Daylighting for Earth Day

Pirouette Window Shadings and Luminette Privacy Sheers are both great for defusing the day light into your home.

Daylighting is the practice of lighting rooms with natural light during the day rather than generating illumination from electricity. As Austin’s oldest and largest Hunter Douglas Window Fashions Gallery, Austin Window Fashions offers many different window covering options to control the natural light coming into your room. We carry beautiful sheer shades and other select styles that diffuse light as it enters and help to draw it deeper into the room. You can also direct incoming light where it's needed most by tilting the louvers, slats and vanes on blinds and plantation shutters. By drawing natural light into a room with your window treatments, you can reduce your energy needs for other types of lighting during the day. A way your window coverings help your home feel brighter even at night is by choosing blinds or shades in a light or white color. When closed at night, the white interior of the blinds, shades or shutters helps reflect your indoor lighting back into the room and keep things brighter.

And once the sun goes down, Lighting Inc. is your local source for the perfect lighting for all your interior and exterior illumination needs. Visit our neighboring Lighting Inc location on Burnet Rd, just in front of the Austin Window Fashions showroom.
