5 Ways Window Shades and Blinds Will Improve Your Home

Cellular, sheer, wood, roller, roman, panel – no matter what kind of window covering you choose, you’ll find shades and blinds offer distinct advantages in both style and substance. If you’re hoping to make your home not only more beautiful, but also more functional, shades and blinds are your best choice. Here’s why.

1.      A clean, crisp look

Shades and blinds enhance your carefully crafted décor. Available in matching and complementary colors, their minimalist aesthetic and timeless appeal balances any style, while keeping all the attention on your furnishings and decorations.

 2.      Easy to care for

Most shades and blinds need only a quick wipe with a dust cloth or a light vacuuming once or twice a year to look their best. And, unlike curtains, there’s no need to remove them for laundering or dry cleaning. Check out our Comfortex Window Fashions suggestions on how to clean different types of window shades.

 3.      Customizable

Choose from hundreds of fabrics and colors. Mix and match colors to contrast or complement your wall color. Select the sleek and modern look of roller shades, the soft feel of sheer shadings, the romantic folds of roman shades, or the classic charm of wood blinds. You can even pair blinds and shades along with traditional fabric panels to get all the functionality you need and the layered look you want.

4.      Simple to install

With just a few simple measurements and a screwdriver, many blinds and shades make an easy DIY project that can transform a room in no time at all. Accurate measuring is important, and many custom window treatment websites offer instructions or videos on how to measure to ensure a proper fit.

5.      Control light, views, privacy, security, and temperature

Blinds and shades offer you a full range of precision adjustments. Raise them and they practically disappear, offering unobstructed views. Lowered, they not only provide complete privacy, but also protect against harmful UV rays that can fade your wood floor and furnishings. Manage your privacy-

to-light ratio by tilting slats and vanes open or closed. Choose cellular shades to increase insulation and reduce energy costs. Motorized shades allow you to eliminate potentially dangerous cords, easily adjust out-of-reach windows, and increase your home’s security with smart-home apps that give you the option to open and close shades remotely, even while at work or on vacation.
