Window treatments come in all forms and the finished look should capture your unique style. So, here are a few simple ideas for choosing how to enhance your windows – whether with shades, blinds or shutters. These choices can be found in our showroom.
From Elegant to Energy Saving, Shades are an Ideal Choice to Beautify Your New Home.
Our most popular styles of window coverings are Solar Shades, Cellular Shades and Roman Shades. Let’s start with solar shades, which essentially provide eye protection from the sunlight entering your home. They minimize ultraviolet rays while preserving your view and reducing glare. Cellular shades offer a clean style with a unique honeycomb design, durability and superior insulation; overall, they’re considered one of the industry’s most efficient energy saver. Roman shades are timeless and elegant and provide a clean-lined architectural look.
From Affordable to a Natural Look, Blinds are a Popular Option.
Our top sellers in blinds are faux wood blinds, wood blinds and vertical blinds. With faux wood blinds, you can get the warm look of real wood at a more affordable cost. It’s the most popular window treatment found in homes across the country. Of course, if you want the real thing, go with wood blinds and you’ll get a warm and natural appearance in your home. And then, there are vertical blinds that are ideal for large windows and glass doors. They provide convenient light control and easy opening.
Want a Modern Look? Choose Shutters.
Another option to treating windows are shutters, which control light, give privacy and help reduce energy bills. You can choose wood or composite shutters and in turn, you’ll get a modern and decorative look. Also, it’s worth noting that shutters are the only window coverings that ADD value to your home. Because shutters are custom made to fit each window they’re actually considered “window furniture” and will add to the appraisal value of your home.
Tips to Enhance and Beautify Your Window Treatments.
Now that you have options, here are some tips to keep in mind when it comes to selecting your window treatments.
- Go for the Complement: Make sure your blinds, shutters and shades complement — not match — your furniture. Think about what’s around your treatment, such as floors, ceilings and walls, and stay away from having similar or matching patterns.
- Light Side or the Dark Side? Think about how much light you want in your room. Blinds will allow you to adjust lighting, while shades don’t have that option. Controlling the ambient light that enters your home allows you to create the vibe you want for yourself and your guests.
- KISS (Keep It Simple, Susan.): Go for what fits your style. Trust your instincts. How do you want to fashion your beautiful home? Remember, you want your window treatments to complement the furniture. For the design-challenged, we offer professional showroom and in-home consultation to help create the right look for your home.
Trending Now in Window Coverings
Some of this year’s window treatment trends includes choosing a jewel tone, layering shades and going with creative patterns over solid ones.
Jewel tones range from deep reds to subtle blues and amethyst and turquoise, and they are meant to match the atmosphere of your space. Layering shades allow for a focal point in the room. Another trend is using window treatment that will allow a lot of natural light to enter, so that means using simple panels of sheer fabric.
