Too Much Summer Heat? Try These Window Treatments to Stay Cool

While summer is the time of year to enjoy the outdoors, scorching temperatures can send lots of people back inside their homes. But occasionally excessive heat can follow you indoors through your windows, forcing you to close the curtains or withdraw to a cooler room. Why can summer heat define where and when you can enjoy the comfort of your own home?

Rather than depriving yourself of natural light or scenic views, try new window treatments. Lots of options incorporate light-filtering or insulating capabilities that will decrease the amount of heat entering through your windows. These custom window treatments are as striking as they are practical. If you prefer to better manage sunlight, heat, humidity and other problems, why not schedule a free in-home or virtual consultation? A local design professional can propose dazzling treatments that block sunlight heat from windows.

Roman Shades Scatter Harsh Sunlight

Roman shades are increasingly popular because they offer attractive designs while being easy to clean and maintain. These pleated window treatments retract snugly when raised and deliver a clean, appealing look when covering the window. These controls can even be motorized for complete convenience. New custom Roman shades offer privacy and light control.

And if you prefer higher energy efficiency, Solera® Soft Shades blend the appearance of Roman shades with the insulating cells of honeycomb shades. Pick from a wide range of colors and fabric opacities to ensure you control how much light and heat enter the room. These pockets of air protect against heat and sunlight, helping you lower your energy use.

Honeycomb Shades Insulate Against Heat

When insulation is the top priority, full honeycomb shades are a convenient option. These shades are offered in single-, double- and triple-cell varieties, providing more options depending on your home’s needs. Some are also produced with several layers of fabric for an even more effective layer of protection. You won't have to worry about blocking the window entirely, because translucent fabrics provide a warm glow as sunlight is scattered into the room.

Duette® Honeycomb Shades are the most energy-efficient honeycomb shades available. You can choose between two styles, various layers of fabric and assorted pleat sizes for a truly personalized final product. You can even add blackout or light diffusion for a high degree of control over sunlight heat.
