Basement Window Blinds & Shades

Choosing the best window treatment for a living room or bedroom makes sense to most people. But not everyone is concerned about finding the best option for basement windows. Even homeowners with small basement windows can benefit from installing high-quality blinds or shades.

First, installing blinds on basement windows is an important privacy and security measure. Most people don't spend much time in their basements as they typically go down to leave or collect an item.

Perhaps you're keeping valuable equipment in your basement. You don't want random passersby to have the ability to see what's inside. Installing blinds or shades keeps the prying eyes at bay.

Because the basement is often a storage space, protecting your items from damaging ultraviolet (UV) rays is essential. Solar shades can prevent that and are often an excellent choice for basement windows.

Basement window blinds can effectively help you control indoor temperatures. They can reduce the amount of hot or cool air leaving the house and impact the monthly energy bill. This is especially true if the windows in the basement are not insulated or have not been weatherproofed.

There are a few options to consider when it comes to basement window solutions.

  • Faux wood blinds – Real wood blinds are gorgeous but incredibly impractical and expensive. Faux wood blinds are affordable and very easy to install. But more importantly, they are perfect for humidity-prone places like basements due to their moisture-resistant properties.
  • Cellular shades – If you're looking for energy-efficient basement window treatments, cellular shades are the best option. Their honeycomb-style design allows both light filtering and layered insulation. They are generally available in single or double-cell styles.
  • Pleated shades – You can also install pleated shades over your basement windows and ensure phenomenal light filtering and privacy. These shades are available in many styles and colors and work well with the cordless lift option.
  • Zebra blinds – If you want light control, privacy, and an unobstructed view, zebra blinds are the way to go. They are versatile in style and offer decent UV protection.
  • Roman shades – Undoubtedly, Roman shades are classic and very stylish. At first glance, they might not be the obvious choice for a basement window treatment. However, if you already have Roman shades in other rooms and appreciate their light-filtering features, they're the logical choice for your basement.
  • Mini blinds – If your basement windows are small, mini blinds are a simple solution. They're easy to install and are available in many designs and colors. They're more affordable than some other window treatments and can be customized for any basement window.


FAQ

Why do basements need blinds?

There are several reasons for installing blinds over your basement windows. First, light filtering or blackout blinds eliminate any privacy concerns. Additionally, custom window coverings reduce the UV ray penetration that can cause damage.

Covering the basement window frame with lovely cellular, faux wood, or solar shades enhances the overall visual appeal of the space.

How do you clean basement blinds?

Keeping the basement window blinds clean is essential, especially due to poor ventilation and dustiness. The cleaning process will depend on the installed basement window treatments.

Standard basement window blinds are pretty easy to clean unless you've installed curtains. A mild detergent, warm water, and a soft cloth are usually more than enough to ensure the blinds remain in good condition. You can check out this guide for more information.
