The ideal window treatments can make your house more beautiful, more comfortable and even more energy efficient. Keeping heat out during high temperatures is a concern we often get questioned about, since it affects your comfort and your cooling bills.
Blinds are a good way to keep temperatures managed and your home looking beautiful. They also fit a wide range of budgets and can be highly personalized, including with smart operating systems. With your vision and our expertise, Louver Shop of Columbia can help you create custom blinds that complement your home and your needs during your free, in-home consultation.
Learn more about our designers’ three most loved choices for the best blinds to keep the heat out.
1. Horizontal Blinds
If you enjoy 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 luxuriously sized slats that deliver great temperature and light control.
If heat and humidity are a continued issue, we recommend faux wood blinds. These blinds are made from a proprietary polymer that looks like wood but can weather hot temperatures without yellowing or warping.
Choose from on-trend 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 adjust 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 house. Fabric panel track blinds are a modern alternative that can stylishly stop bright sunlight.
Instead of having hanging slats covered within a headrail, these wide panels are attached on tracks above and below your window. They are a good fit on nearly any window style but are particularly striking on sliding glass doors and floor-to-ceiling windows.
With more than 600 fabrics to select from, you’ll be able to choose a color or patten that fits your home. As a bonus, our panel track window blinds can shield 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 trying to find a budget-friendly window treatment that will last for many years while deflecting warmth, look no further than our aluminum mini blinds. They’re easy on your wallet, easy to clean and their trendy finish complements just about any style of home.
Hide cord holes with the exclusive de-Light™ feature from Hunter Douglas and enjoy a darker, cooler room that’s shielded from up to 70% of UV rays. When the temperatures have gotten cooler, see twice as much of your beautiful surroundings with MagnaView®.
