The Importance of Window Treatments in Your Home
Window treatments such as blinds, shutters and valances add an aesthetic appeal to your home, but their function and importance goes far beyond their elegant look. When searching for the perfect window treatment for you home, there are several factors to take into consideration.
Regulate UV rays and sunlight
We use sunblock when we spend the day out in the sun, but we don’t often think about the UV rays in our home. Not only do window treatments help control the amount of UV rays and sunlight that enter your home, they preserve your floors, walls, and furniture as well. Constant exposure to sunlight can fade wood floods, furniture, and paint.
Many window treatments allow for total control of how much sunlight enters your home. This allows you to benefit from natural sunlight during the day, giving you the option to keep the artificial lights off and save energy. On the flip side, choosing to have your blinds or other window treatment closed on hot, sunny days helps keep your home cool, saving you energy costs in cooling. The energy efficiency benefits of window treatments work both ways.
Some days, we want an abundance of sunlight to light up our homes. Other days, we’d rather keep the blinds shut. It’s important to have this choice, especially for privacy. As much as we (sometimes) enjoy our neighbors, there’s always the nosy one waving from the street as they see you through the windows. Window treatments, especially blinds and sheers, give you the option of privacy.
Of course, one of the most important reasons we look to window treatments is their ability to transform your home. Your lovely tailored valances certainly bring the room together in terms of style, but they do much more than just look stylish. Window treatments bring many benefits to the home.
