The ideal window treatments can make your residence more attractive, cooler and even more energy efficient. Keeping heat out during high temperatures is a concern we often get asked about, since it influences your comfort and your electricity bills.
Blinds are a good way to keep temperatures under control and your house looking good. They also accommodate a differing range of budgets and can be highly customized, including with smart operating systems. With your vision and our expertise, Louver Shop of Greensboro can help you make custom blinds that fit your style and your needs during your free, in-home consultation.
Discover our designers’ three top choices for the best blinds to keep the heat out.
1. Horizontal Blinds
If you love the style of plantation shutters but are on a lower budget, horizontal blinds are a great second choice. Often called plantation blinds, these window treatments have oversized slats that give outstanding temperature and light control.
If heat and humidity are an ongoing issue, we suggest faux wood blinds. These blinds are made from a special polymer that looks like wood but can withstand hot temperatures without yellowing or warping.
Choose from trendy solid colors or natural wood grain finishes. Then, select your favorite operating system to make moving your blinds even faster. With PowerView®, you’ll be able to open and close your blinds with only a tap of your phone.
2. Panel Track Blinds
You may believe that vertical blinds are outdated or not a good match for your home. Fabric panel track blinds are a contemporary solution that can stylishly stop strong sunlight.
Instead of having hanging slats concealed within a headrail, these wide panels are placed on tracks above and below your window. They are a good match on nearly any window style but are especially eye-catching 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 works with your home. Even better, our panel track window blinds can defend your residence and furniture from up to 70% of dangerous 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 deflecting high temps, look no further than our aluminum mini blinds. They’re budget friendly, easy to clean and their stylish finish matches just about any style of home.
Hide cord holes with the exclusive de-Light™ feature from Hunter Douglas and enjoy a darker, cooler space that’s defended from up to 70% of UV rays. When the weather has gotten cooler, see twice as much of your stunning surroundings with MagnaView®.
