How does fabric color affect the shade?

Both view-through and heat control are affected by the color of the shade.

Darker colors absorb light and are therefore not as good for heat control. However, they are better at glare control and as a result provide better view-through. Conversely, lighter colors reflect light and are therefore more energy efficient, but not as effective at controlling glare, resulting in decreased view-through.
