4 Best Blinds to Block the Light

Having a home full of sunlight is pleasant. But it can also make areas seem warmer and cause trouble with activities, like watching movies.

Buying custom blinds is a low-cost approach to have added control over light. When you partner with a pro design consultant, like one from Louver Shop of Charleston, your home can appear just like you imagine it. We’ll support you from start to finish. From choosing styles and stains during your free consultation to professional installation.

Here are several of the best blinds in Charleston to block the light.

Plantation Blinds

Plantation blinds have thick slats, like plantation shutters. They’re a clever way to have the appearance of shutters at an economical price.

These blinds work best for small windows, since they’re typically raised and lowered by cords. If you want a corded system, ask your designer about de-Light™. This upgrade minimizes gaps and seams where sunshine can come through.

Looking to use plantation blinds on big windows? Moving them is easy with PowerView®. This innovative enhancement elevates, drops, opens and closes your blinds with a program on 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 a great option for areas with elevated 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 deliver a similar style—with excellent light control and great energy savings. They can be added on windows of all shapes throughout your residence and are nearly effortless to open with a tilt bar.

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

We have a range of louver thicknesses, materials and stains so you can design the right shutters for your house in Charleston.

Panel Track Blinds

For contemporary residences, there are panel track blinds.

With a range of opacities to choose from, you can customize how much natural light your blinds will soften while drawn. With upwards of 600 colors and patterns to select from, you’re sure to find an option that will work with your home.

Although these blinds work best with bigger windows, they can be used to make an impact on smaller ones in addition. Whatever size window you use them on, the panels fit neatly together when moved to let in additional light.

Vertical Blinds

For traditional Charleston homes with large windows, consider vertical blinds. Modernized models are a long way from the white metallic vanes you may associate with this window treatment.

Cadence® soft vertical blinds have curved vanes that resemble drapes. But these vanes don’t only look good. They absorb more outdoor noise so you can relax in your space in quiet. And an innovative headrail keeps them together to lower the chance of light leaking through.

Like other Hunter Douglas solutions, these blinds are available in a wide array of modern colors and patterns.
