Beat the Heat with First 4 Blinds

Hello and welcome to Abode this week. As we continue to have such beautiful weather we're making the most of the longer days, but by the time the day is done it can be a struggle to keep cool, particularly at night. For this reason, without being ungrateful for the warmth, we wanted to offer a few ways that our team at First 4 Blinds can help you to keep your home feeling cool and fresh until Autumn arrives.


First on our list of helpful tips is the perfect investment piece for your home. Interior shutters are an easy way to control both the amount of sunlight entering your room as well as the level of privacy. They also have a wonderful holiday feel about them so you can bring the peace and relaxation of your summer holiday home with you! To find out more about our range of shutters, please use the following link, or use the contact link at the bottom of our article. We'll be more than happy to answer any questions you may have. We also have a blog article especially dedicated to shutters available to read here;


Next up are roller blinds. Although they might not be your first thought when it comes to keeping a room cool, roller blinds can be remarkably practical. Blackout roller blinds in lighter colours can help to control the amount of sunlight entering your room and keep your home cooler by not limiting too much incoming fresh air if left down over an open window. To discover more about our range of roller blinds, click here; And remember at First 4 Blinds, we offer a free measuring and fitting service to all customers.

Last but not least in our tips this week is a simple trick to help keep your bed crisp and comfortable. Switching your heavy duvet for lightweight sheets and blankets is an easy way to prevent getting too hot at night. This tip is especially effective if you choose natural fabrics for your bedding such as linen or organic cotton. The photo above from Pinterest shows a lovely example of a summer bedroom. It's cosy but not restrictive, and we love the colour combination too!
