What Houzz contributors are saying:
Treat windows wellHow you cover your windows will also play a part in keeping your house cool. Opt for natural fibres and consider full blackout backings on curtains, as well as a sheer layer for temperature control.
2. Block it outWindow treatments can play a crucial role in the temperature control of your home – for only the initial cost of the curtains or blinds. A dual system of a blockout and a sheer layer is an excellent method – you can use both layers on a cool night to lock in the heat and on hot days to block out the heat and strong light. Keep both open when you want to let in daylight and warmth. You can use the sheer layer on its own to filter strong sunlight or for daytime privacy.
3. White-on-whiteA serene white-on-white palette with soft layered finishes creates a calming, elegant look.In this coastal Sydney home, layer upon layer of warm white tones create a sense of peace and light. The use of mixed textures in the form of subtle patterned rugs, horizontal V-joint wall paneling and soft, sheer S-fold curtains come together in an elegant and inviting way.
