One Room – Three Styles

One Room, Three Styles
This Quaint Berkshire apartment kitchen features three styles of our Custom Thermal Shades: The large window is our Wide Pleat Roman Style, On the door is our Stagecoach shade, and over the sink is an inside mount Classic Roman Shade.

This quaint Berkshire apartment just got cozier with new Custom Thermal Shades. Although they are all different styles, the common gold fabric ties them all together.

Let’s delve a little deeper to understand why each style was chose for the individual windows.

Over the sink there is little to no space to mount a shade above the window frame, so an “Inside mount” Classic Roman Custom Thermal Shade is the best choice for this small window. The shade is mounted on a board, which is then attached up and under the inside top of the window. An easy open and close with the pull cord allows the sunshine in, and “putting your windows to bed for the night” to keep out winter cold. Magnetic strips adhered to the woodwork on each side of the window trim are pole matched with magnets sewn into the sides of the Custom Thermal Shade, while a metal weight bar sits on the windowsill, ensuring an end to cold drafts.

The Stagecoach Custom Thermal Shade affords both privacy and insulating factor to the window in the door. Industrial Velcro holds this shade to the top of the door, with “loop” sewn on all four sides of the shade, and matching sticky-back “hook” on the window trim on the door stops cold from entering from the sides of this insulated shade. The Stagecoach shade can easily be opened by folding or rolling the shade and securing with the ties at the top of the shade. The stagecoach is best for smaller windows and is a favorite for doors and for windows in RV applications.

All together these three Custom Thermal Shades reduce heat loss and block out the cold, making this vintage kitchen the perfect place to cozy up and have a cup of cocoa with Grandma.
