Richmond shadings, light control, privacy, sun blocking

By: Windowworks  09-12-2011

Though ubiquitous, the powerful effect of light is often overlooked. Light has the curtained ability to affect moods, dramatically change the appearance of colors, and transform the entire ambience of a room. Whether you prefer a warm, golden glow, full-sun radiance, or somewhere in between – understanding your light needs is key before selecting your shadings.

With the gentle tug of a cord, shadings enable you to beautify your home with stunning gradations of light and shadow. Without sacrificing privacy, a layer of sheer fabric shadings elegantly soften and diffuse the natural light entering a room, while filtering out brightness, glare, and harmful ultraviolet rays. A magnificent, subdued view of the outside remains, creating the perfect environment to relax on the couch and read.
