Protect Your Furnishings While Maintaining Your View

For many of us, the centerpiece of our living room is the beautiful view, but with that view often comes an abundance of sun and harsh light. Light filtering window treatments are essential for blocking the UV rays that can damage furnishings and artwork.

For excellent UV protection while maintaining your view of the outdoors, consider a product made from sheer materials such as

Silhouette® Window Shadings,

Pirouette® Window Shadings and

Luminette® Privacy Sheers.

These window treatments can be adjusted to achieve your desired level of light and privacy.

Consider Your Needs for Room Darkening

If your living room has an entertainment center, look for window treatments with glare-controlling or room-darkening features.

While every window treatment allows you some measure of light control, some offer more room darkening benefits than others. A key consideration is fabric type and color. Sheer fabrics typically soften and filter sunlight, while semi-opaque and opaque versions almost completely block it.

If you are looking for optional room darkening capabilities, consider a room darkening liner available on many of our shades. The liner can be sewn directly to the face fabric or, for ultimate flexibility, can operate independently.

Window Treatments for Every Decorating Style

Another consideration, of course, is your decorating style. From modern shades to classic shutters, we have window treatments to complement any décor. Take a look at the slideshow below for more ideas.

Every winter seems to bring a bit more brisk to the air than the year before, especially here in the Des Moines, Iowa area.
