With summer knocking on your front door, many people are ecstatic to be able to finally lay back, relax, and enjoy the summer sun. Some people are buying the right food to make for the perfect outdoor barbeque, while others may be busy picking out the perfect spot on the beach. What everyone wants to make sure of, however, is that we all have a safe and fun summer. Many people may not know this, but safety involves many things, including your windows. Here at Southern Shutters, we want to make sure you are able to enjoy your summer safely, so we have a few window safety tips for you to make that possible!
One of the most important things in window safety is making sure that nothing is blocking or preventing window from opening. This way, during an emergency, you will be able to exit your home quickly and efficiently. Another important tip is to make sure that no furniture, or anything that a child can climb, is near a window. Then, you are not only able to protect yourself, but your entire family, even the littlest of members!
Do not fully rely on insect screens to prevent your little one from falling through the window. Insect screens are used for ventilation, not child protection. Making sure your windows are not painted or nailed shut during spring repairs is another really important safety tip. Though it may not seem like a lot, these few, yet important, tips will ensure your family’s safety and fun this summer season!
If you have any questions and would like an answer, please come to Southern Shutters & Blinds to speak with one of our team members. We have locations in Georgetown and Manor, and we are happy to help customers from San Antonio, Georgetown, Austin, Round Rock, Manor, Liberty Hill, and beyond.

At Southern Shutters & Blinds, our goal is to help customers from Austin and beyond end up with window treatments that perfectly match the results they have in mind. How can we do that? Having our manufacturing facility helps. So does a commitment to great customer service.
But as important as both of these are, ending up with a window treatment that looks modern and beautiful relies on you having a plan. When you think about what you want your windows to look like, you might want to keep some of these tips from HGTV in mind.
First, avoid using heavy window coverings in your final look. Instead, opt for the kind of simple, elegant shades you’ll find for sale at our Manor and Georgetown locations.
Keep it light
When thinking about how to decorate your windows, it’s a good idea to choose colors that are subtle but also contemporary. It’s also good to consider the way your shades will filter light. Hunter Douglas shades, which we offer at both of our locations, are excellent for achieving a beautiful, well-lit look.
Don’t forget about texture
In relation to the first tip, you don’t want your windows to look busy, but it can help if you create a look that has some texture. Rattan, bamboo, and other fibrous materials are currently popular choices.
Do you have a plan in mind for your windows? Then we hope you’ll come to Southern Shutters & Blinds to speak with one of our team members. We have locations in Georgetown and Manor, and we’re happy to help customers from San Antonio, Georgetown, Austin, Round Rock, Liberty Hill, and beyond.
