  • Draperies – Draperies are traditional and timeless. They come in a variety of shapes, fabrics, styles and colors, which makes it a breeze for you to get the exact look and function you want. Drapes always look stylish and can help your home with UV protection and insulation for better energy efficiency. Layer draperies with shutters or other blinds for additional insulation and privacy as needed. You can also make them even more unique by adding fun hardware or fashionable curtain rods.
  • Roller Shades – Roller shades are some of the most popular modern window treatments as they are functional, fashionable and energy efficient.

Roller shades are great for layering with other window treatments like draperies or other curtains, as they come in tons of colors and fabrics. You can also get rollers with light-filtering options for flexible light control that allow you to customize your privacy and light control. Check out rollers with openness’s from 1% to 25%.
