3 Best Blinds to Keep Heat Out

The right window treatments can make your home more gorgeous, cooler and even more energy efficient. Blocking heat during warm weather is a concern we frequently get questioned about, because it affects your comfort and your cooling bills.

Blinds are a great way to keep temperatures in check and your house looking gorgeous. They also work with a wide range of budgets and can be highly personalized, including with smart operating systems. With your vision and our expertise, Louver Shop of Richmond can help you create custom blinds that fit your home and your needs during your free, in-home consultation.

Find out about our designers’ three favorite choices for the best blinds to keep the heat out.

1. Horizontal Blinds

If you love the style of plantation shutters but are on a tighter budget, horizontal blinds are a great substitute. Frequently called plantation blinds, these window treatments have oversized slats that give outstanding temperature and light control.

If heat and humidity are a continuing concern, we advise faux wood blinds. These blinds are crafted from a special polymer that looks like wood but can weather high temperatures without yellowing or warping.

Choose from fasionable solid colors or lifelike wood grain finishes. Then, add your favorite operating system to make enjoying your blinds even easier. 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 dated or not right for your home. Fabric panel track blinds are a modern alternative that can stylishly deflect strong sunlight.

In lieu having hanging slats concealed 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 especially distinctive on sliding glass doors and floor-to-ceiling windows.

With more than 600 fabrics to select from, you’ll be able to find a color or patten that works with your style. Plus, our panel track window blinds can protect your house and belongings from up to 70% of harmful ultraviolet light.

If you have young children or pets, go with a cord-free wand or PowerView® operating system to make your panel track blinds even safer.

3. Mini Blinds

If you’re seeking a budget-friendly window treatment that will last for years while stopping heat, look no further than our aluminum mini blinds. They’re affordable, fast to clean and their stylish finish matches nearly any kind of home.

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