Our 4 Best Insulating Window Treatments

You deserve a comfortable home. With the chilly winter we’ve had this year, have you felt the need to bundle up–even when sitting on the inside of your home? Well, it won’t be long until spring enters our lives, but a short while later, the scorching sunshine of summer will be here. Now’s the perfect time to upgrade the comfort of your home with insulating window treatments. It’s a win-win, since they’ll keep your home warm during the drafty times of year, and they will keep you cool in the summer.

Duettes certainly have a reputation for increasing the comfort of your home. They have been one of the best insulating window treatments in the industry for years! Now, they are available with amazing features, like top down bottom up, dual shades and PowerView automation. The uniform pleats create organized style at the window, while today’s fabrics offer beautiful textures and colors.

Sonnette Shades

This was an incredible invention on the part of Hunter Douglas. They combined the operation and sleek profile of roller shades, with the energy efficiency of honeycombs. The Sonnette shades collection is a whole new category of insulating window treatments. Moves like a roller, saves energy like a cellular shade–sign us up!

Custom Roman Shades

The tradition of custom roman shades is full of charm and style. You can add insulating window treatments to the list of benefits, as well! Layers of fabrics at the window keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Adding to their energy efficiency, you can let natural light in across your ceiling so you don’t have to turn on the lights with top down bottom up. The dual shade system, recently added to our Vignette Modern Roman shades, allows you the full range of control, from light filtering to room darkening.

Plantation Shutters

Framed at the window, plantation shutters are energy efficient! The adjustable louvers allow you to have increased control, while enjoying a host of benefits. More daylighting, but more privacy at the same time? Adjust the louvers to direct the light across the ceiling. Feeling a draft? Close them off for improved energy savings and room darkening.
