When many people think about window treatments, they think it will be an easy decision to choose between blinds or curtains for their home. However, at Blinds Express & More, we recommend that our High Desert customers consider various factors about their personal life, their preferences and their budget before making their final decision. When an Apple Valley homeowner decides to look into his or her customized window treatment options, it’s important to make a well-balanced and informed decision.
Things to Consider Before a Window Treatment
InteriorThink about the interior design of the room, and consider what window treatment would best complement your vision for the room. If you are decorating a formal living room, you will probably want to choose something regal like drapes or curtains for the room.
If you are updating your kitchen, you might want to pick out wood blinds that complement your counter tops. Your window treatments are a significant accent in your room, so you will want to think about the big picture before making this decision.
DirectionConsider the direction of the windows, and how much sunlight the room will receive once treatments are installed. If the room will be getting a lot of natural sunlight, you might want to find some blinds that will provide you with shade during the late afternoon hours. This will help keep your room cool and comfortable. If you do not receive a lot of sunlight, you will want to choose blinds that let in as much natural light as possible in order to keep the room bright and cheery.
PracticalityDon’t forget that your window treatments are practical, and provide you with privacy and security in your home. People can see easily into your windows, so you will want to choose treatments that make you feel safe and secure in your home. Blinds that easily open and close allow you to enjoy sunlight during the day, but privacy once it is dark outside.
BudgetKeep your budget at the forefront of your mind when making your selections. You don’t necessarily have to choose a luxury window treatment option in order to get stunning results in your home. Our design experts can help you choose a window treatment option that fits within your budget but still looks amazing in your house. We offer many different high-quality options at all different price points.
Remember that all window treatments require maintenance. Vertical blinds are relatively low-maintenance, and only have to be dusted on occasion. However, large fabric drapes can require more maintenance. It’s important to consider how much maintenance you want to provide for your window treatments before making your selection.
