How To Choose The Best Custom Window Treatment to Fit Your Space

With all the choices out there, it can be tough to select custom window treatments that are perfect for your home. With so many options available, it can be overwhelming to know where to even begin. 

That’s why we’ve gathered a list of 4 important things to consider before purchasing custom window treatments. Read on!

4 Things To Consider Before Buying Custom Window Treatments

Styles And Colors Of Your Current Furniture

When selecting custom window treatments, it’s important to consider the styles and colors of your furniture and decor. This will help ensure that the treatment complements the overall look of your space.

For example, if you have a relaxed and comfy living room with mostly neutral tones, you may want to choose a soft roman style treatment in a coordinating color. But, if your space has a more eclectic feel with bold colors and patterns, you might opt for a statement-making drapery  in a complementary fabric.

Window Size & Shape

Arched, rectangular, and bay windows are the most common shapes. Remember that three rectangular windows are typically visible in a bay window, making them difficult to outfit. Beyond the shape of the window, think about how it opens, as that may influence your coverage choice. 

Sliding, single-hung, and double-hung windows are the most common styles found in most homes.

Sliding windows slide from side to side and are typically used for porch entries. 

Casement windows open like doors and are attached to a frame. 

Awning windows open from the bottom up, hinged at the top.

What is the Main Function of the Window Treatment?

Ask yourself, what is the purpose of the window treatment—is it style, functionality, or both? This will inform which product(s) will best cover the windows in your home.

UV blocking: Is your room flooded with light? Sure, we enjoy the sun at times, but not while we are trying to watch TV. The sun’s harmful rays can also damage artwork, furniture, and flooring. If you are interested in diffusing or blocking UV rays, you may consider blinds or shades in a room darkening fabric.

Aesthetic: Are you looking to update the look of your room without spending money on costly renovations? A fresh set of drapery panels, for example, can provide a breath of fresh air and reinvigorate a tired space. By installing them close to the ceiling, you can make the room appear taller and your windows look bigger. 

Privacy: Are your neighbors too nosy? Room darkening shades give you the ability to control the amount of light coming in as well as prevent onlookers from peeking in.

Maintenance

When considering window treatments, it’s important to evaluate the maintenance of each type. While dusting and light vacuuming will usually do the job, some materials are more delicate or prone to dirt and dust collection.
