There are two Roman Shades on the market today that offer energy savings and privacy. Essentially they are two shades in one, for the price of one. These shades offer an elegance that has kept them in the consumer eye when other shades have come and gone as a passing fad. However, today’s consumer is just as interested in the insulating powers of their window treatments as they are with style.
The Enviro-Fusion Textured Linen Roman Shades offer the same energy savings as a cellular shade, while the Valencia Day and Night Roman Shades include an extra layer of privacy and light filtering abilities.
EnviroFusion Textured Linen Roman Shades create a barrier against outside weather with their cellular shade liner. Cellular shades have a honeycomb style design that traps warm and cold air, preventing it from seeping into a room.
The design of these insulated blinds follows the flat panel design of traditional styles. The cellular shade tucks under the Roman Shade when the window blinds are pulled up, creating a clean line.
The cords are tucked under the liner so they don’t detract from the design.
The growing popularity of energy efficient blinds is due to the savings they bring the customer. Insulated blinds are as effective at blocking drafts as double-paned windows. Using less heat and air-conditioning translates into continued savings.
The more elegant the window treatments, the more your property values will increase. If you are thinking about updating the look of your house for personal reasons, there are a wide variety of colors and patterns to choose from. If however, you are getting ready to sell your home, then stick to neutral colors that won’t clash with a potential buyer’s taste.
Just as stylish, the Valencia Night & Day Discount roman shades offer additional privacy over traditional Roman Shades. There are two styles to choose from, depending on your needs. The Valencia Day and Night Roman Shades have a sheer inner liner that gives a soft glow to a room, while the Valencia Blackout version give complete privacy, making it feel like night.
The benefit of these shades is they allow light or privacy depending on your needs. The lift cords are designed so each portion of the shade opens separately and are color coordinated.
A slim head rail gives a simple finished look that doesn’t take away from the actual blind. The stitching at the edges and bottom is stylized to protect the sides of the blinds without being obtrusive. Putting the blinds up is easy and the insulated Roman Shades comes with instructions.
Roman Shades were so named because of the opulence of Rome. You belong alongside the emperors who decorated their dwellings with silk shades and fine embroidery. They suit all styles of rooms and furnishings. These are blinds that will last for years and never go out of date.
