Your window coverings functional in providing shade and privacy and they can also enhance the overall style of your home’s interior. Here are some benefits to installing custom blinds that you might not have considered.
Improve Energy Efficiency
Many types of window treatments will help improve your home’s energy efficiency. They offer additional insulation to your window, helping to prevent heat loss in the winter and heat from getting inside during the summer. This will reduce the strain on your heating and cooling system, resulting in lower energy bills.
Professional measuring and installation is very important in making your window coverings more energy efficient. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, properly installed window coverings can cut heat loss by as much as 25 percent. You can read more about the different types of window treatments that will help reduce energy loss in their article “Energy Efficient Window Treatments”.
One of the most energy efficient window treatments on the market are the honeycomb-style blinds. Honeycomb shades have a layered design that traps air in little honeycomb shaped cells. That trapped air acts as additional insulation between the window and your indoor space, reducing heat loss in the winter and heat from getting inside in the summer.
Safe for Children and Pets
Dangling cords can pose a safety hazard to infants, young children and pets. Window covering companies offer a range of kid-friendly cordless window coverings. Many of their window treatments are cordless, operated by internal mechanism and simply by just pulling them up or down. You can even purchase motorized blinds which go up and down conveniently with the touch of a button! Choose from a variety of styles and ask the designer about their custom options.
Control natural light in your home.
Blinds allow you to better control the amount of natural light entering your home, especially compared to curtains. You can have window treatments in different sizes of slats and can open and close them as much or as little as you want. Plus, you can purchase sheer blinds and window shades that allow in more light or black-out blinds to help keep a room dark.
