Our Reno sunshine can be a bit intense at times, but during this season of year, it can also be a welcome sight. It all depends on the location of your windows. Window placement can mean lovely rays of sunshine dancing near your home, or frustrating sun for hours on end. The latter of the two can lead to faded floors and furniture, not to mention the obvious frustration of that glare. We want you to enjoy the sunshine and take advantage of the natural light available to your home. We can help you find just the right window coverings that will let the light work for you …regardless of window placement!

The beauty of sunrise, the quiet stillness as day begins. You probably know how it feels to be lulled awake by the early morning light. The warmth of the rays add a cozy feeling after a cool night. You probably get more done, as that natural light adds productivity to your early morning. However, by Ten O’Clock in the morning, you might be sweating because of that sunshine. It enters your windows, heating your home to unbearable temperatures. You need window coverings with benefits that allow you to enjoy the beauty of the sunrise and morning light, without adding to the temperature. Soft, filtered light will bring in the natural light, but still provide you with the privacy and UV protection you need. Ease of operation means you can change the direction of the vanes, let light in above the window coverings – instead of below, and make those adjustments regularly according to circumstance.

It would be nice, of course, if that was the only effect of having West facing windows. The truth is, you probably understand what it is like to come home, after a long day, to a house that has been baking in the sun for six hours. Your furniture, artwork, flooring…all of your belongings are at the mercy of that intense light. Window coverings can offer you solutions so you can enjoy the sunset, while still preserving your privacy. You will be able to step into a comfortable temperature, without running up your energy bills. You can enjoy the ease of adjustment, so your lifestyle dictates the light control, not the light controlling you.
