Most of us dislike the idea of having to dust or wash our window treatments regularly, so changing them every season may seem like a big project. However, changing your window treatments every season is a good idea for several reasons. Changing them refreshes your home’s appearance, it creates a more energy-efficient space, and it reduces allergens.
Still not convinced that changing your window treatments every season is necessary? The following includes more details showing why it should be done:
Weatherization for the Winter
The most affordable solution to keep your home warm in the winter is by using thermal or insulating drapes. Doing so will help keep in the heat. From Designer Roller Shades to Woven Woods, Hunter Douglas has window treatments for any need.
Blooming Blinds That Let in Spring Light
As the seasons become warmer, brighter, and longer for spring, you can swap window treatments from the insulating or thermal drapes to lighter, sheerer shades from Hunter Douglas. These shades transform light to give UV protection for your artwork and furniture. Besides, taking down dusty, musty winter curtains for washing will get rid of the seasonal dust layer.
Shutting out the Summer Sun
For the summer, you can block out the heat and keep cool air in by using the same drapes you used for the winter months. Doing this will maximize energy efficiency. It is recommended by the department of energy to use white plastic for the backing area along with using medium-colored curtains to minimize heat. Doing so will reduce the gaining of heat by 33%. Ask Hunter Douglass for more detail.
Fading into Fall
For fall, hanging voile curtains of midweight will allow the light in, filters the light for a little glare, and keep the home at comfortable temperatures during this season.
Ultimately, changing window treatments each season is important to not only the decor of your home but the amount of light being let into your home as well. Changing your drapes or blinds with the seasons allows your family to stay comfortable all year long.
