Buying New Window Treatments? Remember To Do These Things First

Although they add a lot of style to your home, sometimes shopping for the right window treatments can be more taxing than fulfilling. It's for this reason that it's good to know what to do before you choose your next blinds, shades or drapes.

Here are a few things to keep in mind for yourself when you're on the hunt for new window treatments to light up your living room.

Know what kind of window treatments you're looking for

Before you begin your search for which window treatments offer the most aesthetic for your home, it's a good idea to think about what kind of window treatments you want. After all, not every drape, blind, shade (cellular, roller, roman), or shutter is created equal.

Consider how big your windows are and how much sunlight they offer. Wood blinds or cellular shades may work best for smaller or slimmer windows whereas long draperies or roller shades may work best for larger windows.

Carefully consider your fabrics

After giving some thought to what kind of window treatments you want for your home, it's good to think about what types of fabric will work best. The fabric of your window treatments makes just as big an impact on your space as the type of treatments.

That said, consider the other fabrics you have in your space and how the fabric of the window treatments will interact with them. While some fabrics offer elegance, others create a sense of coziness.

Know where to shop for your window treatments

You might be able to find drapes in the store or online, but buying window treatments from just any source can be a recipe for disaster. Window treatments that you think will look gorgeous can end up being oversized for your window or won't function the way you think.

Instead, go for options that allow you to customize your window treatments so they fit perfectly with your personal taste, décor and your windows.

Are you looking for custom shades for your home?

Most homeowners often choose to replace their window treatments every seven to eight years. If your own window treatments are beginning to look a little worse for wear, consider opting in for custom blinds, shades or drapes.
