Sun Protection Solutions for Window Treatments

When it’s May and we’re still wearing toques & scarves, we must be in Canada. Spring still feels a long way away, but you know as well as I do, that it really is just around the corner. Before we know it, everything will be in bloom, the bugs will be out and we’ll be complaining about the heat. It’s time to start thinking about your windows and how they can provide the best Sun Protection solutions to suit your needs.

Whether you’ve just bought your first home or are looking to “facelift” your existing one, window coverings can completely set the mood of a room. From sleek, modern roller shades to soft cascading draperies, your window fashions have a lot to say about your style. But one thing is constant: they control the light.

Sun Protection, aesthetics & privacy are the three major factors we consider when purchasing window coverings; and when it comes to sun protection, the possibilities are endless.

Beyond helping with the temperature control of your home, room-darkening window fashions will also help to protect your furniture & floors from fading over time. This can be achieved by products as inexpensive as faux-wood or mini blinds, but these really are just the tip of the iceberg. So many beautiful products exist which allow you to optimize your view by providing multiple effects.

The Latour Trilight Shade is a beautiful example of this. As shown in the image above, these delightful shades offer two shades in one; allowing you to either feature the sheer pleated shade, the room-darkening cellular shade or (position to your liking) to showcase a combination of both!

The Opera Roller shades & Perfect Sunset Shades from Maxxmar also offer a stylish & functional solution offering two roller shades in one, allowing you to operate each roller shade separately. In the Opera Shades you can choose a soft light-filtering fabric for the front, while still having a blackout option on the back. The Perfect Sunset offers yet another feature adding a full visibility option to the front fabric layer. Full visibility, a sheer light-filtering shade and blackout shade – All in one!

Whether you’re looking for new drapes for your decadent chateau or mini blinds for your humble home office, your windows are your view on the world and we’ll help you get there – On Budget.
