Match Your Green Thumb with These Three Window Treatments in Alexandria

Even though our windows are the best places to enjoy the splendor of nature, lots of homeowners aren’t happy with just looking at the scenery. Alternatively, they lend a sense of vitality and serenity into their homes by adding houseplants to make personally important places feel even more special. An indoor garden is a great idea, but plants won’t always look their best without care. They need the correct amount of sunlight as well as a consistent range of temperatures to continue growing.

Those requirements can collide with keeping homes secluded and energy efficient. Luckily, the right window treatments offer the right compromise between sunlight, heat and energy efficiency. If you'd appreciate professional help reviewing all the choices, look into a free virtual or in-home consultation. Your local Louver Shop design consultant should be glad to help you browse color, fabric materials and other important details.

Sheer Shades Draw Natural Light Indoors

Sunlight is vital for houseplants, so you need plenty of it if you want these plants to prosper. This need for a consistent supply of light can frustrate your attempts at enjoying a feeling of privacy. Sheer shades solve this problem by allowing light in while keeping prying eyes out. Pick from various fabric opacities to balance your privacy concerns with the demands of your houseplants.

Nantucket Window Shadings are an ideal example. These form-focused shades translate bright sunlight into a friendly glow perfect for bringing out the natural beauty of your plants. They recede behind the headrail when raised, making them a great option for homeowners who prefer a plant on full display. And when you demand some privacy, floating vanes and sheer fabric ensure you can keep a space sunny and beautiful.

Honeycomb Shades Insulate Against Withering Heat

Even houseplants can struggle with having too much of a good thing. Most plants won't put up with cold, but excessive heat can shrivel leaves and leave the plant looking wilted. This can transform hot summers into a battlefield as you try to keep plants warm without scorching them in the afternoon sun. A quality set of honeycomb shades is an effective addition to your arsenal.

Duette® Honeycomb Shades offer insulating pockets of air that can prevent scorching heat from harming your houseplants. You can choose between single, double or triple-cell construction to find the perfect design. Honeycomb shades are available in all sorts of sheer fabric types, ensuring your houseplants experience all the benefits of sunlight with fewer downsides.

Plantation Shutters Withstand Humid Conditions

Shades are ideal for a mellow, comfortable look, but what about something with a bit more structure? Plantation shutters construct a regal sense that would look right at home in an upscale greenhouse or home conservatory. Merely adjust the louvers to your preferred position to allow light in without sacrificing privacy. You can double down on materials found in nature with hardwood shutters or try out an energy-efficient alternative.

LouverWood® Plantation Shutters bundle the durability of hardwood with the energy-efficient insulation of dense PVC. With up to three times the insulation, you can display several plants nearby without converting the space into a magnet for humidity or pests. Your LouverWood shutters will continue to look stunning as they resist heat, moisture and the test of time.
