Looking for a quick and easy way to renovate your home, freshen up the look with new blinds, shades or shutters. With the right custom window covering treatment for your home, your room can be transformed into a brand-new look whether that be warm and cozy, elegant and formal or traditional and classic.

Fabric window coverings, such as roman shades, roller shades, sheer shades, and zebra blinds really back a punch if choosing bold patterns, textures, and colours. Contrast also provides a dramatic new room look offsetting window blinds with the opposite shades of color in the furniture or on the walls.

If you know you want a new room but not sure where to start, start with looking up rooms by room title to get a sense of what you gravitate towards online. Searching room names can be the master bedroom, ensuite, kids’ room, family room, living room, dining room, hallway, patio area, basement, recreation room, theatre room, toy room, office, etc. You will learn quickly if you are drawn towards neutral colors versus daring and outside the norm or rustic textures and pieces versus conventional decor.

Here are some first steps on things to think about when purchasing window coverings:

#1: Daylight control

Think about how this room is going to be used or if it is going to have multiple uses. This will help you to determine if light filtering blinds, room dimming shutters, or blackout honeycomb shades or roller shades will be best.

#2: Functionality

Do you need the whole window covered? Do you have neighbors nearby or road traffic or foot traffic? Can you have the top open and the bottom closed? Think about how you would benefit from the versatility of a blind. Maybe the purpose of your window covering is more decorative or to act as a valance.

#3: Would energy-efficient shutters work best?

If you are experiencing a lot of drafts or extreme heat may be reviewing energy efficient blinds and shades would reduce energy bills. Even Roman shades and honeycomb shades can be insulated with heavy or lined fabric.

#4: Light filtering versus room darkening

Review the pros and cons of light filtering versus room darkening with an expert custom window covering company to make sure you are getting the right window treatment for your new room. There are many specifications to window coverings that you can be educated about.

#5: Did you know there are blinds that can make a room quieter?

There are products on the market such as window shutters that are proven to reduce outside sounds like trains more than faux wood blinds. If one product is not enough you can even layer multiple products to increase the sound barrier. For example, honeycomb shades and California shutters or roller shades and zebra blinds.
