Window Shades: Add UV Protection to Your Home

You’re probably mindful of the harsh UV rays when you go outside. But, did you know that the interior of your home can be at risk of damage from them, too? Do you notice any furniture that’s faded on one side? Your walls may be discolored, leaving you with dark spots where artwork has been hanging. Hardwood floors fade, leaving area rug marks. All of this is due to a lack of UV protection, but no worries, we’re here to help you preserve your home for years to come! 


Beautiful, But Uncomfortable

Along with the negatives that come with UV damage, if your space that doesn’t have window treatments, it will simply feel uncomfortable to be in. Is there a space in your home that you don’t utilize often because it always features harsh lighting, annoying glare, or the need for continual squinting? The right window treatments can be the perfect solution to all of those problems. And, even better, they won’t block your view!
