From their love for tinkering with tools to their obsession with grilling, every father seems to have their own brand of “dadness.” So, when it comes to choosing a window covering, why not play into his dad stereotype? Let’s dive into some common personas and share which window covering best suits him!
Outdoorsy Dad: Craftsman Roman Shades
This doesn’t need much explanation. Dads rock plaid, so why not treat them to plaid window coverings? Capture the essence of the popular Craftsman design aesthetic in these roman shades. The rugged look and feel of earthy, natural materials will make him feel like he’s in the great outdoors even while he’s in the suburbs. The richly textured, easy-care materials come in a three-tiered selection: Rugged, Plaid, and Dapper.
Gamer Dad: Premier Blackout Cellular Shades
Premier Blackout Cellular Shades block out the brightest sunrise and even the most annoying streetlight glare. Its soft, 100% polyester pleats block up to 99% of incoming light, and it even absorbs sound. Limit all distractions so Gamer Dad can keep leveling up. Bonus points: the cell construction traps unwanted heat and cold, insulating your windows and saving you money on monthly energy bills.
Hobbyist Dad: No-Tools Headrail Products
No tools. No holes. No hassles. Save Hobbyist Dad time with No-Tools Headrail products so that he can get back to doing what he loves, whether that’s grilling, reading or hiking. We have a variety of shades that offer this additional feature, from roller shades to dual shades.
Practical Dad: 1″ Refined Aluminum Mini Blinds
The Practical Dad seeks to get the job done in the most efficient way possible and for the best price. While we have the best prices around on window coverings, we’re going to suggest the 1″ Refined Aluminum Mini Blinds because of the low price for high performance of the sturdy, commercial-grade all-aluminum. It comes with a protective finish to prevent scratches and dust accumulation. Plus, he can choose from an assortment of fade-resistant colors, ranging from popular neutrals to trendy metallics.
Tech Dad: Automated Window Coverings
“If it can be automated, it will be automated” is the Tech Dad motto. Simply pair Alexa, Google, or Apple products for shade operation by voice control. If Automation is a little too advanced, there’s also remote-control motorization and motorized wands available for certain window coverings.
Hip Dad: Woven Solar Shades
Similar to Tech Dad, Hip Dad enjoys being up-to-date on the latest trends but cares a bit more of the environment. Woven Solar Shades are a newer product that’s the ultimate fusion of solar shades and woven wood shades. Its woven texture imitates a natural wood look, adding dimension to any room. Its material blocks UV rays and reflects light, which means it keeps the house cool and energy costs low. He’s doing his part to lessen the demand of fossil fuels – go dad!
