Cellular (Honeycomb) Shades
Also referred to as Honeycomb Shades or Cellular Blinds, “Cellulars“, are also quite popular. Cellular blinds offer the best insulating benefit of various window treatment styles, and can be a good option for “black out” or room darkening applications. Because they can filter light so well, Cellular Shades are also a great protection against harmful UV rays, protecting your furniture and floors from fading. One popular option is “Top Down Bottom Up”, allowing you to lower the top of the blind for more light and view, while still maintaining your privacy.
Interior Shutters, or Plantation Shutters are extremely popular in our area because they offer the widest range of light control and privacy. Our Shutters can be custom fabricated to fit just about any shaped window – including arched windows and angled windows – also a favorite feature for Coeur d’Alene lakefront homes and businesses.
From roller shades and solar shades, to sheer shades, cellular shades, Roman shades and woven wood (or grass) shades – Interior Shades offer an extremely wide variety of window covering options for our any type of window. This is why shades of all types are popular in our area’s homes and businesses. From elegant light filtering shades to complete room darkening blinds, each style of window treatment offers a unique combination of style and function.
Sheer Shades have a unique ability to beautifully filter sunlight and add privacy while keeping our area’s beautiful views visible. Choose from a wide variety of “sheers”, fabrics and transparency to create the perfect balance of view, privacy and light filtration. Add motorization to your sheer shades for even more control over your view and privacy as you integrate your window treatments into your smart home or office.
There are a lot of styles of “Blinds” including vertical blinds, aluminum blinds “Venetian” blinds, wood blinds, faux wood blinds and more. Typically, a blind has slats that open and close, whether vertical or horizontal. You can control the amount of light filtration, privacy and how much view you want by how much you open and close your blinds. Motorization is quite popular with blinds in our area as it takes control to a whole new level for your smart home or office.
Custom Drapery & Curtains
Custom Drapes, or Curtains can be custom tailored to meet your room’s exact decor and view management needs. As a stand-alone window treatment, custom draperies can give your room a level of modern sophistication or old-world elegance. Or, combine that look with the function of Roman shades, vertical blinds, roll screens or horizontal blinds to maximize your control over privacy and sunlight. Like other window covering styles, drapes can also be motorized, adding a layer of comfort and convenience to your smart home or office and making your drapes remote controlled from your smartphone, anywhere in the world.
