Freshen Your Window Treatments for Summer

Life in the long, hot Florida summer is all about the shade, and that includes the shades on your windows. When the heat index hits a solid 100-102 degrees, even the sidewalks seem like they are melting. But with the right window treatments, you can be stylish and cool inside your home this summer. Here are a few window treatment ideas for a quick and easy summer makeover.


Changing your drapes can instantly change the mood in your room. Tropical floral prints can bring your summer decorating to the next level. Think cheerful pink, yellow, and green flowery prints on a solid background to bring in a fresh hint of color. Or go bold with bright turquoise, fuchsia, or purple to liven up a tired space. If you prefer, embrace the rising temperature with airy white drapes. Light, sheer curtains are a classic choice that lets in plenty of light without weighing down the room.

Window Shades

If drapes are too fussy and blinds are too cold for your decor, consider window shades. Some people use the terms shades and blinds interchangeably, but the general rule is that shades are a soft window treatment and blinds are a hard one.

Bamboo window shades are especially popular for summer. The textured look of bamboo adds an exotic touch to your decor and amplifies the tropical vibe. They go great with a neutral cream-colored window. To warm up the look, you can pair them with pale yellow or green walls.

Wooden Window Blinds

Streamlined wooden or faux wood blinds are another option that can bring a tropical look into your living room. They are available in many styles, colors, and patterns, making them a great option for creating the perfect look in any room. When combined with other window treatments, such as drapes, they give you maximum light-blocking. Pair them with white walls, neutral furniture, and subtle tropical prints for a fresh, relaxed feel.

Plantation Shutters

It’s hard to beat the classic grace and charm of plantation shutters. This is a sleek and stylish way to block the sun. They can be adjusted to let in just the right amount of sunlight to suit your taste. They have become a popular choice for kitchens and can also be double hung to let the lower louvers stay closed for privacy while the upper louvers let in light.

Last Minute Tip

If you are wary of bright bursts of color or bold prints, you can refresh your look for the summer with neutral, beachy colors such as beige, off-white, and light gray. Try layering drapes and shades for a stunning visual effect or contrasting simple neutral curtains with brighter walls and decor.
