You can shade your home from the sun in two ways – on the interior or the exterior. Interior shading options, including blinds and curtains, cover your windows from the inside, providing privacy, a shield against the sun, as well as beauty to complement your home’s interior design. Exterior shading options, on the other hand, prevent the sun’s heat from penetrating your home. They can also help provide privacy and even add style to the exterior of your home.
If you live in a particularly sunny area, you might want to consider exterior shading options that shield your windows from the heat of the sun before it can penetrate your home. These options include solar screens, exterior blinds, shutters, and awnings. All four look and operate differently and complement different architectural styles and home needs.
