A key benefit of any window treatment is protection. Whether you prefer shutters, shades, blinds, curtains/draperies or whatever, they all will protect your valuables from damaging sunlight. If your furniture, floor coverings, wall hangings or other accessories are exposed to the sunlight for an extended period, they’re likely to be harmed by the sun’s UV rays and will fade, discolor, warp or crack over time. By choosing the right window covering, you can prevent these costly misfortunes. A particular favorite around here in Central Florida are Solar Rollers Screen shades which block the sun’s glare without blocking your beautiful view! –Yes, it’s true.
Another primary reason for window treatments is that they help you to control the amount of light coming into your home. If you’d like to filter the light rays for a special effect, we can make it happen. If you’d rather have a subdued environment, we can use a room darkening treatment, covering your windows and fully reduce the light. You might even sleep peacefully during the daytime. But if you want natural light to do some work or just to enjoy a bright cheery atmosphere inside, you can open up the shades or draperies/ curtains as wide as you please! Let sun shine in!
Window treatments can most certainly provide privacy in your environment. By closing the shades, curtains or draperies you can cover the windows fully and prevent others from seeing into your property, whether inside or out. They’re also commonly installed in offices, where privacy is required. Security is a prevalent concern of all property owners especially when they’re away, anytime! By closing your draperies, curtains or shades, potential intruders can’t see in, which raises doubt and hopefully spurs them away to other targets, (e.g. your neighbors)
Most window treatments are good insulators. When it is really hot outside the covering on your windows will help keep the heat out and the cool air in…In the same way, during winter, the heat stays in and the cold stays out where it belongs. So you should be using less of the heating and cooling equipment, year after year – resulting in annual energy savings! (Go green!)
