Will blinds help to keep the heat out?

With temperatures climbing higher and higher each summer, more people are looking for new ways to remain cool in their homes and offices, and the question here is can blinds help to keep this heat out?.

What are the best blinds for reducing heat indoors? Pleated Blinds in Nottingham

Although windows can bring welcome natural light into our space, they can also raise the temperature to uncomfortable levels. Ways to keep the heat out of your home or office space include using curtains, sunshades, and window-tinting. However, it’s often much easier and more practical to invest in stylish blinds that will improve the appearance of your space. Blinds can be added to a wide range of properties, including modern and traditional spaces. Let’s take a look at some of the best types of blinds for keeping the heat out of your home or office. 

Vertical blinds

Vertical blinds are incredibly popular not just in the UK but all over the world. They don’t need to cost the earth and can deliver high levels of privacy as well as light control. Many people love the way vertical blinds give them unbeatable control over how much light is permitted into their space. You can rotate the individual louvres 180 degrees to get the results that you desire. There are so many patterns and colours to choose from, and this means there really is something to suit all tastes as well as your current décor.

Venetian blinds 

Venetian blinds can be very useful for reducing your room temperature. Slats come in materials like aluminium and wood, and you can tilt them to control how much sunlight reaches your space. You can close the blinds fully to reduce the temperature. Aluminium Venetian blinds are great for conservatories as they provide more heat control than materials like wood. Again, there are many different colours, styles and finishes to opt for when it comes to Venetian blinds.

Roller blinds

Roman Blinds in Nottingham

Roller blinds are well-known for their unfussy character. Despite their simplicity, they are more effective at reducing room temperature than you might think. These blinds have a solid sheet of fabric that sits across your window and are very efficient at maximising your window space whilst helping you achieve the temperature you desire. Child-friendly blackout roller blinds are available, and there are several motorised options for you to choose from too.

Twist / Vision blinds

Twist  or vision blinds will serve you well not only during the summer months but throughout the entire year. These blinds come complete with a transparent layer of fabric and a block colour layer. One of the things that makes twist vision blinds so popular is the way they trap heat between their layers. This makes them highly efficient in keeping your home cool in the summer and warm during the winter. More and more people have been investing in twist vision blinds over recent years, and various fabrics are available such as blackout which reduces temperatures even more in the summer months. The blackout fabric cloth is noted for the way it decreases heat absorption so impressively to boost your comfort.


Perfect fit/Intu blinds

Perfect fit blinds are very effective at decreasing heat and glare. These blinds take their name from the way they are made to measure and tailored towards your specific needs. When you opt for perfect fit blinds, you won’t see any unsightly gaps due to the way they fit your window so seamlessly. They can retain heat when you need it and reduce it when you don’t. No matter what the size and shape of your windows are, you can count on Boyds Blinds to provide you with perfect fit blinds that suit you down to the ground.

Why are these blinds so popular?

It’s all too easy to forget how uncomfortable your space can become during the warmer months of the year. However, you don’t need to fork out excessive sums on air-con systems to achieve the temperature that you desire. There’s no longer any need to rely on energy-guzzling fans that may send your electricity bills soaring either. Once you have paid a one-off cost for your blinds, you don’t need to pay for anything else.
