How Window Treatments Can Protect Your Family and Your Home
The safety and well-being of your family is a top priority. You go to great lengths to protect everyone. Whether you invest in a home security system, install strong locks on your doors or keep your outdoor areas lit at night, spending money on protecting your home and your family is a worthwhile investment.
Window treatments can also play a major role in protecting you, your family, and your home. Here are the top ways that our blinds and shades can give you peace of mind:
Window treatments protect your skin
Although it’s not as dangerous as direct exposure, sunlight can still penetrate through glass windows and damage your skin. Over time, that damage can result in premature aging and even skin cancer. Closing your blinds and shades or using window treatments that filter and absorb the sun’s UV rays can protect your family.
Blinds and shades protect your privacy and your home
Our window coverings are effective at protecting indoor privacy, but we also offer many varieties of blinds and shades that can be ordered with optional blackout liners. This further enhances your family’s privacy and can make you feel more at ease.
Installing window coverings and keeping them closed at night or all day can keep your home safer and less likely to be the target of burglars when you’re at work or on vacation.
The right window treatments can protect small children and pets
Blinds and shades can be dangerous to small children and pets. Window treatments that utilize cloth, nylon, or chain lift cords present a choking and strangulation hazard, especially when the cords are within easy reach or can be accessed by climbing on nearby furniture.
Most of our products are available with cordless operation, many of which eliminate visible cords. Motorization is also available on most of your favorite blind, shade, and drapery collections. Since there are no dangling cords, motorized shades are the ideal choice for child and pet safety.
Blinds and shades enhance your sleep and overall well-being
There’s nothing better for your overall health and vitality than a good night’s sleep. But everyone knows that it can be difficult to get much-needed rest when outside lights and noises cause frequent wake-ups, sleep interruptions, and tossing and turning at night.
Installing light-blocking, noise-reducing, and temperature-insulating window treatments is a great way to turn your bedroom into a sleep sanctuary, enhancing your health and giving you more energy during the day. It’s also vital for the well-being of babies, small children, and even teenagers, all of whom need quality, uninterrupted sleep.
Window treatments can protect your furniture and wood floors
The sun’s UV rays can also damage natural materials like wood and fabrics. Dyes can fade and change color, while wood stains can lose their luster. All of our products will protect your wood floors when lowered. Solar Shades, Window Shadings/Sheer Shades and Draperies offer UV protection while maintaining your outside view.
