There are many elements that influence choosing the right window treatments for your home, and plenty of opportunities to get things wrong. If you aren’t well-versed in the world of window coverings, it’s easy to be led astray. Read on so you don’t fall victim to one of these myths!
From sheer to blackout, window coverings come in a variety of opacity. Room darkening window treatments are a blessing in both bedrooms and theater rooms. When hung correctly, even room darkening treatments can be opened during the day to let in light. One of the first questions our designers will ask you during your complimentary design consultation is about your light control needs. We’ll use your answer to guide you towards the appropriate products and operating systems.
Certain window coverings will block your views, but Drapery Street carries a variety of products that do not. Shades like Hunter Douglas Silhouette’s offer privacy AND a clear view of your property, even when your shades are pulled down. If maintaining your views is important to you, be sure to tell our designers, so they can help you find the right solution.
Minimalist design is sweeping the country, and with it comes the belief that window treatments must be avoided to achieve this aesthetic. Don’t skip window treatments – and all the advantages they offer like privacy and energy efficiency – for the sake of design when you can have both! It is possible to achieve clean lines and lots of natural light with the right window treatments, operating system, and installation methods.
