Guide to redirecting unwanted window glare, bringing in natural light, and replenishing your rest.
Autumn is known for its gorgeous colors, making it one of the prettiest times of the year. But, the leaves fall off so fast and winter isn’t far behind. Drizzling rain and chilly temperatures can be a downer –and we can’t forget that daylight savings makes 6 PM feel like bedtime. Instead of feeling gloomy , embrace the changing light and fix common fall window issues with our simple tips. Below we’ve included solutions for common window issues.
Beat the Glare
We absolutely love looking at the changing leaves and enjoy our outdoor view during this time of year. It’s hard to balance having a view and the right amount of light. Bare windows can cause glare, making your rooms uncomfortably bright for watching television. This is one of the top window issues we see. The right window treatments will give you the ability to enjoy your view while fighting off the glare. Solar Shades are perfect for maintaining your view while cutting down on the glare. They filter the incoming light while still making it possible to see outside. Solar Shades are available in a ton of cool designer colors and patterns.
Have you been feeling sleepy lately? It’s probably due to the time change. It’s getting darker earlier, which is throwing off your sleep schedule! Don’t let the Autumn changes and different lighting affect your sleep patterns. Window issues in the bedroom can be easily resolved. The appropriate bedroom window treatments can block the light so your sleep isn’t disturbed. Room darkening and blackout shades are our top request for bedroom windows. Dual Shades aka Zebra Shades are a popular choice because of their sleek design and simple control. They make your bedroom dark and cozy or shift the panels open for filtered light and a view outdoors. Another option is Roller Shades with light blocking channels. These channels alleviate any light coming through from the sides of your shades. Dont forget about motorization for the ultimate convenience.
Bring in the Light
Fall days can be dreary, but that doesn’t mean you have to use artificial light to illuminate your home. We have window treatments that will help you embrace the natural sunlight while maintaining your privacy. Many of our window coverings offer the top down/bottom up option. This feature allows you to lower your shades from the top in addition to the traditional way of lifting them from the bottom. This means you can let plenty of natural light in from the top while the bottom still allows you to maintain privacy. Top down/bottom up shades will allow you to enjoy your view while protecting your privacy, it’s a win win!
