Okanagan Sunshine and Shade & Blind Solutions

Welcome back to our blazing time of year again here in the stunning Okanagan Valley! If you are already dreading this year’s air conditioning bills, you are not alone. Heating and air conditioning costs continually fluctuate, drastically impacting a household’s budget. If you are hoping to free up some extra money each month by reducing your energy bills, Michelle from The Well Dressed Window in Kelowna has a variety of affordable Hunter Douglas options for you to explore.

Energy Saving 101

The right window coverings add efficient solutions to your home. While many people initially consider the aesthetic component, today’s blinds have become extremely functional in terms of energy efficiency. Trapping the heat during the winter months helps to keep your home or office cozy. Conversely, blocking the UV rays during the warmer seasons can dramatically cool down your living space. Just think of the options you could have with a little more money in your pocket every month.

Proper Installation Is Paramount

The Well Dressed Window can easily install all of your Kelowna window coverings for your residential and commercial applications. Professional installation plays a key role in determining overall efficiency within your new design. Protect your investment and let us take care of hanging your new window treatments. Harder to access areas including vaulted ceilings and split-level layouts are important to consider covering to maximize your energy efficiency. With Hunter Douglas’ custom shades, blinds, shutters and drapery options, no window is too large or small to take care of.

Stop the Heat Before It Hits Your Home with Exterior Shade Solutions

Utilizing blinds, roller shades or shutters along your deck, porch or balcony can drastically stop the rays from penetrating. This is an excellent way to enhance privacy from neighbours while reducing the chances of UV rays accessing your home or office. Stylish, effective and easy to operate, Hunter Douglas custom window treatments offer a variety of textures, colours and styles to seamlessly enhance your exterior and interior. Control the amount of light and ventilation by partially opening your blinds to enjoy a breeze without the intense glare.

Motorized Blinds: Set Your Timer and Let Technology Take Over

Hunter Douglas offers motorized options to streamline your ability to raise and lower your window coverings without the chaos of chords and having to rearrange your furniture every time you want to adjust your window coverings. Enjoy the flexibility of pushing a button on an easy to use remote or have your window coverings wired into your home security! Simply set the time of day and enjoy coming home to a cool oasis or awaking to a sunny bedroom. All Hunter Douglas blinds have the ability to be motorized.

Add Style and Efficiency for Years To Come

Any time of year is great for upgrading your current window treatments; however, when the temperatures are in the mid 30’s, this may be on the forefront of your mind. Arrange a consultation with The Well Dressed Window today to determine which Hunter Douglas window coverings will best suit your budget and your style.
