Are you ready to buy your brand-new window treatments? From blinds to drapes to shades and more, there are not only a lot of options on the market but a lot of mistakes that can be made. Make your shopping experience easier by avoiding these common mistakes.
Sacrificing Style For Function
It can be easy to get swept up in all the aesthetics. but don’t let yourself be swayed by a style if it’s not going to function as you need it to. If you’ve got kids or pets, don’t buy something that is high maintenance. Do you want to control varying degrees of light like you can with blinds? Don’t buy roller shades. If you need light-blocking features, don’t just buy blinds. No matter the style you like, function should always come first.
Misunderstanding Measurements – Or Not Measuring At All
If there is anything that looks immediately out of place, it is window treatments that don’t quite fit. Whether you’ve got drapes that are too short or too long or curtains that look a little too skinny, those create eyesores. Nothing draws the eye faster than an ill-fitting window dressing. Make sure you know the exact height and width you need for your curtains, drapes and other treatments.
Thinking Window Treatments Are One-Size-Fits-All
Just because one style or type of window treatments work well in one room doesn’t mean you should use them for every window in your house. Different rooms have different needs – and different looks. Not taking into account the uses and vibes of the different rooms around the house can be bad. You won’t get the right kind of uses out of your window coverings and/or they simply will stick out like a sore thumb.
