Our Favorite Summer Window Treatments

Summer is the perfect time to redo your window treatments. Not only is it fun to add a splash of summer to your d├ęcor, but some curtains and drapes are designed to let light in without all the heat. After all, your windows are meant to be used, not covered up. Here are a few of our favorite summer window treatments:

White Sheer Curtains

The great thing about the color white is that it reflects light. White sheer curtains help keep heat out of your house by doing just that – reflecting light and heat. The thin material also lets a good amount of natural light in, so you don’t have to turn heat-producing lamps on during the day.

Bamboo Blinds

There’s something about bamboo that just screams summer! Bamboo blinds have become increasingly popular, especially for use in rooms that get a lot of sunlight.  That’s because they let some light in while blocking up to 65 percent of heat.

Roman Shades

Roman shades are less fussy than curtains and warmer looking than blinds. More importantly, they provide privacy as well as protection from the sun. Roman shades are fabric window covering panels that are lined for energy-efficiency. They can be raised and lowered to let in as little or as much light as you’d like.

There are lots of window treatments that will help keep your home cooler this summer. We love these for their efficiency and style! Do you change up your windows’ look for summer? Share your thoughts at our Facebook page!
