Energy Efficiency

Having a window shade of any kind is the first step to creating more energy efficiency in a room. By covering your window you are controlling your energy costs. The material used in Redi Shade cellular shades helps keep your room warmer in the winter, and cooler in the summer, conserving energy.

Artisan Custom Shades

When fully closed, the honeycomb cellular construction of Artisan Custom cellular shades helps to control the temperature of a room by either keeping warm or cool air out, or locking warm or cool air in. They also keep a room cooler by blocking harsh sunlight during summer months. Artisan Custom shades trap harmful UV rays, keeping them out of your room and protecting the interior of your home from sun fading.
