They help color, charm, and a sense of style to a room. They can work as the finishing touch on an already beautiful home.

Customized Window Coverings

Why You Should Opt for Customized Window Coverings

Compared to standard window treatments, custom window coverings not only help complement the shapes and sizes of your windows but can help you meet your unique needs. Interior designs are often complemented by the small touches in a room. This includes drapes, shades, blinds, and shutters. In addition to giving you that extra pop in color and look, customized window coverings allow you to retain full control over the size, style, and personalization you need for each room.

For example, if you have kids or pets that are always getting into things and pulling on items, child-friendly window treatments are a great and safe option. You can utilize cordless or motorized choices to ensure that nobody gets hurt while maintaining the sleek look of your blinds or shades.

Double-Hung Windows: The Most Popular Window Style

Double-hung windows are one of the most popular window styles chosen by homeowners if not the most popularly recognized. Designed with two frame units that surround glass panels, the units slide up and down on vertical tracks. This window style is most commonly found in traditional and modern homes, as the two parallel frames give the window a sense of structure. Double-hung windows are often customizable, making them a popular and trendy option.

The style gained traction due to its classic look and remains a popular choice due to its energy efficiency.
