Top Window Treatments For Double Hung Windows In Sacramento

Curtis Orton

In the event Sacramento has enjoyable outside conditions, it’s wonderful to find some fresh air and sunlight coming through the open top sash in your double-hung windows. But keep in mind, the vast majority of window coverings cover the top pane when lowered.

If you’re looking for a private interior without covering up your upper sashes, consider Polywood plantation shutters or unique top-down and bottom-up shades. These window treatments for double-hung windows in Sacramento give you the best control of privacy, airflow, and light.

You’re In Charge Of Airflow And Light With Plantation Shutters

Comparable to double-hung windows, you have the option of opening plantation shutters two different ways: open the panels to uncover your window for full light or keep them shut and move the louvers with the center tilt bar for the desired levels of natural light and privacy. Either way, you bring in outside air when you open the top or bottom sash on traditional double-hung windows. If your goal is ideal air circulation, swing the shutters open and adjust the top and bottom sashes so a cooler breeze enters at the lower section, and warm air escapes over the upper sash.

Interior shutters offer functionality for different window types including tilting, double-hung installations. Swing your shutters at the hinge and utilize the tilt option for ventilation. You could ask your installer about mounting your treatments with an outside mount so you can crack the panes open a little bit while the panels are closed. And of course, you can always use the louvers to control privacy and light.

You also have the choice to implement a split rail in each shutter panel. This allows you to open one section of the panel to let in the light while keeping the other half closed to protect your privacy.

Get the Air Circulation And Privacy You Want With Top-down/Bottom-up Roman Shades

Top-down/bottom-up Roman shades can be moved down at the top or up from the bottom, in a similar fashion to your double-hung windows. For this reason, they are an excellent choice for these types of windows when you’re seeking out improved air circulation and lighting without giving nosy neighbors a view into your home.

Open your windows at the top and drop down your window shade to allow a gentle breeze and natural light while maintaining privacy with the window covered at the bottom. You might leave small openings in the window and shade at the top and bottom for air circulation while keeping the majority of your window blocked.

Knowing that you will keep your top-down/bottom-up window treatments in full-cover mode on most days, it makes sense to select a product as appealing as Roman shades. The distinctive pleats and array of material, color, and pattern choices make Roman shades a captivating design element for your Sacramento home that your family will love.

Reduce Energy Costs With Top-down/Bottom-up Cellular Shades

Double-hung windows offer excellent ventilation on a beautiful day, but those adjustable sashes can cause more drafting than other types of windows. One fix for this potential problem is top-down/bottom-up cellular shades. Also known as honeycomb shades, this treatment features fabric cells that catch exterior air flowing around your sashes.

This unique feature also helps prevent inside air from leaking out. Considering this benefit, cellular shades help keep your interior temperature stable and your HVAC expenses down.

Their energy efficiency makes honeycomb shades suitable Sacramento window treatments on double-hung windows all year long. Pull them open in the upper or lower sections to match with your windows for fresh air during mild weather and cover your windows back up to safeguard your Sacramento home from extreme temperatures when the seasons change.
