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.

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... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
