Easy Ways to Refresh Your Home

Does your home need a refresh? One of the easiest ways to give new life to your space is by updating your window coverings.

A tailored window treatment can significantly impact the appearance and ambiance of your home. Not only do window coverings add character, but they also provide privacy, light control, and insulation.

Step One: Choose a Suitable Style

The first step to refreshing your home with new window coverings is choosing the right style (blinds, shutters, shades, etc.). Each type offers unique benefits; your decision will depend on your preferences and the room's function.

For example, shades offer excellent light control, privacy, and pizzazz, making them a popular option for bedrooms and living areas. Shutters are a versatile option that can be custom-fitted to any window shape and offer excellent insulation, light control, and privacy. Blinds are the ideal choice if you seek a more practical option. They provide a sleek and modern look; you can adjust the slats to control light and privacy. Faux wood blinds, in particular, are an excellent choice for high-moisture areas, like bathrooms and kitchens, as they are resistant to warping and cracking.

Ways to Refresh with Window Covering

Updating your window treatments can be an affordable, uncomplicated way to refresh your home's living spaces. The following suggestions are some easy ways to transform your home with new window coverings and the help of Southwest Blinds & Shutters experts.

Install Plantation Shutters

Plantation shutters are a popular option that adds a touch of elegance to any room. These shutters have adjustable louvers, which provide you with complete control over the amount of light entering your home. They are available in various materials, such as wood, vinyl, and composite.

If you want a low-maintenance option, vinyl plantation shutters are great. They are moisture-resistant and easy to clean, perfect for high-humidity areas like bathrooms and kitchens. On the other hand, wooden plantation shutters are more suitable for those who want a more natural look. They are available in various stains and finishes and can be customized to fit any window size and shape.

Install Roman Shades

Roman shades are made of fabric and available in various colors and patterns. They can be custom-fitted to any window size and shape and are perfect for adding a touch of elegance to your space.

Roman shades come in various styles, including flat, hobbled and balloon. Matte Roman shades have a sleek and modern look; hobbled shades have a more traditional appearance; balloon shades have a unique, billowy look that can add a touch of whimsy to any room.

Install Roller Shades

Roller shades are simple yet stylish. These shades are made of a single sheet of fabric that rolls up and down on a tube. They come in various materials, including blackout, sheer and solar screen fabrics.

Blackout roller shades are perfect for bedrooms, as they block out light and provide privacy. Sheer roller shades allow natural light to filter into your space while providing some privacy. Solar screen roller shades are ideal for sunrooms and other areas that receive a lot of direct sunlight, as they block out UV rays and reduce glare.

  • They did a great job installing my shutters. Very polite and went the extra mile to do some minor adjustments that I requested. He identified a couple of things that were incorrect on my order and made sure new items were ordered. He came back to reinstall the corrected pieces and did a great job.

  • The technician who measured our windows and eventually installed them did a professional job and was done very quickly. Got our rebate form promptly and would do business again if we are ever in need.
