It’s probably better sleep that homeowners are looking for. Room darkening is a great way to enjoy an uninterrupted night of sleep, a weekend sleep-in, or a quiet nap on a Saturday afternoon. Being able to close out the sunshine and glare is also ideal for creating a darkened media space. Our offerings include many ways to block the sunshine, gain light control, protect furnishings and keep those energy bills at bay.

#3 Top Down Bottom Up

Next up is a fan favorite, the top down treatment. Clients who are looking for light control and privacy find it with Top Down Bottom Up shades. These treatments are a popular window covering solution due to their versatility.
