4 factors to consider when you choose a window treatment

Is it time to freshen up your windows with new shades, blinds or shutters? Here are 4 factors to consider when you’re selecting new window treatments.

#1 Window dimensions

Let’s start with the basics: how much space do you have to cover? If you have small windows, or they are unusual shapes, you might need blinds which are custom fitted. Large windows will need window treatments which you can control easily.

#2 Shades versus blackout blinds

Think about your main priority for window treatments. Do you want to keep out the summer heat, maintain your privacy, or create the perfect blackout environment for a good night’s sleep?

You can choose between shutters, shades and blinds to find the right solution. If you’re not sure what to go for, look into transitional shades, which can be adjusted to let in different light levels.

#3 Horizontal and vertical shades

When you have a window treatment installed, you can choose between horizontal and vertical controls. Horizontal shades move across the window from side to side, while vertical shades roll down from the top. Vertical blinds are usually best for very tall or large windows. Horizontal blinds are best for small or narrow windows.

#4 Cordless and automatic shades

With modern technology, you can control your blinds at the touch of a button – or even with a smart speaker! Some people prefer the look and feel of shades with cords, while others love the convenience of motorized blinds. You should also look into cordless shades if you have young children or pets who could get tangled up in a cord.
