The Best Way To Black Out Your Windows In Miami

Mass-produced window coverings advertise complete light control, allowing for insulation, privacy, and of course, darkness. However, they won’t match your windows as sunlight sneaks in around the edges. Alternatively, install customized 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 Polywood shutters insulate windows.

Custom Roller Shades Block Exterior Light

If your goal is to black out windows in Miami for optimal privacy and darkness, install made-to-order room-darkening roller shades. These window treatments can be made with a thick material with an opaque color or pattern to keep the sun’s rays from entering.  If you get a custom-crafted treatment, your Sunburst rep will record your exact window dimensions and ensure the new treatments fit perfectly within your window frame so that there is little to no gapping. When you pull down your shades, 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 perfect fit are helpful in blocking out heat gain and cold patched. You will appreciate feeling a bit toastier in winter and more comfortable during hotter months with your light-inhibiting shades, and you could see money savings on energy costs.

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 heavy roller shade, you get a product that is both effective and stylish. Blackout roller shades are an attractive means to prevent natural light 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 want to upgrade thier window treatments in Miami for better energy efficiency. Preventing warm sunlight and cold drafts that enters at your windows keeps your house at the right temperature and energy bills low. Blackout blinds and window shades composed of thick materials can help you do this, but Polywood® shutters typically work better. They are constructed with weatherstripping around all edges that offers better insulation than most other options. When closing your sturdy interior shutters, this proven insulation ability keeps out summer’s heat and winter’s cold. Your HVAC system won’t have to work as hard, while your home stays a comfortable temperature without a high utility bill.

Interior shutters can also be used to block light. They aren’t easy to bump out of askew like other, more lightweight materials because they’re made of a hard material. The shutter panels are custom-made for a precision fit within your window. They leave minimal gaps at the bottom or sides for light to sneak through like you often have with off-the-shelf products. The smartly designed louvers are even made to lay close against one another and let in only the slightest glow of outside light when you close them.
