Try These Simple Window Treatments For Boise

January 21, 2022

Have you ever noticed a window covered with such over-the-top drapery that it turned into the focal point of the room? Or went to open a blind only for it to slant in one direction or the other regardless of which string you pulled? Flamboyant or complicated window shades are distracting and troublesome. Many Boise homeowners prefer simple window treatments like classic interior shutters, sleek roller shades, and trendy cellular shades.

So try these simple window treatment ideas in your Boise home and say goodbye to complicated blinds and drapes.

Choose Simple Louvered Shutters That Blend Into Your Interior Design

One benefit of using simple window treatments in Boise is that they coordinate with nearly all decor. Interior shutters are a excellent example. These louvered shutters have pleasing parallel lines and a smooth finish that give them a subtle but chic look. They look more like an architectural detail than window treatments. And you can purchase them in multiple neutral colors, from the warm wood stains of Ovation® hardwood shutters to cool white faux-wood Polywood shutters.

Interior shutters are also simple to operate. Rather than fussy pull strings, shutters have panels that you can pull open when desired, and you can control the sunlight by adjusting the tilt rod or the louvers. You can open the panels if you want lots of sunlight or tilt the louvers to divert light. Then shut everything whenever you desire privacy, darkness, and insulation.

Easily Operate Motorized And Cordless Roller Shades

A second simple window treatment idea for Boise homeowners, classic roller shades are the definition of simple. They have a flat sheet of material that rolls up inside a tube above your window when you tug the shade a bit. Some people don’t want roller shades if they’ve only seen styles with cords that get tangled and look messy. However, you can avoid such issues with cordless roller shades that have a sewn-in pull bar instead. Or simplify your life further with motorized shades that operate with a remote control or smart app.

Roller shades are an easy choice for Boise window treatments because their clean, sleek look works on nearly every window. Their minimalist style goes with farmhouse, coastal, minimalist, traditional, and other decor trends. The most difficult aspect of using roller shades is picking from the plethora of options available for patterns, fabrics, and colors. You can even pick from sheer, blackout, and medium opacities for the degree of privacy and natural light you want.

Close Your Cellular Shades To Instantly Insulate Your Windows

Cellular shades supply several of the same advantages as roller shades. They simply look and work a bit differently. Instead of rolling up into a tube mounted on your window, cellular shades are constructed from pleated material that folds up on itself when you open them. The pleats create “cells” that give the shades an understated texture and better energy efficiency texture. When you shut your cellular shades, their cells trap some of the air that comes through your windows. Cellular shades are a simple way to insulate your windows against drafts and add a bit of style to them.
