Summer Window Coverings

Now that summer is just around the corner and you have finished the spring-cleaning, it is time to start redecorating your home. The best place to start is your windows! Not only do the type of window treatments that you choose influence the look and tone of the room, but also they will help keep out the hot summer rays.Payless Décor’s coolest looking (and feeling) blinds for summer would have to be our bamboo shades. I would have to recommend that you choose either a privacy or blackout liner to keep the temperature in the house down, but these shades are worth the investment. Despite what you may think, these shades will work with any décor from country rustic to sophisticated elegance.Our Premium, Designer, or Signature bamboo shade lines will offer you a choice of either a privacy or blackout liner that is permanently attached to the back of the bamboo (facing street side). By the way, they are attached using staples in the top of the headrail and then plastic anchors and fabric glue through the shade portion. The Signature line of bamboo now boasts a new movable liner that actually lowers and rises independently of the shade. This is a great option for those of you who love bamboo and your privacy!

My personal favorite, if you can swing it, would be to get the bamboo shades and then add a soft treatment around the outside of the shade. I LOVE this look and it is what I went for in my house. I inside mounted the unlined bamboo shades and added curtains on the outside. This way you still get the see-through light filtering of the bamboo, but you don’t have to compromise your privacy or room temp. So, check out the brand new drapery panels that we just got in. With all of the color choices in our bamboo and curtains, you should be able to come up with some amazing combinations that will finalize the best look in your room.

Of course, the old stand bys for summer are the cellular shades and the roller shades. The cell shades are a honeycomb design that reduces noise and heat. We just added a really cool cell shade in the Signature line that can be totally cordless and top down bottom up. It is the 3/8” Signature Double Cellular Shades. Safety meets functional privacy control with that feature.

Roller shades can be ordered as a solar screen, such as the Premium Roller shades Illumination Bronze. This way they are like sunglasses for your window-you can still see through them, but the light is tinted from being so bright. Or, you can get them as a blackout shade to maximize the efficiency of blocking out heat. And, similar to bamboo’s see through quality, you can also get some of the roller shades with an openness factor. For example, the Style 2000 has little holes to filter the light in. You can have the brightness of summer filtered in without even lifting your shade!
