When considering giving a houseboat a refresh on the decor this upcoming season, don't forget to address the window coverings.
A list of things to look at are, privacy, insulation, a custom fit, blackout, easy cleaning, wear & tear, and your style. Here are some tips when considering this.
1. Solar Shades/Roller Shades and Roman Shades-
Block outside heat to keep you cooler
Easy to operate
Solar can protect from UVA and UVB rays as well as sun damage
Have a small footprint when raised
2. Pleated Shades -
Available in hundreds of fabrics
Crisp pleats give modern style and durable operation
Easy to operate (we recommend a cordless lift)
Take up little space when raised
Available in blackout or light filtering
3. Cellular Shades -
Pleated fabric pockets insulate against outside temperatures
Some shades available with day/night option for light filtering and blackout functionality in one
Easy to operate (cordless lift recommended)
Work well for both small and oversized windows
Insulating fabric may also muffle outside noise
4. Blinds -
Durable and easy to clean
Available in lots of colors
Allows for better light control due to adjustable slats
Above all, choose window coverings that fit your personal style and the style of your houseboat (tiny home, moveable home or RV). If you want a more modern look, you may go with sleek solar shades, while a woven wood shade will bring more character to the space.
There are many more options you can consider as well, curtains, marine curtains, and snap-on curtains.
