The ideal window treatments can make your residence more attractive, more comfortable and even more energy efficient. Blocking heat during summer is a concern we regularly get questioned about, since it impacts your comfort and your cooling bills.
Blinds are a good way to keep temperatures managed and your house looking good. They also accommodate a varying range of budgets and can be highly customized, including with smart operating systems. With your vision and our expertise, Louver Shop of Charlotte can help you design custom blinds that highlight your style and your needs during your free, in-home consultation.
Learn more about our designers’ three top options for the best blinds to keep the heat out.
1. Horizontal Blinds
If you are looking for the appearance of plantation shutters but are on a tighter budget, horizontal blinds are a good second choice. Often called plantation blinds, these window treatments have generously sized slats that deliver excellent temperature and light control.
If heat and humidity are a continuing worry, we advise faux wood blinds. These blinds are crafted from a special polymer that looks like wood but can withstand hot temperatures without yellowing or warping.
Choose from on-trend solid colors or natural wood grain finishes. Then, add your favorite operating system to make moving your blinds even easier. With PowerView®, you’ll be able to open and close your blinds with just a tap of your phone.
2. Panel Track Blinds
You might be thinking that vertical blinds are dated or not right for your house. Fabric panel track blinds are a modern option that can stylishly block warm sunlight.
Instead of having hanging slats concealed within a headrail, these wide panels are installed on tracks above and below your window. They work well on most window styles but are very distinctive on sliding glass doors and floor-to-ceiling windows.
With more than 600 fabrics to select from, you’ll be able to find a color or patten that complements your style. Plus, our panel track window blinds can shield your home and belongings from up to 70% of damaging ultraviolet light.
If you have young children or pets, select a cord-free wand or PowerView® operating system to make your panel track blinds even safer.
3. Mini Blinds
If you’re seeking a economical window treatment that will last for many years while blocking heat, look no further than our aluminum mini blinds. They’re easy on your wallet, simple to clean and their stylish finish complements just about any kind of home.
Hide cord holes with the exclusive de-Light™ feature from Hunter Douglas and have a darker, cooler space that’s defended from up to 70% of UV rays. When the day has gotten cooler, see twice as much of your beautiful surroundings with MagnaView®.
