Bedroom Window Coverings
Finding the perfect window coverings for your bedroom can be difficult. The first step is figuring out why you need window coverings and what you need specifically for your bedroom windows. The easiest way to figure this out is to ask yourself some questions.
Do you prefer to sleep in complete darkness?If you sleep best in complete darkness, then you’ll want blackout shades in your bedroom. A small amount of light may come through the sides, if you have an inside mount, but it will be minimal, if any. With blackout shades, you may get the best night sleep you’ve ever had.
Do you want the option of no light or filtered light, all in one shade?Simply choosing a blackout shade means you can either have them open or have them closed. There is nothing in between. However, the day/night cellular shades are the perfect solution. Essentially, you’re getting two shades in one. Choose blackout or light filtering or even some of both, depending on your needs.
Do you want to retain your view but block harmful UV rays?Select solar shades let you still see outside when the shade is drawn, but it blocks UV rays and helps keep your bedroom cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. Blocking UV rays also helps keep your furniture, carpet, and rugs from fading or having sun damage.
Do you want to reduce the glare on your TV in your bedroom?If you watch TV in your bedroom, then your best choice is either a blackout shade or a solar shade. Get the best viewing experience possible, all from the comfort of your bed. But if you’d like to eliminate the glare but still have light coming through, choose a solar shade for your bedroom window coverings.
Do you want a more comfortable room temperature without paying more energy costs?
If the temperature is too cold or too warm in your bedroom, it can be difficult to sleep well. With cellular shades, also called honeycomb shades, your room’s internal temperature will stay warm in the winter and cool in the summer. The cell shade’s construction helps insulate your windows, ultimately saving you money on energy costs. You can also combine your needs and get a blackout cell shade to get the best of both worlds.
You can create your dream bedroom with the perfect window coverings. You just have to know what you’re looking for, and we’ll help you with the rest.
