Summer has arrived, which in Texas means ridiculously hot, long summer days. Many of us prepare for the season with a change of wardrobe, trading our heavy fabrics to lighter more breathable ones. This summer, don’t forget to prepare your home too! With these window treatments, your home can embrace summer with bright, vibrant, and breezy styles.

solar screens

If you’re looking to block the sun but not the view then solar screens are an excellent option! Solar screens work well indoors and outdoors, with an aluminum frame that can easily be attached or removed from the exterior window frame. Our solar screens are available in varying degrees of openness – 1%, 3%, 5% and 10%, providing you with great savings on energy consumption.

cellular shades

This versatile window treatment is perfect for odd-shaped windows with customizable options to fit any window. Our locally crafted cellular window shades are made of Comfortex fabrics in light-filtering and room-darkening materials that come in a variety of color choices.  For a vibrant summer feel, choose cellular shades in a bold color! The blue cellular shades seen in this picture help create a relaxing vacation-like feel by resembling bright summer skies or tropical blue waters.

wood blinds

Wood blinds are a great option if you are going for a clean, crisp look. Their classic beauty can come in real or faux wood and an endless array of stain and paint colors in either smooth, vanity, or sandblasted finishes. In addition to their ability to complement any decor, wood blinds can simultaneously create the look you want and provide excellent thermal protection.


Harsh summer light often causes the colors and patterns of your carpets and furniture to fade. Luckily, you can protect your home decor from the Texas sun with our shutters. Shutters are extremely durable, even in moist environments such as bathrooms. At ABC, our interior shutters come in Premium Hardwood with an incredible selection of stock paint and stain finishes. We also offer custom paint and stain matches for an even more custom summer look.


Curtains in softer hues bring in the cool night air and keep out the hot summer sun. While drapery is usually made of heavier fabrics, curtains are made of lighter and more breathable fabrics. We offer a wide range fabric selection to help you create the look you have always dreamed of.
