There are lots of options at big box stores and design retailers for prefabricated, ready-to-hang drapes, blinds, and shades, so you may ask asking yourself, why would I need custom window treatments? Well, there are lots of reasons! Custom window treatments may be a more expensive initial investment, but they’ll prove their value for years to come. Here’s why.
1. You’ll get exactly what you want. Though there may be dozens of options for blinds & drapes at your local Home Depot, there’s a good chance that you’ll have to make some sort of compromise if you shop for window treatments there. Whether it’s a color that’s not quite right, or a print you’d prefer was a little more subtle, it’s rare to find premade options that are perfect for your room. Settling for a less than what you want often leads to dissatisfaction, and there’s a good chance you’ll end up replacing your window treatments in a few years. With custom window treatments, you can ensure you’ll get the style, color, size, and pattern you want, which means you’ll love the results for years to come.
2. You’ll get designer input. When you get custom window treatments, you’re also getting a professional opinion and expertise. Not sure exactly what style or pattern will work best for your space? Working with a staff of professionals will allow you choose the option that will put the perfect finishing touch on your room.
3. You’ll get better quality and functionality. Custom window treatments are an investment that’s made to last. They’re often more durable and thicker than store-bought options, meaning they’ll provide better light-blocking, UV protection, and insulation. Custom shades and blinds can also solve for common design challenges like narrow windows, high ceilings, skylights, and more.
