Your window design says a lot about your taste and style. Custom window treatment involves a professional measuring your window and providing a covering that precisely fits it. That way, you won't have to worry about blinds or curtains that don't fit your windows or are unable to function effectively.

Functions of window treatments

The primary function of window treatments is to provide privacy. Though windows enable you to see the outside environment, others may use them to peep into your house. Window coverings allow you to control and enjoy the amount of privacy you desire. Window treatments also enhance your home's energy efficiency. They reduce the heat loss in your house, maintaining a more comfortable temperature. In summer, they regulate the amount of sunlight getting into your house, reducing the energy you use for air conditioning. Moreover, window coverings enhance your space's aesthetics. Custom window treatments are available in an extensive range of colors, textures, and materials, enabling you to create a design combination of your choice. Whatever your style is, you are sure to find a window treatment that's a perfect fit for you. 

Types of custom window treatments

Several window treatments are available, allowing you to choose the one that best suits you. Below are elaborations on some of them.


Shades are composed of solid pieces of materials that rotate and fold when opening and closing, changing the room's lighting. They are available in several categories, like roller shades, roman shades, balloon shades, and tie-up shades. When picking a window shade, consider how often you adjust the lighting to enable you to get the most suitable option.


Standard window blinds entail fabric, wood, plastic, or metal slats. They open by allowing the slats to separate, allowing light into the room, and closing when they overlap. You open and close them manually or by using a remote control. Types of blinds include Venetian, pleated, and vertical blinds. These window coverings are extremely easy to maintain.


Shutters are hinged panels that you can fix inside or outside your window. Besides enhancing your security, privacy, and property value, they regulate your home's light and reduce external noise. Some common shutter categories include tire-on-tire, raised panel, louvered, Bahama, and cafe-style.


They are fabrics with a heavy lining that often come in pairs and block all outside light. Drapes hang from a rod through rings, hooks, grommets, or a fabric sleeve. This window treatment is perfect for the bedroom due to its blackout quality, although you can also use it in the living room and other spaces, depending on your preferences and needs.  


Curtains are fabric panels available in pairs and hang from rods above the window. They're lighter than drapes and partially block light; those with low light blockage are often called sheers. These window treatments are a popular choice for all the rooms in a house.
