When you want to install exterior window shades in your home, consider these top tips for choosing the right ones!

The Amount of Light

Consider how much light you want to let through your exterior shades, which might differ room by room. For example, you may want a bright kitchen but want a darker, cooler living room and master bedroom. If this is the case, choose a different shade fabrics that fit your preference.

Manual / Motorized Shades

Another thing to consider when making your decision on shades is to decide whether you would like to manually open and close your outdoor shades. Or, you can choose to pick motorized options that easily lift and lower easily when you want more or less sun let in.
