Keep Your Home Comfortable With These Treatments

As the seasons change, the need to create a comfortable home does as well. Whether you're looking to block out the heat on a late July day or keep the warm air inside on Christmas Eve, your window treatments can help!

Let's take a look at three different window treatments — cellular shades, Venetian blinds, and Roman shades — and discover how they can help keep your home comfortable year-round.

Cellular Shades

Cellular shades are a great choice for homeowners looking for better temperature control. Their honeycomb-shaped cells trap air, creating a layer of insulation, and reducing the amount of heat conduction through your windows. This helps to regulate the temperature in your home, no matter the weather! When properly fit and installed, cellular shades can reduce heat loss by at least 40%, saving you on heating costs.

Venetian Blinds

Venetian blinds have horizontal slats that can be tilted to block out the sun's rays, keeping your home cooler in the summer months. In the winter months, however, these blinds provide less heat loss reduction, so they might not be the best choice if you live in an area with harsher winters. That said, they're still a versatile and popular window treatment option!

Roman Shades

Roman shades are a classic window treatment with a timeless look. Like cellular shades, they can help insulate your home by trapping air in their folds and are great at blocking out sunlight.

Roman shades are available in a variety of fabrics, so you can choose one that best suits your needs. If you live in an area with extreme temperatures, look for a Roman shade made of thick, insulating fabric.
