Transform Your Space with Shades

Window shades are a great way to subtly re-energize your home or office. Not only are they a beautiful way to complement the rest of your decor, but they also offer simple functionality that makes day-to-day life just that much easier. Some benefits of window shades include:

  • Low maintenance: Proper care can keep your window coverings in great shape for years, and fortunately shades are very easy to take care of! Most types just need a quick dusting or gentle vacuuming, so you don’t have to worry about time-consuming maintenance.

  • Affordable options: There are thousands of window shades on the market at a wide variety of price points. The window treatment experts at Blinds by Design NW can help you find a beautiful option that doesn’t break your budget.

  • Energy-efficient: Shades can fit snugly inside your windows, which both blocks out harsh UV rays and helps to insulate your home. Most houses lose around 10% of their heat through windows, so this extra insulation can save you a lot in the long run.

  • Simple light control: Shades are fast and easy to operate, which allows you to quickly control the light levels in your home. Additionally, you can choose between sheer and opaque options for varying levels of light control.

  • Complete privacy: Though some shades are sheer and designed to merely filter out light, others are opaque and designed for total privacy. With these shades, you can enjoy complete privacy within seconds.

  • Lots of design choices: Shades are available in hundreds of different styles. With the designers at Blinds By Design NW, you can choose from many unique colors, patterns, textures, and materials to fit your distinctive style.
