How to Choose Window Treatments for Every RoomJune 29, 2022
If you’ve shopped window treatments for every room in your home–or even just one–you know the process can be intense. There’s a lot of decisions about details and styles. There’s the measuring, the question of coverage…it’s way too much. Unless you’re a window covering specialist. This is what we DO. We take on all the details so you can have fun with the process. Let’s talk features, which rooms where they are favored most, and get you thinking about what would work best in your own home.

Blissful Sleep: Room Darkening
The bedrooms of your home–isn’t room darkening what we’re all after? With room darkening, sleep improves. When sleep improves, life improves. There are a few features you should know more about when choosing which window coverings will work best in your home.
- LightLock™ seals out the light
- Dual shades offer levels of control
- Fabric opacities play a huge part
- Smart shades for scheduled adjustments
Did you know that it’s not just the bedrooms of the home where clients want room darkening? More and more, we are seeing media rooms popping up as a way for families to enjoy time at home together. And, with the intensity of the Texas sun, if your home has windows that get direct rays of sunshine, room darkening shades could be just the answer for blocking them out.
Comfort & Control
Many of the rooms of your home need two features: comfort and control. Bright light needs to be controlled–making it softer and filling the home, while reducing glare. Many of our sheer shade options offer just this–inviting the light in, but filtered for soft ambiance. This is a great option for rooms that change function over the course of a day, from meal times to homework sessions, or quiet morning coffee to entertaining guests in the evening.

- Open Floor Plan Spaces
The “Out of Reach” Windows
If you’ve got windows that are hard to reach, you know it. They might be high up on a wall, or tucked behind a piece of furniture. The problem with covering these is that you have to be happy with the window coverings in one position all the time. Or do you?
Have you considered adding smart shades to your home? In an instant, those window coverings that are well out of reach are now capable of adjusting at the tap of a button, or on a schedule. The rooms most likely to have hard to reach windows?
