What’s the right Window Treatment for your home? A soft window treatments like Curtains or Draperies? Or would Blinds, Shades or Shutters – commonly called hard window treatments - be best for you and your budget? A lot depends on what you see from your windows. Do you want to highlight your view or hide what you see. Energy efficiency, durability, light control and privacy are also things to consider. Here’s a guide to help you weigh the pros and cons of each type in order to decide what best meets your needs.
Hard Window Coverings vs Soft Window Coverings
There are beautiful colors, designs, and materials to choose from in both categories, but the bottom line is this: Curtains do attract dust and dirt and long after curtains or drapes have begun to fall apart, some of the hard window coverings - particularly Shutters and a few types of blinds - will still look like new.
There are times that drapes do become a good companion when paired with another window treatment such as a timeless wood blind, an insulating cellular shade, or a stained or painted wood shutter. A drapery rod or track for curtains can be installed on the wall or on the ceiling, depending on what other kind of window treatment you are pairing them with. With proper care, most curtains can be expected to last six to eight years, while the right Shutters for example are a permanent fixture for your home and will actually last for decades, as long as you own your home and beyond.
When to Choose Blinds?
Typically hard window treatments made of movable slats that can be tilted opened or closed when the blind is lowered. The different slat sizes will result in varying degrees of privacy and light control.
Choose from Solid Wood blinds that are either painted or stained. Or consider sustainable materials like bamboo, which achieves the look of wood or Faux Wood Blinds which look and feel like wood blinds, but are less expensive. Faux Wood Blinds are best blinds for humid climates or high moisture rooms such as bathrooms and kitchens. Again, you can layer these blinds with drapery or curtains topped with a valance to add privacy and more light control.
When to Choose Shades?
These can be hard – Cellular, Honeycomb Shades and Woven Wood Shades – or of the softer type using fabrics such as Roman Shades, Roller Shades, or Solar Shades.
Most are raised or lowered by a cording system or a spring component, while top down / bottom up features maintain privacy while still letting light stream in. Shades are affordable and stylish coming in different colors, patterns, and even textures to complement and accentuate your décor.
When to Choose Shutters?
The right shutters will actually pay for themselves over time in reduced energy costs and the durability over time vs. most other products. Custom shutters help to insulate against heat, cold, and sound.
Their louvers can be closed completely to block out light, or they can be tilted to provide privacy while still allowing light and air to flow into the room. Custom shutters tailored to your windows can actually add value to your home, as some have a warranty that’s actually transferable to the next homeowner. Shutters add a timeless, traditional sophistication to any room whether used on their own or integrated with a layer of soft coverings such as drapery sheer or shading.
