Get Ready for Winter: Stay Warm & Energized

It’s that time of year again. Soon the streets will be full of ice and snow and you’ll be bundling up to keep warm. Are you ready for winter? The whole season can seem so dark and dreary. Doesn’t it sound like a better idea to stay curled up in bed all day? We know you have things to do, so we’re here to show you how to increase your comfort and productivity this winter.


Embrace the Light

We know, winter can be so cloudy and gray. But, a shining ray of sunlight can boost your mood in an instant. One way to get ready for winter this year is to harvest the natural light in your home. Natural light can give you energy, which will boost your mood and productivity. Even on the dreariest days, you’ll feel happy! The key is to bring in the right amount of light.

It’s easy to overexpose your space with bright light, especially when the outside world is covered in snow. It’s all about light control, which will depend on the windows in your home. Where are the located? How much light comes through? You’ll need light filtering, directional control, and, of course, the right fabrics to enhance the style.


Maintain Your Privacy

Fall is transitioning into winter, which means the leaves are falling off your trees. Have you realized that your neighbors can now see right into your living room? Bringing in natural light while maintaining privacy can be a challenge, but we have a solution, and it’s called daylighting. Top down bottom up shades will give you exactly what you need.
