Many people here in the San Francisco are lucky enough to enjoy beautiful views out their windows. Trends toward larger windows and open spaces can create spectacular views throughout your home. There is a downside to big windows, though. Depending on their location, big windows can let in too much sun and heat, decreasing the energy efficiency of your home and damaging your interiors. With the right window coverings, you can enjoy your view, diffuse light, and improve the energy efficiency of your home. Visit one of our showrooms in San Francisco or Tiburon, or schedule your in-home appointment, to check out all your options for window coverings that maintain your views.
Diffuse Light with Sheers and Shades
When light is diffused, it’s not blocked entirely. Window coverings that diffuse light rather than block it allow you to have some view through your window while providing a barrier against UV rays. These window treatments filter out the brightness, glare and UV rays to protect your furniture and floors from fading while providing flexibility based on the amount of light and privacy you need throughout the day. Visually, light-diffusing window coverings add dramatic softness at the window. Shades and sheers are the most effective window coverings for diffusing light.
Sheer shades have adjustable vanes that float between two sheers. Popular styles include:
- Silhouette Window Shadings
- Silhouette® Window Shadings
- Pirouette® Shadings
- Luminette® Privacy Sheers
Shades can be raised or lowered to any desired height and provide protection and privacy, with some view-through, when closed. Popular styles include:
- Duette® Honeycomb Shades
- Designer Roller Shades
- Provenance® Woven Shades
- Duette® Architella Honeycomb Shades
Motorization for Added Convenience
Automating your window coverings allows you to program when they’re open and closed, further protecting your interiors when the sun is at its brightest and opening up your view when you’re home. Benefits of motorization include convenience, accessibility, appearance, and enhanced child and pet safety.
