Indoor solar shades are the perfect choice in rooms where you want to reduce glare and ultraviolet (UV) rays. Solar shades are designed to cut down on harmful sun rays while still maintain your view outside. Reducing glare is ideal for home theaters, media rooms, and home offices where annoying glares on a screen can disrupt the experience. Solar shades also block UV rays, control heat buildup, and even protect furniture.
Benefits of Choosing Solar Shades
At JustBlinds, our goal is to make window treatment shopping as easy as possible. Our Buying Guides for Shades is a great place to start! Here are some advantages when choosing solar shades for your home:
- Keep Your View: Solar shades block sunlight but don’t obstruct your view.
- Glare Protection: Solar shades significantly reduce glare from sunlight and are ideal choices in media rooms, offices, home theaters, or anywhere you spend around screens.
- UV Blocking: Solar shades help to block harmful UV rays, protecting furniture and reducing heat.
Upgrades and Options
Solar shades have some options and upgrades available to enhance their look or function.
- Motorized Lift: The ultimate in convenience. This option lets you raise or lower your solar shades at the touch of a button, ideal for hard-to-reach windows and households with children and pets.
- Cordless Lift: This popular option provides a hidden control system that eliminates the lift cord on your solar shades and enables the shades to be easily raised or lowered with the touch of a finger.
- Continuous Cord Loop Controls: With this option, the cords on your solar blinds will be secured to wall or window frame, meaning your shades will have fewer visible cords. Available on most window sizes, it’s especially useful for making larger or heavier shades easier to operate.
- Opacity: Choose from light filtering materials with various percentages of light blocking or go full blackout, ideal in bedrooms and movie rooms.
Here are a few things to consider before purchasing solar shades.
- Inside mount solar shades must meet a minimum depth requirement to accommodate the mechanism. As a result, inside mount option may experience some light gaps between the edge of the shade and the window frame. For a full light blocking installation, consider going with an outside mount.
- Solar blinds with a light filtering fabric will not provide nighttime privacy, as the same visibility you get during the day will be reversed at night when lights are on inside the home. For more privacy, consider going with a blackout fabric.
