Discover Window Treatments for Every Room

One of the most common questions we get is, “What kind of shades are best in the _____room?” Not all clients think of adding window treatments for every room; often they have select spaces they need solutions for. And, while each and every home has its own unique windows, location and lifestyle of the homeowners, many of the features that are popular in one home can be a favorite in others. Let’s take a look…

Privacy + Natural Light

If you’d like to gain privacy at the window, while also bringing natural light in, we have a few great features for you. Which rooms work best with this type of atmosphere?

  • Entryways
  • Bathrooms
  • Home Offices
  • Dining Areas/Eat-in Kitchens

Room Darkening

It’s a given that most people want room darkening in a portion of the rooms in their homes. Usually, it’s the bedrooms. However, more and more homeowners are seeing the value in blocking the light and heat. Which rooms would benefit greatly?

  • Bedrooms
  • Media Rooms
  • South-facing Rooms

“Hard to Reach” Windows

Do you have windows in your home that are simply out of reach? Windows can be high up on the wall, in a spot that’s unreachable due to room layout or furniture placement, and then there’s skylights. Which rooms commonly have these?

  • Entryways
  • Living Rooms
  • Family Rooms
  • Bathrooms
