Window treatments don’t just provide better interior design and aesthetics. They can also be highly functional, depending on how they were built and what their function might be. That being said, there are several functional window treatments that can be added to a home to improve energy efficiency, privacy, and aesthetics.
- Cellular shades which are made of honeycomb-shaped cells that trap air and provide insulation, which can help lower energy costs by reducing the need for heating and cooling.
- Roller shades are made of a single piece of fabric that rolls up and down, and can be used to block out light or provide privacy.
- Roman shades are effectively made of folded fabric that can be raised and lowered, and can provide both light control and privacy.
- Solar shades use a type of mesh fabric that can block out the sun’s rays while still allowing natural light to enter the room.
Finally, probably the most efficient and functional custom window treatments Denver Blind Company offers are motorized window treatments. These include automatic, smart and remote control wireless blinds, which can be adjusted through the use of a remote or through a smart home application, and can in some cases be programmed to automatically adjust based on the time of day or temperature, providing greater convenience and improved energy efficiency.
