Energy Saving Roman Shades

With the winters getting colder and the summers getting hotter, now more than ever, we need to keep our castles comfortable.
Comfortable doesn’t mean sitting in the center of the room away from the cold window in the winter nor does it mean being next to the fireplace. Comfortable means using that favorite chair your so found of sitting right next to that big window any time of year.To get your rooms this comfortable, one of the best ways is to use insulated roman shades in your windows. Insulated roman shades are made for three distinct purposes.

1. To look Awesome.

With their clean, sophisticated lines, Roman Blinds or Roman shades as they are sometimes known, are one of the most stylish ways to dress up a window.”

Every window treatment is meant to look awesome but some do it with extraordinary style while others just hang around and look blah. Roman shades have great style especially when they are lined and interlined which is how insulated roman blinds are made.

They take the face fabric, line it with a regular drapery lining and then they sandwich a layer of cotton felt lining, called an interlining. This creates a shade that is heavy but a shade that looks like a million dollars.

That extra weight and the soft interlining cause the shade to take on a new form. It’s graceful, looks terrific and cascades down your window in style and grandeur.

2. To keep You Comfortable.

This is where insulated roman blinds pull out of the window treatment crowd and becomes part of the highly purposed elite. Most window treatments other than looking good don’t do much in the realm of comfort control other than light control.

Insulated Roman shades when made to the right size in width and length keep you down right cozy. They repel the heat and the cold that is trying to come on into you house through your windows. Almost all other window treatments just let the heat and cold come on into the room through the openings in the slats whether horizontal or vertical.

To accomplish this insulating, they need to be mounted inside the window frame where they look their best anyway. Outside mounted romans let heat and cold escape into the room from the sides, especially the hobbled type that leave big open spaces for the heat and cold to come through.

3. To save you a bundle of money.

With the cost of fuel and energy rising with no ceiling in sight, coupled with the record setting cold weather in winter and heat in summer insulated roman shades should be awarded a best buy award.

By having that third layer, a cotton felt lining in the middle, you create two dead air spaces that are renown for their insulating quality. This is what saves you big bucks. It gives you an r-factor of over 5. That’s a huge r-factor and the reason they insulate so well.

If you are interested in going green, saving some green, then insulated roman shades should be at the forefront of your decorating possibilities.
