"Windows perform the vital role of allowing ventilation and light into your home. However, you shouldn‚§™t think of them in strictly utilitarian terms. After all, they are also major architectural features, with the average house having at least eight windows. By adding window treatments to them, you can quickly ‚§“ and affordably ‚§“ make your home more stylish.One of the best options out there are window shades. Unlike blinds, which have slats or vanes, shades are made of a continuous roll of material that is drawn down to cover a window. It offers excellent light control and boosts energy efficiency, aside from beautifying a space."
