Winter can be so gray and gloomy. Make sure to put out some accent pillows or blankets that utilize bright colors!

Feel The Breeze:
Is there a better feeling than that first cool breeze on a warm spring day? Nothing says spring time like a comfortable breeze flowing through your home. In some situations, pulling up your blinds or shades is very simple, but in other circumstances, the sun can be damaging to hard wood floors or expensive rugs. According to Floor Covering News, “The constant bombardment on a daily basis from the sun and UV light can fade flooring materials, dry them out, cause them to warp, crack, decompose, degrade and literally burn up.” A sheered shade or sheer drapery panels are a great way to feel the breeze, but also get the need UV protection. It is the best of both worlds. If blinds or shades are already present in your window, a simple add of sheer drapery panels will give you that glorious spring time breeze without damaging your investment!
See The View:
If you are fortunate enough to have an outstanding view through your windows and the glaring sun is not a problem, then you are a candidate to simply adjust your window treatments to maximize your view! Depending on which blind, shade or shutter you have, different products can be manipulated to redirect sunlight.
