Blinds, shades, shutters, sheers and more. Then you have fabric options, colors, and functionality. There are a lot of things to consider when choosing window treatments for your home. To begin, it may be easiest to think of windows pertaining to a certain area of your house or room.

Privacy

Bathrooms or rooms located near street or sidewalks with a lot of traffic need more privacy than rooms that face secluded or fenced in property. Wood blinds offer a great amount of privacy and light control. 

Light Control

Sometimes you want to keep a room lively with a lot of light or in the case of a nursery, you may want to have total darkness sometimes. Shades with a dark fabric provide maximum light control.  For maximum light, sheer fabrics will provide a nice filter for sunlight and create a nice ambiance. 

Energy Consumption

Certain window treatments are designed to be another layer of insulation on windows. This can help reduce energy costs in your home. Cellular shades can trap in warm air in the winter and cool air in the summer. Insulating Roman panel shades can be an alternative for this who prefer fabric.


Room Size

If you have a smaller room, you can create the illusion of a larger space by using an above-the-casement mount for your window treatment. 

Children

 

Some window treatments can be a hazard to pets or small children. These generally only include long draperies or free dangling cords. Cordless shades are a stylish alternative for households with children. Vertical blinds also provide another option for homeowners as well.
