How to Pick the Right Window Treatment for Your Home

Leaving your windows bare can help showcase their unique features, but this look isn’t for everyone. For instance, people with energy-efficiency and privacy concerns may not appreciate the openness of uncovered windows. Read on as Handyman Connection® of Alpharetta discusses the different types of window treatments to consider. 

Blinds

This type of window treatment is arranged in slats and is usually made of wood or metal. Blinds, however, can do little to improve your home’s aesthetics; they are better in providing privacy and controlling the amount of daylight that passes through your windows.

Shades

Window shades come in three types: the roller, Roman and cellular. The first variant pulls down from a valance, which appears like a wrapping paper. Roman shades, on the other hand, cascade in elegant folds, similar to drapery panels. Lastly, the cellular or honeycomb shades have pleated chambers that block air and provide insulation.

Curtains

With the variety of styles, patterns and colors available, choosing the perfect curtains for your home can be challenging. The trick: pick a curtain that can complement your home’s design. Note, however, that sunlight can fade fabrics over time, so it’s better to invest in curtains that have subtle tones.

Shutters

For a more traditional look, choose window shutters as your primary window treatment. They are perfect for coastal, cottage, country and rustic rooms because they are usually made of wood in neutral tones.

Sheers

Unlike other window treatments, sheers do little to regulate sunlight and privacy. They are often layered over blinds and shutters to add a flowing element to these hard window treatments. They can also provide a dainty charm and airy vibe because they are made of thin fabrics.
