Maintain the View – Minimize Glare With Energy- efficient Shades

Think Blinds and Designs

For Solar Shades

Throughout the Bay area, people enjoy amazing views of the city, the Bay, and the intriguing landscapes. Use solar screens to maintain your view while minimizing the glare and damage from the sun. At Blinds & Designs, we offer a variety of solar screens in a range of weaves, colors and styles.

With issues such as heat gain and/or loss, fading caused by harmful UV rays and/or glare, solar shading systems may be a recommended option. Proper shading solution can greatly enhance media reception and/ or presentation and energy costs can often be dramatically reduced with proper solar shading.

Designer Solar Shades with Motorization


MechoShades are a popular choice for energy-efficient solar shades. They combine optimum solar protection, glare and brightness control with lower energy consumption and greater use of natural light. Motorized shades by MechoSystems are considered the “Architect’s Choice” for solar shading and room darkening solutions.
