Graber Window Treatments – Energy Efficient And Beautiful
Anyone planning on hiring a designer to decorate your home should remember that window treatments can make or break a room. You also want energy efficiency from a window treatment. The choices that Graber window treatments offer in patterns, colors and styles of wood blinds, mini blinds and insulated window treatments like cellulars are virtually endless. They can provide you with the most control over exactly how much light and outside atmosphere enters your home through your windows.
Everybody’s got cellular phones, why not cellular shades?
Graber has that! Cellular or honeycomb shades are all the rage these days. They are incredibly versatile and thankfully energy efficient, more so in fact than any other blinds. There are double and single cell and even triple honeycomb designs that can pull off room darkening and light filtering, as you choose. If the old cordless design isn’t for you, they are even available with a mechanism that is motorized and operated by remote control. Now that’s what I call luxury. Graber window treatments offer several varieties including bottom up, continuous cord loop or top-down. Customers seem completely satisfied, not only with the insulation, but the affordability as well. The major consensus is that the larger the cell the more air that is trapped inside. The more air, the greater the insulation. This is why triple cell shades are the best insulators.
Surely there are other choices…
Yes! Since we’re going green here, let’s talk about the natural look. Natural window treatments made from bamboo, grass, jute and raffia are now being woven together as slatted window treatments, which are great for determining the level of light in a room and are amazingly very durable. They are available in styles like waterfall shades, hobble valance, flat fold shades, or roll up valance. There are also horizontal blinds and vertical blinds that come in all sorts of textures, colors, styles and materials. Take a look around your room at your furniture, your décor, and the way you’ve coordinated your colors. Should you choose vertical blinds? They come in vinyl, fabric or aluminum.
Should you decide on going with an aluminum vertical or horizontal blind, be sure to go on graberblinds.com to find a quality selection of either type. Their aluminum blinds are top rated, easy to clean and great for those high humidity locations. Many Graber blinds are not so much made for efficiency in terms of giving you privacy or light control, but these types of blinds aren’t. Aluminum blinds will never match up with the insulated blinds on energy efficiency, or even with the wood blinds, for that matter. Remember that manufacturers recommend that the best setting for horizontal (not vertical) blinds is a window that is taller than it is wide. There are also good ol’ shutters that not only come in natural wood but also in durable and easy to clean vinyl. Shutters are a nice look; they go with a number of room décors, and the vinyl is great for extreme climates since it won’t fade, warp, chip or peel. Whatever your window treatment needs, check with Graber window treatments before you check with anyone else!
