Window coverings sometimes go overlooked often in the home, yet they have such tremendous impact on the mood and overall design of a space. Further, they provide light filtering and privacy. If you find yourself in the boat of “I’ve overlooked the window coverings in my home,” don’t worry. This is an easy fix.
Here in Bryn Mawr, PA, window blinds, shades, shutters, and drapes are in high demand, for several reasons. For starters, everyone needs proper privacy; it’s 2018—security is a real concern. Further, elevating the home’s aesthetic is an ever-present desire for homeowners, as is staging for resale.
The pros at Blinds & Drapery Showroom can help. We’ve been in the window treatment business for many years, so it’s our passion to outfit homes with the best of the best in window decor. Let’s break down a little about each option together.
Wood or faux wood blinds are the right choice for any room. Homeowners can choose between bright white or modern, rich stains. Of course, the faux wood options are less pricey than real hardwood—but they offer a comparable look, plus all the same benefits of vinyl: fade and rot resistance, thermal protection, environmental support (they’re 100% recyclable), and low-maintenance.
Shades come in all sorts of styles and materials. Homeowners really can create a fully personalized look indoors. These days, Roman shades are at the top of the list in popularity. They come in linen, polyester, cotton, and silk. Or, a combination of these. Other options include:
- Roller shades. Clean and classic.
- Woven shades. Natural and cozy.
- Cellular shades. Fashionable and soft.
- Pirouette® shades. Soft and sheer, contemporary.
Windows Shutters (Interior)
Just like blinds, window shutters come in both real wood and wood alternative options. This choice is timeless and beautifully constructed to boost value. When homeowners choose interior shutters, they benefit in several ways:
- Permanent addition. This enhances resale value.
- Room darkening. Shutters block out more light than most other window coverings.
- Light control and variation.
- Minimized allergens. Dust can’t linger as easily on a solid surface.
- Energy efficiency.
- Privacy and increased natural light.
Often, drapes are associated with older, regal, or Victorian-style homes, exclusively. But, drapes can be modern, too. Truthfully, drapes are just more elegant curtains; they’re heavier and typically more formal. But, they can be customized to fit any size window and work with any interior. From a simple valance to ceiling-height fabrics, drapes can be paired with shades or blinds for added depth. If drapes are your preferred choice, you’ll reap great benefits:
- Heightened elegance.
- Energy efficiency. Closed drapes during the warm months will save money on energy bills each month.
- Visual privacy.
- Sound protection. Heavy drapes actually help to keep out the noise from the neighborhood, traffic, etc.
