The Best Window Treatments To Black Out Your Windows In Miami

June 16, 2021

Store-bought window coverings claim they block all light, and will make your room dark, cozy, and private. The problem is, they won’t match your windows as sunlight sneaks in at the sides. Instead, install custom roller shades or Polywood® shutters to black out windows in Miami. Custom-crafted roller shades can be thick enough and have no gaps to ensure darkness, while interior shutters provide superior insulation.

Custom Roller Shades Block Exterior Light

If you want to black out windows in Miami for optimal privacy and darkness, use custom roller shades. They can be made with a sturdy, non-transparent material with an opaque color or pattern to keep the sun’s rays from shining through them.  If you get a custom-crafted treatment, your window treatment rep will record your exact window dimensions and order shades that fit perfectly within your window frame so that there is little to no gapping. When you pull down your treatments, they will totally cover the window opening and won’t leave any space for sunlight to peek through.

Upgrading to customized room darkening roller shades also helps insulate your windows. A dark color and precision fit help block out the sun’s warmth and winter’s chilly drafts. You will appreciate feeling a bit toastier in during cold months and cooler during hotter months with your light-inhibiting shades, and you could see money savings on energy expenses.

Roller shades look good too. The phrase “blackout” doesn’t apply to the color of the shade. Blackout roller shades can be found in colors ranging from black to white in many attractive styles and patterns. With a thick roller shade, you get a product that is both effective and stylish. Blackout roller shades are an attractive means to keep out sunlight when an absence of light is required for bedtime, a movie, or to improve the comfort of a space.

Plantation Shutters Improve Your Home’s Efficiency

A majority of residents are interested in enhancing their window treatments in Miami to improve efficiency. Preventing UV rays and chilly drafts that enters at your windows is good for your home’s comfort and energy usage. Blackout blinds and window shades composed of thick materials can help you do this, but faux wood shutters are often more effective. They have patented weatherstripping on all sides that offers better insulation than most other options. When closing your sturdy interior shutters, this proven insulation ability wards off summer’s heat and winter’s cold. Your HVAC system won’t be overburdened, while your home stays a comfortable temperature without a high utility bill.

Polywood shutters can also be used to block light. They won’t bump out of askew like shades, drapes, and blinds as they are made using solid, sturdy materials. The shutter panels are custom-made for a precision fit within your window. They leave minimal gaps around the borders for sunshine to creep in like you get with store-bought blinds and window shades. The smartly designed louvers are even made to secure snugly against each other and let in only the slightest glow of outside light after they’re closed.
