Consider Your Options
When considering your window treatment options, there are several important factors to keep in mind. You need to consider factors such as quality, material, price, and style to find the perfect window treatment to fit your house and your budget. Finally, it is important to consider the weather. In a place like the Midwest, you know you need to be prepared for anything from the coldest of winter nights to the hottest of summer days.
When in Doubt, Go for Insulation
Window treatments that feature additional insulation are always a good choice for keeping the outside temperatures outside. Cellular shades, for example, are made with a pleated fabric, which forms honey comb shaped cellular compartments. These cells provide window insulation, which helps to keep your house cool in the summer and reduces your energy bill. What about your skylight windows? Skylight windows are a beautiful architectural detail to install to your home, however it is essential to find the right window treatments to maintain your skylight window. Finding the right treatment for your skylight helps to eliminate some of the heat that is naturally emitted through the window surface, ensuring that your energy bills won’t skyrocket as a result of this lovely feature.
