The optimal window treatments can make your house more beautiful, cooler and even more energy efficient. Blocking heat during summer is a concern we often hear about, as it affects your comfort and your air conditioning bills.
Blinds are a fantastic way to keep temperatures in check and your house 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 Austin can help you design custom blinds that complement your home and your needs during your free, in-home consultation.
Find out about our designers’ three favorite options for the best blinds to keep the heat out.
1. Horizontal Blinds
If you enjoy the style of plantation shutters but are on a tighter budget, horizontal blinds are an excellent substitute. Often called plantation blinds, these window treatments have oversized slats that give outstanding temperature and light control.
If heat and humidity are an ongoing problem, we suggest faux wood blinds. These blinds are manufactured from an exclusive polymer that looks like wood but can withstand extreme temperatures without yellowing or warping.
Choose from on-trend solid colors or realistic wood grain finishes. Then, add your favorite operating system to make moving your blinds even simpler. With PowerView®, you’ll be able to adjust your blinds with just a tap of your phone.
2. Panel Track Blinds
You could believe that vertical blinds are outdated or not a good match for your house. Fabric panel track blinds are a contemporary option that can stylishly stop bright sunlight.
In lieu having hanging slats hidden within a headrail, these wide panels are installed on tracks above and below your window. They are a good fit on nearly any window style but are especially stunning on sliding glass doors and floor-to-ceiling windows.
With more than 600 fabrics to pick from, you’ll be able to find a color or patten that fits your style. Even better, our panel track window blinds can protect your house and flooring from up to 70% of damaging 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 heat, look no further than our aluminum mini blinds. They’re budget friendly, fast to clean and their stylish finish complements most any kind of home.
Cover cord holes with the exclusive de-Light™ feature from Hunter Douglas and have 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 beautiful surroundings with MagnaView®.
