If you've recently moved into an urban apartment for the summer, there are a few considerations you should keep in mind for the impending warm weather. Air conditioning costs can skyrocket during this season, but window blinds and shades can make a huge impact to enhance your light filtering ability and to control air leakage.

The sun is especially strong during the summer, so apartment dwellers need to kept their shades drawn during the day to avoid having to come home to a sweltering house. A good course of action is to use blackout shades in your bedroom to keep the environment cool throughout the day, and to provide privacy and total darkness during the night.

In your living spaces, you can go with a window shade that has a bit more personality and decorative potential. Bamboo woven wood shades are a wonderful choice for any design scheme, and they will instantly add a natural aesthetic to your living spaces.

Soft sheer shades are another option for living rooms that allow a view to the outdoors while still providing privacy. They can be custom-made to fit any window and will offer superior light filtering capability.
