Made in the Shade describes Roman shades for your Prescott home

Made in the Shade can create elegant custom window treatments like Roman shades for your Prescott home.
While Roman shades have not been a highly sought-after window treatment for some time, in the last few years they have begun to make a resurgence. This type of blind can be full of character which can brighten or accent any room. Made in the Shade wants to educate Prescott homeowners on the benefits of Roman shades.

If you decide that Roman shades are right for your home, it will be necessary to determine which style of Roman shade to use. There are two types: Flat and Waterfall (or Hobbled). Choosing the style that best fits your design will help bring the elements of a room into one cohesive piece.

Flat Roman Shades
This type of shade offers many bold design choices. It is created using a single piece of fabric. This continuous fabric provides a simple and casual look which is ideal for displaying the colors and patterns of the shade. This single fabric panel is pleated which allows it to fold uniformly. While it may have a casual feel, you can use any fabric which could showcase a complex design.

Waterfall Roman Shades
The Waterfall (or Hobbled) shade is also made using an individual piece of fabric. However, it is not pleated which can offer a different room feel. When the shade is pulled up, it simply bows in the middle instead of stacking like the Flat Roman shades. The Waterfall shade adds a sense of sophistication that you do not get from other shades.

Choosing the right shades for your room is both exciting and challenging. Take the time to compare your options, and choose what works best for your space. If you have questions about the best shades for your Prescott home, call Made in the Shade at 928-308-9998 or contact us online at

Made in the Shade shares energy saving benefits of window coverings for your Prescott home

Made in the Shade can provide energy-efficient quality shades for your Prescott home.
There are many things to think about when you are considering options for window coverings. One of these considerations is energy efficiency. The primary benefit of energy efficient window coverings is that they can provide significant savings on the cost of heating and cooling. Made in the Shade helps Prescott homeowners learn the benefits of energy saving shades.

Cellular Shades
This type of shade comes in a wide range of fabrics and is said to be the most energy-efficient shade available. Its R-value ranges from about 2.0 to 5.0. The efficiency of the cellular shade is largely determined by the fabric type. This includes single cell and double cell shades. It is important to note that double cell fabrics will provide a higher R-value than single cell shades.

Shutters, also known as plantation shutters, are the middle of the road. Their R-value ranges from 2.77 to sometimes as much as 4.0. Your options with shutters are wood and vinyl. Wood shutters may provide a warmer look for your home, but vinyl shutters will generally provide greater energy efficiency.

There are a number of options when considering blinds: wood, faux wood, aluminum; and there are horizontal and vertical blinds with varying sizes of slats as well. Typically horizontal blinds average around 2.5 for their R-value. Again, the type of material you choose will determine to a large extent the R-value.

Roller Shades
While these have the lowest R-value range at around 1.3 to 1.8, the roller shades do give you a wide variety of options. You can choose from decorative, solar screen, blackout, or light-filtering shades. As with the cellular shades and plantation shutters, the R-value of each roller shade style depends on the composition of the material.

Window treatments can be one of greatest investments for energy efficiency in your home. If you are considering replacing your window treatments and would like more information on the energy saving benefits of blinds, shades, and shutters for your Prescott home, contact Made in the Shade at 928-308-9998.

Made in the Shade discusses motorized window treatments for your Prescott home

Made in the Shade can install motorized window treatments to add value and safety to your Prescott home.Design, convenience and versatility are just some of the benefits of letting Made in the Shade swap out the window treatments in your Prescott home or business for today's trending, smart motorized shade systems.

A number of manufacturers of home automation systems have integrated their products with motorized window treatments allowing your beautiful new window treatments to move in conjunction with your other smart home components like heating and cooling, lighting and music. Integrating all of these systems can add greatly to your home's value making the addition of motorized window treatments a serious consideration.

Here are even more reasons to replace your existing window treatments with motorized systems:

1. Motorized shades save money.  They can reposition themselves automatically based on the level of brightness of the sun or the time of day. Reducing the impact of direct sunlight means your home’s air conditioner will run less and that means you save on utility bills.

2. Motorized shades help protect your home from break-ins. Window treatments that open and close throughout the day gives the appearance that someone is at home, and that makes your home a lot less vulnerable to intruders.

3. Motorized shades aren’t just window treatments. Homeowners can mount the hardware so that the treatment acts as a beautiful room divider, acts to cover a projection screen in your home theater, and even acts as the video screen itself.

4. Motorized shades are safer for your children and pets than window treatments with manual controls. With no manual controls, your kids and animals can't get dangerously tangled up in the traditional pull cords of non-motorized systems.

5. Motorized shades don't stop working if the power goes out because they can be powered by electricity or batteries. In addition to shape, style and fabric options there are options for operating your new shades. Electricity is not the only choice any longer.

If you're a Prescott home or business owner that is interested in having greater security while you're away, reducing utility costs, improving your property's value, and enjoying the ease of controlling motorized shades with a mobile app, then it's time to call the experts at Made in the Shade.
