3 Best Blinds to Keep Heat Out

The optimal window treatments can make your home more gorgeous, cooler and even more energy efficient. Stopping heat during summer is a concern we regularly hear about, as it impacts your comfort and your electricity bills.

Blinds are a fantastic way to keep temperatures managed and your home looking beautiful. They also accommodate a differing range of budgets and can be highly individualized, including with smart operating systems. With your vision and our expertise, Louver Shop of Colorado can help you make custom blinds that complement your décor and your needs during your free, in-home consultation.

Learn more about our designers’ three top choices for the best blinds to keep the heat out.

1. Horizontal Blinds

If you are looking for the appearance of plantation shutters but are on a smaller budget, horizontal blinds are a good substitute. Often called plantation blinds, these window treatments have luxuriously sized slats that give outstanding temperature and light control.

If heat and humidity are a continued issue, we recommend faux wood blinds. These blinds are manufactured from a special polymer that looks like wood but can withstand hot temperatures without yellowing or warping.

Choose from trendy solid colors or natural wood grain finishes. Then, add your favorite operating system to make using your blinds even faster. With PowerView®, you’ll be able to adjust your blinds with merely a tap of your phone.

2. Panel Track Blinds

You might think that vertical blinds are dated or not right for your house. Fabric panel track blinds are a contemporary option that can stylishly block bright sunlight.

Instead of having hanging slats covered within a headrail, these wide panels are installed on tracks above and below your window. They are a good match on most window styles but are particularly eye-catching on sliding glass doors and floor-to-ceiling windows.

With more than 600 fabrics to choose from, you’ll be able to find a color or patten that fits your décor. Plus, our panel track window blinds can protect your residence and furniture from up to 70% of damaging 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 looking for a budget-friendly window treatment that will last for a long time while deflecting warmth, look no further than our aluminum mini blinds. They’re affordable, fast to clean and their stylish finish fits just about any kind of home.

Conceal cord holes with the exclusive de-Light™ feature from Hunter Douglas and get a darker, cooler room that’s shielded from up to 70% of UV rays. When the temperatures have cooled down, see twice as much of your beautiful surroundings with MagnaView®.
