Reasons to Have Sheer Shades at Home
Sheer shades might seem like a silly concept, but they can be highly versatile and fashionable for modern home and apartment interiors. Sheer shades are making an entry into the Toronto and Mississauga design sphere, and with good reason. Here are some of the reasons why these window treatments are a good option for your home:
For spaces where light is a must alongside privacy, such as kitchens or bathrooms, sheer shades are a wonderful choice. Pulling back opaque window coverings is too exposing and can expose these interiors to excessive sunlight. For this reason, translucent shades are perfect for filtering natural light, offering UV protection and maintaining the privacy of these interiors.
The delicate style of these shades’ ads a whimsical, bright look to any interior. If you’re looking to soften a room with warmth and light, sheer shades can create this new look with ease.
The sun’s UV rays can quickly fade the colours on furniture and carpets. Sheer or opaque shades allow you to simultaneously enjoy sunlight, while allowing you to control the amount of light coming inside. This prevents damage to your rugs, carpets, furniture and paint, and reduces unnecessary glare.
If your windows face a busy street or another home/apartment (as is often the case in Mississauga and Toronto) you might think you have to sacrifice sunlight for privacy. This is totally not the case! Sheer shades are the perfect solution for the windows that face your neighbours. Stop people from peeking into your living room and allow the full morning light to envelop your home with a soft, natural glow with custom sheer shades.
As the fabrics and materials used in most sheer window treatments are lightweight, these window coverings are a far more affordable option than others. Heavy drapes and roller blinds are notably more expensive, not to mention wooden treatments such as shutters. If you have many windows, or larger ones which would be difficult to cover with conventional window treatments, sheer drapes can save you money and effort! Prime Window Coverings installs roller shades Mississauga and Toronto wide and can help you find the window covering most suitable to your budget and needs.
Versatile and Customizable
There is a huge variety of colours and styles of sheer shades that can be customized to match the style of your interior. Use them solo, or in combination with heavy blinds and curtains. Mix and match colours and fabrics to your furniture and carpets. The possibilities of these types of window coverings are endless!
How to Care For Sheer Shades
While it’s easy to fall in love with sheer shades, you need to remember that keeping them clean allows them to remain in pristine condition. Here’s how to clean these beautiful, versatile shades:
- Avoid chemicals or hard water, as this might bleach or damage the fabric.
- When dusting, use a feather duster over a harsher cloth.
- Use a vacuum cleaner on a low suction setting with a brush attachment, to avoid crinkling or damaging the fabric.
- If at any point you need to clean a stain, use a damp sponge and a mild soap instead of harsh detergents. Never use any chemicals on the fabric.
- Make sure to follow all instructions of both the manufacturer, as well as the installation professionals.
- Ask Prime Window Coverings questions should the need arise! We’re here to help.
Sheer shades work particularly well in areas like hallways or entrances. They are a great choice for bedrooms and living rooms, offering sunlight alongside privacy. If installing them in any moisture prone area, remember to take extra care to pick a fabric that is moisture resistant to prolong the lifespan of your new, trendy window treatment.
