As each season changes, bits and pieces of our homes change too. Summer brings bright, sunny days, winter inspires cozy holiday décor, fall boasts autumnal colors, and spring allows us to have a fresh start. One of the best and easiest ways to transform your home this spring season is by giving your windows a fresh upgrade from Hunter Douglas. Featuring UV protection, multiple fabric color options, and energy efficiency, there are many reasons why roller and solar shades are great spring shades for homes.

UV-Blocking Fabrics

As spring rolls along, the sun tends to get hangs higher in the sky for a longer amount of time. Before we know it, we will be bringing out the sunhats and sunscreens. While many shades offer some sort of shade, not all offer the benefit of UV-blocking fabrics that will keep your interior furnishings safe from sun damage. That is why Designer Screen Shades are great spring shades for homes. Whether you choose a neutral fabric color or something bold, Designer Screen Shades help protect your home’s furnishings from fading by blocking 80% to 99% of the sun’s damaging UV rays. This makes these shades especially great for rooms that see a lot of sun throughout the day.

Custom Fabric Options

Another reason why roller and solar shades are great spring shades for homes is their endless customization options. For example, in addition to offering a wide range of colors, Designer Screen Shades are organized by their openness factor. This means that the weave density of the fabric and the degree of visibility, glare, privacy, and UV blockage vary to fit your specific needs. Sonnette™ Cellular Roller Shades also offer a range of customization options, including neutral hues and bright colors, as well as semi-opaque and room-darkening options. This allows you to achieve your desired levels of sun, shade, and style in each room.

Energy Efficiency

While we love warm weather and bright, sunny spring days, there is no doubt that warmer days bring higher energy bills. Fortunately, Hunter Douglas offers another collection of great spring shades for homes that offer energy efficiency. Sonnette™ Cellular Roller Shades feature a cellular construction that keeps your home warm in the winter and cools in the summer. This will keep your home comfortable naturally, which will translate to lower energy bills with time. Since spring offers mild weather, now is a great time to add these energy-efficient shades to your windows.
