Top Six Reasons You Should Choose Custom Window Treatments

Updated: Oct 27, 2021

When it comes to choosing the decor for your windows, there are so many options to choose from. Custom window treatments offer so many benefits like achieving a look that will coordinate with the rest of your decor, a custom color, and shades or blinds that fit your windows perfectly for a classic look.

1. Multiple Design Options

With custom-made window treatments, you have the option of choosing from an extensive range of colors, textures, materials, and finishes giving you an endless number of design combinations. Without a doubt, you’ll be able to find a custom window treatment that suits your style and personality perfectly.

You can be assured that when you purchase custom window treatments, the designer will work with you to make sure that your project turns out exactly the way you envisioned.

Ready-made window treatments lack variety and often have limited colors and styles available. For example, if you decided you want plantation blinds, there won’t be as many color or material choices. You’re often stuck with what they have after everything has been picked over. They most likely won’t have the color or size you need and it’s a complete waste of money.

2. Custom Colors

If you’re trying to decide between a DIY design or a professionally installed custom design, the difference is like night and day. You would have to buy all the materials, measure the windows (leaving enough room for the top mechanisms) properly, and hope you don’t end up with something that looks like a hot mess when you’re done.

Custom window treatments give you all the control over color, style, texture, and fit, but with the guarantee that you’ll end up with something you’ll love. Designers are experienced in all phases of window treatments such as shades, blinds, shutters, and more. You’ll get a professional installation, your choice of color, style, and a perfect fit, even for odd-shaped windows.

Design companies source their materials from a variety of vendors, so if something isn’t available in the color you want, they have a list of sources they can check to find exactly what you want. Some companies will even dye fabric to your desired color.

3. Energy Efficiency

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, the average home loses roughly 30% of its heat through its windows. Likewise in the summer, when you run your AC, 76% of the sunlight coming through the windows becomes heat. Your HVAC system is fighting a losing battle.

Window treatments significantly reduce the amount of energy lost through windows and helps keep your home at an even, comfortable temperature.

Different types of window treatments reduce energy usage more than others, and some are better as a seasonal look than others. Vertical blinds are more effective at reducing sunlight during the summer, and you can control how much sunlight to let into the room. Positioning the blinds just right allows you to have light but without the glare and heat. The drawback though is that they do not insulate against the cold or keep heat in.

4. Privacy

Privacy is something that everyone needs, no matter how well you get along with your neighbors. If you happen to have a nosy neighbor, it’s nice to know they can’t see into your windows at night when the lights are on. You can open the shades or blinds during the day to enjoy the beautiful view, and close them at night to have some time to yourself. Window treatments allow you to control your environment and have privacy whenever you want.

5. Precise Window Measurements

When you buy window treatments from a retail chain, you’re stuck with the sizes they have in stock. This leads to ill-fitting coverings that don’t control the desired amount of sunlight properly.

5. Precise Window Measurements

Buying shades or blinds from a retail store means you’re limited to what stock they have on hand. You won’t likely get the right fit, as you can only choose from the sizes they have. If the fit isn’t right you may have an awkward gap between the shade and the window, and it will not look as nice as a professional install.

One of the best reasons to get custom window coverings is to get the perfect fit, no matter what size windows you have.

6. Professional Installation

Having a professional window treatment specialist is like having your own interior designer. A professional works with your home’s aesthetic to show you complementary window coverings that work for your decor.

Professional Installation

When you have custom window treatments installed by a professional, it’s like having a designer come right to your door. They will measure your windows for an exact fit, discuss colors with you and suggest styles that would be appropriate, and showcase your home's best features.

If you want something that will block the heat and save energy, they can suggest shades with insulating qualities. They’ll also educate you on all your available options, suggest fabric styles, and colors that will complement the decor of the room.
