GRAND RAPIDS, Mich (WOTV) - A double-strength treatment can make you feel better about your windows almost overnight! Pair shades with panels to gain color and pattern, add different layers of privacy without sacrificing light and reduce heat gain in the hot months and heat loss in the cold months.
The inside mounted shades create a layer of insulation between the window and the room. Full-length outside-mount insulated curtain panels work the same way.
Layered coverings maximize options for privacy, light control and energy efficiency. Open a blackout shade and close panels for filtered light. Close a cellular shade and insulated panels to prevent heat loss. Or install a top-down/bottom-up shade for light WITH privacy.
For easy control, choose curtains with rings or grommets and blinds or shades with remote controls. Cordless systems ensure safety for children as well. Layers are great for hiding flaws.
Visually, you can enlarge a windows size by hanging panels 6-8 inches above the window frame or beyond each side. I’d consider that “thinking outside the box!”
Let the professionals at Standale Interiors help make your home more energy efficient. And have fun doing it because this is 4 you.
