3 Best Blinds to Keep Heat Out

The right window treatments can make your residence more gorgeous, comfier and even more energy efficient. Keeping heat out during high temperatures is a concern we often get asked about, as it influences your comfort and your cooling bills.

Blinds are a good way to keep temperatures under control and your house looking gorgeous. They also fit a wide range of budgets and can be highly individualized, including with smart operating systems. With your vision and our expertise, Louver Shop of Memphis can help you design custom blinds that highlight your style and your needs during your free, in-home consultation.

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

1. Horizontal Blinds

If you enjoy the style of plantation shutters but are on a smaller budget, horizontal blinds are an excellent substitute. Frequently called plantation blinds, these window treatments have luxuriously sized slats that give excellent temperature and light control.

If heat and humidity are a continued issue, we recommend faux wood blinds. These blinds are made from an exclusive polymer that looks like wood but can weather high temperatures without yellowing or warping.

Choose from on-trend solid colors or lifelike wood grain finishes. Then, add your favorite operating system to make moving your blinds even faster. With PowerView®, you’ll be able to raise and lower your blinds with only a tap of your phone.

2. Panel Track Blinds

You may believe that vertical blinds are outdated or not a good match for your residence. Fabric panel track blinds are a contemporary solution that can stylishly stop strong sunlight.

In lieu having hanging slats hidden within a headrail, these wide panels are placed on tracks above and below your window. They are a good fit on the majority of window styles but are especially distinctive on sliding glass doors and floor-to-ceiling windows.

With more than 600 fabrics to choose from, you’ll be able to choose 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 dangerous 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 trying to find a reasonably priced window treatment that will last for a long time while deflecting warmth, look no further than our aluminum mini blinds. They’re affordable, easy to clean and their stylish finish matches most any style of home.

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