When it comes to choosing shades for the home, you have a few options. Of the most popular, and those that Reef Window Treatments offer in plenty of supply, are roller, solar, and cellular shades. Some are a bit better at performing certain functions than others. To find out which is best to be used for certain areas of the home, it’s important to understand the function of each kind of shade.
Roller shades, for starters, offer the convenience of use. Whether you want blackout roller shades or a light filtering roller shade, you can have them easily arranged on your windows with a mechanism that opens and closes them at the touch of a button. Whether you want to enclose your home in darkness or open it up to natural light, you can do so from the comfort of the couch or anywhere else.
Roller shades are an excellent choice for windows that see a lot of direct sunlight. They can stand up to the rays of the sun and are tough enough to filter or blackout the light at all depending on your personal preference. They’re able to be placed on larger or smaller windows.
A type of roller shade, the solar shade can also be mechanized for ease of use. Or you can simply close and open the shades by hand. Where the solar shade benefits the user is in its ability to block out the sun. This reduces glare and helps keep the home cool. For especially hot summer days, a home can benefit from having a few solar shades installed throughout the house to help the air conditioning keep the home comfortable.
Solar shades are also ideal for blocking out the light and so do well for windows that see a lot of sunlight. They’re specifically designed to deal with the sun’s powerful rays. They can be placed on windows and door windows.
One of the key benefits of cellular shades is their unique design. Often called a “honeycomb shade” the cellular shade uses its unique shape to keep air trapped between the window and the shade. All windows are prone to letting air in and out of the home. To keep the home insulated, the cellular shade is a key choice. You can often find these in various sizes and materials. They can even sometimes come in different colors. This allows homeowners to choose cells that enhance the aesthetic in their room already.
In addition, cellular shades are also better at reducing the sound that seeps through the window. This is due to the shade’s ability to insulate well.
