4 Best Blinds to Block the Light

Having a home full of sunlight is enjoyable. But it can also make spaces appear hotter and hinder with activities, like watching movies.

Getting custom blinds is a budget-friendly way to have added control over daylight. When you partner with a pro design consultant, like one from Louver Shop of Birmingham, your home can appear just like you envision it. We’ll be with you every step of the way. From picking styles and colors during your free consultation to professional installation.

Here are a few of the best blinds in Birmingham to block the light.

Plantation Blinds

Plantation blinds have wide strips, like plantation shutters. They’re a great way to have the style of shutters on a budget.

These blinds work best for smaller windows, since they’re generally raised and lowered by cords. If you want a corded system, ask your designer about de-Light™. This option decreases gaps and seams where sunlight can seep through.

Looking to use plantation blinds on big windows? Moving them is easy with PowerView®. This smart upgrade elevates, puts down, opens and closes your blinds with a swipe of your smartphone.

Plantation blinds can be customized in real wood or faux wood, as well as a wide variety of colors and finishes. Faux wood is an outstanding style for areas with a lot of humidity or moisture, such as a kitchen, bathroom or laundry room.

Plantation Shutters

When you envision blinds, you may not instantly think of plantation shutters. But shutters offer a comparable look—with superior sunlight control and exceptional energy savings. They can be added on windows of all shapes across your house and are easy to open utilizing a tilt bar.

At Louver Shop of Birmingham, we custom produce all our shutters in the U.S. to ensure a snug fit with your special windows. Not only does a great fit make your shutters look fantastic, it also helps optimize light management and energy efficiency.

We provide a selection of louver thicknesses, materials and stains so you can design the right shutters for your space in Birmingham.

Panel Track Blinds

For modern homes, there are panel track blinds.

With a range of opacities to choose from, you can customize how much light your blinds will soften while drawn. With more than 600 colors and textures to choose from, you’re sure to find an option that will work with your rooms.

Although these blinds are designed for wider windows, they can be used to stand out on smaller ones too. Whatever size window you use them on, the panels stack tidily together when moved to introduce additional light.

Vertical Blinds

For classic Birmingham residences with wide windows, consider vertical blinds. Up-to-date models are anything but the white metal vanes you may relate with this blind.

Cadence® soft vertical blinds have curved vanes that imitate curtains. But these vanes don’t just look fantastic. They stop more outdoor noise so you can revel in your space in peace. And a patented headrail keeps them together to limit light seeping through.

Like other Hunter Douglas solutions, these blinds come in a big array of popular colors and patterns.
