Solar Shades blend well with contemporary design. They block more light and provide more privacy. They gently diffuse light, protecting your room from the sun without blocking your view. They reduce glare and improve energy efficiency by limiting solar heat gain. They absorb and reflect solar heat before it actually enters the window. So, by limiting solar heat gain, these shades are very energy efficient and will help to lower your utility bills, plus they work in both the summer and winter.
