Types of residential window treatments
There are several different types of residential window treatments available, and each one has its own unique design and set of benefits. To help you get started, we’ve compiled a list of window treatments we offer at Architectural Window Treatments that can benefit your home:
As the name suggests, roller shades roll down over your windows, blocking light when necessary. Our selection of roller shades spans several transparency levels, so you can get as much or as little light in a room as you need.
Honeycomb shades are named for their honeycomb-shaped profile. These specialized shades are designed to block both light and heat, and they can help boost your home’s energy efficiency.
Venetian blinds allow you to more precisely control the amount of light coming into your home. These are available in several different materials to match your home’s style, such as aluminum, wood, and faux wood.
Choosing your new window treatment
You must take a number of factors into consideration when selecting blinds or shades for your home. By analyzing these aspects of your room or home, our professionals at Architectural Window Treatments will help you choose the one that’s right for you:
Area of the house
By looking at the type of room you’re treating, we can immediately narrow down your list of best treatment options. For example, blackout blinds are popular for bedrooms, while translucent blinds may be more appropriate for the living room. We also consider what side of the house a room is on, as this impacts the amount of sunlight it’s exposed to throughout the day.
Design and style
Good window treatments must complement the other design elements of your home. When performing your consultation, we’ll account for your flooring, wall color, and furniture to help you select the best designs and colors for your window treatment.
Automated versus manual
Many Chicago homeowners are opting for automated blinds and shades instead of the traditional manually-operated ones. Installing automated window treatments in your home can help simplify light control through time-triggered adjustments and let you easily raise and lower blinds in hard-to-reach areas.
