Cool Style with Summer House Blinds

Slatted window treatments (like blinds and shutters) have long been a popular option for those living in hot or humid climates. For hundreds of years, the slatted design has remained a reliable tool in cooling a home using natural ventilation and control over natural light. With summer house blinds the maneuverable slats, also called louvers, can block direct light and deflect inclement weather without closing the window treatment completely. This prevents rooms from becoming stuffy by allowing for natural airflow, and with the strategic use of blinds across the house cooling cross breezes can be created that are a more environmentally friendly and economically practical way to cool homes.
