Why Homeowners In Seattle Should Get Their Window Treatments Custom-Fitted

February 20, 2020

Your window treatments are old, and you’re finally looking for something more updated. You shop around online and order treatments you love from the internet. When your window coverings show up, you start putting them up, but they don’t look the way you envisioned. Despite being described as adjustable, they just won’t lay flat against the window frame. 

Getting ready-made window coverings from a big box store is simple, but they most likely won’t be an ideal fit. Here’s why the window pros in Seattle recommend scheduling a consultation to get window treatments custom-fitted for the windows in your home.

Get Window Treatments Custom-fitted for the Windows in Your Home

You might conclude that if your blind, shutter, or shade covers the window, it’s doing what it’s meant to do. But, ill-fitting coverings definitely aren’t ideal. Even if you meticulously measure the dimensions of the window coverings you would like to purchase, the final product won’t meet your expectations. Off-the-shelf treatments can vary as much as an inch, so you may not receive the coverings you wanted.

Windows come in many shapes and sizes. Even “standard” windows are known for being not exactly square. Window treatments that are not custom crafted may not be attractive or function the way they should. They also may fail to have all the bells and whistles that you want.

Just know that when you buy window treatments custom-fitted for your windows, you get quality window coverings that are the exact dimensions and have all the features you want.

Stop Unsightly Gaps and Unintentional Compromises With Custom-Made Window Coverings

The first thing to decide with when buying new window coverings is how would you like your window treatments to function? When you don’t purchase custom-made treatments for the windows in your home, they most likely won’t work correctly.

If your coverings are too small, they can cause unsightly gaps along of the edges of your windows letting in too much light and curious eyes. When window treatments like blinds and shades are too large for your window, they will hang incorrectly and be difficult to to maneuver. Your coverings could become a source of annoyance instead of pride.

However, custom-made window coverings perfectly cover your window and smoothly open and close. You can also select extra features like wider shutter louvers or hold-down brackets on blinds to give top-notch light control and privacy that ready-made treatments might not offer.

And if you have a specialty-shaped window, it’s almost impossible to find a off-the-shelf covering that fits. These windows need a window treatment like a plantation shutter that can be made to precise dimensions. When you order window treatments custom-fitted for your specialty-shaped windows, they will control light, ensure privacy, and offer energy-efficiency like the shutters on your standard windows.
