Whenever you’re shopping for new shades or blinds for your home, you want to go into the purchase informed. The bright side of custom window coverings is that you have a lot of choices! The downside, though, can often be the same. if you go in feeling overwhelmed or underinformed, it can make the process less fun than it should be. When you start your shopping journey, be sure to ask questions so you feel knowledgeable. These are three questions that we definitely recommend.
What Are The Benefits Of Different Types Of Shades?
There are many different styles and types of shades. And while having those different options for different needs and aesthetics is great, you’ll probably want to know more about each kind. Depending on your home’s style and the particular needs of your room, one type of shade may work better than the others. For example, cellular shades with a honeycomb structure are great at insulation and so work well with larger windows. Roller shades, on the other hand, work with more minimal design choices.
What Additional Costs Should I Consider?
You want to make sure your budget stays on track, so don’t just look at the base price. Make sure you’re well informed about the different costs of varying materials and style choices. You also should get an estimate on installation costs, particularly if any custom measuring or hanging needs to be done.
What Is My Expected Maintenance?
Different types and materials of shades have different levels of maintenance. Be sure you’re getting shades that align with your expectations when it comes to regular cleaning, longevity, etc. If you have small children or pets, for example, you might want to consider the most durable and easy-to-clean option.
