Things to consider when shopping for window treatments for your space!

Whether you have bought a new home, or are looking to update your window treatments, there are many factors to consider when it comes time to selecting the right window treatments for your home. Energy efficiency, light control, privacy, personal style, and cost are all factors to keep in mind. If you are building a home and thinking of wanting home automation, consider if you want to have motorized window treatments that are hardwired or rechargeable.  

Not all rooms in your home are meant to have the same window treatments. Would you want light filtering in your bedroom, or would you prefer a blackout option? What about in your west-facing den when you are trying to watch television? Are you looking for privacy for your street-facing dining room?

Another factor to consider is the environment of the room itself. Is it a high humidity area, like a bathroom? You might want to consider faux-wood blinds or shutters made of a composite material in a space like that. How about the kitchen, where there might be the risk of food splatter?

Do you live in an older house where energy efficiency is a concern? Cellular or roller shades might be the choice for you.

What style of house do you have? Do you want something minimalist, or do you want something more elaborate? Drapery can offer options for both. There are sheer drapes that can help filter the light, there are decorative side panels that can give a room that finishing touch. Are you in a neighborhood with excessive sound? Heavy drapes can help with sound absorption. They can also help with insulation, especially when layered with cellular or roller shades.

What style of window treatments do you personally like? What reflects your own aesthetic, and the aesthetic of your home? What colors do you want to pick? Do you want to have your window treatments neutral, or do you want to be bold and pick a bright color or pattern?

Our designers can help you work through all these considerations and pick the right style for your space during your free in-home consultation!
