Have you ever asked yourself, what is it that truly makes a home beautiful? What is it that really makes the home stand out? Some would say that the interior décor or paint that makes the difference. Others might claim that beauty is in they eye of the beholder?

At Custom Home Interiors, we consider window treatments to be an integral piece of what really makes a home beautiful. As the function and purpose of window treatments have evolved over time, designers and decorators now maximize the inclusions of window treatments as a means of providing privacy, controlling natural light intake into a room, as well as a way to control temperatures during summer and winter.

Modern day window treatments are designed and built with state of the art features that essentially enable a homeowner to act as Mother Nature and control light and temperature through window treatments. As we live in an environment conscious society, issues like energy efficiency become a priority as window treatments are now designed to be environment friendly.

There are many window treatment manufacturers in the industry that produce window treatments. One company in particular that we are quite fond of is Hunter Douglas. “Hunter Douglas offers the industry’s largest collection of energy-efficient, custom-made window treatments. Designed and assembled in the U.S., and backed by a lifetime Guarantee, our sheers, shades, honeycombs, blinds and shutters can be customized with lifting systems for added safety and convenience” (Hunterdouglas.com).

So what are the things to consider when purchasing window treatments?

–       Room Type

–       Decorating Style

–       Material

–       Color

–       Specialty Shapes & Design Options

–       Privacy & Light Control

–       Pricing

–       Measurement & Installation

The beautiful part about window treatments is that there are custom solutions for just about any type of consumer. Whether you are price-conscious or design conscious, Hunter Douglas has the answer.

So maybe when you ask yourself, what makes your home stand out? ; Hunter Douglas might have the answer.
