I want to preserve the beautiful view out of my windows, but I also want to block some of the incoming sun and heat in the late afternoon. I'm concerned about the sun damaging my furniture and carpets. What would you suggest?We have some wonderful products for you to choose from that will allow you to maintain your view when you want it but will also preserve your privacy-and, in addition, these products will also block a hot sun from heating up your room and damaging your furniture and accessories. My favorite product for this is our Silhouette® window shadings. It is so versatile! It has fabric-covered vanes that are suspended between sheer fabric facings. The vanes rotate for privacy but for you, they allow you to control that light when you have the hot sun. The vanes in the open position will always give you a soft-filtered view but in the closed position you will be able to close out that sun. When the sun doesn't interfere you can raise the Silhouette shadings totally off your windows. They retract into their own headrail, giving you a completely unencumbered view.
Also, Silhouette window shadings have a wonderful benefit of blocking out 78% to 88% of ultraviolet rays (depending on the fabric chosen) when in the open position-which means when you can see out. When you close the soft vanes, they offer you 99% UV protection. This will help to protect your furniture, carpet, accessories and upholstery for the future.
