Why Those In Boise Should Get Their Window Treatments Custom-Fitted

February 20, 2020

Your window coverings are old, and you’re finally ready for something better. You shop around online and purchase a style you like off the internet. Once your window coverings arrive, you start putting them up, but they don’t look the way you pictured. Despite an adjustable base, they just won’t lay flat against the frame. 

Buying stock window coverings from a big box home improvement store is simple, but they aren’t an ideal fit. That’s why the window pros in Boise encourage you to schedule a consultation to get window treatments custom-fitted for your home.

You Should Get Window Treatments Custom-fitted for Your Windows

You might think that if your blind, shutter, or shade covers your window, it’s doing what it’s meant to do. However, coverings that aren’t the correct dimensions of the window just don’t work well. And even if you meticulously calculate the dimensions of the window coverings you want, the treatments you get will likely disappoint. Mass-produced window treatments can differ up to an inch, so you won’t likely receive the treatments you ordered.

Windows run in a variety of shapes and sizes. Even “standard” windows can never be assumed as even along all the edges. Window coverings that are not custom fitted may not look or work correctly. The treatments also may not have all the bells and whistles that you want.

When you get window treatments custom-fitted for the windows in your home, you receive quality window treatments that are the exact dimensions and have all the features you want.

Avoid Unattractive Gaps and Unfortunate Compromises With Custom Window Treatments

One thing to decide with when buying new window coverings is what do you want your window coverings to do? If you make the decision to get something other than custom-crafted window treatments for the windows in your home, they might not work correctly.

If your coverings are too small, they can leave gaps between the window edge that can let in both too much light and prying eyes. If window treatments such as blinds and shades are too large for your window, they will hang awkwardly and be difficult to to maneuver. You might end up just living with your treatments instead of loving them.

However, custom-fitted coverings perfectly cover your window without sticking out and catching on the trim. You can also decide on extra features such as wider shutter louvers or hold-down brackets on blinds to offer enhanced light control and privacy that mass-produced window treatments might not.

And if your window is a specialty shape, such as an octagon or arch, it’s nearly impossible to find a ready-made covering that fits properly. These types of windows need a covering like a plantation shutter that can be expertly made to precise dimensions. When you get window treatments custom-fitted for your odd-shaped windows, they will control light, add privacy, and give energy-efficiency like the shutters on your standard-sized windows.
