Practical Tips For Picking The Perfect Window Treatments
You would think that choosing the right window treatments for your Baton Rouge home would be easy. Pick out what you like and have a team of professionals take care of the installation, simple as that.
However, the truth is that there is more to it than that. And if you think the decision making is based on visual aesthetics alone, you would be wrong.
How to Make the Right Selection
Of course, looks do matter too. You just don’t want to make your final choice based just on appearance so here are some other factors to consider:
- Do not overlook the importance of having a budget and staying within the parameters of a budget. It is easy to end up spending too much which is why it is a good idea to have a financial plan, as well as a set of boundaries. The good news is that there is usually a cost-effective alternative to something outside your budget. For instance, faux wood blinds work just as well as real wood blinds if you need to reduce the expense.
- Do you also want something that helps make your home more energy-efficient? If so, it makes sense to opt for shutters or cellular shades, both known for offering a level of insulation. Window treatments that offer better insulation help reduce heating and cooling costs, as well as make your household more Eco-friendly.
- Do you want the same uniform look in each room or for each area to have its own unique look? Some homeowners like functional window treatments that do not detract from the focal point of the room. Others don’t mind if the shutters, shades, blinds or drapes become part of the focal point.
- How important are privacy and the ability to have light control? Too often, homeowners make the selection based on looks and end up with something sheer. While that is ideal for letting in natural light and looking visually appealing, it also provides basically no ability to control the amount of light that comes in or how much privacy you have.
