How To Narrow Window Treatment Choices

Steps to Narrow Your Window Treatment Options

From the variety of styles and fabrics to the choices about operating systems and function, window treatment buyers have a lot to think about. At Window VanGo serving Baltimore, our trained consultants can help you with that process. But if you’d like to have it even more narrowed before you talk to one of them, here are some steps that might help.

  1. Decide where you want your eye to go in the room—to the window or somewhere else? By putting color on the window treatment, it becomes the focal point in the room, and that is what your eye goes to first. If, on the other hand, you have lots of accessories, lamps, color, and good stuff going on in the room, receding the treatment by using neutral colors and soft textures would be the way to go.
  2. Think about whether you want the treatment to open side to side or up and down. Side-to-side window treatments can’t totally disappear—they end up either on one or both sides of the window. If you have children or pets, this might not be your best option. Treatments that open up and down can be raised, stacked on the window, or hidden under a valance.
  3. Consider your window treatment’s role with light. If you’re very sensitive to light, you might want it to be diffused, which creates a soft light with neither the intensity nor the glare of direct light. It is softer and does not cast harsh shadows. Deflected light is harsh and can be hard on the aging eye; however, it can be softened with draperies.

Once you’ve figured out some of the function of your window treatments, your next step is to shop. You can either go to showroom or have a consultant come to your home. If you go to a showroom, you can see, touch, and operate a variety of window treatments in a comfortable and inviting environment. If you are short on time or prefer to have the window treatment specialist come to your home, that works too—plus, you’ll get to see the samples in your window to get a feel for how the textures and colors will look. Either way you shop, you will be treated with professionalism and courtesy at Windo VanGo. We look forward to working with you!
