With summer on our heels, now is the perfect time to explore UV-blocking shades for homes. While normal shades provide adequate amounts of shade and privacy, UV-blocking shades are specifically designed to curb harsh sun rays from entering your home without taking away your home’s natural light. This will not only fill your home with a gorgeous, soft glow, but it will also protect your flooring, furniture, artwork, and other interior items from sun damage. Read on to learn more about our top UV-blocking shades for homes, including Silhouette® Window Shadings and Designer Screen Shades from Hunter Douglas.
Known as the leader in light transformation, Hunter Douglas Silhouette® Window Shadings are one of our favorite UV-blocking shades for homes. Featuring easily adjustable S-shaped vanes, the sheer fabrics of these window shadings gently filter out harsh light to transform it into a beautiful glow around your window. Additionally, these sheers work to obscure the outside world’s view into your home for unparalleled privacy.
Of course, the benefits of these innovative shades don’t stop there. These sheer fabrics also filter out harsh UV rays to prevent your flooring and upholstery from fading over time. Depending on which fabric you choose, these window shadings can filter up to 88 percent of the sun’s harmful rays even on the brightest of days.
Do you have an eye for style? Then you will love exploring the Alustra® Collection of Silhouette. Thoughtfully crafted, this exclusive line of designed-inspired fabrics, colors, hardware, and textures provide a gorgeous look at any window. Whether you want a pop of color or neutral hues, these UV-blocking shades for homes will meet any design expectation.
Perfect for patios and sunrooms, Hunter Douglas Designer Screen Shades allow you to keep your outdoor views while offering UV protection on the brightest, hottest days. In fact, this collection of custom window treatments is one of the most robust in the industry, meaning you can enjoy these gorgeous window treatments for years to come without worry of the sun changing their structure. Blocking between 86 percent and 99 percent of the sun’s damaging rays, these shades are perfect for rooms that see lots of sunshine.
In addition to providing UV protection, Designer Screen Shades offer a variety of opacity options to meet your shade, sun, and privacy needs. Since the fabrics of these shades are organized by an openness factor–or the weave density of the screen fabric–you can choose the exact opacity that fits your home’s needs, including visibility, privacy, glare, and UV blockage. From minimum view to maximum privacy, you can customize these UV-blocking shades in a wide variety of ways.
With summer right around the corner, now is the perfect time to consider adding UV-blocking shades to your home. To learn more about the shade options listed above, or to purchase your very own, be sure to contact or visit us at Dreamweaver Interiors & Fabrics.
