Posted by All About Blinds   |   October 8, 2021


While we Floridians may not get the full sweater and hot cider experience that is stereotypical for Fall, there is still a crispness to the air that comes that gives us relief after the long, hot summer. 

But no matter what the season, the name of the game when it comes to window shades is complimentary style with energy efficiency. We still use our AC in Florida during the Fall months, but relief from the high cost of energy bills is a welcome sign of Fall as well.  And with the right window treatments, you could cut those bills down even further.

How to Increase Privacy Without Sacrificing Natural Light

Posted by All About Blinds   |   September 7, 2021


Here are some easy (and stylish) ways to do it! 

There are many excellent reasons to preserve natural light in your home. For starters, the sun’s rays give rooms and everything in them a more attractive glow. It’s good for your health, too! Exposure to natural light helps our bodies produce Vitamin D, regulates our sleep patterns, and boosts energy. It even lifts our mood, especially in the darker winter months when some people are prone to seasonal affective disorder, a type of depression. 

But you also want privacy in the comfort of your abode. Large windows are gorgeous, but they also give others a literal “window” into your lives, which can make you feel like you live in a fishbowl. 

So how do you reconcile these two needs? Plantation shutters, blinds, and shades are all great options to give you light control and privacy at the same time. Read on for some very stylish ways to ensure your home has the privacy you and your family desire while still allowing the sun to shine in!

Featured Product Spotlight: Lykewood Shutters

Posted by All About Blinds   |   September 7, 2021


Are you looking for an exceptionally durable, aesthetically pleasing, and practical window covering for your Jacksonville home? 

Plantation shutters, made of wide flat or elliptical louvers, are versatile enough to maintain your family’s privacy and still allow natural light to brighten your interior. It is no surprise that this window treatment is one of the most popular on the market today. 

The main difference between plantation shutters and traditional shutters is the width, as traditional shutters are usually only about 1 ¼ inches wide and plantation shutters are as wide as 5¼ inches. This gives them a modern, fresher appearance that complements any style of abode. 

If you’ve decided that plantation shutters are the right choice for you, your next task is to choose a material; wood, composite wood, MDF, PVC, or polymer. Read on to learn more about the benefits of All About Blinds & Shutters’ Lykewood, our premiere polymer shutter, and determine whether they’re ideal for your home.

Window Covering Solutions for Your Sliding Door

Shade Slider

Nothing beats feeling a cool summer breeze, hearing the crickets chirp, and seeing the fireflies dance as the sky dips delicately into darkness. If your home has the much-desired feature of sliding doors, then you are lucky enough to enjoy these sensational moments every day.

Now let’s flip to the other side of the coin. A sliding door becomes problematic when it isn’t covered properly. It exposes your space and belongings to harmful UV rays, creates an invasion of privacy, and welcomes unwelcomed street lighting. 

Lucky for you, All About Blinds & Shutters has the perfect solutions for a coverless sliding door. It’s time to take back your summer moments — the breeze, the crickets, the fireflies, and the sky — one sensation at a time.
