Roller Shades

Designer 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…]
