SELECTING YOUR SUMMER-INSPIRED WINDOW TREATMENTS
It’s summertime and for us down in Miami that means HOT and HUMID most days of the week. For all of our DIYers around dealing with the summer heat, we have a few tips and inspo for some summer inspired shades. Enjoy the blog and stay cool my friends!
The best window treatments for summer will allow you to let light in your home when you want it, while reducing glare and heat during the warmest parts of the day. Our goal at DIY Blinds is to be effective and stylish. We offer durable materials and a whole array of colors to match, blend and perfectly fit into your room. If you prefer classic Roller shades or the latest in Zebra shades the options listed here will help you save energy, protect your safety and privacy and ensure you stay cool.
But wait! Will they still be a good fit for the winter time? Great Question!
These selections will also help during the colder seasons of the year, providing the protection you need to keep the chill away. Now let’s get started!
Use Blackout Shades for 100% Light Blockage
Do you wish to block sunlight up to 100%? You should go for the high-quality blackout fabrics, which fully block the light and heat of blazing sunshine. While most shades will help reduce heat from direct sunlight, blackout fabrics will block 100% of the light through the fabric and are generally thicker and better for insulation.
Our custom DIY Blinds Blackout shades are built for all light blockage needs at a price you can afford.
Colors Matter! Choose Lighter Shades of Colors That Keep Your Room Cool.
Energize your room with fresh energy with modern window treatment ideas for your living room. Vibrant designs and free-flowing fabrics make customized shades and one of the best window coverings to keep heat out. Depending on fabric weight and color, lighter colors can reduce solar heat gain if left closed during hot months.
How about ROLLER SHADES?!
Roller shades are summer-friendly and come in several different types of materials. As their name suggests, they roll down from the top of your window to provide the right balance of natural light and privacy. Like the other selections on this list, they will effectively reduce glare and heat. They are also easy to use. Whether you need to sleep during the day or want to enjoy a nap after a trip to the pool or beach, they will also efficiently block out the sun. You and your family may choose from a variety of colors, including trendy white, off-white and grey. You can even select from woven fabrics, sheers & translucents. Choose these custom DIY Roller Shades to compliment your home or office’s sleek, modern and unique look.
**Request Inside Mount** We have simplified the process for all DIYers! With our inside mount, mount directly inside the window frame and customize your various levels of transparency and opaqueness. Many homeowners choose these options for their windows because they have a more streamlined, modern aesthetic. Block unwanted UV rays, but still filter in a lot of natural light. If you are looking for versatility that filters a lot of natural light, these really are a great window treatment option.
FAUX WOOD BLINDS
If you are looking for a more affordable summertime treatment with the same look as authentic wood blinds, consider a faux style. Faux wood coverings are made from composite wood, PVC or vinyl. If you are interested in a richer look we recommend our Cordless Faux Wood Blinds. While faux wood blinds are a trendy way to keep out light and heat, they are also an excellent style for rooms with increased moisture. Bathrooms, kitchens and humid living spaces will benefit from these blinds that resist both moisture and swelling.
Zebra shades are so-named for their unique, alternating sheer and light-filtering materials. Dual panels moving to your desired combination of natural light and effective room darkening, consider this style. Each shade provides several degrees of light adjustment. Align the sheer or opaque sections to provide the right level of light, (also available in blackouts). Choose from beautiful colors for a relaxing summer ambiance. Whether you prefer inside mount or outside mount, a variety of sizes are available to you.
Motorize Your Blinds
We strive to be ahead of the game. That’s why you can select the ability to motorize some of your DIY Blinds. The motor comes with a state-of-the-art motorized option, allowing you to raise or lower your shades with the push of a button. Powered by a remote or an app. You can also upgrade to a multi-channel remote to control all of your shades at the same time. Instant cooling I’d say!
Hope this finds you some inspiration to act before summer gets a little too hot! The beautiful thing is, if you do not know where to start, start with us. We are here to help you through the entire process and inspire you to make some simple changes at a cost effective solution. Start simple, start easy, start with diyeasyblinds.com enjoy!
