Safety is always the number one priority for your children. For starters, you don’t want cords on the shades inside of their room. This is why we recommend equipping their rooms with cordless shades. Depending on your child’s morning schedule, you may want to choose blackout shades to allow them to sleep adequately during the summer months.



There are a ton of options when it comes to choosing the right shades for your kitchen. Due to the energy efficiency associated with our cellular light filtering shades, we recommend them. Equipping you kitchen with these shades may reduce your utility bills during the winter and summer months. Another nice option is the Top Down / Bottom up option, which will allow you to lower or lift the shade from the bottom or top.
