Fabric Window Shades Ready for Summer

May 24 2010

Summer’s sun is starting to shine. Some places across the country are already seeing temperatures rising over 100 degrees. As the sun’s rays get stronger, it’s important to protect your home. Fabric window shades create a barrier against harmful UV rays that can cause fading or damage to rugs, furniture and art work. Window treatments don’t just filter the sun’s rays; they also help keep warm air out in the summer and warm air in during the colder winter months. Single cell shades are one type of window treatment that helps insulate homes.

The reason cellular shades have become so popular is they are one of the best shades on the market as far as insulation is concerned. They are designed to pocket air leaking in from windows between two layers of material in a honeycomb-style design. As they protect your home from outside elements, your heating and cooling bills will begin to drop as you aren’t spending extra money heating or cooling leaks and drafts in windows.

Cellular shades are available in a ton of color options that fit every season, as well as more neutral colors that work well year-round. Whether you have a room that you like to change the artwork and decorations seasonally, or a are looking for a window shade that will last for years to come, cellular shades are a great choice.

Cordless 9/16” Translucent Single Cell Shades, 9/16” Blackout Single Cell Shadesand Express 9/16” Translucent Single Cell Shades are all quality brands of cellular shade. Due to their popularity, manufacturers often offer them at a reduced price because of their bulk discount.

If you like having light in a room, but don’t want to have your life open to neighbors walking past, Cordless 9/16” Translucent Single Cell Fabric Window Shades are ideal. The layer allows light without harsh glare. These blinds were manufactured to endure for a long time. When possible, some companies will ship within two days of your order.

For those who can’t sleep unless a room is pitch black, Cordless 9/16” Blackout Single Cell Fabric Window Shades block out light effectively. These shades are also great insulators. Photographers may benefit from a dark room when processing their images. These blinds are available without cords for those who have children or pets.
