Designer Vs. Solar Shades
We received a question from a customer the other day looking to understand the difference between Designer Shades and Solar Shades. Shade Works Designer and Solar Shades are offered on our Roller, Roman and Panel Track Shades. Shade Works Designer Shades are a great way to dress up your windows in a cost effective manner. Our Designer Shades are offered in , and Designer Print Variations. Designer Light Filtering Shades achieve a classic, clean style that allows some light to pass through into your room. Shade Works Designer Blackout Shades are optimized for bedrooms and media rooms whereby 100% of incoming light is blocked. Fabrics in this collection will offer you complete and total privacy. Our Designer Print Light Filtering Shades are offered in a variety of creative and elegant floral patterns. Shade Works Solar Shades are offered in three variations; Basic, Decorative and Metallic. Solar Shade products offer you the benefit of increased energy efficiency and reduced cooling costs. Each product has an exact percentage associated with it to describe how much light is able to pass through into the room, ranging from 1% to 10%. Shade Works Solar Shades offer greater UV protection for your home, including the floors and all of your furniture. Fabric selections range from “Classic” weaves, which utilize more traditional, thick fabrics, to “Modern” weaves, which incorporate thinner fabrics. Our Basic Solar Shade product line are a cost-effective, no frills alternative for optimal UV protection. Shade Works Decorative Solar Shades are available in 3% and 5% with fabrics that are textured and very natural looking. The varied but subtle pattern in the fabric provides added dimension and depth. Metallic Solar Shades are available in 4% Openness Factor and utilize high performance fabrics to deliver optimized heat and light control. Please contact our team with questions or concerns!
