Window treatments are one of the most important aspects of a home’s decor and are often the focal point. Many interior decorators and choose window coverings before finalizing furniture and accessories choices for a room.
If chosen carefully, high-quality blinds and draperies can last a very long time and not go out of style. Although it may be tempting to save a little bit of money and purchase store bought blinds or shades, you will not get the same durability, quality and style that you would get with custom window treatments.
Here are 4 reasons to choose custom window treatments for your new home:
The majority of big box store window treatments are not high quality. They are often poorly constructed and in the case of draperies and fabric shades are not hemmed and lined properly. If these drapes even have a lining, it is usually thin and made from cheap fabric. Custom window treatments, on the other hand, are of exceptional quality and come with a warranty. Made with premium materials and durable linings, custom window treatments offer exceptional quality and durability compared to blinds, draperies and fabric shades purchased off the rack.
#2 CUSTOM FIT
Most windows are not perfectly square and also often have some kind of protrusion such as a window lock/opening mechanism. This makes it challenging when it comes time to select window treatments. Many off the rack blinds, shades and draperies do not offer a perfect fit and it's even more of a challenge to find window treatments for oddly shaped windows when shopping at your local home improvement store or an online budget store. When you choose custom made window treatments, we will come and measure your windows to guarantee a perfect fit for your windows.
#3 ENERGY EFFICIENT
Energy efficient window coverings can significantly lower heating and cooling costs in your home. Unfortunately, most budget store bought window treatments do not help much with energy efficiency.
A custom window treatment, such solar shades made with Phifer Sheerweave fabric or Graber cellular shades, provide both energy efficiency and style. These custom window treatments have a unique qualities to increase energy efficiency. The cellular construction of the Graber cellular shades hold trapped air and create a barrier between the window surface and the room, thus lessening the transfer of heat. Solar shades filter out UV rays keeping your home cool in the hot summer months.
#4 PERSONAL DESIGN SERVICE
If you choose blinds, shades or draperies from your local home improvement superstore, you will probably not receive personalized service. The salespeople are generally not experts about products that they sell. When you order custom blinds and drapes, you will work with us personally and we will help you choose the very best product for your home.
