How do I know which window treatment to use? Please help!

submitted by Made In The Shade

Choosing between different window treatments is a matter of taste. It helps to be familiar with the differences, options for your windows, and overall interior design.  

BASICS OF BLINDS – Composed of slats that can be tilted for privacy, and to vary the amount of light entering a room. We carry all popular blinds. We have wood and faux-wood blinds, with no route holes for the cord, offering a cleaner look, improved privacy, and more light control. Choose: smooth, for a clean aesthetic; textured, for a softer, fabric-like look; embossed and wood-like, for a stylish touch. Low maintenance makes them perfect for kitchens and bathrooms.

ESSENTIALS OF SHADES – Consisting of fabric that pulls up and down with a cord, cordless lift system, or motorization. Unlike blinds, shades are solid fabric. There’s a style of shade for every decorating theme. Along with the functions of blocking light and providing privacy, shades are a simple way to add color, texture, and pattern to your room. You can add style by topping your shades with a valance or cornice.  Popular shades are Roller Shades, Roman Shades, Dual Shades, and Cellular Shades.

STANDARDS OF SHUTTERS – Made of horizontal louvers built around vertical stiles and horizontal rails.  Shutters can have a variety of frame styles.  We carry wood and composite shutters and even waterproof shutters for showers.   Shutters are easy to clean, making them perfect for high-traffic areas; they are beautiful in modern and traditional homes.  We have motorized shutters for hard-to-reach areas.
