Try These Simple Window Treatments For Atlanta

January 21, 2022

Do you ever notice a window dressed with some dramatic drapery that it acted as the focal point of the room? Or tried to open a blind just for it to slant on one side or the other no matter which string you tried? Ornate or cumbersome window shades are distracting and troublesome. Most Atlanta homeowners like simple window treatments like elegant interior shutters, minimalist roller shades, and modern cellular shades.

So try out these simple window treatment ideas in your Atlanta home and bid farewell to problematic blinds and drapes.

Choose Simple Interior Shutters That Blend Into Your Interior Design

One benefit of owning simple window treatments in Atlanta is that they match almost all decor. Interior shutters are a great example. These louvered shutters have attractive parallel lines and a smooth finish that give them a subtle but stylish aesthetic. They appear more like an architectural feature than window coverings. And you can find them in multiple neutral colors, from the warm wood tones of Ovation® hardwood shutters to cool white faux-wood Polywood shutters.

Interior shutters are simple to operate too. Instead of difficult strings, shutters have panels which you can pull open when needed, and you can control the sunlight with the louvers by moving the louvers themselves or the tilt rod up and down. You can open the panels if you want lots of sunlight or move the louvers to divert light. Then close everything whenever you desire privacy, insulation, and darkness.

Easily Use Cordless And Motorized Roller Shades

A second simple window treatment idea for Atlanta homeowners, classic roller shades are the definition of simple. They have a flat sheet of material that rolls up into a tube above your window when you tug the shade a bit. Some people don’t like roller shades if they’ve only used ones with cords that get tangled and look messy. However, you can prevent these annoyances with cordless roller shades that have a sewn-in pull bar instead. Or really simplify things with motorized shades that work by remote control or a smart app.

Roller shades are an easy choice for Atlanta window covers because their clean, sleek appearance works on almost any window. Their minimalist style goes with farmhouse, coastal, traditional, minimalist and other design trends. The most challenging part about using roller shades is picking from the array of options out there for fabrics, patterns, and colors. You can even choose between blackout, medium, and sheer opacities for the degree of privacy and natural light you desire.

Easily Insulate Your Windows When You Close Your Cellular Shades

Cellular shades provide many of the same advantages as roller shades. They just look and work a little differently. Instead of pulling up into a tube mounted on your window, cellular shades are made from pleated fabric that folds up on itself when you open the shades. Those pleats create “cells” that give the shades an understated texture and better energy efficiency texture. When you close your cellular shades, the cells catch some of the air that blows through your windows. Cellular shades provide a simple option to give a bit of style to your windows and insulate them against drafts.
