5 Tips for Choosing Custom Shades

Choosing the right custom shades can be a hard job. There are tons of styles, features, and options that need to be considered before you can make your choice. Let Little’s Custom Blinds and shutters, provide you with these 5 tips for choosing the right custom shades that will help make your decision easier

1. Match Your Decor

The most important thing to remember when choosing the right shade for your home, is to choose something that goes with your current home décor or to decide on a theme before you make your purchase. You do not want to buy new window treatments until you have a specific style in mind because your windows will make a huge impact on this style. For example, if you are going for a natural, homey feel in your room you don’t want to choose modern window treatments, like roller shades for your windows. This will cause a clash of styles that will not pair well together.

2. Color

Similar to making sure you compliment the overall theme of your room with the style of window treatments you choose, it is also important to consider your color choice. Your window treatment color will have an impact on the feel of your décor. White and neutral colors for window treatments will make your room feel bright and highlight your décor. Patterned or brightly colored window treatments, like a roman shade, will draw the eye to the window as a focal point of your décor. Opaque window treatments, like hardwood horizontal blinds, will make your room darker, so it essential that you decorate in a way that doesn’t make the room feel too heavy.

3. Privacy

Depending on the room that you are choosing new window treatments for, your privacy level will be important to consider. If you are choosing a room in your home that needs to be secluded, like the bedroom or bathroom, choose window treatments that are opaque. Vertical and horizontal blinds, woven woods, and cellular shades are great choices for privacy in the home.

4. Light Filtration

Consider what your room is used for before you decide on a window treatment. If you are looking for window treatments for a room that is used for many different purposes, like movies or where guests will be, the level of light filtration is key. Blackout lighting is also another option to consider for a room that needs to have filtered light at some times of the day and complete darkness during others.

5. Consider all Types of Custom Blinds

Most importantly, look at all of the custom window treatments that are available and choose a window treatment that you love. Don’t make a quick decision, weigh your options and compare features to get the best outcome. Hunter Douglas window treatments will last for many years so it is important that you choose a style the meets all of your needs.
