East Facing Windows
You have experienced the quiet stillness that comes with the morning light and rising sun. If you have East facing windows, chances are you also know the frustration and heat that fills your home by 10am. While the beauty of the morning is a boost to your mood and productivity, those intense morning rays can be a bit too much. Window coverings are necessary for you to control the light so you can enjoy the light. With the right window coverings for your East facing windows, these benefits will be yours:
Directional control of vanes that allow you to bring in the natural light, diffuse the glare, all while providing maximum view through.
Energy efficiency to keep your home at a comfortable temperature year round.
UV protection against constant rays of sunshine.
Operational features like top/down, bottom up to fit your schedule and lifestyle.
West Facing Windows
A mix of colors, the beauty of sunset. Your view is rivaled by none other if you have West facing windows. The problem is that by the time the sun is setting, your home has been baking for hours. You receive a tremendous amount of unrelenting light. Window coverings are needed so you can enjoy your view while also protecting the atmosphere of your home.

North/South Facing Windows
The benefit of having windows out of the path of direct sunlight is that you don’t often have to worry about the intensity of the sun, and with the correct window coverings, you can make the most of your home while avoiding common problems.

However, the function and use of those window coverings will help you avoid the cave-like atmosphere that comes from blocking out the light.
