Roller Shades

Designer Roller Shades

If your memory of roller shades is only of the heavy vinyl room-darkening shade, you might be interested to learn that roller shades have certainly evolved. At Window Products serving Connecticut, we’re happy to tell you that roller shades are a great choice for many windows in many homes.

Helping Control Energy Costs

If your window is untreated, it can lose up to 50% of your home’s heating and cooling energy. You may be thinking that if you cover your windows, you’ll lose your view, but covering them at least at night and during very sunny days in the summer can help make your windows more energy-efficient. Shades and blinds have been designed to reduce the amount of solar heat that passes through the window. If you don’t have any treatments, you might want to consider a Hunter Douglas Designer Roller Shade. They come in many different colors and textures that will not only enhance your window but also insulate it, keeping your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. [Read more…]

Child-Safe Lifting Systems

Silhouette® Window Shadings

Silhouette® Window Shadings

Does the following situation sound all too familiar? Mommy puts her pearls around her neck, and Dad puts on a tie—and the toddler is eager to imitate them by using items at hand, often something like the dangling cord of a window treatment. Today, there is no reason for us to lose another child to “Infant Cord Strangulation.” If you have not updated the dangling cords on your functioning shades or blinds, perhaps it is time.

The Window Covering Industry uses many methods to communicate the potential hazards of corded window treatments. The use of tags helps communicate the important message of child safety and the potential strangulation hazards of corded window treatments. [Read more…]

Protect Your Floors & Furniture From Harmful UV Rays

UV RaysPeople often inaccurately think that UV damage occurs only during the summer months. However, during the winter, when the sun is lower on the horizon, the harsh glare and the lack of leaves allows the sun to enter farther into a room, which can cause additional UV damage without your even knowing it. If your home has windows that are not covered properly, your belongings will likely experience UV damage.

At Window Products serving Fairfield County, we’ll be happy to help you select window treatments that will not only look stylish but will also protect your belongings.

How to Tell if You Have UV Damage

UV radiation is responsible for approximately 40 to 60 percent of fading. UV damage is permanent and can cause fading anywhere the sunlight reaches. Pull back the corner of your throw rug, move the painting on the wall, or turn your couch cushion over to see if fading has occurred. If so, it’s time to make a change. [Read more…]
