The right window treatments can make your residence more gorgeous, cooler and even more energy efficient. Blocking heat during high temperatures is a concern we regularly get questioned about, because it affects your comfort and your electricity bills.
Blinds are a fantastic way to keep temperatures in check and your house looking good. They also fit a differing range of budgets and can be highly personalized, including with smart operating systems. With your vision and our expertise, Louver Shop of Louisville can help you create custom blinds that complement your style 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 love the appearance of plantation shutters but are on a smaller budget, horizontal blinds are a good alternative. Frequently called plantation blinds, these window treatments have oversized slats that provide outstanding temperature and light control.
If heat and humidity are a continued issue, we advise faux wood blinds. These blinds are made from a proprietary polymer that looks like wood but can withstand extreme temperatures without yellowing or warping.
Choose from trendy solid colors or lifelike wood grain finishes. Then, select your favorite operating system to make using your blinds even easier. With PowerView®, you’ll be able to raise and lower your blinds with only a tap of your phone.
2. Panel Track Blinds
You could be thinking that vertical blinds are dated or not a good fit for your home. Fabric panel track blinds are a contemporary option that can stylishly block warm sunlight.
In place of having hanging slats concealed within a headrail, these wide panels are placed on tracks above and below your window. They work well on most window styles but are especially distinctive on sliding glass doors and floor-to-ceiling windows.
With more than 600 fabrics to pick from, you’ll be able to settle on a color or patten that complements your décor. Plus, our panel track window blinds can defend your home and belongings from up to 70% of harmful ultraviolet light.
If you have young children or pets, choose from a cord-free wand or PowerView® operating system to make your panel track blinds even safer.
3. Mini Blinds
If you’re looking for a economical window treatment that will last for a long time while blocking heat, look no further than our aluminum mini blinds. They’re easy on your wallet, easy to clean and their trendy finish matches most any kind of home.
Conceal cord holes with the exclusive de-Light™ feature from Hunter Douglas and get a darker, cooler area that’s protected from up to 70% of UV rays. When the weather has gotten cooler, see twice as much of your beautiful surroundings with MagnaView®.
