A Simple Guide to Window Coverings This Spring

Do you feel it? That’s right, spring is just around the corner! Soon flowers will be blooming, birds will be singing, and sunshine will be flooding into your home. One of Made in the Shade of Northern Virginia’s favorite window coverings for controlling those damaging rays of sun, while still adding color and style, are solar shades. Solar shades are effective at reducing heat and filtering or even blocking light, and they come in a wide variety of colors and styles.

Have a hard to reach window in that two-story foyer or grand family room? Solar shades with motorization make lowering and raising your shades as simple as a push of a button from your favorite easy chair. You can even coordinate the raising and lowering of the shades with your preferred home automation service. For example, you can simply ask Alexa to raise or lower the shades without having to stop what you’re doing! We can raise one shade or multiple shades at the same time, darkening the room for the game or your favorite movie in a snap.

Have a covered deck or patio, but for some portion of the day the sun is just too much? We can make your favorite outdoor space cooler and more enjoyable on those warm, sunny days by installing Exterior solar shades. Whether motorized or manual, our exterior solar shades can tame that hot sun, yet retain your view, enabling you to keep an eye on the children in the pool or yard.

Not sure about Solar Shades?  Looking for something a little more stylish, perhaps a little bolder?  Let us show you Tableaux’s Faux Iron Grills. These lightweight, sturdy grills offer a unique architectural flair to your home that few window coverings can. Add a solar screen to your favorite grill pattern to reduce the heat and glare while still letting in natural light and maintaining the view. Tableaux Grills come in numerous textures, designs, and colors. Have an odd- shaped window? No problem! Tableaux can custom create a grill to fit any sized window, satisfying your unique style.

Tableaux Grills are not only used to cover windows! Beautiful your home with one of the many geometric or floral design options on a tray ceiling, create a room divider, or a dramatic montage on the wall.  Whatever you can imagine, Tableaux can likely help make it reality. Tableaux’s Grills are low maintenance, and many of their products can be used both indoors and outdoors. Tableaux Faux Iron Grills afford endless style possibilities for you and your home.
