Beat the Texas Heat with Shades from Southern Shutters & Blinds

March 26, 2015

ThinkstockPhotos-483835779Spring has sprung, the Texas bluebonnets are in bloom and the birds are on wing. All this means that the hot Texas summer must be just around the corner. Texans are a hearty folk for handling the heat outdoors, but that certainly doesn’t mean they want to handle heat indoors. And the rooms in a central or south Texas home can take a beating from the sun. For this reason, Southern Shutters & Blinds in Georgetown, TX, offers a number of beautiful and energy efficient window treatment options to keep your home cool and comfortable and your air conditioning costs down.

Southern Shutters & Blinds carries three types of quality Hunter Douglas products that will not only be the perfect finishing touch for your room, but will also provide the energy efficiency you need.


Hunter Douglas’ Duette shades have a patented cellular construction that traps air in honeycomb pockets to help keep your house cooler in the summer months.  This means that less heated air penetrates through and less cool air escapes. And while the honeycomb design makes Duette extremely energy efficient, the simplicity of shape and overall design make this shade beautiful, as well.


You can change the look of a room and eliminate the sun’s glare with Silhouette window shades. Silhouette shading features the signature S-vane design that seems to float between two sheers. To soften the look of harsh sunlight, simply tilt the vanes to your desired level of light and privacy. And because Sihouette shades block 88 percent of UV rays when opened and 99 percent of UV rays when closed, you can enjoy a sunlit room without concern for sun exposure to you or your furniture.

Roller Screens and Shades

Hunter Douglas Roller Screens and Shades from Southern Shutters & Blinds are a contemporary solution to an age-old problem. Our collection of roller shades provide simplicity of design in light control fabrics that range from sheer to opaque. Hunter Douglas’ Designer Screen Shades have light-defusing factors of 0 to 15 percent, thus offering UV protection while allowing an obstructed view through the shades.
