Beat the Summer Heat with Window Treatments

Summer is the season of outdoor activities and air conditioning, it can also be the season of replacing the window coverings that provide better shading effect, like room darkening shades or blackout blinds.

But how to keep the heat at bay during the hot and sweaty summer months? Here are some simple, energy-saving ways to cool off and buffer your house from overheating.

  • Stay hydrated
  • Take a cold shower or bath
  • Install ceiling fans and energy-efficient light bulbs (LED light bulbs)
  • Eat something spicy or get some frozen treats
  • Most important of all, close your window coverings before the sun sets. Keep your home as cool as possible.

If you consider replacing your current window covering to get a better shading effect, don’t skip this page! Read on to know which option is the best for your home.

If You Need Natural Light in Your Room

GoDear Design's newly arrived light filtering blinds Twist Roll, with its nature-inspired design and high-density weave, reduces the glare and incoming heat without compromising your privacy. This summer, swap out your dated curtains and drapes with these sliding panel shades for a breezier look and feel. Lighter shades can reflect heat and light away from your room.

If You Need Both Solar Shield and The View

Solar shade fabric is used to be designed as solar roller shades which is known for their UV-blocking and budget-friendly features. However, they are still not a perfect solution for those large windows or spaces. This is the reason why we turned these kinds of fabric into cordless vertical blinds. Our solar blinds Chic, with 5% openness and excellent glare reduction, can block sun’s heat and deliver a higher level of privacy while still allowing for less view through.

If You Want to Darken Your Room

Room darkening blinds reduce the amount of light entering the room, making it darker but not pitch-dark as blackout shades, and improving energy efficiency in any of your spaces. Munich Castle is one of our straight-A kids all year round.

If You Want to Make a Pitch-Black Room

Blackout Blinds is the perfect solution for the west-facing windows. Our blackout sliding panels with thermal backing are an innovative solution to block out 99.99% of outside lighting and retain cool in summer. If you are seeking blackout window blinds, try Airo +!

Vertical panel blinds are a useful window treatment for large spaces such as patio doors, balcony door, and large windows. If you haven't tried any of our cordless blinds which adapt themselves to a wide variety of home decorating styles, the above mentioned versatile yet decorative blinds will be the good options for this summer.
