How can window shades possibly add romance to your life? It’s simple! When Spring and Summer approaches, the days grow longer and the sun remains bright until 10 or 11 in the evening. It is very difficult to convince children that, in fact, it IS bedtime! So if you would like to spend a romantic evening alone with your partner, it is in your best interest to provide a dark and cozy space to help your children fall asleep in!
There are many window covering options that provide room darkening, but the very best products to accomplish this are cellular honeycomb shades. Hunter Douglas Applause and Duette window shades are great options – they can be fit very tightly into the window opening – there is minimal light gap at the sides of the shades. If that is even too much light, the addition of drapery side panels can provide almost total room darkening to encourage sleep. In addition, the excellent insulating properties of Applause and Duette honeycomb shades ensure that the temperature of the room is kept comfortable – cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
Using window coverings to create a comfortable sleeping environment for your children will ensure that they get the sleep that they need, leaving those extra evening hours to enjoy quality time with your partner!
