3 Tips for Choosing Window Treatments

If you’re redecorating your home, you know the challenge of choosing between a variety of style and functionality options for every fixture. One important feature of your home is your window treatments. Remember these tips as you start search for the perfect shades, blinds, or shutters.

Measure Your Windows: Begin by measuring the size of your windows. If you are installing window treatments in several different rooms in your house, then measure them all. A window treatment for one window may not look best on a smaller window in another room. Determine whether your windows are long and narrow or short and wide to help you choose the best window treatment.

Consider Your Convenience vs. Design Aesthetics: Another factor to consider when choosing window treatments is the function of your windows. Do you need shade to block sunlight in your child’s room? Are you looking for an easy renovation project to update your home’s style? Blinds that operate from the top down increase both functionality and privacy. If sunlight is your main concern, consider transparent shades that decrease glare and prevent harmful UV rays from entering your home. Sheer fabric shades also add a beautiful, soft quality to your home’s atmosphere. However, transparent shades do not offer as much privacy. Also consider whether you want permanent window treatments, such as cornices and valances, or a more temporary solution.

Create a Safe Environment: If you have a family your top priority is every member’s safety. Having babies and toddlers in your home poses a concern. Long draperies can pose a threat to toddlers and pets. Pulling on the length of these window treatments could potentially harm your youngster and damage the shades. Instead, try short blinds and soft shades that remain above the floor. For the safety of your toddlers choose any type of cordless window treatment.
