A smart move for Spring and Summer
Adding Drapery into your home is a great addition to help block sunlight from heating up the house on hot days and keep cool air from escaping through leaky windows. In addition to the design and softness of a room, window treatments help minimize heat transfer from windows during the Spring and Summer months.
There are so many options to choose from when it comes to choosing drapes. A layered look delivers the most options for light control and energy efficiency. Another option to consider is using sheer for daytime filtered light with a light weight drape to use at night for privacy or during very hot days to assist with heat transfer.
Cornices add architectural interest, like valances where they can be used alone or paired with other window treatments. When covered in fabric, cornices soften the overall look of the window and absorb extra heat and nighttime chill. Wood cornices mimic the look of deep crown molding and should coordinate with the other woodwork and trim in the room.
Adding drapery or any kind of window treatment is a smart move to make right before Spring and Summer to help your home more energy efficient. Let us help you make your windows not only beautiful, but energy efficient as well.
