Harvey's Summer Hacks

Harvey's Summer Hacks

From December to February, Australia belongs to summer. Summer translates to backyard cricket, a sweet run of public holidays, ice-cold beverages and the almighty sun reminding us that although it lives 147 million kilometres away, it's a daily commute it's willing to make.

It's important to prepare the home for the season ahead, and it starts with the windows! To truly summer proof your home, the right window treatment can go a long way in keeping the heat out. With a little help from Half Price Blinds, here you'll find a few suggestions to get your home summer ready!

How to Summer Proof your home:

When it comes to window treatments that keep the rays at bay, Roller Blinds are an easy (and cost effective) option. Simply roll the fabric up to increase the level of light or roll down to minimise glare and heat to help maintain comfortable living indoors.

If you want to level it up, it could be worth considering Double Roller Blinds, also known as dual roller blinds. Half Price Blinds Double Roller range combine two different types of blinds in one streamlined package. The layer closest to the window utilises a sheer or sunscreen fabric for excellent heat repelling qualities. The blinds have a second blockout fabric layer that not only keeps out a substantial amount of light and heat, it also offers complete privacy.

Aluminium Shutters are another fantastic indoor alternative to keep your home insulated from the sun. Tasteful, robust and a perfect match for a contemporary room, Aluminium Shutters block up to 70% more light than traditional alternatives. Their water-resistant properties also make them a great addition to kitchens, laundry rooms and bathrooms.

Outdoor Summer Proofing Tips:

The right window treatments are a sure-fire way to help insulate our home from the harsh Australian sun. Though, there's a range of outdoor options available right here at Half Price Blinds to help stop the heat closer to the source!

Summer entertaining often takes place in an outdoor space, but that doesn't mean you have to endure the heat. Outdoor Shutters are a stylish and effective way to control both heat and wind by adjusting the louvres to your preference. Total control over your Alfresco!
