Why does summer heat define where and when you can appreciate the comfort of your own home?

Instead of depriving yourself of natural light or scenic views, see about new window treatments.

These custom window treatments are as beautiful as they are practical.

Roman Shades Disperse Harsh Sunlight

Roman shades are increasingly common because they provide attractive designs while being uncomplicated to use and maintain. These pleated window treatments fold up tightly when open and offer you a clean, appealing look when down. These controls can even be motorized for total convenience. New custom Roman shades provide privacy and light control.

And if you prefer higher energy efficiency, Solera® Soft Shades merge the appearance of Roman shades with the insulating cells of honeycomb shades. Choose from a variety of colors and fabric opacities to ensure you decide how much light and heat enter the room. These pockets of air defend against heat and sunlight, helping you reduce your energy use.

Honeycomb Shades Insulate Against Heat

When insulation is the top priority, full honeycomb shades are a fantastic choice. These shades come in single-, double- and triple-cell varieties, giving you more possibilities depending on your home’s needs. Some are also made with multiple layers of fabric for an even better layer of protection. You won't have to worry about obstructing the window entirely, because translucent fabrics provide a cozy glow as sunlight is dispersed into the room.

Duette® Honeycomb Shades are the most energy-efficient honeycomb shades available. You can choose between two styles, multiple layers of fabric and different pleat sizes for a truly personalized final product. You can even include blackout or light diffusion for the ultimate control over sunlight heat.
