Perks of Solera® Soft Shades

Who doesn’t love a good perk? They make the little things in life like going to your favorite coffee shop enough to get a free beverage or that neighborhood gas station that rewards you after so many fills a fun experience. These little perks can make a big difference in our lives. That is why Imperial Blind & Shutter offers a variety of perks when it comes to its window treatments, including Hunter Douglas Solera® Soft Shades. If you want a luxurious shade that helps reduce your home’s energy bills while keeping your home comfortable, then you are in the right place.

Solera® Soft Shades are crafted to create the look of soft folds often seen on a classic Roman shade as well as provide the energy efficient perks of a cellular shade. The cellular construction of these shades helps keep your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter without spiking your energy bills. Plus, with zero cords, Solera® Soft Shades are excellent for those with small children or arthritis.

Perk 1: Comfort

While a shade won’t make us feel comfortable like a fluffy comforter will, it can make your home cool during stifling days and warm during those cooler days without sending high energy bills your way. This is because Solera® Soft Shades offer premium insulation at your windows to prevent inside air from seeping out and outside air from creeping inside your home. This is especially helpful for rooms in your home that face that hot Florida sun all day long. It also helps with rooms that are particularly drafty as well.

Perk 2: Custom Styles

While it’s wonderful that a window treatment works well, we also need it to look beautiful in our homes! Otherwise, we will cringe each time we open or close the shades. Fortunately, Solera® Soft Shades offer a gorgeous collection of fabrics and colors, including woven and non-woven fabrics, colors, textures, and patterns that we are more than happy to explore with you. The best thing about Solera® Soft Shades is that they can fit well within any home, especially with colors like Water, Linen, and more that can add a pop of color or touch of neutrality to any room.

Benefit 3: Light Control

As any Floridian knows, proper light control is a necessity in the Sunshine State. Fortunately, Solera® Soft Shades offer your perfect amount of light or shade with the Top-Down/Bottom-Up feature that lets you experience light and privacy at the same time. Plus, with no cords, this feature is excellent for kids’ rooms, those who are living with arthritis and cannot grip cords as well, or for those who simply are tired of dealing with finicky cords when operating their shades. All you have to do is push up or pull down your shades. Easy as pie!
