Going Green With Your Window Treatment Choices in Oakley, OH

Oakley window treatments

Choosing between custom shutters, shades, blinds, and motorization is about marrying the right combination of form and function. Your window treatments should work for you while looking good, and for modern-day Oakley homeowners, they should also be eco-friendly.

Homeowners want window dressings that produce some green aspect to help reduce their carbon footprint. The good news is that multiple options are available to help create a more environmentally responsible household.

Beautiful & Eco-Friendly Window Dressings for Your Oakley Home

What constitutes a green window treatment? What characteristics should you look for to ensure you get greener window coverings?

  • Window Insulation - Window treatments that help insulate your windows' glass will improve your home's energy efficiency. Reducing energy loss helps make your household greener and enables you to save some green each month when you pay your heating and cooling bill. Shutters, cellular shades, and various textures for blinds are the best choices for insulating your windows.
  • Sustainable Materials - Natural fibers for woven wood window shades are some of the most popular choices right now because they're made from a renewable resource. Eco-friendly materials mean you're not depleting a resource or choosing manufactured materials that pollute the environment during the construction phase. Wood blinds are a great window-covering choice and look for a diverse range of wooden and faux textures for your window blinds.
  • Choose Recyclable/Recycled Materials - You can do your part for a greener household and healthier environment by selecting window coverings made from recycled materials or at least recyclable once you're done with yours, they won't end up in a landfill. Aluminum, vinyl, and wood are some examples of recyclable materials, but it may take some research to find a location to recycle your window treatments once you're done with them. Remember that donating outdated window dressings so they can be reused is also a greener option than throwing them out.
