Although our windows are great places to enjoy the splendor of nature, lots of homeowners aren’t content with just staring at the scenery. Alternatively, they lend a sense of restoration and serenity into their homes by introducing houseplants to make their important places become even more special. An indoor garden is a great idea, but plants won’t always look their best without care. They need the right amount of sunlight as well as a stable range of temperatures to continue growing.
Such requirements can clash with keeping homes secluded and energy efficient. Thankfully, the right window treatments strike the right compromise between sunlight, heat and energy efficiency. If you’d like professional help comparing all the options, look into a free virtual or in-home consultation. Your local Louver Shop design consultant will be glad to help you browse color, fabric types and other key details.
Sheer Shades Draw Natural Light Indoors
Sunlight is food for houseplants, so you want plenty of it if you want the plants to thrive. This need for a steady source of light can complicate enjoying a feeling of privacy. Sheer shades address this problem by letting light in while keeping prying eyes out. Choose from assorted fabric opacities to match your privacy concerns with the requirements of your houseplants.
Nantucket Window Shadings are an ideal example. These form-focused shades convert bright sunlight into a cozy glow perfect for drawing out the natural beauty of your plants. They recede behind the headrail when raised, making them an excellent option for homeowners who favor a plant on full display. And when you require a bit of privacy, floating vanes and sheer fabric make sure you can keep a space bright and beautiful.
Honeycomb Shades Insulate Against Withering Heat
Even houseplants can suffer from too much of a good thing. Most plants won't withstand cold, but excessive heat can kill leaves and leave the plant seeming wilted. This can transform hot summers into a battlefield as you try and keep plants warm without scorching them in the afternoon sun. A dependable set of honeycomb shades is a formidable tool in your arsenal.
Duette® Honeycomb Shades possess insulating pockets of air that can prevent scorching heat from harming your houseplants. You can consider single, double or triple-cell construction to identify the ideal design. Honeycomb shades are offered in lots of sheer fabric types, ensuring your houseplants experience all the benefits of sunlight with fewer downsides.
Plantation Shutters Endure Humid Conditions
Shades are great for a mellow, cozy look, but what about styles with a tad more structure? Plantation shutters establish a regal sense that would look right at home in an upscale greenhouse or home conservatory. Just tilt the louvers to your favored position to admit light in without compromising privacy. You can double down on natural materials with hardwood shutters or try out an energy-efficient alternative.
LouverWood® Plantation Shutters blend the resilience of hardwood with the energy-efficient insulation of dense PVC. With up to three times the insulation, you can showcase multiple plants nearby without turning the space into a magnet for humidity or pests. Your LouverWood shutters will continue looking stunning as they survive heat, moisture and the test of time.
