Narrowing Your Window Treatment Selection

Banded Shades

At Windo VanGo serving the greater Baltimore area, we know that shopping for window treatments can be daunting—there are so many to choose from, with numerous features and benefits. However, we also know that it can be fairly easy to narrow your options by simply asking yourself a few questions to really get to the heart of your window treatment goals. Read on to learn more!

Determining Your Window Treatment Goals

You might be looking to treat one window, or you might have needs for several. Be aware that each one will be different—for a south-facing window, you might need UV protection; for a west-facing window, you might want light control; for a first-floor, street-facing window, you might need to improve privacy. If you’re looking to improve your energy bills, you might want insulation at the window, and for all rooms, you might be looking to get a facelift for your décor. Think about the main needs of each window you’re treating, and that will help determine the type of treatment you’ll need.

Window Size or Shape

You window might be a standard rectangular shape or it might be a specialty shape such as an arch, a circle, or an octagon. You might have a window that is oriented horizontally or one that is oriented vertically. No matter the shape or orientation, you’ll be able to find the right covering—and in many instances, will be able to coordinate it with other treatments in the room or house. For example, if you want to have only horizontal window coverings, you can put a split headrail on your sliding door so your window covering can operate independently, leaving the door opening available when needed and the glass side down for filtering light. Specialty shapes work best with honeycomb shades, wood blinds, or shutters.
