What to consider when selecting window treatments?

There are many factors that go into choosing the right window treatments for your home.

Identifying what items are important to you when selecting window treatments can be difficult and that’s why 3 Day Blinds supplies you with a expert Design Consultant to guide you to the perfect window treatment solution. Here are a few elements our experts have identified as important factors to consider when selecting window treatments.

Window Treatment Privacy

The degree of privacy you feel is important often varies depending on room and preference, but certainly an important element to consider when selecting window treatments. Do you prefer complete privacy, or a moderate degree to maximize light? If you are looking for window treatments for your living room or office, you want to consider solutions that reduce glare. 3 Day Blinds has excellent privacy options in all respects.

Window Treatment to Preserve a View

Many people run into the problem where they have a fabulous view and are hesitant to install window treatments but at the same time they would like to have a bit more privacy. 3 Day Blinds suggestion is to not block your view but frame it. A rule of thumb, wider louvers, or  slats on blinds and shutters will offer more “view space” when open. Another view preserving window treatment option is 3 Day Blinds top down/bottom up solution for shades and horizontal blinds.

Window Treatments that are Energy Efficient

Energy efficiency is a big priority these days, and window treatments can greatly impact your energy use. Something to keep in mind is a homes heating and cooling energy is most often lost through its windows. At 3 Day Blinds, we provide several energy efficient window treatments that will exceed you insulation needs and ultimately lower you heating and cooling costs.

Eco- Friendly Window Treatments
