When it comes to decorating your home, what do you think of first? Is it new furniture, a fresh coat of paint on the walls, what kind of floor will suit you best? It’s easy to be overwhelmed, and you may not think about a detail that affects a lot more than just the aesthetic appeal of your space – window treatments are so important to the functionality as well as style of your home. The first step to finding the right window treatment options for your home is knowing the differences in what we offer.
Blinds carry the benefit of coming in many varieties of material, offering a wide range of prices to suit every budget. Aluminum and vinyl or blinds tend to be more affordable, and wooden blinds fall under a more expensive category – but these options give you a freedom with how your windows fit into your home decor. The amount of light blocked also varies among types of blinds, so keep this in mind if you’re looking for window coverings to provide complete privacy. Often, people choose to use curtains in addition to blinds to ensure a more opaque covering for security. Blinds can also come in vertical or horizontal slat options, ensuring that you can find blinds to suit your needs.
Shades are a window covering that offer possibilities different entirely from any other window covering. Shades are a fabric covering that can be opened to all light in, or close to shut out light completely, if the fabric is dark or thick enough. Like blinds, shades vary widely in material and price point – so there’s something for every home and design style.
Shutters are an excellent choice for a home with hardwood floors or other wooden decor, as they can be painted or stained to match the woodwork you already have. Shutters are high end and elegant in appearance, and offer the flexibility of partial or entirely blocked light. Wooden shutters are durable and dependable, and oftentimes can add value to your home.
