Choosing Custom Window Treatment
There are many things to consider when choosing a custom window treatment. They can range from the most practical choices to the most decorative choices. But there is one important thing that should always be considered before buying a custom window covering: the size of your window. Not all custom window coverings are created equal and if you want to get the most out of them, it will help to know exactly what your options are.
As you probably know, custom window treatments come in many different sizes. Many are used as replacements for standard windows. Some fit over existing windows and some can be used as an integral part of the new installation. Here are the most common custom window sizes and what they mean for your home and your budget.
The majority of houses have standard sized windows. Most homes have windows at the ground floor level and are between seven and ten inches in length. To measure for your custom fit, measure the exterior of your window from the top to the bottom. For a double-hung window, measure the two sides of the opening between the bottom and top jutting out. For single-hung windows, measure between the top jutting and the exterior of the window.
A custom window covering that includes a series of horizontal panels along a vertical frame is called a panel. The most common types of panel window treatments are plantation shutters and accordion louvres. When choosing a custom window covering, you have to take this into consideration. It doesn’t make much sense to order a custom window covering if it’s not going to add any useful space to your room.
A custom window covering consists of two or more solid panes of glass. You can buy a wide variety of shutters in several different styles and sizes. A popular style is a louvred, flip-up type. Another popular custom window covering is a solid panel that can be opened and closed. If you are interested in adding privacy to your home, these two options are the best ones for you.
Treatments and Coating
Blinds and treatments offer another option for custom window treatments. Blinds come in several different styles and can be used as blinds or curtains depending on your needs. Blinds can be custom made from wood, plastic, or metal and many other types of materials. Blinds are an excellent choice for window coverings because they offer complete privacy without obstructing outdoor light. Some treatments are so customized that they can be used as additional pieces of furniture or decorative elements.
Shutters and treatments provide a great way to control sunlight by fully blocking out direct light and giving you the option to choose how much light comes into your room. They are also a good choice if you want to block the sun at the top of your window. There are different styles available for shutters, including vertical, horizontal, and even folding blinds. This is another option you can choose if you are not sure which type of window covering is the right one for your needs.
Prices vary depending on the materials, treatments, and the size of the window covering. Some custom window treatments can be costly because they are made-to-order. However, there are ways to keep the price within reason. Make sure you measure your windows carefully before shopping and only buy the exact size that you need. Many manufacturers offer discounts if you order more than one item, so check with your provider for details.
