Today’s smart home arsenal consists of everything from smart door locks, thermostats and speakers to smart coffee makers, refrigerators and even smart shades.
Natural light is nature’s cure-all, serving as an energizing mood-booster and stress-reducer. Plus, it brightens interiors better than any light bulb.
You’ve decided to refresh your bedroom or living room, and you’re working on a plan—paint colors, light fixtures and a couple of pieces of new wall art. That begs the question: Should you stick with your current window treatments?
When it comes to new blinds or shades, in addition to choosing a style and color, you’ll also need to consider whether you want to mount your window treatments inside or outside the frame.
Pairing shades and drapes can add drama and dimension to a room, while providing flexible light control and adding more insulation at the window.
Why leave patio or sliding-glass doors bare, when you can add window treatments? Doing so gives you a trifecta of benefits: you can manage natural light, create privacy when you want it, as well as add a layer of insulation over the glass.
