Best Blinds for Spring

Katie 2017 Remodeling Trends, Hunter Douglas Leave a comment  

Spring is finally here, which means so is warmer weather! Colorado Blinds and Design has great blind options to help keep your house cool and comfortable once things start to really heat up. Afterall, 50% of a home’s heating and cooling energy can be lost through its windows!

When it comes to keeping your house cool in the summer (and warm in the winter), we like to recommend cellular shades, like Hunter Douglas Architella blinds. That is because these high-quality cellular shades are made of pleated fabric that form honeycomb-shaped compartments. These compartments come in single, double, and triple layers that trap air and provide insulation. The more layers, the more insulation, which ultimately help save money on your energy bills!

In addition to the insulation our Hunter Douglas Architella blinds provide, they’re also aesthetically pleasing, reduce outside noise, provide sun protection for your furniture and flooring, and give you plenty of control for the perfect balance of privacy and light. Like all Hunter Douglas products, they are also covered by a lifetime limited guarantee!

If you’re interested in learning more about our Hunter Douglas Duette Architella honeycomb shades, visit us at our showroom and we will discuss everything from desired opacity, colors, and fabrics to lift system options!

Meet Mackenzie!

Window Treatment Color Trends 2017

Katie 2017 Remodeling Trends Leave a comment   ,

In case you missed it, Sherwin-Williams announced their Color of the Year – Poised Taupe (SW 6039), and here at Colorado Blinds and Design, we are all about it! That is because Poised Taupe is a cozy and stress-relieving hue that we feel is much needed in our current busy and frazzled world! What’s more, taupe is a warm blend of both brown and grey making it a great neutral that coordinates well with many different colors.

If you are interested in incorporating Poised Taupe in your home, Colorado Blinds and Design carries many different window treatments with colors that pair well with it.

Nantucket™ Shadings
These shades by Hunter Douglas offer beautiful colors in Front Street, Misty Harbor and Brant Point fabric lines. The soft fabric vanes provide an elegant and sophisticated option.

Privacy Sheers
Hunter Douglas Luminette Privacy Sheers are a graceful vertical option.

Honeycomb Shades
The Hunter Douglas Alustra Collection of Duette Architella honeycomb shades are constructed of rich, beautiful sheers and fabrics that are layered with unique waves, textures and patterns to create a sophisticated design. Many of the colors are neutral, but the Macon fabric family has colors that are a perfect partner for Poised Taupe.

Pleated Shades
Pleated shades offer a fun and whimsical family of colors and fabrics that use plenty of bold patterns for creative window coverings. There are several colors that pair perfectly with Poised Taupe.

For more window covering choices or color ideas to coordinate with Poised Taupe (or whatever color YOU have chosen for 2017), visit the experts at Colorado Blinds and Design!

Window Treatment Ideas for Your Bedroom

Katie 2017 Remodeling Trends, Home Staging Services Leave a comment   , , ,

The environment of our bedroom has a major impact on the quality and quantity of our sleep. Here at Colorado Blinds & Design, we know that your bedroom should be the most luxurious personal space in your home — soothing and conducive to relaxation and ultimately, sleep. If you haven’t put much thought into window treatments for your bedroom, now is the time consider updating for the sake of more (and better) Zzzzs!

The designers at Colorado Blinds & Design like to recommend blackout curtains and window treatments to block the sun and street lights to protect your sleep. Light exposure at the wrong times alters the body’s internal “sleep clock”, so as you can imagine, all the exposure we receive to artificial light (think your computer and smartphone screens), has damaging effects on our sleep. We want to make sure your window treatments lend themselves to creating a peaceful and DARK environment.

After a designer discusses with you your bedroom and sleep needs, she will then propose a variety of window treatment options, such as:

Roller Shades
Blackout roller shades are an economical way to help prevent the light from disrupting your sleep. They can be minimalistic by design, rolling neatly at the top of your window. These shades give you complete control over your window treatments to let the daylight in while you’re awake and block it out when you’re ready for sleep.

Roman Shades
Roman shades are a popular choice for bedrooms because they provide a soft, elegant look and are also available in blackout fabrics.

Cellular Shades
Cellular shades have great insulating properties. Not only can they block out the light, they can help keep your room cool as well. Cellular shades are available in many different colors and light-filtering options, making it easy to find the right fit for your room.

Combine curtains with shades or blinds
When you use drapery in conjunction with your blinds or shades, you add another layer of coverage, privacy, and light control. Drapery also helps add some dimension and style to ensure your bedroom feels like the comforting oasis you desire it to be.

If you’re ready to commit to a better night’s sleep and a more cozy bedroom, give us a call or stop by the Colorado Blinds & Design showroom today!
