You’ve just purchased that new home. You’re standing in your family room admiring the breath taking views. It’s confirmation that the large windows you decided to go with were the right decision. Suddenly you realize the light streaming through those windows you love will eventually start to fade your new leather furniture and beautiful hardwood floors.
There are three things to consider when purchasing window coverings for your new home. Sun protection, aesthetics and privacy. Sun protection is probably the most overlooked factor.
Besides helping with the temperature control of your home, window coverings can also help protect your furniture and floors from fading over time. This can be accomplished by products as inexpensive as faux wood or aluminum blinds. But, those are just two of many products that will allow you to retain your views and protect your investment at the same time.
The photo above is an example of the Kathy Ireland Tri-light shade. This blind performs like a top-down/bottom-up shade, but the sheer pleated shade on top offers more benefits. It diffuses harsh light entering the room, offers moderate privacy during the day and, most importantly, it protects your furniture and floors from harmful UV rays.
Now that you know you have choices which will beautify your home, allow you to retain your views and, at the same time, protect your hard earned investment, give us a call to explore your options. Then, all that’s left is to sit back, relax and enjoy.
