Too Much Summer Heat in Charlotte? Try These Window Treatments to Stay Cool

While summer is the season to enjoy the outdoors, scorching temperatures can drive lots of people back in their homes. But sometimes extreme heat can pursue you indoors via your windows, forcing you to close the curtains or withdraw to a cooler room. Why should summer heat choose where and when you can appreciate the comfort of your own home?

Rather than sacrificing natural light or scenic views, see about new window treatments. Lots of options incorporate light-filtering or insulating qualities that could reduce the amount of heat moving through your windows. These custom window treatments are as eye-catching as they are practical. If you prefer to better control sunlight, heat, humidity and other problems, why not ask for a free in-home or virtual consultation? A local design consultant can recommend breathtaking treatments that block sunlight heat from windows.

Roman Shades Disperse Harsh Sunlight

Roman shades are increasingly preferred because they provide attractive designs while being easy to clean and maintain. These pleated window treatments fold neatly when raised and convey a clean, appealing look when down. These controls can even be motorized for ultimate convenience. New custom Roman shades offer privacy and light control.

And if you favor higher energy efficiency, Solera® Soft Shades merge the appearance of Roman shades with the insulating cells of honeycomb shades. Pick from a broad selection of colors and fabric opacities to ensure you dictate how much light and heat enter the room. These pockets of air protect against heat and sunlight, helping you cut your energy use.

Honeycomb Shades Insulate Against Heat

When insulation is your number one priority, full honeycomb shades are a fantastic choice. These shades are supplied in single-, double- and triple-cell varieties, presenting more options depending on your home’s needs. Some are also made with several layers of fabric for an even greater layer of protection. You won't have to worry about covering the window entirely, because translucent fabrics provide a warm glow as sunlight is drawn into the room.

Duette® Honeycomb Shades are the most energy-efficient honeycomb shades available. You can pick between two styles, different layers of fabric and different pleat sizes for a truly personal final product. You can even include blackout or light diffusion for full control over sunlight heat.

Plantation Shutters Resist Heat, Humidity and Fading
