The Perks of Solera Soft Shades

As we leave January behind and step into the new month of February, you may be itching for a change in your home. After all, everyone is spending quite some time at home, so we might as well like what we see! One of the easiest ways to do this is by upgrading your home’s window treatments. For example, if you want a timeless window treatment that packs a modern twist and a cordless design, then you will love adding Solera® Soft Shades to your home. The unique nature of these shades is thanks to their combination of soft folds from a classic Roman shade and the construction of a modern cellular shade. This allows this shade to keep your home at the perfect temperature naturally while offering a stunning design. Plus, with zero cords, these shades are also perfect for homes that have small children. Read on to discover all the perks of Solera® Soft Shades for homes below.

The Perks of Solera Soft Shades near Mobile, Alabama (AL), for media rooms.

Perk 1: Reduced Energy Bills

The number of times we crank up the AC or ramp up the thermostat will ebb and flow as the seasons come and go. However, the one constant in this scenario is that you will face high electric bills at the end of each month. While nobody wants to reside in a home that is too hot in the summer and too cold in the winter, nobody exactly embraces high electric bills. Fortunately, this is another one of the perks of Solera® Soft Shades. Since a large majority of our homes heating and cooling is lost through our windows, finding a window treatment that offers insulation is an absolute must if you want to keep your home comfortable and those energy bills down. The cellular construction of these custom Hunter Douglas shades increases the insulating properties around your windows and helps lower your energy consumption and bills with time. Talk about a win-win scenario!

Perk 2: Custom Fabrics & Colors

In addition to working hard, Solera® Soft Shades also look great at each window in your home. In fact, you can explore a gorgeous collection of luxury woven and innovative non-woven fabrics, textures, patterns, and colors. Whether you select the gorgeous color of December or the calming Water hue, you will love how Solera® Soft Shades give each window in your home an upgrade. You can also select from light filtering room-darkening or light-filtering opacites to achieve your lighting and privacy goals with ease. For example, bedrooms and media rooms may need a little more privacy and shade than other rooms. For these spaces, a room with a dark opacity would be an excellent addition. However, for rooms that enjoy ample lighting, such as kitchens and living rooms, a shade with a lighter opacity will do just the trick for creating the perfect amount of light. These are just some of the perks of Solera® Soft Shades.

Perk 3: Sound Absorption

Not everyone lives in complete isolation, which means that chatting neighbors, cars rumbling by, and echo-inducing wooden floors can make your home feel like it absorbs all of the sounds in the world. Fortunately, one of the perks of Solera® Soft Shades is that the insulating cellular construction of this shade improves your home’s acoustics and reduces the intensity of outside noise.
