Selecting the Perfect Bedroom Window Treatments

Your bedroom should be your sanctuary. After a long day, you should be able to retreat to a place of tranquility in order to wind down and catch up on some precious sleep. Whether you’re looking for romantic ambiance, blinds to control sunlight or window treatments to protect your privacy, you can dress up your bedroom windows without sacrificing style; after all, window coverings should be both useful and beautiful.

Here are a few options to consider when selecting a style for your bedroom windows.

  • Shades are extremely popular because of their nearly endless range of styles, colors and patterns, not to mention they work well with just about any decorating style. There are many varieties of shades, including bamboo, cellular, Roman, pleated, solar, motorized, and roller.
  • Blinds are a simple, modern window treatment that is great for bedrooms because they add privacy and are effective at blocking out sunlight. Blinds in Chandler AZ are available in wood, metal and vinyl.
  • Shutters are a classic, sophisticated window treatment that are energy efficient, offer ample light control, and are timeless in their design. They work especially well in coastal, cottage, country, or rustic rooms by adding structural and architectural lines to the space.
  • Drapery panels can add color, character, and privacy to a space. Also, if you’re sensitive to light or sleep during the daytime and need to keep daylight out, blackout drapes are ideal.

Lower Your Energy Bill with Window Treatments

Window treatments usually serve two purposes in our homes: One, for the most practical reason, they offer much-needed privacy, especially in bedrooms and bathrooms. Two, we dress up our windows in drapes, blinds and decorative shades for beauty and style purposes. But, what if we told you that with the right materials those same window coverings could help lower your monthly energy bills?

Whether you prefer shades, blinds, drapes, or shutters, you can minimize heat loss in winter and heat gain in the summer, which can significantly lower both heating and cooling costs. This is a cheaper alternative to replacing windows that are weak and allow cold air in or warm air to escape. Most importantly however is proper installation. For example, mounting shades as close to the glass as possible and right up against the adjacent wall creates a tight seal.

Before investing in energy efficient window treatments, consider which room(s) the treatments will be going into, what the room is used for and how much you plan to open or close them. Knowing these details will help you make the right decision based on the room and your usage.
