Benefits of Window Treatments
Let There Be (Less) Light
Perhaps one of the most obvious benefits of window treatments is the ability to control the amount of light being let into a room. Wide open views and flooding the room with natural light can be great in some instances, but what about bedroom windows at the crack of dawn on a summer weekend? What about the glare of the sun on the TV during your favorite show or movie? Yeah, how does light control sound now? Types of window treatments to control light: light-filtering shades, blackout shades/curtains, slatted blinds.

Whether hot or cold, it’s impressive what window treatments can do to improve energy efficiency and save money on your energy bill. Up to 25% of your heating and cooling can be lost through your windows. Both by improving insulation and blocking sunlight, window treatments will help you maintain a more consistent and comfortable temperature in your house year-round. Types of window treatments to save energy: Honeycomb shades (far and away the best insulator), draperies, shutters.
