Curtains or Drapes

You have several choices in what you can use to cover your windows. Drapes and curtains come in a variety of shades, designs, lengths and textures. It would be very easy to find drapes and curtains that went well with your room’s motif. Some curtains also have unique features that block the sun. Curtains can be as transparent as you wish. For the “greenest” option, blackout curtains are available. These curtains completely block out the sun’s heat and light from your room, saving on unnecessary cooling costs. To get best results with blackout curtains, have a professional measure the area to be covered. Many people opt for another window treatment such as blinds or a shade underneath the curtains. 

Blinds

Blinds are another option you may choose. They may come with horizontal slats or vertical slats. Most of them have a pull cord that opens the slats when twisted and opens the entire blind when pulled. When you are considering which blinds to buy, remember, ones that are of lower quality usually don't hold up as well as custom blinds. Flimsy blind slats will twist, tear off and stain. Many companies sell blinds of a much higher quality that look great for years. A home improvement professional will measure your window and install blinds that fit perfectly for your unique window. Try window blinds that are made of wood for a dramatic effect.

Shades

Other types of blinds are often referred to as shades. The roll-up shade rolls up to close similar to a scroll. The Roman shade has become more popular lately. This shade folds up onto itself to close. It is possible to hire a professional to make and install your fabric shades. When choosing your fabric for the Roman shade, remember that it is okay for window treatments to be your accent color rather than the dominant colors of the room.

If you know your options, you will have no trouble choosing the right window treatment for your home. Hiring a professional to install your window treatments ensures that they are a beautiful and functional investment.
