Window Treatment Inspiration: Blinds, Curtains, and Plantation Shutters

Window Treatment Inspiration for 2018

We are DFW’s window experts. We can talk about windows all day every day but today we’re going to take a little sidetrack and talk about window treatments.

Window treatments are great for the additional style, privacy, and energy efficiency. When it comes to choosing treatments there are limitless options, check some of them out below. 

Plantation Shutters 

Plantation shutters are a great choice for a timeless look. A good set of plantation shutters are sized to fit your windows so there are no gaps around the outside. You can open and close slats to your comfort like you can with drapery. Want more light? No problem, open the slats. Want to cool down the house? Easy, close the slats.

Roller Shades

Roller shades are similar to roman shades in that they hang flat when down but they roll up smooth instead of into pleats.

Cellular Blinds 

Cellular shades are especially great for energy efficiency and insulation. These shades are made of soft paper- or cloth-like material and shaped into honeycomb cells that hold trapped air between the window surface and the room.

Drapery

Or in other words, curtains; curtains are an easy and classic solution for window treatments. What can really make a difference in curtains are placement, fabric, and rod. Check out some of these great treatments below.
