San Antonio’s Top 5 Window Covering Features

Curious about what most San Antonio homeowners are looking for when it comes to window covering features? We’ve got the top 5! Here in Texas, we appreciate the hot weather and gorgeous sunshine. But, we also need solutions that let us enjoy our homes to the fullest. Let’s explore what other Texans are finding the most important ways to control the intensity of sunshine and heat…

Glass Doors

An important part of any home, glass doors are a convenient way to get fresh air. But, they’re much more than a window–they have to open and close easily, making it a challenge to cover them. Glass doors let in a lot of sunshine, which can lead to exhausting heat and faded furnishings, so getting control is vital. What’s possible? Visit our glass door solutions page to see the wide selection of window features and products we offer.

Remote Control

Are you ready to add smart blinds to your home? Many San Antonio homeowners are looking for motorized shades, smart drapes and remote control blinds. With a simple tap on the remote, a swipe on your phone’s app, or a voice command to Alexa, your smart shades can adjust open, closed, or anywhere in between. Explore today’s most frequently asked questions with our recent article.

Top Down Shades

Bringing sunshine in across the ceiling, but keeping the rest of the window covered…it’s one of our most popular window covering features. Top down bottom up allows you to customize how the light enters your home, but without sacrificing that light. Protect the privacy and interior temperatures of your home while your space is brightened from the top of the window.

Energy Efficiency

It makes sense that Texans would be searching for ways to protect the interior temperatures of their homes. San Antonio summers are scorchers; those utility bills are only going to get higher. Our wood shutters are known for insulating windows from heat entering, and they block the sunshine from streaming in to heat the interior air. We also have a wide selection of energy efficient shades to choose from. Our Hunter Douglas collection of thermal shades have received industry awards for providing exceptional insulation, resulting in lower utility bills.

Floor to Ceiling Windows

The large windows of your home…they bring in gorgeous light and beautiful outdoor scenes. On the other hand, that light can flood the room with harsh rays and heat. Do you know that you can get the coverage you need for floor to ceiling windows, while also enjoying light and scenic views? It’s true. You’ll enhance the design while creating the best atmosphere in your home with the right window covering features.
