These window treatments, also known as honeycomb shades, offer the most energy efficiency of any window covering. Their pocketed design traps hot and cold air, creating a barrier between the temperatures outside and your home’s interior. You can further boost the energy efficiency of these window coverings by adding a lining of solar material, room darkening material or blackout material to the back.
Add panache to your home with other types of custom shades that you can get with blackout lining on the back. Blackout lining completely blocks the sun’s rays, keeping your home cooler during the summer. The lining can also serve as an extra layer of protection from winter chill. From roller shades to roman shades, you can choose from a variety of textures, fabrics and colors to match your personal decor style.
Room Darkening Shades
If you want to allow some light filtering and not completely block the sun’s rays, room darkening shades can still block much of the heat from the sun’s rays. Just like blackout shades, the lining on the back serves as an extra barrier between your home and the outdoor temperatures and they also come in a variety of styles, fabrics, textures and colors!
Outdoor Roller Shades
Pairing up your indoor window treatments with an outdoor roller shade can really boost your energy savings. These specially designed outdoor shades are made of material that is designed to block UV rays, keeping your outdoor spaces and indoor temperatures cooler. They also help to protect your furniture, rugs and artwork from fading due to the sun’s harmful UV rays. You can choose from a variety of materials, colors and weave tightness to get the right amount of light filtering and style for your needs.
