How To Select Bedroom Window Treatments In Atlanta04/03/2016 When you’re looking for a bedroom window covering in Atlanta, color, installation, privacy, light control, and energy efficiency are important criteria to consider. What’s the best window treatment between blinds, shades, plantation shutters, and sliding barn doors? Consider these 5 things when buying bedroom window treatments in Atlanta, GA. Privacy Privacy is the primary criteria for choosing bedroom window treatments. Shades, drapes, and blinds might provide you with an adequate screen from curious passersby. But their often thin material means shadows and silhouettes are noticeable. Plantation shutters and sliding barn doors, conversely allow you ultimate privacy. The shutter louvers can be moved so that they close entirely. And you can rest assured that there are no gaps where the louvers meet the side of the window since bedroom shutters are mounted with a frame. With sliding barn doors, all you have to do to get more privacy is slide the panels closed. A slight gap on the sides of the window may occur based on how your sliding barn door shutters are installed. Light Control For all the times you want to block out an obnoxious street light, ignore the full moon, or sleep in, you need a light-blocking bedroom window treatment. Blinds, like curtains and shades, are not ideal for keeping the room dark. The material the slats are made from is usually pretty thin. And light still filters in from the sides. Certain types of shades might provide you with adequate room darkening. And some blackout curtains succeed in reducing the brightness in the room. Some blackout curtains succeed in reducing the brightness in the room. And certain kinds of shades might result in enough light blocking. Sliding barn doors, built from solid wood, block the light head on. However the gap on the sides of the panels does not seal off all the light. All types of plantation shutters are installed with a frame that seals off sun rays. And their louvers can lay flat against each other, creating the darkest possible space. Both Ovation® wood and Polywood® shutters are made from louvers that can be closed to block out light. Keep in mind reclaimed wood shutters could have holes and markings that let in light. Block the light from the street any day with these bedroom plantation shutters! Energy Efficiency It can be difficult to maintain the temperature in the bedroom at a pleasant range through all the seasons for restful sleep with the wrong window treatment. That’s why you’ll want to buy for a window treatment for the bedroom with a high energy efficiency rating. Polywood shutters insulate 1600% better than aluminum blinds, and 70% better than the comparable wood shutters. Polywood reduces up to 45% of airflow and blocks up to 30° of temperature. You won’t find a more energy efficient window treatment in Atlanta. So if you want to stay cool in the summer and toasty in the winter, pick Polywood plantation shutters for your bedroom. Color Bedroom window treatments come in a variety of colors and styles to complement your décor. For the warmth of wood, install woven wood shades, Ovation wood plantation shutters, reclaimed wood shutters, sliding barn door shutters, or wood blinds. If you’re going for a more contemporary look, cellular shades, Polywood plantation shutters, or metal blinds are a better alternative. Any of these bedroom window treatments can be customized with a selection of paints, stains, patterns, and more. Ask a window treatment expert about your color options in the Atlanta area.
