Depending on your preferences, you're either jumping for joy this time of year as we head towards winter in the Pacific Northwest, or mourning the loss of summer, counting the days until it's back. Regardless of your position, the fact that the air has a sudden chill which will only get colder as the season progresses, brings much needed preparation with which we can all agree. As much as Washington is beautiful in the fall and winter, the majority of us still prefer to be warm when inside our home. The worst is when the temperatures drop, your heat is on, yet you are still shivering and dressing in layers trying to figure out where that expensive heat is going. We want to help you avoid this frustration, by sharing the #1 Window Treatment Sold for Insulation by Snohomish Budget Blinds in Millcreek.
The #1 Window Treatment Sold for Insulation is......Honeycomb Shades!
Honeycomb Shades, also known as Cellular Shades, actually trap the heat in the pockets (AKA "cell") of the shade. Naturally trapping the heat, they come in different cell sizes to maximize the level of insulation. You can choose a single cell, double cell, and even a triple cell to really make sure you get the most heat to stay in your home. Because they are highly customizable, they are ideal for windows of all shapes and sizes, and are suitable for kids and pets due to their cordless and motorized options.
Because cellular shades provide so much insulation, many people enjoy dressing them up during the colder seasons to emphasize the season or holiday. By adding Drapes, Curtains, or other window treatments to spice up the room, not only are you adding style, but additional insulation as well. Plus, ese shades can be combined with a pleated fabric on the top to let in natural light, and a cellular fabric on the bottom for additional privacy and insulation.
By choosing Honeycomb shades that close from top to bottom, or bottom to top, you have multiple lighting and privacy options while still fully insulating your home. Maybe you enjoy natural light in the daytime -- no problem. Have half the shades drawn up, letting in light, with the option of lowering the full length of the window shade and closing the drapes at night for a warm, cozy evening inside.
There are so many different window treatment combinations to fit your needs and styles. Whether you're in Kirkland, Seattle, Lynnwood, or Canyon Park, now is the time to prepare for the cold weather, before you find yourself shivering and frustrated with your heat blasting.
