Window coverings can be easy to ignore in the summer. Sure, we might need to block out the sun sometimes, but more often we’re throwing open our windows and embracing the joy of natural light. We know all too well how early the sun will be setting in the winter months! And now that the days are getting shorter, we’re drawing our shades earlier to gain some privacy.
You might start to notice the window coverings that don’t work as well in your home, the ones that let in more light than you’d like or don’t provide the privacy you need. You might even notice the spots that lack a window treatment at all: that random window in a closet or the patio door that stumped you.
We’re happy to partner with Graber Blinds to provide our clients many options for their window treatment needs. One of the most popular options Graber provides is cellular shades. Cellular shades cover a range of design styles. They are also inconspicuous enough to fade into the background of a room or be layered with other window treatments like curtains.
Here is a basic overview on all things cellular shade:
Cellular shades are the most energy efficient standard window coverings on the market. The cells trap air which essentially works as another layer of insulation for your home—particularly useful on large windows (and our Midwestern winters!). Less heat loss equals lower energy bills and cozier rooms.
Light and Privacy
There are several options for light and privacy levels with cellular shades.
As with light and privacy, there are several control options for cellular shades.
Cellular shades are also endlessly adaptable for each room’s lighting needs.
Cellular shades are adaptable for unique window shapes and configurations. Arched windows can be easily accommodated, as can wide windows—up to 192 inches! And with the Slide Vue configuration described above, Graber’s cellular shades can even be used on sliding and patio doors. When all of your windows can be outfitted with the same window treatment, the design of your home’s interiors feels more cohesive and pulled-together.
