Insulating Cellular Blinds

Cellular Blinds Open

Cellular Blinds Closed

Cellular Blinds Closed

Blindsmax carries an exclusive two-in-one blind that looks like your typical blind when open, but when closed functions like a cellular shade to insulate your window. This is the world’s only insulating blind, made with the soft fabric look of a shade. The vanes in the blind expand into 1″ cells that block drafts for better energy efficiency.

The cells compress flat when the insulating cellular blind is open to offer a mostly unobstructed view. Plus while you can choose many colors to match your decor, the outside of the blind is white for a uniform exterior appearance. The insulating blind is available with either light filtering or room darkening fabric choices in a great variety of over a dozen colors, so you are sure to find the perfect match for your space.

The cellular blind is easy to operate and works a lot like your typical blind would. Blindsmax offers these blinds with a max dimension of up to 108″ in width and a height of up to 120″ total. Like cellular shades, they are designed to trap air in their honeycomb shaped cells to provide insulation when the vane is fully expanded.

Over 40% of a home’s heating and cooling energy can be lost through windows if suitable insulating window treatments are not used. Our insulating blinds work efficiently, blocking the heat as well as the damaging UV rays in the summer, and they keep  the chilly drafts out and the warm air in through the colder winter days. Unlike cellular shades, with insulating blinds you can allow more natural light in during daylight hours and ALSO enjoy the view while still filtering the light like you can with a typical blind.

Choosing Window Treatments for Sliding Glass Doors and for Patio Doors

Vertical Cellular Shades

When it comes to picking out window treatments for sliding glass doors, patio doors, or French doors, it can be a real challenge. You need function, you want style, and you definitely do not want to have to deal with replacing your window treatments often due to too much wear and tear from a high traffic location.

Fear not, we have some useful expert advice for you from the brilliant minds of the Blindsmax team! There are actually many excellent options for covering these rather large and difficult doors, the perfect one is really going to depend on your taste, the type of door, and your budget. We will outline what we feel are your best options to evaluate.

Roman Shades
Roman shades are excellent for French and patio doors since the fabric tends to hold up very well over time. There are also plenty of styles to choose from to match existing decor. Remember to measure carefully so that you allow for the fabric to cover the entire window, but not so wide that the fabric will get in the way of the knob on the door. Roman shades are not ideal for sliding glass doors.

Vertical Blinds and Shades
Vertical blinds and shades are some of the best options for sliding glass doors, and there are a multitude of fabrics and other materials to choose from. A popular new trend is to use vertical cellular shades to give a room unique softness and light control while also creating a superior barrier against the extreme heat and cold fluxuations common around large sliding glass doors. Vertical blinds can be used for patio and French doors but may not be the best choice since they hide the doors themselves when closed.

Horizontal Blinds
Horizontal blinds are a good choice for patio and French doors but there are a few considerations to observe. There are many types of blinds to choose from that could work including, aluminum mini blinds, faux wood blinds, hardwood blinds, and composite blinds. Blinds have a tendency to “slap” or bump the door with general use which can be damaging and anoying, so you will need a hold down bracket installed to avoid this. Blinds are not ideal for sliding glass doors.

Levolor Aluminum Mini Blinds

Levolor Aluminum Mini Blinds

Drapes and Curtains
Curtains and drapes are also a good choice for sliding glass doors, patio doors, and French Doors because they can be used and maneuvered in various ways. Avoid purchasing pre-measured curtains since they rarely are a “perfect” fit for your specific door. When you use curtains over any door it is important that they come with a quality liner to function well and to protect the color and crispness of the fabric for years to come.

What Are Solar Shades?

Solar shades are perfect for rooms with a view.
A benefit of solar shades is that they block glare.

A benefit of solar shades is that they block glare.

Solar shades, sometimes referred to as sunscreens, are a beautiful and functional alternative to standard window coverings. They offer added benefits that make them the perfect choice for homes with a view or windows located where sunlight shines directly in.

Solar shades are made of fabric woven tight enough to block out some sunlight but are open enough to see through. They come in a range of openness from 0-25%. The smaller the number the less open and the less you will be able to see through the shade. The higher the number the more open so the better the view and more light will pass through.

Standard window treatments completely block your view when they are closed. Solar shades allow you to take advantage of the view outside your window even when they are fully extended. You determine light control by the percentage of openness you choose.

Solar shades are perfect for rooms with a view.

Solar shades are a type of roller shade with a fabric panel that wraps around a roller at the top when open. There are three standard valance options available for solar shades, as well as various styles of wooden cornices. For a clean look, a square aluminum fascia can be added to cover the roller and brackets. For a coordinating look, the fascia can be wrapped with a matching fabric. A third valance option for solar shades is the cassette.  The cassette is rounded and also covers the roller and brackets. It has a coordinating fabric insert. The fascia and cassette are available in different colors such as bronze, brushed aluminum, black and vanilla. Of course there is always the no valance option if you prefer.

There are many types of valances available for solar shades.

There are different types of lift systems to choose from, depending on your needs. The child-safe cordless lift system and motorized system are best for eliminating the strangulation hazard that cords and chains create. They also provide a clean, uncluttered appearance.

Not only do solar shades offer a streamlined, sophisticated look, they are also eco-friendly. They significantly reduce harmful UV rays that can damage your home and furniture. They decrease temperature transference, keeping it cooler inside during the summer and warmer during the winter. This saves you money!

Another benefit of solar shades is that they block glare, making them perfect for rooms with televisions or computers.

Not only do solar shades offer a clean sophisticated look, they are also eco-friendly.

Not only do solar shades offer a clean sophisticated look, they are also eco-friendly.

Keep in mind that because of the openness factor, visibility from outside of the home is as clear as it is from the inside, especially at night with inside lighting. If privacy is a concern, choose the lowest openness percentage. Pair solar shades with drapery or curtains to maximize privacy.

Solar shades are versatile, functional and they look great! These energy-efficient shades look beautiful in any room, while simultaneously saving money on your electric bill and making a more comfortable environment in those spaces that receive direct sunlight.

Types of Roman Shades

Roman Shades Have a More Decorative Appearance Than Other Shades.

Roman Shades have a more decorative, elegant appearance than other shades. There are essentially two types of roman shades; flat, also called classic, and hobbled, sometimes referred to as looped.

Flat Roman Shades

A flat roman shade is a fabric panel that lies flat against the window when fully extended and forms neat stacked folds, like an accordion, when raised. They offer a clean, uncluttered look. There are many varieties of both flat and hobbled roman shades. Flat roman shades can appear as a smooth solid piece or with visible pleats that can be seen even when the shade is fully extended.

Roman Shades Can Have Visible Pleats.

Hobbled Roman Shades

The hobbled roman shade retains its soft, overlapping folds, or loops, when fully extended. This creates a flowing, cascade look, closer to the look of drapery.

Hobbled Roman Shades Have Soft Overlapping Folds.

Hobbled Roman Shades Have Soft Overlapping Folds.

Embellished

Another choice for customizing your look is to have the bottoms embellished. They can feature a curved bottom, referred to as European style, a vertical gathering in the middle, a bottom that spreads out like a fan, as well as other varieties.  Tassels, fringe, or beads can also be added as bottom trim.

Colors and Designs

Roman shades are available in an array of colors, textures, and designs, from classic weaves to bold color prints. They usually have a neutral color backing so that the outside view of the home is consistent. Flat roman shades can accommodate large windows with no light gap and are great for dramatic patterns.

Light Filtering, Room Darkening, and Privacy

There are many options for fabric depending on the amount of light filtering you prefer. Choose a thermal or blackout liner for more energy efficiency, light blockage, and privacy. Due to the additional fabric for the folds, you tend to lose a bit of privacy with hobbled. That may not be a concern depending on which room they will be in. Choosing an outside mount will provide the most light blockage and privacy, as the shade will be slightly wider than the window and attached to the wall on the outside. This will prevent any gaps that may allow in light.

Cordless Option for Safety

A continuous cord loop is an option that is especially useful for wider shades. It makes them easier to lift regardless of weight. This replaces the traditional dangling cord that is a safety hazard. They can also be equipped with no hassle cordless operation for convenience and safety. Eliminating cords and chains altogether, gives a clean and uncluttered look and keeps your small children and pets safe. You do not have to sacrifice style in the name of safety. In fact, the clean, slick look of cordless is gaining popularity because of its streamlined appearance. These typically operate by gently pushing up or pulling down on the bottom pull or rail to position at desired height. The top down bottom up variety allows you to lower the top or lift the bottom so that you can let in light and still keep visibility from outside down to a minimum.

Versatility

Roman shades are very versatile window treatment. They look great with or without a fabric valance. Valances come in many styles and sizes to suit your needs. Wooden cornices are also available as a decorative top treatment. Flat roman shades also pair elegantly with drapery. Double roman shades are made with two layers. There is usually a sheer layer in front of a heavier fabric and the two layers function independently.

With so many ways to customize, roman shades are a beautiful choice whether you want a simple or sophisticated look.

What Are Cellular Shades?

Energy-Efficient Cellular Shades Are Great for Almost Any Living Space in the Home.

Energy-Efficient Cellular Shades Are Great for Almost Any Living Space in the Home.

Cellular shades are a popular type of window covering also called honeycomb shades. Fabric is bonded together to form honeycomb shaped cells. They have a single, double or triple layered design that traps the air between the layers of the shade in individual cells to provide insulation. This creates an effective barrier between the window and the room and helps to prevent temperature transference. These are available in an array of fabrics and colors allowing you to customize your window treatments. Determine your needs based on color, opacity level, energy efficiency level and size.

Energy Efficient

Double Cell Cellular Shades Have Two Layers of Cells for Better Insulation.

Double Cell Cellular Shades Have Two Layers of Cells for Better Insulation.

The honeycomb design provides a high level of energy efficiency and sound absorption. Cellular shades keep you warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer and save money on your electric bill.

Single cell cellular shades have one row/layer of cells. They provide some amount of insulation but not as much as double or triple layered shades. They are better suited for spaces where resistance to heat and cold is not a priority. Because they have only one layer, they have a smaller profile and work nicely for doors.

Double cell cellular shades have two layers of cells. They provide more insulation and therefore better resistance to sounds and temperature transference.

Triple cell cellular shades have three layers of cells. They are the best option for locations in extreme conditions with freezing or scorching temperatures. They offer maximum insulation for temperature control and noise reduction. They are thicker and heavier than single or double layered so the size and lift options may be limited.

Variety Available to Meet Your Needs

Cellular shades are available in a variety of opacity levels, including sheer, light filtering, room darkening and blackout. They allow in the amount of light you prefer while maintaining your privacy. Light filtering cellular shades are great for almost any living space in the home.

Available in Many Colors and Designs to Suit any Decor.

Home Décor Resolutions for the New Year

Stay Organized and Clutter Free for the New Year
Stay Organized and Clutter Free for the New Year

Stay Organized and Clutter Free for the New Year

It’s that time again. The holidays are almost over, the new year approaches, and we commit to make some life changes so that the next one will be better than the last. The problem with resolutions is that though we have every intention of tackling them, we tend to let them quietly fade away. That could be because we often make resolutions that are unrealistic. We defeat ourselves before we even begin. Make this year’s resolution to make attainable resolutions!

Here are four doable home décor resolutions to get you started.

1. Stay Organized and Clutter Free. Keeping your home organized and clutter free will not only make it more inviting, it will reduce stress and anxiety. In order to take on the initial clean-up, break it into small tasks that you can do over a period of time so that it doesn’t become overwhelming. If it seems to be a daunting chore then you are more likely to avoid it altogether. Don’t expect to do it all at once. Do one room at a time and divide it up into projects. Determine what items you need to keep and what you don’t. If you haven’t used something in a while you probably won’t, so get rid of it. Don’t bring more things home. Once you have your home clean and organized, commit to doing a little tidying up every day so that it doesn’t get out of control.

2. Go “Green” at Home. Reducing your impact on the environment by using eco-friendly home décor options is a great way to accomplish two things at once. You can do that room makeover you have been putting off and do your part for the planet. Grasscloth wallcoverings are made from natural, sustainable materials and are considered an eco-friendly choice. They are beautifully textured papers with many unique designs. Another alternative is bamboo window coverings, called woven woods by window blind retailers. Bamboo is very popular for its versatility in appearance and application. A variety of attractive, natural blinds and shades are available. Bamboo options will elegantly accent any room.

Eco-friendly Blinds and Shades Make Great Window Treatments

3. Update an Outdated Room. A couple of quick ways to update a room are by adding an accent wall and swapping out old drapery for more modern blinds or shades. Choose a sophisticated wallpaper pattern and create a focal point accent wall. Then spread the color around the room with matching accessories. Take down the old, dusty drapes and replace them with some energy-efficient, streamlined blinds or shades for a stylish and eco-friendly upgrade.

4. Start the Kids’ New Year Off Right. Whether you are preparing for the arrival of a new little one or redecorating your child’s room as a birthday gift, designing their space should be fun for you and expressive and stimulating for them. An easy way to create an environment they will love is with wall décor. From wallpaper to murals and decals, the options are virtually endless and you are sure to find something appealing to both you and your child. Once you decide on a theme to work around, consider strippable wallpaper or peel & stick wall decals, so that it will be easy to remove when their interests change and they want to replace it with a new favorite hobby or color. Children grow quickly as do their personalities, so allow them to express themselves and demonstrate their independence all year long with wall décor.

Your home is your haven so love it or change it! A comfortable home is good for your health. If there is something you don’t love about it, now is the time to make it better. Take an inventory of your home and make a plan. Start small; give yourself reasonable time frames and attainable goals. Home décor resolutions for the new year are a great way to make your house a home. Whether it be rearranging some furniture or adding an accent wall, your home should be a relaxing place and an extension of yours or your family’s personalities. Enjoy the new year and enjoy your house!

Bamboo Shades and Curtains: Eco Chic Window Fashions

Eco Chic Bamboo

As consumers, we are becoming increasingly more aware of how our choices affect the world around us. Many are making daily efforts to lessen the negative impact on our planet. In addition to recycling, using mass transit, and conserving energy usage, another way we can work toward preserving the environment is by choosing Eco-friendly home décor products.

The term Eco Chic refers to products made with Eco-friendly materials, which are better for the environment, yet stylish and trendy. In effort to “go green,” interior designers encourage and implement the use of recycled, renewable and natural materials. Being environmentally conscious does not mean one has to forgo their sense of style and personality. It doesn’t have to be a sacrifice to do your part. You can live in a more Eco-friendly home while maintaining your creativity.

Bamboo Shades

There has been an increase in the variety and availability of environmentally friendly textiles. The options are vast. The organic production of natural fibers for use as building materials and home décor items is growing as the desire for these types of products rises. “There are varying degrees of ‘green,’ but in general a product must be made from renewable natural material grown organically or harvested with minimal impact to its environment, or a material recycled in an environmentally responsible way.” (Talsma, 2012)

One such material that has become very popular for its versatility in appearance and application, is bamboo. Bamboo grows in most continents except for Antarctica and Europe. Due to its Eco-friendly appeal, quick growth rate, and durability, bamboo is a preferred building material. It is “more lightweight than steel and five times stronger than concrete.” (Green Diary, 2012) It not only lasts a long time, it is completely biodegradable when disposed of.

Bamboo Shades in a Sun Room

Bamboo Shades in a Sun Room

Window furnishings are a great place to start your home transformation. Choosing the right window covering will not only benefit the environment but it can save you money! There are varieties currently on the market that are not only beautiful but serve to allow you to block completely or let in just the right amount of sunlight. Having natural sunlight permeate a room can help reduce costs related to lighting as well as heating in the winter. Having the ability to block the sunlight effectively can reduce the cost of cooling in the summer.

There are several types of bamboo window coverings available. Woven roman shades, roller shades, grommet panels, and drapes are crafted from reeds, grasses, and natural woods, including bamboo. The shades provide a combination of natural beauty, durability, and function. Shades can be flat, hobbled style or accordion, with the same options as other shades or blinds, such as traditional wood valances, continuous cord loop or top-down/bottom-up style for custom design. The panels and drapes can be easily hung with a rod. Because they come in a variety of colors, textures and weaves, with a number of customizable attributes, the selection is extensive. They naturally filter light but a liner can be added to block light and increase privacy. They also pair well with fabric drapery panels.

Bamboo shades, drapes and panels are multifunctional and can be used to accent the home in other ways besides covering windows.

  • Bamboo beaded curtains are great for separating spaces within a room, such as a room divider in a shared kids’ room, creating a private sleeping space in a small studio or setting up a small closet.
  • A woven bamboo panel makes a nice shower curtain that can be easily hooked to the shower rod.
  • Bamboo curtains and shades work well for blocking sunlight when hung over a sliding glass door.
  • Colorful, decorative bamboo shades or beaded curtains make fun wall hangings that are easy to change out for seasonal themes or motifs.
Bamboo Shades with Fabric Drapery

An Eco-friendly home can also be stylish and trendy. Bamboo options will elegantly accent any room by adding a natural touch to your modern décor. Sustainable natural materials are being used to create beautiful and interesting home décor options that will decrease the negative impact on the environment, so you don’t have to sacrifice style to be a green homeowner.
