Take a look around your house – we’re sure you’ll notice that nearly every window has some type of window covering or treatment on it. Whether you chose them yourself or previous owner did, window coverings stay up because they serve countless benefits for you and your family. From protecting the home from harmful UV rays, to regulating temperature and incoming light, window coverings are an essential aspect of every modern home’s design.

Window coverings have come a long way from their basic structural predecessors. Motorized technology, remote controls, and cordless operation have made today’s window treatments more innovative than ever before. While these advances can be clearly seen in the design of today’s shutters, blinds, drapes, and shades, the hidden secret is that these innovations extend far beyond design and into the very materials, fabrics, and construction of the window coverings themselves.

The materials used for your window coverings are an essential aspect of their effectiveness. Composite blinds, for instance, are a great alternative to traditional wood blinds since their synthetic material makes them more resistant to moisture and a perfect fit for tricky rooms like the kitchen and bathroom. Utilizing fire-retardant materials for your curtains and draperies makes them safe to use throughout your home and helps reduce the risk of damage in times of emergency. Anti-microbial materials are a great option for health-sensitive family members as they help improve air quality while providing all the benefits of standard window coverings.

While the materials used to construct your window coverings are especially important, how you hang them is important as well. In addition to innovative advances in window treatment materials, the services available for consulting and installing your product have never been easier.
