There are endless ways to decorate your windows. Window treatments help create the look and feel of your home where you want it to be and serve a functional purpose in keeping out heat and sunlight. There are many types of windows and window treatment options so if you’re shopping for a certain window, here are different window treatment options to keep in mind.

For very large windows, covering it entirely can cause a lot of tension. The weight of the window shade can become very heavy. Instead, consider dividing your window shades into multiple blinds on a single rail and install them next to each other. If you don’t like the idea of splitting the shades on your large window, consider other control options instead of a string. You can motorize them or all a more sturdy type of control.

Window treatments for French doors are very popular. You can cover your doors with a few different types of window shades. Consider keeping your room consistent and choose a similar, if not the same type of window shade for your French door and you did the windows in the room. Think about blinds with smaller slats so you don’t interfere with opening and closing the doors. You can put any kind of folding shades on your doors, Roman shades, honeycomb shades or others. Sometimes you may want to consider keeping it simple since it’s in addition to window treatments already in the room.

Covering skylights in your home of office building may help block heat and cold form coming in while still bringing in the natural light. Skylight shades help control and regulate how the sunlight enters the room throughout the day. Skylight shades are available in a number of different styles, including folding, or Roman shades, flat roller shades, sloped shades and pleated shades. You can even customize your window shade based on the dimensions of the skylight you’re covering.

Many windows are designed differently, but window treatments can be customized to your liking, from the style, to the color to the type of fabric. Based on what you want you window shades to do, or which windows you want to cover, Shading Systems Inc. can work with you to help choose the right option for you.
