Shopping for new window coverings can be overwhelming to say the least. But don’t let yourself get bogged down and frustrated! Here are some of the biggest mistakes people make so that you can avoid them in your own shopping journey.
Not Considering Lifestyle
It’s not all about aesthetics. Sometimes lifestyle needs to play a big part in your decision-making. For example, if you have pets who shed, you might want to minimize fabric options that attract hair. If you have young children, you’ll want window coverings that are easy to clean and as indestructible as possible, so you might want a roller shade over blinds that can bend.
Not Thinking About Your Window Coverings From The Outside
Your new window coverings may look perfect inside your room, but what about outside looking in? For side or back rooms, it may not matter as much. But if you are decorating a front-facing room, make sure your curtain backs look lovely or your choice of shutters or shades matches the exterior style of your home.
Forgetting Window Coverings Functionality
You might get swept up in the lovely looks of drapes or love a good roller shade, but that’s not all to consider. if you are furnishing a room that gets a lot of use and a lot of varying sunlight, you might want something that allows for details of control for letting in light. If you are decorating a bedroom, you should go for something light-blocking.
Whether your window is standard or a bit unique, you still need exact measurements. Especially with custom shades, you want to make sure you’re ordering the right sizes. Luckily, we consult and measure for you! Even if you are simply picking up some makeshift, readymade options, you need to know your measurements. Otherwise, you’ll end up with something ill-fitting that doesn’t do a great job.
