4 Best Blinds to Block the Light

Having a home full of sunshine is pleasant. But it can also make areas feel uncomfortable and interfere with activities, like watching TV.

Buying custom blinds is an economical way to have added control over light. When you work with an expert design consultant, like one from Louver Shop of Columbia, your home can look just like you envision it. We’ll support you from start to finish. From selecting styles and colors during your free consultation to professional installation.

Here are a few of the best blinds in Columbia to block the light.

Plantation Blinds

Plantation blinds have extra-wide strips, like plantation shutters. They’re a great way to have the appearance of shutters on a budget.

These blinds work best for small windows, since they’re generally controlled by cords. If you want a corded system, ask your consultant about de-Light™. This feature minimizes gaps and seams where light can come through.

Need to use plantation blinds on big windows? Moving them is effortless with PowerView®. This cutting-edge upgrade lifts, drops, opens and closes your blinds with a swipe of your smartphone.

Plantation blinds can be ordered in authentic wood or faux wood, as well as a wide variety of colors and finishes. Faux wood is a good selection for rooms with high humidity or moisture, like a kitchen, bathroom or laundry room.

Plantation Shutters

When you envision blinds, you may not instantly think about plantation shutters. But shutters provide a nearly identical look—with excellent light control and exceptional energy savings. They can be used on windows of all shapes around your residence and are easy to close utilizing a tilt bar.

At Louver Shop of Columbia, we custom make all our shutters in the USA to provide a tight fit with your unique windows. Not only does an outstanding fit make your shutters look fantastic, it also helps optimize light management and energy efficiency.

We have a range of louver sizes, materials and colors so you can design the right shutters for your house in Columbia.

Panel Track Blinds

For new homes, there are panel track blinds.

With a range of opacities to select from, you can manage how much light your blinds will filter while drawn. With upwards of 600 colors and patterns to choose from, you’re sure to find a style that will work with your rooms.

While these blinds are designed for bigger windows, they can be used to make an impact on smaller ones as well. Whichever size window you use them on, the panels fit neatly together when moved to introduce more light.

Vertical Blinds

For traditional Columbia residences with tall windows, consider vertical blinds. Modern day models are nowhere near the white aluminum vanes you could connect with this window treatment.

Cadence® soft vertical blinds come with curved vanes that resemble drapes. But these vanes don’t merely look fantastic. They absorb more outdoor sounds so you can revel in your space in silence. And an innovative headrail keeps them together to reduce light seeping through.

Like other Hunter Douglas solutions, these blinds come in a wide selection of modern colors and textures.
