For Awesome Views
Shades are the ‘always on’ window treatment. They can be closed and still provide privacy and see-through. Shades come in varieties of light filtration and transparency – from block-out to sheer. Most shades are designed for a ratio of transparency and privacy – usually around 4% transparency is the ‘sweet spot – keeping your view, shading your eyes and valuables from harsh glare and UV – and providing appropriate privacy. The insulation properties (Heat, Cold, UV, Sound and Glare) of shades, their reasonable price and elegant aesthetics make them the most popular of all window treatments.
