Sunlight coming through a bedroom window can make it difficult for anyone to sleep soundly, especially if you work nights or have a baby who naps during the day. Sunlight can also make rooms warm and uncomfortable, requiring you to turn on your ceiling fan or run your AC unit more often to keep rooms cool. Air conditioning is blissful during the summer, but running it nonstop during a heat wave will have you cursing when you get your utility bill. Fortunately, the right use of blinds can help keep your house cool and your bills in check. So as much as most of us enjoy spending time in the summer sun, that doesn’t necessarily mean you want it around all the time (especially in Miami, FL, let me tell you!). This is especially true during the summer when the days are longer, the temperatures are higher, and the sun is that much brighter. Just a little change in shades can make a world of a difference, so let’s dive in!
Whether you’re trying to improve your bedroom, your kids room, or the new nursery for a better, more comfortable sleep or you simply want to block the amount of light coming in through your kitchen or living room windows, diyeasyblinds offers the perfect solutions. Here’s how you can choose the right ones to combat the sun this summer.
Know How You Want to Use Them
Before you decide on any particular blinds, it helps to know what you want to accomplish with them. Ask yourself how you want to use them. Are you a nurse who works the night shift and you want to completely eliminate light from your room so you can sleep during the day? Do you want to enhance the privacy in your home or office so no one can see inside, especially at night? If so, then consider blackout shades. If you’re simply trying to reduce the amount of light that gets into a room to cool it down and maintain a comfortable temperature then look no further than our Blackout shades.
Consider the Location of Your Rooms
When shopping for light-blocking window treatments, you’ll need to take into account the location of your rooms. Rooms facing to the east generally receive more sunlight and heat than those facing to the west. Consider which rooms in your home are most affected by the sun and choose window coverings to reduce its effects. We would recommend a perfect blend with our roller shades.
Learn the Benefits of Cordless Faux Wood
Cordless Faux Wood blinds can create a sleek and polished style in any room. Plus, they’re easy and convenient to operate. When the sun is too bright, you can easily adjust them without the hassle of using a cord or string. Cordless blinds and shades are highly recommended for homes in which there are pets and small children who could accidentally become tangled. This is ideal for windows that aren’t easily accessible, as well as for homeowners who simply enjoy the modern efficiency and style these types of window treatments offer.
Account for Durability and Maintenance
Window treatments are an investment and, when it comes to coverings versus the sun, it’s important that they be strong, tough, and long-lasting. Choose durable materials that can stand up to the sun’s heat and won’t fade easily with prolonged exposure. You should also select materials that don’t require a lot of upkeep and are easy to maintain so you get the most use out of them. Looking for minimal upkeep and long lasting durability? Look no further than our selection of Roller Shades. The perfect year around fit that will keep the house cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
