Before you make a decision, you may want to learn a little more about the drapes. Here are a few facts about energy saving drapes that may help you make your decision.
One of the main concerns is that energy saving drapes will look outdated or ugly.

The odds are that you will be able to find several styles you like, with all the styles being available in both patterns and solids.
Perhaps one reason people tend to wonder about the esthetics of energy saving drapes is they have a vision of the foam-lined draperies that were popular in the middle twentieth century.

But today's energy saving drapes do not have to rely on the foam backing that would yellow and peel as time went on. Various fabric blends and even the dyes used in the drapery fabric help to perform the same function today, without the need for your window dressing to look heavy.
