Southern Florida offers a completely different experience from what you’ll find in the northern or central regions. Instead of dealing with the long crowds of traffic outside the amusement parks and the bright lights of the big city, you can relax in your home and enjoy the peace and quiet. You want peace and quiet, and window coverings can help with that.
Multiple nature preserves and parks are just a short drive from your home when you want to get away too. At Reef Window Treatments, we want your home to feel like a castle, which is why we offer so many window treatments that work on the coastal homes found in the area. Get the best fashions that will fit the Palm Beach or Miami atmosphere.
Best Window Treatments for Coastal Lifestyle
Majestic sunsets, lush garden scenery, and the sound of waves crashing against a shoreline – these are all common characteristics one associate with life near an ocean.
A home close to this natural beauty is not only quieter than any city street by comparison but also offers its occupants exclusive access to some of nature’s most inspiring creations. In addition to providing refuge from modern-day stresses such as high unemployment rates or traffic gridlock for that fortunate enough to live in proximity!
The sun, sand, and surf of beaches are perfect for pale colors like cream or light blue. Window treatments play a starring role in beach homes too—they’re key to anchoring the room but also need to preserve the view, protect furnishings from direct sunlight, and stand up against heat with their fabric selection. Read on for some stylish coastal window treatment ideas that will work well near an oceanfront property!
Shades and Blinds
One thing to consider as you browse the products that we offer is whether blinds or sheers are better for your home. Blinds come in different designs such as vertical blinds that you can easily push to one side when you head outside. Shades often have a horizontal design. That stretch from one side of your window to the other and go up and down with ease when you want to open the window or close the shades. Roman shades and some of the other products we offer give you more privacy and block out more of the sun and outdoor light.
Coastal Shades: Woven Wood Shades
For a home that is primarily white, woven wood shades infuse texture into space and create visual interest. All while beautifully filtering sunlight, Provenance® Woven Wood Shades are made from natural fibers of different woods which give them strength against stretching or breaking!
For homes with mostly light-colored walls (especially on the interior), Provenance® Wooden Shade has a beautiful effect in creating both warmth to spaces as well as providing ambient lighting for rooms day and night.
Maximize your ocean view with the Top-Down, Bottom-Up option for a layered effect that allows you to open shades from the top or bottom. Provenance Shades are also available depending on whether your preference is light filtering and privacy!
Hurricane season can wreak havoc on Southern Florida. Between the hard rain and the intense winds, your whole home can shake in the middle of those storms. Exterior shutters offer quite a bit of protection from those storms and allow you to sleep comfortably without worrying about the wind breaking your windows. We offer an extensive line of interior shutters that work just as well. These shutters keep the glass inside the frame if the window breaks and gives you more privacy. We offer shutters with a protective coating that keeps the bright color from fading in the sun too.
Add Some Power
One of the newest products available from Hunter Douglas is the PowerView app, which you can download to any smart device. After you pick your new window treatments and have us install them, you can connect that app to your blinds. With one press of a button, you can open those blinds and let the light stream through your windows. This is a great way to wake your kids and spouse up in the morning, you can also use this app to open and close the blinds when you’re on vacation or at work.
