Cellular Shades: Enhancing Style and Energy Efficiency

Cellular Shades, also known as honeycomb shades, offer a perfect blend of style and functionality…with an emphasis on functionality! Their unique cellular construction features air pockets that act as insulators, improving energy efficiency and reducing heating and cooling costs. With their sleek and innovative design, Cellular Shades complement the clean lines and contemporary look of up-to-date interiors. And thanks to their layered design, Cellular Shades can help absorb sound, reducing noise from outside and creating a quieter, more peaceful living space. This added benefit is especially useful in urban areas. 

Cellular Shades are available in a wide variety of colors and opacity levels, allowing you to achieve your desired level of privacy and light control.

Roller Shades: Embracing Simplicity and Versatility

Roller Shades are a timeless and versatile window treatment option for trendy homes. With their clean lines, they provide a sleek and minimalistic look. Their seamless movement and overall design makes Roller Shades the epitome of stylish home aesthetics. Roller Shades are available in many different fabrics and colors, allowing you to customize them to match your own interior design style.

Screen Shades: Preserve Views and Filter Light

For modern homes with beautiful outdoor views, Screen Shades are an excellent choice. These shades are made of a sheer fabric that filters light while maintaining visibility to the outside. Screen Shades provide a comfortable and soothing ambiance by reducing glare and blocking harmful UV rays. They offer privacy during the day while preserving your connection to the outdoors.

Motorization: Elevating Convenience and Control

Motorization is a key tool that enhances the functionality and convenience of innovative window treatments. By incorporating motorized options, you can effortlessly raise or lower your shades with your Kirsch remote, your smartphone app or with automated schedules that you create. Motorization brings an added layer of luxury to your home and allows you to control your window treatments with a simple click. Experience the ease and convenience that controlled window treatments offer, transforming your home into a smart home with style.
