Serving Naples and the Southwest Florida area for over 30 years, our window treatment professional at Perfect Fit Window Fashions can answer any questions you have. To get you started, we’ve answered some common questions below to get you on the right track. Consider it a crash course in window treatment basics to help you become a well-informed shopper.
What are “Window Treatments”?
Window treatments cover the inside of your windows. The terms window treatments, window coverings, window fashions, and window dressings pretty much mean the same thing. Sometimes, window coverings can also refer to exterior coverings such as exterior shutters and awnings, but for the most part you can use all these terms interchangeably.
What are the Different Window Treatment Types?
Within the overarching topic of window treatments are specific window treatment types. These include blinds, shutters, shades, sheers, and shadings. Custom drapery and curtains are also types of window treatments. Within each of those window treatment types, there are many varieties with differing qualities. Your best bet to determine what window treatment type you like best is to explore our site in more detail, visit our showroom, or schedule an in-home consultation.
How do Window Treatments Control Light and Privacy?
Light control is blocking and allowing in the amount of light you prefer for a particular window. Unless you have a very specific need, such as complete blackout light blocking in a bedroom, every window treatment type provides some light control. Each window treatment option controls light differently, and also impacts the privacy you need in a room. For example, blinds offer flexibility in the amount of light blocked and the privacy offered by simply opening and closing the slats. This operation is simple and reliable but tends to offer only light or privacy, not both at the same time. Honeycomb shades, on the other hand, offer privacy while allowing light in.
How Do Window Treatments Fit with Home Decor?
How your window treatments function is important, but so is how they look. After all, you’ll be living with your window treatments for years. The right window treatments not only complement your decor, but can even be a visual focus or key component of a room. You may have an eye for interior design and know exactly what you’re looking for. Or, you may need some help choosing the type, style, color, and material of your window treatments. Here at Perfect Fit Window Fashions, we provide personalized service based on each customer’s specific needs. We’ll help you find the perfect window treatment for your room decor, functional needs, and budget.
