What to Consider
Before Ordering Window Blinds
Figuring out what you care about when it comes to window treatments is key. Here are a few of the most common traits that people want in their window blinds and shades:
We agree that all these features are VERY important, and that's why we are going to help you find the perfect window treatment that makes sense under each category.
Getting tired of the blinding light entering your home, creating horrible TV glare and bleaching your furniture and carpet? Yeah, we thought you might be. There are oodles (yes, oodles) of window blinds and shades that can help you with this.
Some things to consider, though, before you dive right in:
Do you want light filtering or blackout window treatments?
Light filtering window treatments would be perfect if you still like a comfortable amount of light coming into your home. This type of light control is perfect for rooms like kitchens and dining rooms. Blackout treatments, in comparison, actually block out the majority or all of light entering a room – meaning you can sleep in or watch your movie in peace.
Do you want operable slats or no?
Why does this matter, you may ask? Well, shades, like cellular shades, only allow a clear view when the shade is completely raised, while blinds, like wood blinds, allow you to tilt the slat of the blind to view outside (as well as let more light in). You'll need to decide how you prefer to operate your window treatments before you start seriously shopping.
