While summer hasn’t arrived just yet, it seems that Mother Nature wanted to kick of the season early with temperatures over 90 degrees here in Maryland at the start of June. If you’re like many families, you’re likely beginning to explore ways to keep your home as cool as possible without cranking the air conditioning system more than necessary. In this blog, we outline a few window treatments that will allow you to enjoy the brightness of summer while you keep the heat where it belongs: outside!
Cellular Honeycomb Shades
We couldn’t make a blog about summertime window treatments without mentioning Cellular Honeycomb Shades. The internal honeycomb shape of the shades allows air to be trapped between your window and the shade itself, offering you maximum temperature control even on the hottest days of the year. Of course, these same benefits will transfer over to the wintertime when you’re trying to keep the heat inside the home.
Sonnette Cellular Roller Shades
For those seeking an insulative window treatment solution with a more formal appearance, be sure to check out the Sonnette Cellular Roller Shade. Rather than relying on an engineered honeycomb shape, this luxury shade makes use of two layers of fabric that diffuse light and create a soft glow at your window. The second, undetectable layer traps air in distinct pockets to add an extra layer of insulation at your window.
Energy efficiency is important, but it shouldn’t come at the cost of creating a dark atmosphere during the brightest time of year. That’s why we recommend Silhouette® Window Shading. When it comes to blending a mixture of energy efficiency, light control, UV protection, and privacy, there is no better choice on the market! After installation, these shades will allow you to enjoy the bright sunshine of summer all season long.

Regardless of the window treatment you upgrade to this summer, PowerView® Automation can upgrade it to the next level. This system allows complete automation of window treatments, meaning you can adjust your window coverings based on sunrise, hot afternoon sunlight, sunset, and bedtime. Alternatively, you can also make adjustments on the fly using your smart assistant or the included remote control!
