Roller Shades Never Go out of Style In Baltimore MD

Designer Roller Shade

Designer Roller Shade

Roller shades have withstood the test of time and are still very popular. Many years ago, all we had were the roller shades that came in a heavy vinyl material for room darkening or a softer fabric for diffused light or the old and still attractive sheer curtains. Those were our options! When the pleated shades came into the market, it was a game changer, but the roller shade just kept getting better. It is still a great choice for many windows in many homes.

Save on Energy Costs

Are you aware that an untreated window can lose up to 50% of your home’s heating and cooling energy? It literally goes out the window! You may not want to cover your windows and lose the view, but covering them at least at night and or during very sunny days in the summer can help make your windows more energy-efficient. Your windows should be treated as a function first and then the softer side of draperies can be added.

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. It is referred to as the Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC). 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.Continue Reading
