Once you have decided it is time to update your home’s window treatments, you have to then decide what you are looking for. There are so many decisions that will come up when you are purchasing new window treatments, so we are here to offer you a guide that will help you. This guide features 5 things to consider when buying window treatments which will make all of your decisions much easier.
One of the first things to consider is what function you need your window treatments to serve. Window treatments can serve a number of purposes including light control, privacy, UV protection, energy-efficiency, and more. Once you determine which of these you are looking for or which combination, your shopping will be much easier. We offer numerous options for each need. From cellular shades for energy-efficiency to screen shades for UV protection, we have something for everyone.
Benefits of Custom
You also need to decide if you want custom or store-bought window treatments. Store-bought window treatments are much more suited to standard sized windows and likely won’t last as long as custom options. Custom window treatments are cut to fit your windows perfectly, even specialty-shaped windows.
Once you’ve determined custom versus store-bought, you need to decide between blinds, shades, shutters, and drapery. Each has its own benefits and downsides. Depending on where in your home you are installing them you may want to consider certain types over others. For example, for a bathroom, wood blinds wouldn’t be suitable due to the humidity, but a faux wood material may be better suited. If you need more help with deciding which is best, we are here to help you.
Color is another thing to consider. Depending on whether you are doing a full remodel or are just changing your window treatments, you may need to consider your current décor. You will want your new window treatments to complement your old décor. During our initial consultation, we can help you browse swatches that will look great with your current interior style.
Lastly, you will need to choose an operating system. Something to consider when choosing operating systems for your window treatments is whether you have children or pets or may in the future. This is because operating systems that use dangling cords to open and close them can be choking hazards to children and pets, and you may want to consider something that doesn’t use cords.
