Solar Shades: How They Benefit Your Home
Have you ever been in a room without window coverings in the middle of the afternoon with the Colorado sun glaring in? We all know that room is going to be hot! Not only will your cooling costs be higher but your furniture and floor coverings will sun fade quickly too. So how do you keep the sun from glaring in? Solar shades benefit your home by keeping it more energy efficient while still adding beauty and charm.
How Solar Shades Work
Imagine solar shades like a pair on sunglasses. Just as sunglasses shield and filter sunlight for our eyes, they do the same for windows. The shades diffuse the natural sunlight and block harmful UV rays. This helps to reduce glare and keep rooms cooler while protecting furniture and flooring.
Benefits of Solar Shades
Maintaining your view is an important consideration when it comes to choosing the right window treatment for your home. Solar shades are a great option because even when fully lowered, they can still maintain visibility of the incredible Rocky Mountains or Downtown skyline. Our shades have different levels of openness, which determine how much light is filtered through the fabric. They also come in a variety of colors and textures, making is easy to find the one to match your homes style and décor.
Another benefit is their capability to be motorized. Motorization can add convenience to those hard to reach upper windows and skylights, which will add simplicity to your life. Motorization also adds a coolness factor to wow your friends and family. Many of our products can be controlled by remote or by an app on your phone.
Exterior Solar Shades
Solar shades are not just for the inside of your home. Solar patio shades are mildew, corrosion and flame resistant. These features make them a great option for keeping your outdoor spaces cool for relaxing or hosting parties. Now you can turn those hot outdoor areas into added useful square footage to your home!
So whether you are needing to keep harmful sun glare out of your home or off your patio, solar shades are a perfect way to create that cool and relaxing environment you are looking for.
