The optimal window treatments can make your home more attractive, comfier and even more energy efficient. Blocking heat during summer is a concern we regularly get asked about, as it influences your comfort and your air conditioning costs.
Blinds are a fantastic way to keep temperatures in check and your residence looking gorgeous. They also accommodate a differing range of budgets and can be highly individualized, including with smart operating systems. With your vision and our expertise, Louver Shop of Philadelphia can help you make custom blinds that complement your home and your needs during your free, in-home consultation.
Discover our designers’ three most loved options for the best blinds to keep the heat out.
1. Horizontal Blinds
If you are looking for the look of plantation shutters but are on a lower budget, horizontal blinds are an excellent second choice. Frequently called plantation blinds, these window treatments have luxuriously sized slats that give outstanding temperature and light control.
If heat and humidity are a continued problem, we suggest faux wood blinds. These blinds are crafted from a proprietary polymer that looks like wood but can weather hot temperatures without yellowing or warping.
Choose from trendy solid colors or realistic wood grain finishes. Then, choose your favorite operating system to make enjoying your blinds even faster. With PowerView®, you’ll be able to open and close your blinds with merely a tap of your phone.
2. Panel Track Blinds
You may believe that vertical blinds are outdated or not right for your house. Fabric panel track blinds are a contemporary alternative that can stylishly stop strong sunlight.
In lieu having hanging slats hidden within a headrail, these wide panels are attached on tracks above and below your window. They are a good match on nearly any window style but are particularly stunning on sliding glass doors and floor-to-ceiling windows.
With more than 600 fabrics to pick from, you’ll be able to choose a color or patten that works with your home. As a bonus, our panel track window blinds can protect your house and flooring from up to 70% of harmful 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 budget-friendly window treatment that will last for a long time while blocking warmth, look no further than our aluminum mini blinds. They’re budget friendly, simple to clean and their trendy finish complements most any style of home.
Hide cord holes with the exclusive de-Light™ feature from Hunter Douglas and enjoy a darker, cooler room that’s protected from up to 70% of UV rays. When the day has cooled off, see twice as much of your stunning surroundings with MagnaView®.
