Temperatures are already starting to rise as the sun gains more strength for the summer months

Summer is right around the corner and with it comes the opportunity to ready homes for summer. The sun’s UV rays can fade furniture, pictures and antiques. The sun also causes computer glare that results in eye strain. Blinds Chalet’s new summer line of window treatments solves these problems.
Roman shades or shades that employ heavy material can make a room feel cozy in the winter but can be overkill in the summer. Back by popular demand this year are the Eco-Green line of solar screen shades and roller shades. Made from environmentally friendly fabrics, EcoGreen Roller Shades help conserve the environment and beautify windows. Both shades are PVC-free and contain no volatile organic compounds. They are 100% recyclable to keep landfills free. They are also LEED certification friendly because of their energy performance, material and resource use and indoor environmental quality.
Also on the summer line-up are the top-down, bottom-up lines of honeycomb cellular shades. Known for their energy efficiency, these blinds are perfect for rooms that get direct sunlight. The top-down, bottom-up aspect allows natural light to enter the room while blocking harmful UV rays. With two and three day production times on these blinds, a room can be summarized within the week.
Sheer Weave Roller Shades -14% rounds out the list. Ideal to shade and cool a room, house or office, while still allowing views in, roller shades are one of the most popular shades for year-round warm climates and can be used under more formal blinds like roman shades. They offer excellent to superior UV protection when closed, are the best quality sunscreen roller shades made and offer
14% open fabric for enjoyment of views.
“Temperatures are already starting to rise as the sun gains more strength for the summer months,” says Chris Stanley of Blinds Chalet, “which is why we are recommending customers begin protecting their homes against the sun’s harsh UV rays today.”
