Window treatments may make an enormous difference in the look and feel of any room in your Colorado Springs home. Today’s window treatments come in a countless choice of innovative products to enhance and provide functional beauty to your Colorado Springs home. From shutters and wood blinds to Silhouette shades and woven woods, the window treatments chosen may create a dramatic statement. Whether you’re updating an existing home or changing your interior design, the window treatments you select need to express your personal style.
But with so many options, narrowing down what to select may be hard. Prior to you go shopping, consider these things:
• How much privacy and light control do I require?
• What is my budget?
• Is energy efficiency important?
• Are any of the windows difficult to reach?
The amount of privacy you require is one the most important factors to consider. The kind of window treatment you select will affect how safe and secure you feel. You may achieve total privacy with shut blinds, shutters, lined woven woods, roman shades and roller shades, silhouettes, draperies and lots of additional products. But what about the Colorado Springs area home with secluded property that doesn’t require privacy? You may want to consider safeguarding your wood floors, furniture and artwork with sun screen shades or a sheer window treatment.
An uncovered window is not energy efficient: windows are holes where energy drains out of your home. But you may attain greater energy efficiency readily with high R-value window treatments such as cellular shades and shutters. Only remember to keep your window treatments shut when you’re gone from the home and at night—and watch your heating and air conditioning bills go down.
With today’s difficult real estate market, now is not the time to skimp on a major design element: the correct window treatments will add exceptional value to your home. I often tell customers that they will spend a lot time looking out their windows from inside their Colorado Springs homes, so plan carefully! Most people keep their window treatments for an average of seven to ten years, so investing in quality products will give years of beauty and style to appreciate. Prices vary from inexpensive faux wood blinds to shutters and draperies. Remember: the gap between what you really want and what you would settle for may not be much of a price difference.
The popular, hard- to-reach windows in Colorado Springs living and family rooms might appear a challenge, but specially designed extension poles or motorization make window treatments for such windows utterly convenient. Most window treatments can be motorized for a reasonable price. And sometimes such windows just require the glare of the sun blocked, which may readily be achieved with sun screen shades; if you require additional privacy, a broad range of options is available.
As a professional window treatment consultant, my job is to assist you in finding the best window treatments to suit your needs. Maybe you desire to cover your windows cleanly and simply to enhance your view outside; or possibly you want to create a dramatic statement with valances, swags or side treatments. Sometimes I advise doing both; beginning with simple window treatments and later adding the top treatments. By utilizing an in-home consultant, you may take advantage of professional expertise to coordinate the myriad products available with your walls, floors, furniture, and personal style.
