Shades, Drapes, and Blinds – Oh My!

Mount Prospect Living Room in the Evening with Beautiful ShadesAmong the effective techniques to make your Mount Prospect rental property looking and feeling like home is to add on quality window coverings. If your home didn’t come with blinds or shades, you may perhaps be considering what your possible options are. The right window coverings extend a considerable number of benefits, from more privacy, better energy efficiency, and easier light control. They, likewise, boost the look and feel of any room. Although all window coverings endow, to say the least, quite a few comforts, there are also many differences. Comprehending which ones make perfect sense for your rental home can help make determining your choice much easier.

The first step when choosing window coverings is to take into account what will suit best on each window. If you have sliding glass doors, vertical blinds are often the best choice. Be that as it may, windows that open up or down often pair best with horizontal blinds. One aspect to take into account is how much light do you intend to block in each room. If light filtering isn’t a concern, shades or light curtains might be your best choice. On the contrary, bedrooms or other rooms where near-total darkness is desired may need special room-darkening blinds or curtains to keep as much light out as possible.

When you learn and understand what you wish for in each room, you can begin thinking of your window covering options. These days, the most popular choice for rental homes is two-inch faux wood blinds. White faux-wood blinds are relatively inexpensive, easy to find, and come in a wide range of sizes. They, moreover, really look much better than vinyl mini blinds and tend to last even longer, likewise.

Even though many other colors are within reach, white is the most well-liked option since it fits with just about any interior décor. The two-inch blinds do a good job of blocking light, and using faux wood is better than real wood if you live in areas with too much humidity. With so many advantages and benefits, it’s not that hard to observe why this style of blinds has turned out to become a rental home staple.

Even though blinds will, in some way, boost energy efficiency, to get true energy efficiency, look into putting up honeycomb shades instead. Similarly called cellular shades, honeycomb shades are a window covering option that can aid you to achieve higher levels of light-blocking and heat-blocking efficiency, making them a splendid option for bedrooms or windows with so much sun exposure. They come in a broad range of styles and colors and appear beautiful alone or paired with curtains.

Another tempting variation is a roman fabric shade. These window treatments merge the softness of curtains with the functionality of blinds, making them an attractive option for a rental house. Their clean lines and an array of color options make them a really good fit for various rooms in the house.

Drapery window treatments allow for a creative way to fix up any room in your rental home. Drapes can be combined with blinds or shades or installed on their own. Countless drapes offer light-blocking functionality but that depends on the style and type of fabric you choose.

If you are crafty and like to produce a custom look, drapes have the most options. With countless number of colors, patterns, fabrics, styles, and accessories to choose from, you can make something that will truly add both visual appeal and enhanced privacy. Lots of drapery window treatments also include unique elements, in particular, valances and cornice boards, which can turn a simple window into a stunning work of art.

Whatever selection you make, drapes, blinds, and shades all have a lot to add to your Mount Prospect rental home’s décor. By making wise conclusions and decisions, you can add value and comfort to every room.
