The ideal window treatments can make your house more beautiful, more comfortable and even more energy efficient. Keeping heat out during summer is a concern we regularly get questioned about, because it influences your comfort and your electricity costs.
Blinds are a good way to keep temperatures under control and your residence looking gorgeous. They also work with a varying range of budgets and can be highly customized, including with smart operating systems. With your vision and our expertise, Louver Shop of Tampa can help you make custom blinds that complement your style and your needs during your free, in-home consultation.
Discover our designers’ three top options for the best blinds to keep the heat out.
1. Horizontal Blinds
If you enjoy the appearance of plantation shutters but are on a lower budget, horizontal blinds are a great substitute. Regularly called plantation blinds, these window treatments have oversized slats that give excellent temperature and light control.
If heat and humidity are a continued problem, we advise faux wood blinds. These blinds are crafted from a proprietary polymer that looks like wood but can stand up to extreme temperatures without yellowing or warping.
Choose from trendy solid colors or realistic wood grain finishes. Then, select your favorite operating system to make using 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 might be thinking that vertical blinds are dated or not a good fit for your home. Fabric panel track blinds are a modern solution that can stylishly deflect warm sunlight.
In place of having hanging slats covered within a headrail, these wide panels are placed on tracks above and below your window. They are a good match on most window styles but are very distinctive 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 complements your décor. Plus, our panel track window blinds can protect your residence 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 seeking a reasonably priced window treatment that will last for years while deflecting high temps, look no further than our aluminum mini blinds. They’re easy on your wallet, simple to clean and their trendy finish matches most any kind of home.
Cover cord holes with the exclusive de-Light™ feature from Hunter Douglas and enjoy a darker, cooler room that’s defended from up to 70% of UV rays. When the day has cooled off, see twice as much of your stunning surroundings with MagnaView®.
