4 Best Blinds to Block the Light

Having a residence full of natural light is enjoyable. But it can also make rooms seem hotter and cause trouble with activities, like watching TV.

Adding custom blinds is an economical approach to have added control over natural light. When you collaborate with a pro design consultant, like one from Louver Shop of Pittsburgh, your residence can look just like you imagine it. We’ll support you from start to finish. From selecting styles and colors during your free consultation to professional installation.

Here are some of the best blinds in Pittsburgh to block the light.

Plantation Blinds

Plantation blinds have thick strips, like plantation shutters. They’re a smart way to get the look of shutters at an economical price.

These blinds fit for little windows, since they’re typically raised and lowered by cords. If you choose a corded system, ask your designer about de-Light™. This option decreases gaps and seams where sunshine can leak through.

Need to use plantation blinds on large windows? Moving them is simple with PowerView®. This smart system raises, puts down, opens and closes your blinds with a swipe of your smartphone.

Plantation blinds can be ordered in genuine wood or faux wood, as well as many colors and finishes. Faux wood is a good style for rooms with a lot of humidity or moisture, for instance a kitchen, bathroom or laundry room.

Plantation Shutters

When you visualize blinds, you may not immediately picture plantation shutters. But shutters offer a nearly identical appearance—with excellent natural light control and exceptional energy savings. They can be used on windows of all shapes around your home and are nearly effortless to close utilizing a tilt bar.

At Louver Shop of Pittsburgh, we custom manufacture all our shutters in the United States to provide a snug fit with your special windows. Not only does a good fit make your shutters look great, it also helps enhance light management and energy efficiency.

We have a selection of louver sizes, materials and stains so you can create the ideal shutters for your space in Pittsburgh.

Panel Track Blinds

For modern residences, there are panel track blinds.

With a variety of opacities to pick from, you can customize how much light your blinds will filter while shut. With over 600 colors and textures to select from, you’re sure to come across an option that will complement your rooms.

Although these blinds are designed for taller windows, they can be used to make a statement on smaller ones as well. Regardless of which size window you use them on, the panels gather tidily together when moved to allow in additional light.

Vertical Blinds

For classic Pittsburgh homes with wide windows, look at vertical blinds. Modern styles are anything but the white metallic vanes you could relate with this window treatment.

Cadence® soft vertical blinds have curved vanes that look like curtains. But these vanes don’t merely look fantastic. They stop more outdoor noise so you can enjoy your space in peace. And an innovative headrail keeps them together to reduce light leaking through.

Like other Hunter Douglas options, these blinds are available in a wide variety of stylish colors and patterns.
