The Best Custom Window Treatments to Block Sun and Heat

Updated: Oct 27, 2021

Curtains were first invented out of necessity rather than for fashion or pulling a room together. The first curtains were made out of animal hides and used primarily to keep rooms warm before central heating was created. We’ve certainly come a long way from hanging animal hides on hooks.

Today, there are thousands of options when it comes to window treatments. From draperies to blinds, shades, and shutters, windows have endless style options. Having the right window treatments can really transform a space and take it from good to great. We’ve rounded up some common problems that can be easily fixed by using the right window treatment.

Too much sun

When it comes to filtering out sunshine and heat, certain window coverings are more effective than others. Do you have a bright bedroom and want to sleep in late? Or, is your living room furniture beginning to fade as a result of direct sunlight? If that's the case, you'll need some strong room-darkening shades to totally block out the sun. If you're looking for the best window treatment to prevent light and heat in the summer, we offer many alternatives.

Blinds are perhaps the most traditional window treatment. Unlike translucent fabric shades, blinds are an excellent window solution for allowing sunlight in when desired and totally concealing it when it's time to watch a movie or get some shut-eye. They are ideal for bedrooms if you want to block out the light in the morning. They're also ideal for use in living rooms and workplaces to block out sunlight during the day. Faux wood blinds are also available as an eco-friendly room-darkening alternative.

Solar shades:

Solar shades are an excellent choice for any area that receives a lot of sunshine. They are constructed of a unique material that is designed to block both sunlight and UV radiation. Because they block so much heat, they can help you save money on your energy costs as well as reduce glare on your TV or computer screens. They are also available in a variety of darkening and light filtering choices. That means you may keep your room completely dark or allow some natural light in while still preventing your furnishings from fading.
