A Video Guide to Effortlessly Choosing Window Treatments

Know you need an upgrade but wondering how to choose window treatments? We’ll walk you through the 9 most important considerations and narrow down your choices to find the perfect fit for your home.

Types Of Window Coverings

Blinds, shades, drapes, shutters – How do you choose?! Let’s take a brief look at the window covering styles and options available.

Light Control

Unless your window treatments are purely decorative, you probably want them to give you control over the light that comes into your home. Do you want blackout shades that block all light, light filtering shades that gently soften light, or blinds that can be tilted for adjustable light control?


If you’re covering windows in a bedroom or bathroom, or live on a busy street – privacy is probably a concern. It’s important to know which blinds and shades offer privacy and which do not.

Energy Efficiency

Did you know that windows are where most of your home’s energy escapes? Save money and stay more comfortable with window treatments that keep you warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.


As you’re customizing your new window treatments, you may wonder which lift system to choose. We’ll walk you through corded, cordless, top-down/bottom-up, continuous cord loop and more to find the perfect match for your window needs.


Have a great view? Some window shades protect you from glare and UV rays without blocking your view.

Child Safety

Eliminating window treatments with cords is a big part of keeping your home safer for small children and pets. Eliminate this dangerous strangulation hazard by choosing window treatments without exposed cords. Watch the video below to learn more.
