Green on Blinds
Energy efficient blinds and window treatments are one way to preserve our resources. Many of our custom blinds and shades have a significant R value which is the insulation factor at which the product provides. Insulating against the cold in the winter and the heat in the summer. The higher the R value the better the insulation properties. Many times you can increase a products R value tremendously by adding liners to product such as woven woods and pleated shades. Other products such as the energy efficient Cellular/Honeycomb shades naturally have a substantial R value. Look under product description for the R value of each product.
