Window treatments add the perfect finishing touch to your home’s interior design. The right blinds, shades, or drapery are transformative, and instantly and easily elevate the ambiance in a room to create a polished, cohesive look. But that doesn’t mean just any window coverings will do. Often, when you buy mass-manufactured, off-the-shelf products, you have to settle for a color or size that isn’t quite right for your windows; they lack that something special. That’s why custom window treatments are the only choice for guaranteed quality and personalized service. You get to put your own stamp on these window treatments, and the results are a beautiful reflection of your unique style.

Tamara Brown, a design consultant for Stoneside Blinds and Shades, shares some tips for purchasing and installing the perfect window treatments for your home.

When you order custom blinds, shades, or drapes, you have complete control. You get to select the materials and colors that suit your home. Then, the treatments are crafted to the specific measurements of your windows so that they are an exact fit. This is, of course, important because it ensures your window coverings look their best. It’s also crucial in terms of effectiveness. Improperly measured blinds or shades leave gaps where light can get through. These gaps can be an annoyance in a bedroom where you don’t want glare coming in; too much sunlight can also lead to UV exposure that, over time, can damage interior furnishings and flooring. Those gaps also mean you don’t get as much privacy as you’d like, plus your shades and blinds lose their insulating power and decrease their energy efficiency.
