At Windows, Walls & More here in West Bloomfield, we know that many of our customers have invested a great deal to make their homes beautiful. And we’re sure they all want to keep them that way. One important aspect of protecting a home’s beauty is protecting it from damaging UV rays. That’s where some incredible Hunter Douglas products can come in. Read on to learn more!
What Are UV Rays?
UV (ultraviolet) rays are an invisible radiation that the sun emits. They do have some helpful properties (including giving healthful vitamin D for the skin); however, they can also do damage, especially after prolonged exposure—including to our skin, as well as to components of our homes, such as the artwork, furniture, and flooring. What happens is that, over time, UV rays can break down the chemical bonds of those elements, which results in a bleached or faded area.
Keep the Style With Your Protection
We’ve often noticed that people can incorrectly think that window fashions will detract from their room. But that’s just not the case. Views can be preserved, and style can still be a priority, even while getting the utmost in protection, because, with Hunter Douglas, window fashions you can choose from a wide variety of colors, styles, textures, and fabrics. Also, they’ll be custom-designed to fit your window exactly. Some great options to choose from include Pirouette® Window Shades, which can block up to 81% of harmful UV rays, while offering simple sophistication for your home; Silhouette® Window Shadings, which can block 95% to 99% of the sun’s rays and are available in 36 different material and color options; and Designer Screen Shades, which can block up to 99% of harmful UV rays, all while complementing your décor.
A Complete Look at the Window
To add even more emphasis to the beauty of your new window, you can layer these UV-protecting treatments with coordinating drapery or side panels to add drama, dimension, texture, and depth while framing the window in an elegant way. Check out the Design Studio™, where you’ll find many fabric options to coordinate with the style of your space. Many of the fabrics are available in Accents by the Yard, which lets you have extra fabric to create accent pieces such as throw pillows. And don’t forget the drapery hardware for the ultimate finishing touch.
