5 Window Covering Design Tips for New Homes

Congratulations! A new home is an exciting time. And it’s the perfect time to design stylish and functional window coverings for Colorado Springs homes. Whether you buy standard blinds and shades or are considering custom-made options, use the following top design tips to start planning your new window coverings.

Layer Your Window Coverings

The best part about blinds and shades is they can be layered with valances and drapes for dimension, style, and convenience. Blinds and shades offer the convenience of raising and lowering them for privacy and temperature control. Layer these with a top valance or side drapery panels for added color or patterns to enhance your room and frame the view.

Protect Your Furniture with Solar Shades

Daily exposure to UV rays can ruin that beautiful new furniture you bought. Know which windows in your home will experience direct sunlight during the day and choose solar shades to reduce sun glare and protect your furniture from sun damage. Do you have large windows with a view? You can customize solar shades to fit any sized window and add motorized features to raise and lower them with ease. Choose from light or dark shades which allow more light to enter or offer access to your view even when the shades are drawn.

Customize Your Window Coverings

Many new homeowners are interested in customizing window coverings for Colorado Springs homes. This option allows you to pick the textures, styles, and fabrics as well as customize the size for uniquely sized windows. Experienced installation services are available to install new custom blinds or shades for an even fit.

Don’t Be Afraid to Add Color or Pattern

When deciding on colors or patterns, consider the design and colors of the floor, walls, and furniture. Don’t be afraid to add bold colors or sleek patterns to your blinds, shades, or drapery panels to stand out amongst the room décor. Get creative with textures or natural elements for dimension and style in your new home.

Use Professional Installation Services

Installing window blinds or shades on a new home could take the average homeowner hours or days to complete all the windows. Expert installers are experienced at installing blinds and shades with accuracy in a fraction of the time. Protect your investment by using professional installers to hang your new window coverings for you.
