Buying the Right Window Treatments

Window Treatments > Buying the Right Window Treatments

Finding the right window treatment for your home may be a difficult task considering the innumerable options available in the market. However, knowing what you need and what to look for can make it less complicated and the effort more rewarding.

Here is a quick list to guide you in choosing the perfect window treatment for your home.

  1. Make a list of all the rooms that will be treated providing details on window sizes, illumination levels, and privacy levels. It would also be a good idea to note the room’s color or theme to help you in choosing the right complement.
  2. Have a budget ready. With a budget, you can limit your choices only to the ones you can afford.
  3. For rooms where children sleep or play, it is best to choose q window treatment that does not have cords where they can accidentally get entangled.
  4. Rooms that require more privacy should have darker shades or you can opt for sheer window shades that can control light levels and privacy.
  5. For rooms that are directly exposed to the sun, choose window treatments that are energy efficient. These will keep the room cool during summer and warmer during winter. Though a bit more expensive than normal shades or blinds, you will more than make up for the cost with lower electricity bills.
  6. For bathrooms or kitchen, choose those that are easy to clean or those that will not be easily stained or will not absorb too much moisture.
  7. Rooms that have furnishings that can fade with sunlight or that have televisions or computers should have window treatments where light entry can be controlled easily.

After taking function into consideration, you can start choosing the style or color that will best complement and even enhance your home. Remember that a home with well-designed window treatments will have a higher market value than a home with just normal shades or draperies.
