” — people who like to leave the window treatment in place and tilt the slats to see out and let light in. Shades appeal to people who are “lifters” — people who want a completely unobstructed view when the window covering is open, and total privacy and light control when closed. Our sales consultants at Windo VanGo serving Baltimore, can show you window treatments options that will match your preferred style.

Use Shades to Protect Drapery from the Sun

Protect Drapery from the SunJust like the bright Baltimore sun will burn your skin when you’re outside, it can also damage items like drapery and furniture inside your home. Anything that receives direct sunlight through your windows is susceptible to damaging UV rays from the sun. Over time, these rays will dull the colors of your drapes, furniture, flooring and other design elements inside your home. To protect the investment you’ve made in your interior design, consider window treatments that truly block the sun’s dangerous UV rays. When style is just as important as protection, look to high-quality shades from Hunter Douglas.Continue Reading

Benefits of Motorizing Your Window Treatments

Here are just a few benefits to window treatment automation:

Increased safety. Even though much improvement has been made to window treatment cord systems over the years, they can still pose a danger to kids and pets. Motorization removes cords completely, vastly improving the child and pet safety of your window treatments.

Ultimate convenience. Some blinds and shades are very large, or in difficult to reach places such as up in skylights or behind bathtubs. Even if window treatments are within reach, motorization features allow you to automatically adjust your shades and blinds based on the time of day, or even the amount of sun shining through the window.

Energy efficiency. Timers and advanced automation systems can help you save energy by reducing your heating and cooling costs. The right shades can help you save up 50% on energy costs.Continue Reading
