Block High Temperatures with These 3 Custom Window Treatments in Memphis

As your cooling bills go up due to hot weather, you might be wondering how you can lower your house’s energy expenses. Upgrading your window treatments is one approach you can keep your loved ones cozier all through hot weather.

Window treatments don’t only make your rooms look modern. They can also lower energy loss throughout the year at your windows. About 76% of sunlight that falls on double-pane windows in the summer is transformed into heat, according to the U.S. Department of Energy. In the winter, the DOE says your windows can lose about 30% of your heating.

The optimal window treatment can retain more of your air conditioning (and warmth) where it should be—in your home. Because there’s many possibilities available, hiring a local window treatment expert from Louver Shop of Memphis is a wise place to begin.

Our pros are members of your community, so they know the climate and type of weather you have. That gives them the unique advantage of helping you locate the best option for your residence during a free consultation.

In the meantime, here are our recommendations for the top window treatments in Memphis for blocking humidity.

Plantation Shutters

Plantation shutters are a great way to deflect summertime warmth and might even reduce your energy bills. For the best energy efficiency, we suggest our LouverWood™ plantation shutters.

These premium faux wood plantation shutters are made from a solid polymer. This maintenance-free material insulates up to three times better than wood. And it can endure high temperatures and humidity without warping or blistering.

We make it simple to customize your LouverWood shutters. You select the color, louver size and frame style when we meet for our free consultation. Then we’ll handle it from there with custom assembly and experienced installation.

We produce all our plantation shutters here in the United States, so you’ll get them much more quickly. And we guarantee they’ll remain gorgeous for many years.

Honeycomb Shades


Our honeycomb shades are among the most energy-efficient shades, particularly for large windows. These shades are made with insulating compartments that retain air to reduce heat from your windows. As a result, you may learn your house keeps more comfortable despite a higher thermostat setting.

These cellular shades can be customized in single-, double- and triple-cell models. The more cells you choose, the greater the energy efficiency you’ll receive.

Duette® honeycomb shades are the most energy-efficient honeycomb shades you can get. They’re made with six layers of fabric and five insulating air pockets. And with the LightLock™ system, you can absorb or block virtually all incoming warm sunlight.

When you partner with Louver Shop of Memphis, you’ll have access to the biggest selection of fabric colors and patterns for your custom shades. Ask your designer for more information about upgrading your shades with PowerView® automation. This smart home technology gives you the ability to move or schedule your window coverings with an app on your web-enabled device.

Horizontal Blinds


Horizontal blinds are an economical way to [[stop|keep out|block summertime heat. One of our most desired styles, EverWood® horizontal blinds, gives your home the style of plantation shutters at a reasonable price.

These faux wood blinds are manufactured from polymer, an energy-efficient material that weathers strong sunlight, hot temperatures and high humidity. Polymer also stops distortion, losing color and staining better than genuine wood blinds.

EverWood blinds are available in many natural-looking wood finishes, from white to dark brown TruGrain®. They can also be upgraded with de-Light™ to block more daylight and PowerView to make enjoying them simpler than ever.
