Mountain living offers different challenges for decorating than other climates. In the mountains, wood expands and contracts depending on the season. The nights are cold with temperatures dipping into the 30’s and 40’s while daytime temperatures can top 95 degrees. It’s the extremes that appeal to some. Most people who live in the mountains do without air conditioning in order to enjoy the clean, fresh mountain air. As such, it can be a challenge to keep houses and apartments cool during the long summer days, which is why Blinds Chalet announces their best window treatments for mountain living.
- Light Filtering Double Cell Shades. Cellular shades or honeycomb shades offer some of the best insulating qualities of any blind or window treatment on the market. For mountain environments, opening windows at night, then closing the blinds during the day will keep in the cool mountain air. They light filtering abilities ensure the long hours of summer aren’t missed.
- Solar Screen Shades. When living in the mountains, views are often a huge factor in choice of home. In order to maintain views while blocking UV rays and improving temperature and draft control, solar screen shades are the way to go. They help limit eye-straining glare, maintain view-through so the views can still be enjoyed without absorbing the harsh summer sun’s rays and solar screen shades provide a finished look to any room.
- Wood Blinds. Aesthetically, wood blinds work in the mountains. From log cabins to mountain-side chalets they bring in the look and feel of what the mountains are all about. From woven wood blinds to basswood blinds, there’s a wood window treatment for any home. Wood blinds also insulate against the elements and noise pollution. They are easy to adjust for the desired amount of light in a room.
