Why You Need New Window Treatments

How do I know you need window treatments? Most people overlook the obvious and forget that windows make up a big part of our homes. Many of us just make do with less than functional and stylish window treatments to treat the special windows that shape our rooms. Not only are window treatments becoming more specialized in technology, but the fabrics, weaves, patterns and colors are frankly beaming with personality. Quality in design and function are no longer held hostage by expensive interior designers or booted to the inept and unhelpful workers at big box stores who really have zero expertise to guide you. Our website is designed to take you through each step in building the perfect window treatment for any window. All you have to do is take your measurements and start customizing. You’ll be able to see your window treatments come to life right on-screen using our Build A Blind visualizer, which will give you a realistic preview image of your blinds or shades. If you are overwhelmed or confused or just need a little advice, our design experts are professionally trained window specialists who are sitting right here with me. Many of them have been here at Blindsgalore since we started selling online in 1998. Our knowledge is deep, our history is long and our dedication is unequaled. But, more importantly, I want you to know the 6 reasons why you should invest in beautiful and useful window treatments, NOW!

Enhance Design

Window treatments complete the entire look of your home and add that last spectacular dimension to enhance a polished touch and ensure your home looks finished and comfortable. Perfect window treatments create a spaciousness and lightness and add a level of sophistication and charm.

Regulate Light

Whether you are a sun worshiper or claim the darkness, the right window treatments will regulate throughout the day and night the amount of light you need for comfort and keeping at bay the harmful rays of the sun from fading the furniture and other essential items in your house. Many different levels of light filtering liners are available if you are a gamer, a streaming movie buff or an at home “worker bee.” A dark room at night is essential for a healthy body and mind. I always recommend a black-out liner to block out annoying street lights and other disturbing lights streaming into your bedroom. Many window treatments are light filtering just by their materials. Shutters, wood or faux wood, verticals and drapery automatically regulate light when closed. Top down bottom up gives you the best of both worlds. Many more options can be found in our collection to offer you complete light blockage to a very sheer, barely there window treatment. Glare can be reduced with light filtering and a dark room for sleeping is advised with a black out liner.

Provide Privacy

Most of us still live close to people and we require privacy and safety from intruders or curious neighbors. Even though our world is becoming increasing “flat” and we share just about everything on social media, our homes should still be a sanctuary, where we can maintain a level of privacy and insulation from the cacophony of the outside noise and peering eyes. Your personal living conditions and preference will guide you to the window treatment that will match your needs with your accompanying style.

Operate Easily

Clunky, noisy window treatments are a thing of the past. Sleek motorization smoothly moves blinds and shades with just a click of the remote or pair it with any smart home device. Motorized window blinds, to my mind, are the ultimate time saving accessory in my home. I have motorized blinds on my Romans, my Solar Shades and my Cellular Shades. Hmmm. I guess that means all my shades are motorized. If that is not in your design mode, an easy lift at the bottom of most window treatments lifts and lowers the shades. Window treatments still come with cords for certain purposes, but with child and pet safety at the top of our minds, we, at Blindsgalore, recommend any of our cordless options which are practically limitless.

Save Energy

Yes, window treatments do actually help reduce your heating and cooling bills by maintaining a warmer home in the chilly months and keeping out the scorching rays of the sun during the summer months. Cellular blinds are a real workhorse when maintaining an energy efficient home. The honeycomb-structured cells are constructed of little pockets of insulation that trap the cold air from entering your home in the cold months and grab the warm air from seeping into your windows during the hotter months. What magic, plus Cellulars simply outline your windows and are chic and modern and unassuming with lots of hidden power. Solar Shades are another window treatment engineered with fabrics that block out UV rays, yet allow light to filter in, keeping your home cooler in the summer, but you can still enjoy the day long summer views and light. Of course, any window treatment that is closed during the day or night helps to keep your home energy efficient.

Keep You Stress Free

Custom window treatments fit perfectly and are easy to clean with swipe of a damp cloth or if any serious dirt build up occurs, use a lamb’s wool duster or the nozzle of a vacuum cleaner every once in a while. If a splatter of grease or crayon stain appears, scrub lightly with a little soap and water. Since you are able to customize every element of your new window coverings to exactly match your style and the specific needs of each room, all of your headaches should disappear. You can now sleep soundly, work efficiently on your computer or dose on movies, entertain easily, savor sunsets and be content that your children are safe and warm.
