For homeowners considering their interior design options, shades and blinds provide much more than shield from the sunlight. Today's window treatments are made from eco-friendly materials, contain energy-saving qualities and the nearly unlimited style options can make your house come together beautifully, according to The Des Moines Register.

Those who think that drapes are the only option should reconsider. Shades can protect your furniture from sun damage and fading, and can fit nearly any window space. Roller shades are the most popular option, because they are easy to use and come in different color styles and opacity levels to fit your needs.

According to the news source, natural fibers and other eco-friendly designs have begun to take more market share as homeowners try to reduce their carbon footprint. With the new options on the market for shades and blinds, it's no wonder why many interior designers aren't looking back.

If you're looking for an easy way to stay energy efficient, consider honeycomb cell shades. These offer insulation for heat or air conditioning which could save you money on your energy bills.
