When it comes to windows, we got you covered
Selecting the Right Window Treatments
When selecting window coverings for your new home, the options, styles, types, and price ranges may be a bit overwhelming. Luckily, your Design Consultant is trained to provide you with enough information to help you make the right choice for your lifestyle and needs. Our window coverings selections can be divided into three main categories with almost limitless variations and choices within each main category:
Fabric or Roller Shades
These generally offer complete window coverage. Most roller shades are made of vinyl or fabric that is usually opaque, while fabric shades (like Roman or balloon) are lined and custom made to your exact window measurements. Fabric shades are found in flat Roman style, balloon, Austrian, bottom-arched, pleated, and flat panels, in sheers or coordinating fabrics.
Pleated and Cellular Shades (in non-sheer materials)
These have full glass coverage for privacy. Many styles can be ordered with a “top down” feature, so a portion of the glass can be visible at the top of the window to let in light and have a view. Cellular Shades, also called pleated and honeycomb shades, have a clean look and come in both sheer and non-sheer materials. Some styles have eliminated the cord hardware, some have loop controls, and most have some insulating qualities.
Mini-Blinds, Wood Blinds and Shutters
These will all provide a nearly private environment. Be aware, however, that with each of these there is a small possibility of seeing through the slats at certain angles. Wood Blinds come in a variety of colors, finishes, slat sizes, and tape colors. Some are made without the typical cord holes in each slat for a cleaner look. Ask about choices for header designs and cord control options too. Natural Blinds are also called matchstick or bamboo blinds, but are available now in matchsticks, sewn slats, and other options that have a natural fabric-like appearance. You’ll find options for valances, roll or fold up operation, edge binding, and privacy liners.
