While our windows are the best places to experience the beauty of nature, many homeowners aren’t satisfied with just looking at the scenery. In fact, they incorporate a sense of rejuvenation and tranquility into their homes by including houseplants to make personally important places become even more special. An indoor garden is a terrific idea, but plants won’t always do well without care. They require the correct amount of sunlight as well as a stable range of temperatures to carry on growing.
These requirements can conflict with keeping homes private and energy efficient. Luckily, the correct window treatments strike the right balance of sunlight, heat and energy efficiency. If you'd appreciate professional help comparing all the choices, look into a free virtual or in-home consultation. Your local Louver Shop design consultant would be delighted to help you discuss color, fabric materials and other key details.
Sheer Shades Draw Natural Light Indoors
Sunlight is vital for houseplants, so you need plenty of it if you want your plants to thrive. This need for a consistent amount of light can get in the way of enjoying a feeling of privacy. Sheer shades solve this problem by allowing light in while keeping prying eyes out. Pick from assorted fabric opacities to balance your privacy concerns with the needs of your houseplants.
Nantucket Window Shadings are an ideal example. These style-focused shades translate bright sunlight into a warm glow well suited for bringing out the natural beauty of your plants. They disappear behind the headrail when open, making them an excellent option for homeowners who prefer a plant on full display. And when you require a bit of privacy, floating vanes and sheer fabric ensure you can keep a space sunny and beautiful.
Honeycomb Shades Insulate Against Withering Heat
Even houseplants can struggle with having too much of a good thing. Most plants barely put up with cold, but excessive heat can kill leaves and leave the plant seeming wilted. This can transform hot summers into a battlefield as you attempt to keep plants warm without roasting them in the afternoon sun. A dependable set of honeycomb shades is an effective addition to your arsenal.
Duette® Honeycomb Shades offer insulating pockets of air that can keep scorching heat from ruining your houseplants. You can choose between single, double or triple-cell construction to determine the ideal design. Honeycomb shades are available in all sorts of sheer fabric types, ensuring your houseplants reap all the benefits of sunlight with fewer downsides.
Plantation Shutters Stand Up to Humid Conditions
Shades are great for a gentle, cozy look, but what about something with a bit more structure? Plantation shutters add a regal sense that would look right at home in an upscale greenhouse or home conservatory. Merely tilt the louvers to your favored position to admit light in without giving up privacy. You can double down on a natural look with hardwood shutters or try out an energy-efficient alternative.
LouverWood® Plantation Shutters bundle the strength of hardwood with the energy-efficient insulation of dense PVC. With up to three times the insulation, you can display several plants nearby without converting the space into a magnet for humidity or pests. Your LouverWood shutters will continue to look stunning as they resist heat, moisture and the test of time.
