Choosing the Right Shade for You and Your Environment

Finding the right window treatment to complement your interiors can be overwhelming, but Graber is here to help you in the process. Here are some of the most important factors to consider when choosing a solution that’s right for you.

How is the space used? Considering the purpose of a room will help define the ideal design style for your window treatments. A spacious room used for entertaining or gathering can be elevated with uniquely patterned drapery. A working space, such as an office, is perfect for simple yet sophisticated shades. Bottom up/top down shades help maintain beautiful outdoor views, while natural shade materials bring the outdoors inside. 

Function is just as important as style. When it comes to fulfilling a certain need, Graber offers solutions for everything from light and privacy to energy efficiency to safety features and more. 

Privacy is an important consideration particularly for bedrooms and bathrooms. Graber offers a complete range of privacy levels, from light filtering sheer shades to total blackout shades ensuring ultimate comfort and ease. 

Exposure to the elements can cause uncomfortable temperature fluctuation and damage to textiles. Windows facing south or west can suffer the most, as well as those exposed to the humidity of bathrooms. Graber’s variety of solutions offer UV protection, insulation against heat and cold, and fade-resistance to ensure your room is not only stylish but energy efficient. 

There’s no need to sacrifice safety for style with Graber’s many safety features, including motorized and cordless lift. These are ideal for homes with children and pets. Motorized blinds and shades provide ease of use with total control at the click of a button.  

Once you’ve considered these topics, put your thinking into action with the Graber Product Advisor, a great resource for finding your perfect match.
