There are several huge steps that we take in life that can be defining moments for our growth and development. Our first step, our first word. Our first day of school and our first crush. We all know the trepidation that is felt when we first get behind the wheel of a vehicle, and the excitement of actually owning our first car. Who we are as people is defined by how we react and work with our first steps. Buying our first home is just another major step. Whether it’s an apartment in the city, a house in the suburbs, or a ranch in the country, we all want our first space to be as perfect as possible. Or at least as perfectly as we can have it on our budgets. So when we think about renovations, the first thought that goes into a purchase is whether it is affordable, rather than whether it fits the space. So when window treatments come up, it’s important to look for ones that can fit the budget without losing out in the areas of appearance and versatility.
Roller shades offer ease of use along with the affordable price tag, a bargain deal for superior quality. Cordless roller shades have a simplistic design that belies the fine control and quality light filtration offered by this versatile window treatment. With a wide variety of patterns and colors, no two rooms will look exactly alike with roller shades. New families will enjoy the added control of the cordless maneuverability, while being at ease with not having to keep the cord away from pets and children. Not only are there options for patterns and colors, but the design of roller shades allows them to be manufactured in varying degrees of light filtration, from some light to complete blackout roller shades.
If a little more efficiency is desired though, cellular shades are another unique option that tops the list between affordability and usability. Cellular shades one of a kind design traps air and heat in between its dual layered rolls, keeping the house warm in the winter and cool in the summer. These shades also have a great effect on the heating bill because of this design. Most heat is lost through windows, so using cellular shades will cut down on costs later on. Like with roller shades, cellular shades are cordless, allowing for finer control over lighting and privacy.
Finally, pleated shades are a great option for combining ease of use, affordability with expert modern looks.
