4 Best Blinds to Block the Light

Having a residence full of sunlight is delightful. But it can also make areas seem hotter and cause trouble with activities, like watching movies.

Buying custom blinds is an economical method to have extra control over natural light. When you collaborate with a professional design consultant, like one from Louver Shop of Kansas City, your residence can be just like you imagine it. We’ll be with you throughout the process. From picking styles and colors during your free consultation to professional installation.

Here are a few of the best blinds in Kansas City to block the light.

Plantation Blinds

Plantation blinds have wide louvers, like plantation shutters. They’re a great way to obtain the look of shutters at an economical price.

These blinds work best for smaller windows, since they’re usually moved by cords. If you select a corded system, ask your designer about de-Light™. This option reduces gaps and seams where daylight can come through.

Looking to use plantation blinds on large windows? Moving them is simple with PowerView®. This smart upgrade lifts, puts down, opens and closes your blinds with a program on your smartphone.

Plantation blinds can be ordered in real wood or faux wood, as well as many colors and finishes. Faux wood is a great option for spaces with a lot of humidity or moisture, for example a kitchen, bathroom or laundry room.

Plantation Shutters

When you imagine blinds, you may not immediately picture plantation shutters. But shutters give a nearly identical style—with superior light control and exceptional energy savings. They can be installed on windows of all shapes around your house and are simple to close with a tilt bar.

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

We provide a range of louver sizes, materials and stains so you can customize the ideal shutters for your space in Kansas City.

Panel Track Blinds

For new homes, there are panel track blinds.

With an assortment of opacities to choose from, you can customize how much sunlight your blinds will soften while drawn. With upwards of 600 colors and textures to choose from, you’re sure to come across a solution that will complement your space.

Even though these blinds are designed for larger windows, they can be used to stand out on smaller ones in addition. Whatever size window you use them on, the panels gather neatly together when moved to introduce additional light.

Vertical Blinds

For standard Kansas City residences with big windows, check out vertical blinds. Modern models are a long way from the white aluminum vanes you may connect with this window treatment.

Cadence® soft vertical blinds have curved vanes that imitate curtains. But these vanes don’t just look great. They stop more outdoor sounds so you can revel in your space in quiet. And an exclusive headrail keeps them together to lower the chance of light leaks.

Like other Hunter Douglas styles, these blinds are available in a wide variety of popular colors and textures.
