There’s a lot to decide when choosing new window treatments. Count on your the experts at Georgia Blinds & Interiors, serving the Buckhead, GA, area, to help you find the best blind or shade for your home. Let’s take a look at some of the choices you’ll need to make when selecting new window treatments.
Lift or Tilt?
At a very basic level, you’ll need to choose between window treatments that lift and window treatments that tilt. Consider the room location, how your windows open, and sun exposure to determine what type of window treatment will work best.
Window treatments that lift allow you to see through an unobstructed window. These window treatments can be easily lifted or slid completely out of the way. Blinds or shades in this category include: Duette or Applause Honeycomb Shades, Vertiglide Honeycomb Shades, Roman Shades, Screen Shades, Pleated Shades, and Woven Wood Shades.
Window treatments that tilt keep the window covered most of the time while light and privacy are controlled by rotating louvers open or closed. Window coverings in this category include: Plantation Shutters, Wood Blinds, Faux Wood Blinds, Vertical Blinds Aluminum Blinds, Silhouette or Nantucket Window Shadings Pirouette Window Shadings, Luminette Privacy Sheers.
What’s the Difference between Blinds & Shades
Blinds are considered a standard in window coverings because of their slat construction. They come in horizontal, vertical and specialty shaped window applications. For the most part, blinds do not block out light completely due to the route holes. An affordable window treatment, blinds come in aluminum, vinyl, wood, faux wood, and fabric in hundreds of colors, styles and options to complement any room or décor style.
Shades have become more and more popular over the years. They offer fashionable design, energy efficiency, sun protection, room-darkening features, and privacy. Available in horizontal, vertical and specialty shaped window applications, shades offer a clean soft look to fit anyone’s budget. Shade fabrics range from man-made materials to natural sustainable materials like bamboo and are available in the widest selection of colors, styles, textures, and options.
