Applause Specialty Shapes

Check out this specialty shaped Hunter Douglas® Applause shade that we just did for one of our favorite clients! They had a bare east facing window in their bathroom, and the intense sun made it feel like a greenhouse! We installed this operable specialty shape for them and instantly cut out 99% of UV rays and 40% of the heat. They couldn’t be more thrilled with the result.

If you are in need of a specialty shade, give us a call to come take a look at it and discuss options with you. As always, it is FREE for us to come out, so give us a call and schedule your appointment today!

Great Tips on “Winterizing” Your Home: How to Save on Energy Costs this Winter

Our newest Interior Designer and Window Covering Specialist, Karla Allingham, has shared some great tips on ways to reduce heating costs due to energy loss this winter. Her quick and easy tips are small, easy and inexpensive methods that make a HUGE difference! Take a look at her post below or come see her in our showroom.

It definitely feels like winter has arrived! With that in mind, consider the following home improvements to prepare for the cold winter months.

  •   Clean or replace your furnace filters to increase energy efficiency. A good rule of thumb is to do this every heating and cooling season.
  •   Insulate electrical outlets and switch plate covers with foam inserts and apply weather stripping around doors and windows to reduce drafts.
  •   Reverse the direction of your ceiling fan to counter-clockwise so that the warm air circulates around the room.
  • Make sure floor registers, baseboard heaters, and radiators are not blocked by furniture or drapes to provide more efficient heat flow.
  •  Add area rugs to cold bare floors and consider hanging thermal drapes to increase comfort and reduce heating costs.
  • Install energy efficient window coverings to reduce heat loss through windows. Duette Architella shades from Hunter Douglas can save up to 20% on energy bills and typically pay for themselves in just 2 years.

By implementing the above mentioned tips, you will save energy and money.
