What better reason than the approaching summer heat to finally install those window treatments you've been dreaming of? Curtains or blinds can block up to 60% of solar gain, so it really does make sense to use
pretty sensible blinds or drapes this summer.
So what to choose?
Darker or lined curtains that will pull across the full length of your windows are a good idea.
Roman blinds are also good and I love the simple and modern look.
Or, even simple roller blinds will work, and you can easily pimp them out so that they look cool in your room.
