Shopping for window treatments is an exercise in making all kinds of choices, from the style and look of the treatment to how you want to operate it. And if you’re new to the process, that could be a little overwhelming. At Treasure Coast Window Fashions serving Jupiter, Florida, we want to make the process as painless as possible, and that starts with teaching everyone the basics about window treatments. Read on to learn more!
Deciding Between Blinds, Shades, and Shutters
All window treatments offer different benefits, and they vary mostly in how they work. The main types of treatments are:
- Blinds. Made with slat construction, blinds work well in both horizontal and vertical openings as well as in specialty shapes. Because of the cord holes inherent to their construction, blinds don’t completely block out light. However, you can purchase them with a feature that eliminates cord holes, such as the Hunter Douglas de-Light™ feature. 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. Offering fashionable design, energy efficiency, sun protection, room-darkening features, and privacy, shades work well in both horizontal and vertical openings as well as in specialty shapes. You can choose from fabrics in a range from man-made materials to natural sustainable materials like bamboo, reeds, or grasses. Shades are available in the widest selection of colors, styles, textures, and options.
- Shutters. Both traditional and modern, shutters pair well with most décor styles. Although they are generally the most expensive of the three window treatment types, they can also help increase the value of your home. Shutters are available in hardwood, faux wood, and vinyl as well as in an array of colors, textures, and slat options.
Hunter Douglas offers an array of lift systems to suit a variety of needs. From standard traditional operating systems to the ultimate in convenience, motorization, you’ll be able to choose the operating system that works for you, whether you need something cordless for child and pet safety or you need something for a hard-to-reach window. For example, UltraGlide® is a retractable cord system that lets you raise and lower your shades with no ugly, dangling external cords. PowerView® motorization is a wireless operating system that can be used with a PowerView® Pebble® remote or with your mobile device or tablet, even if you’re not at home.
