If you thought you had to sacrifice style points for energy-efficient window coverings then think again. Our innovative energy-efficient window coverings provide effective insulation, offering your home increased protection against heat loss during the winter and heat gain during the summer. Research shows that as much as 50% of a home's heating and cooling energy can be lost through its windows. So rather than cranking up your heat or air conditioning to avoid uncomfortable temperatures inside your home, let us help with an array of window treatments that are both practical and energy-efficient, while also stylishly on-trend.
Our cellular shades come in an array of décor-friendly colors and their honeycomb-shaped pockets or ‘cells’ keep air from escaping or entering your home to enhance a room's overall energy efficiency. Cellular shades offer a modern appearance with outstanding insulation properties. With a wide range of opacity choices, from transparent, to light-filtering, to room-darkening— you customize the amount of natural light entering your home. Choose from a vast selection of the latest fabrics and colors to ensure a perfect match with your home décor. Our cellular shades feature extra soft, plush cellular fabric that helps keep homes warm in the winter and cool in the summer, saving on energy costs.
When we think of affordable window coverings for insulation, draperies are first to come to mind! From subtle to dramatic styling, nothing changes a room’s décor and your home’s environment like designer-inspired draperies. Layering draperies over window blinds, shades or shutters adds additional energy-saving insulation that is perfect for every home. Whether you’re looking to evoke a light, flirtatious mood or enhance a room’s insulation, draperies provide a stunning amount of options to meet your unique needs. Choose from a variety of captivating colors, fabrics and textures that instantly transform a room or your entire home. Layering them with light-filtering or room-darkening liners also helps control light gaps and improve insulation retention. To maximize energy efficiency, consider our floor-to-ceiling drapes that fold back against the wall. This allows the drapes to seal off the window, preventing drafts and loss of heat through convection. Time to explore our world of drapery and prepare to be inspired!
