This just in...

 

  ...Well, technically...this has been around for centuries! And by this I mean window treatments. Our new Blynco Window Fashions rep, Joe, dropped by on Monday and went over the latest and greatest in window fashion products with our entire staff! YAY!

 Have you ever wondered why all the hype about cellular shades? And about now you're probably thinking, "just what are cellular shades??", so I'll back up a bit...

 "Oh....ok, I've seen those..." Now, onto the hype... 

 Did you know that because of the little pocket of air between the "cells" it has one of the highest insulating properties of all window coverings available?  And, if you live anywhere the sun shines you can recognize the benefit of a good cellular shade. Just imagine, sun pounding a southern or western exposed window, heating up your entire residence ( I know you've all had experience with that one). In struts the cellular shade, trapping the heat between the nifty little pockets, allowing your room to stay more comfortable.

 Cellular shades aren't just your grandma's shades! They come in a wide variety of colors, materials and sun-blocking properties. You can have anywhere from a simple light filtering shade to a black-out shade. They also go right to the edge of the window on the sides so you don't have a little hole peeking out from the sides! NICE!

 And, now my favorite part of all is the "top down, bottom up" style of cellular shades. Not quite like a convertible car, though the weather right now would be PERFECT convertible weather... but I digress... back to the shades...


Top down, bottom up refers to the mechanisms on the shade it's self. You can have the bottom up a little and the top down a little and a little privacy right in the middle of the window.


"I'm so happy, this is so easy!"

"I'm so happy, this is so easy!"

 

See how easy they are to operate? This lady is so happy!

They even come in remote control versions if you just can't manage to pull yourself away from your book to get up and pull it up or down or both...

 

 

 

  So, here's the deal. If you're in the market for a good energy-saving, trendy product, which is also aesthetically pleasing, come on by the studio and we'd be happy to help you with any decision! I'm sure there's a window-treatment that's right for you!

Happy Designing!
