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

While summer is the season to spend outdoors, sweltering temperatures can send lots of people back in their homes. But once in a while extreme heat can accompany you indoors by using your windows, forcing you to shut the curtains or hurry to a cooler room. Why can summer heat define where and when you can appreciate the comfort of your own home?

Instead of sacrificing natural light or scenic views, consider new window treatments. Numerous options come with light-filtering or insulating properties that can reduce the amount of heat coming through your windows. These custom window treatments are as striking as they are practical. If you prefer to better regulate sunlight, heat, humidity and other problems, why not schedule a free in-home or virtual consultation? A local design specialist can recommend breathtaking treatments that block sunlight heat from windows.

Roman Shades Disperse Harsh Sunlight

Roman shades are increasingly common because they provide attractive designs while being simple to clean and maintain. These pleated window treatments retract snugly when raised and deliver a clean, appealing look when down. These controls can even be motorized for complete convenience. New custom Roman shades give you privacy and light control.

And if you want higher energy efficiency, Solera® Soft Shades blend the appearance of Roman shades with the insulating cells of honeycomb shades. Select from a wide range of colors and fabric opacities to ensure you dictate how much light and heat get into the room. These pockets of air defend 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 great solution. These shades are supplied in single-, double- and triple-cell varieties, presenting more options depending on your home’s needs. Some are also manufactured with numerous layers of fabric for an even greater layer of protection. You don't need to worry about obstructing the window entirely, because translucent fabrics create a warm glow as sunlight is distributed into the room.

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

Plantation Shutters Stand Up To Heat, Humidity and Fading

But have you heard they’re also ideal for blocking sunlight and heat? With the correct material, plantation shutters can be the best possible solution to energy-efficiency issues.

Louverwood® Plantation Shutters are crafted using innovative cellular PVC that appears like natural hardwood but boasts much better insulation. Not only do these shutters look fantastic, but they’ll stay that way because of natural resistance to cracking, peeling and fading.
