Shades on Wheels

custom window blindsThere are so many options out there when it comes to window treatments that it is often hard to make a decision. The first step is to decide which type of window treatment you want. To do this you must consider the intended function of the window treatment. You could go with blinds, which offer you maximum control over the amount of light that it let in to the room. Or you could go with shutters, which still provide you with some light control but can add an extra element of style. Or maybe drapes or shades are more your style. Once you find the right window treatments you will be amazed and how far they can go to tie a room together. Below is a list of the most common types of window treatments to help you with your decision! If you’re still having trouble deciding, or if you are ready to order your custom window treatments, check out Shades on Wheels today!

1. Blinds

Blinds are a type of window treatment that is installed in to the frame of the window. Blinds are made of up horizontal slats that are strung together with a string pulley system that allows you to pull the blinds up or down. Also, the individual slats of the blinds can be rotated in order to allow you maximum control over the amount of light that you want to let in to the room.

2. Shutters

Shutters are another type of window treatment that are typically installed in to the frame of the window. Like blinds, shutters are also made up of horizontal slats. Shutters can be pulled open to expose the view of the window, or closed to cover the window. With some types of custom window shutters you can also have control over the angle at which the horizontal slats will lay to provide you with a great deal of control over the amount of light that is let in to the room.

3. Shades

Shades are also typically installed in the frame of the window, although some types of shades may be installed slightly above the frame of the window. Shades are made up of a single piece of fabric that rolls or fold in to itself when the shade is pulled up. Depending on the material of the shade, shades can offer a great deal of privacy and can block out most light from the outside when the shade is pulled down.

4. Drapes

Drapes are a type of window treatment that is installed above the frame of the window. Drapes can be designed in a variety of different ways in order to create a variety of different looks for your space. Drapes typically hang from above the frame of the window down to just above the floor and can be tied to the side of the frame to expose the window, or can be installed on a rod so that you can pull the drapes open or closed.
