Window coverings are more than just a fashionable part of your home décor—they're also a great way to conserve energy and keep your family comfortable all year round. Look to Bali for windows that are beautiful and practical, whatever the season.
Cellular shades are the most energy efficient choice. These shades add an extra layer of insulation to keep your rooms warm in the winter. (It's like adding an extra blanket on the bed when it's chilly.) How do they do it? The honeycomb design creates an air pocket to keep the temperature outside from seeping in. Cellular shades can help you keep your cool in the summer too. Whether you choose a light filtering, room darkening, or blackout shade, you can give the AC a rest and save on energy bills.
If your taste is more traditional, try wood and faux wood blinds. They give you a classic look with a modern perk—added insulation. Close the slats to keep your rooms comfortable, whatever the weather. Or tilt them open to let just the right amount of light and heat into the house.
Adding roller and solar shades to your windows is another easy way to manage the thermostat. Like a nice pair of sunglasses, solar shades tone down glare and block UV rays. With an open weave and dark fabric, you get a good view while shielding your room from bright sunshine. Choose a lighter fabric for even better temperature control on hot summer days.
Shutters, like blinds, let you stay cool in the shade when they are fully closed. Open the slats to let in calm breezes while blocking direct rays. Or combine shutters with drapery for double the design possibilities and more insulation.
And speaking of drapery, when you add fabric to the mix you get a soft look that works hard to soak up sunshine. In the winter months drapery keeps rooms cozy and can help reduce heat loss. That translates into savings on your family's heating bills.
