Earth Day is April 22 and some homeowners will take the day's message to heart and take a good long look at their carbon footprints. Improving your home's energy-efficiency may seem like a daunting task, but with today's window treatments, you can cut down on your utility bills and improve the look of your home for very little money.

Honeycomb cellular shades have become wildly popular for homeowners due to their ingenious cell technology that provides additional insulation. The shades are available in many styles and colors and can be custom-built to fit your windows. The shades can also be manufactured in light-filtering and blackout varieties, making them perfect for bedrooms.

Another option that will decrease your energy usage are roller shades. These shades ride a track on the inside of your window pane and will provide superior coverage from air leakage. The fabric style of the window covering will add depth and texture to your living spaces, and is very easy to open and close.

No matter which option you choose, you can do your part for the environment and instantly renew the look of your home for spring.
