Window Treatments For New Home
Moving into a new home can be overwhelming, whether it’s a brand new home or an existing home. One of the many things that can be overwhelming is that you have to get window treatments for the whole house. Where do you start? Which room do you do first?
Of course, some of you will have the budget to do the whole house at once. Many people tackle this project more slowly, one area at a time or one room at a time. It’s up to you which rooms you do first, but here is what we recommend:
1. Privacy first.
The very first thing you should do is to consider your privacy needs. Does your new house have bathrooms with windows? You will want window treatments for those quickly! Same goes for bedrooms, especially children’s bedrooms. Wherever you absolutely need to have privacy, you want to address those areas first.
2. Light control.
If you find that you have a window that lets the sunlight beam down on you, maybe in your master bedroom or living area, that makes the room uncomfortably hot or puts too much glare on the TV, you want to find ways to control that sunlight. This may not be an area where you need privacy, but it’s an area where the light is just too strong to bear.
3. First Impressions.
After your privacy and light control needs are taken care of, the next thing to consider are the areas that will make the first impression when someone walks into your house. Maybe that will mean adding beautiful shutters to the front of your house. Or if you have large windows that can be seen from the front door, add some beautiful window treatments there so your house looks fantastic when people walk in.
Now that you have the main window covering issues addressed you can think about upgrading the window treatments in the rest of your house to something beautiful. There’s certainly nothing wrong with blinds or shades, but many people use those for awhile and then upgrade to plantation shutters or motorized shades, etc. If you have existing window treatments now and everything is functionally fine as far as privacy and light control, now it’s time to get what you absolutely want. We can bring samples of all our products out to your home, so we can see what’s best for you and you can see how they would actually look on your walls and in your lighting. We are more than happy to sit down with you and your spouse to show you what we have to offer!
We hope this helps in piecing together your home’s window treatments, and we look forward to serving you.
