Choice Of Blinds Or Curtains

Installing Window Dressings: Curtains, Sheers, Blinds?

You have just moved houses and are now looking forward to a comfortable new life. When you reflect on the events leading to and after completing the move, you sigh. All the same, you are glad that it went well. The moving company was supportive, and you had planned the event well in advance. As you start unpacking, arranging furniture, hanging clothes and laying carpets you notice that your windows look naked. Apart from the bare windows not being glamorous, your privacy is at stake. To redeem yourself, you need window treatments, and there are many options available.

A choice of blinds or curtains

To decide on the most appropriate option, consider the design you want. If you are going to limit light penetration, blinds are ideal for that. Do choose curtains that have stylish prints and colors. Where the house you moved to sits in such a way that the bedroom window faces the neighbor’s property directly, both curtains and blinds are a befitting option.

Shutters are also stylish

Among the styles available are full, half café and solid. These three go well with bedrooms where your privacy is the highest priority. For the bathroom, vinyl shutters are a perfect choice. They are waterproof and hence suitable for a wet environment. If your budget allows, crafted designs can give you that expensive look.

Suitable For The Kitchen And Bathroom

Bathroom and kitchen

Blinds, especially the Venetian type, are suitable for the kitchen and bathroom. You can choose from wood, plastic or metal. They allow you the freedom to tilt in a way that lets in less or additional light into a room. Besides, if you need a little more privacy, blinds are the way to go. Another advantage is that you can clean them with ease.

Pick your style

Blinds limit your options when it comes to colors. However, concerning materials and size, there are no restrictions. If you opt for contemporary styles, pick wide slats of plastic or bamboo. For a classic look, plantation shutters are perfect. As a curtains enthusiast, go for patterns and colors that blend in with your carpets and furniture.

Take accurate measurements

Using a measuring tape, find the length and height of the window dressing you intend to install. You can step on a stool or use a ladder to reach the top. Leave an allowance for the bracket or curtain holder. At the same time, stretch the width of the window shade to a few inches beyond the frame.

Now that you have finished the moving project, you must cover the windows to bring modesty and privacy to your home. Blinds, curtains, and shutters are three options that can fit your budget. Let style, functionality, durability, and of course, budget guide your choices. Remember to take proper measurements of the windows that you need to cover. Also, seek help from window installation technicians nearby or install them yourself. You should own the relevant tools for the latter. Later, as you settle down, you can think of other personalized options.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And my choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to A1 Auto Transport. From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them.

After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.

Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.

By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.

We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
