  • These are great ideas. Summer heat can be unbearable that’s why it is best to find ways how to keep the house cool and window treatments is one of the ways. The most important thing here is the idea of blocking the sun. Window treatments are not only for added decorative purposes but for keeping the sun from entering the house.
