The Smart Window Treatments To Black Out Your Windows In New York City

June 16, 2021

Store-bought ”blackout” window coverings claim they block all light, allowing for insulation, privacy, and of course, darkness. Unfortunately, they aren’t perfectly sized for your exact window measurements as light intrudes around the edges. Instead, install custom roller shades or Polywood® shutters to black out windows in New York City. Your customized roller shades can have a thick, dark pattern or color and will match the dimensions of your window opening to prevent light from entering, while interior shutters insulate windows.

Customized Room-Darkening Roller Shades Block Exterior Light

When you’re looking to black out windows in New York City for darkness or privacy, install made-to-order room-darkening roller shades. This popular window treatment come in a quality material that is opaque enough to prevent all sunlight from shining through them.  If you get a custom-crafted treatment, your window treatment rep will get exact measurements and ensure the new treatments are exactly right for your window size to prevent unwanted gaps around the borders. When you pull down your shades, they will completely cover the window pane and keep the exterior light from entering.

Installing made-to-order room darkening roller shades will assist with insulation as well. Their heavy material and precision fit help block out the sun’s heat and winter’s chilly drafts. You’ll feel warmer in during the wintertime and cooler in the summertime with your light-inhibiting shades, and you could see money savings on energy expenses.

your room darkening shades are good looking as well. The term “blackout” doesn’t apply to the color of the shade. Blackout roller shades can be found in a range of colors and in various designs to match your decor. While great looking, the material is thick enough to stop the sun from leaking in. Blackout roller shades are an attractive means to impede the sun’s rays when an absence of light is required for bedtime, a movie, or to maintain the desired comfort levels.

Interior Shutters Are Energy-Efficient

A majority of residents are in the market for window treatments in New York City for better energy efficiency. limiting hot sunshine and cold air that comes through windows keeps your house cozy and energy costs low. Products like blackout roller shades and blinds that are crafted with dense, heavier materials may improve efficiency, but Polywood® shutters will enhance your home even more. They utilize weatherstripping along all borders that insulates windows better than alternative window coverings. When closing your sturdy interior shutters, this beneficial insulating quality fights off summer’s heat and winter’s cold. Your heating and cooling equipment won’t have to work as hard, and your property stays comfortable without a high utility bill.

Interior shutters also keep out most light. They can’t get displaced with a slight nudge or bump like other, more lightweight materials as they are put together using solid, sturdy materials. The shutter panels are custom-made to fit snugly over your windows. There is virtually no room along the perimeter for light to sneak through like you typically find with ready-made shades and blinds. The slats are also crafted to secure snugly against each other and let in only the slightest glow of outside light after they’re closed.
