Real Customer Story: Solar Shades for Seaside Home

Abigail Sawyer | 13 Feb 2013 | Solar Shades

One of our customers needed new window shades to protect her family and coastal California home from harmful UV rays. She chose the Solar Roller Shades and they’re perfect for her ocean view picture windows. They keep out glare, without blocking her beautiful view.

“These Blinds Are Great!”

Hear What She Had to Say:

“These blinds are perfect for my home at the ocean. I needed to reduce glare from the setting sun but hated to cover up the view. When I found out about solar shades I was thrilled. I ordered one shade for my laundry room just to find out the quality and how well the view could be seen through them.”

“When I found out about solar shades I was thrilled.”

“The quality is great and the view isn’t obscured so I ordered these blinds for the rest of the house. I intend to put drapes or curtains up over the solar shades in the bedrooms for privacy at night.” ~ Julie H. from California
