At Georgia Blinds & Interiors serving the greater Atlanta area, we know that the vast selection of window fashions can be overwhelming. We want to be sure that each and every customer ends up with the right window treatment to meet their functionality, stylistic, and budgetary needs. That’s why we suggest the following process to get to the right solution.
Hone in on the Right Choice
Understanding the following considerations will help you narrow down the type of treatment that will work best for your needs.
- Determine your window treatment goals. You might want privacy, an unobstructed view, protection from harmful UV rays, a new design element for a room, or insulation and energy efficiency at the window.
- Understand the challenges for your window’s shape and size. Windows come in all sizes, from standard to specialty shapes. There are window coverings that work best for horizontal and those for patio or sliding doors. Depending on your design style, you can find ways to coordinate or match window treatments across rooms. For example, if you want to have only horizontal window coverings throughout your home, you can put a split headrail on your sliding door so your window covering can operate independently, leaving the door opening available when needed and the glass side down for filtering light.
- Determine how you want the window fashion to function. Some window treatments lift, some tilt, and some simply slide from side to side (such as draperies). Blinds and shutters are considered tilters because, for the most part you are only adjusting for the amount of light entering the room. Shades are considered lifters because you don’t have the ability to rotate them open or closed. They are either up or down. One great feature for a shade that adds more functionality is called top-down/bottom-up operation, which allows you to adjust light from the top or bottom or both.
