Considerations for new window coverings

When it comes to choosing custom window coverings for your home, there are many different styles and options to consider. The truth is, it can often be a daunting task to pick out the custom drapes or blinds that you will be living with for the next few years of your life. That is why it is so important for you to schedule an at-home appointment with Ruffell & Brown, as a member of our team will help walk you through the entire process, from choosing the custom window treatments to the installation.

Here are a few things you will have to consider with new window coverings:

  • Energy-saving qualities: This should be one of the most important things to keep in the back of your mind while shopping for in a new treatment. Window treatments are wonderful at making your home energy-efficient, so the insulation benefits of the various window covering products are important to keep in mind while you are shopping.
  • Fabric selection: When choosing the actual material of the drapes, you will need to be aware of how it will look with the rest of the room. If you want a style that will stand out from the furniture, you can choose a window covering that is eye-catching and will be a focal point of the room. If you don't want the treatments to be a statement piece, a more subdued tone and fabric will do nicely.
  • Privacy: The more opaque window treatments, the more control you will have over your privacy and the amount of light that enters the room. This is especially important for rooms on the first floor, or in homes that are close to their neighboring lots.
