What to Consider When Shopping for New Window Treatments

window2Arjay’s offers tons of window treatments to choose from, but there are plenty of times that people walk in thinking they have an idea of what they want, and then don’t realize how many styles there are to choose from. If you are in the market for a nice new set of window treatments, then there are a few things that you should consider before you stop into the showroom and commit to a style.

Window Size

This is something that you are immediately going to want to consider when you are looking into window treatments. This will have a huge affect on the type of coverings that look great, provide enough coverage and fit well. While there are windows that every style of window treatment will work for, there are some blinds that are too small or too big for certain ones. For instance, a window that is exceptionally narrow might not be the best fit for mini blinds. Or vertical blinds may look extremely clustered when in this small of a space. On the other hand, windows that are extremely large might look absolutely ridiculous with mini blinds or require quite a few sets of blinds in order to fully cover. All of these are important notes to make.

Window Location

Depending on where your windows are located, there are styles that you may want to choose instead of others. This could be because they are high up and would be difficult to maneuver or because they are somewhere that gets more sun than other parts of the house. Factors like these could change the styles that you use or could even determine whether or not you want to add various styles of window coverings to a room or whether there is one that can provide you with everything that you need to have functionality, privacy, and aesthetics taken care of.

When you have windows that are too hard to reach or that you need extra functionality for, you may want to consider mechanical blinds, which may only come in certain styles. If you are looking at a certain style, you can ask our team whether or not mechanical styles are an option for that specific type, and if not, what styles would be similar to that style. Otherwise, we can provide other options that you might want to look into while you determine which of these styles will give you everything that you want in your blinds, and still provide you with the same usability that will allow for you to make the most of your window treatments.

Stopping into the showroom isn’t a horrible thing to do. It really can expose you to all of the different styles that are out there so that you can come to a conclusion with what you want in regards to style, color, texture, and feel. Stop by Arjay’s Window Fashions and let us help you order the perfect style for your home.
