Windows are a key feature in any home, as they provide access to natural light and fresh air, both of which are essential to physical and mental health. However, you probably don’t want your space to be flooded with natural light all the time, so we at Discover Interiors recommend investing in window treatments such as curtains or shades to control the light. In this article, we will focus on shades, providing a few tips on how to choose the ideal shades for your home.

How to Choose the Right Shades for Your Home

  • Light – One key thing to consider when choosing shades is how much light you want to block or let in. For example, if you work the night shift, then you will likely want completely opaque shades to keep your room dark for sleeping during the day. Alternatively, if you work a daytime shift, then you may only want a sheer shade to cut the sun’s glare without blocking the light completely.
  • Privacy – Another factor to think about when choosing shades for your windows is privacy. Our team can help you choose the ideal shades to prevent people from seeing into your space.
  • Safety – If you have children, then we recommend choosing cordless shade options, as dangling cords are a safety risk for young kids. We can provide plenty of suggestions for cordless shades that suit your unique tastes.
  • Style – Of course, you should also consider your personal style when choosing shades or any window treatments. Our team offers a wide selection of shades in different materials and colors, and we are confident we can find the perfect choice for your space.
