Window treatments are one of the most overlooked home improvement project. There is a reason that you see so many homes with beautiful draperies, shutters, and blinds in magazines – they can add value to your home! They also help protect your furniture from damage caused by children or pets. Window treatments have lots of other benefits too, such as reducing noise pollution and blocking out harsh sunlight that might cause sleeping problems for some people. In this blog post, we will discuss three different types of window treatments: drapes, shutters, and blinds.
Drapes: Drapes are usually hung from a rod that is mounted on the wall, and they cover your window like curtains. They can be made of cotton, silk, wool, or even velvet to match your decorating style! Curtain panels allow you to offer privacy by dividing up the available space into smaller sections. Drapes are a great choice because they come in a variety of styles, textures, and colors to match your home design. It works really well in a room with a view. Because it also will accent and frame the view, drapery can add flair as well. It is also a great way to add more visual height to a room. That’s because floor to ceiling draperies make the room look taller than it really is, making a smaller room much more appealing and spacious.
Shutters: Shutters are the premier interior window covering. Tropical View Shutters supplies only the best shutters available in both poly and wood. Shutters can be mounted either inside the window frame (known as internal mount) or outside the window frame (outside mount). An outside mount shutter will make a window appear larger, and is a great way to accent a scenic view outside. Shutters are a beautiful way to keep out harsh rays in the summer while adding an elegant touch to your home.
Blinds: Blinds are another choice for homeowners looking to provide some privacy while still having light enter the room. They come in a variety of different shapes, colors, and textures so it’s easy to find one that matches your style–whether you’re looking for something ultra-modern or more traditional. Blinds are made out of vinyl, wood, aluminum, and polyester. Unlike the builder grade blinds found today in most new subdivision homes, or the blinds one can purchase from the big box stores, our blinds are designed to provide many years of use without the fear or hassle of having to replace them every three or four years due to the blinds sagging, warping, or quickly discoloring.
Valances and cafe curtains: These will also do wonders to make your home look more beautiful. Valances are a woven fabric that attaches to the overtop of the window frame, while cafe curtains hang from inside or outside the window frame and typically come in lengths up to five feet long so they can be easily layered for full coverage.
