Summer Inspired Window Treatments!



Even though it has felt like summer here in Southern California for months now, officially it became summer on the June 21st.  Summer brings so much color back into our lives after the long dark days of winter (even though "winter" days don't really exist here).  Summer also brings the heat, and it's a a constant reminder that your windows need to be covered.  Factory Direct Blinds is here to help with that and help add a little color back into your home in the process.


Summer really is a perfect excuse to change up your blinds whether it is just a change in color, an upgrade, or just to try something new.  Summer is a great time to get some new window coverings.  If your house is having a hard time retaining the nice cool air from you air conditioning (which isn't cheap) then cellular shades are just what you need.  Cellular shades or honey comb shades are one of the best insulating window treatments.  They keep all of that expensive cold air inside where it belongs.  They are also great for sound absorption and are available in blackout.  A cordless option is perfect for a child's room in the summer -allowing them to sleep till noon and stay safe.

Summer also means that the kids are home, wreaking havick on just about anything they can get their hands on.  They do not discriminate against window treatments!  Most of the time, kids are running in and out of the patio door bringing the blinds with them.  Vertical blinds are the most popular window treatment for sliding or patio doors . Vertical blinds are also the most economical for any large windows.  With our vertical blinds you are able to add additional vertical slat just in case one gets damaged.  Verticals are pet and child friendly when you choose a wand option instead of a pull cord.

If you are looking for something easy to help block out that mid-day sun but you still want your the morning light, then a roller shade may solve all your troubles.  Roller shades are available in both light filtering and blackout.  The great thing about roller shades is how low profile they are.  They can roll completely up letting you still enjoy your view, but can be lowered completely keeping all of that light at bay.


Summer is a great time to do a few home improvement projects and one of the easiest things to do is changing your window coverings.  New window coverings can really make a large difference not only in the look of your house, but it can also help with energy cost and in keeping your house cool.  As always, we offer free samples of all our  window coverings taking the guess work out of ordering online.  Our friendly staff is here to help with anything - from measuring to installs.
