Why People In Atlanta Should Order Their Window Treatments Custom-Fitted

February 20, 2020

Your window coverings are worn, and you’re finally need something new. You shop around online and purchase coverings you want from the internet. When your window coverings appear at your door, you start the installation, but something doesn’t look right. Despite an adjustable base, they just won’t lay flat against the window frame. 

Buying stock window coverings from a big box retailer is pretty straightforward, but they most likely won’t be an ideal fit. That’s why our window pros in Atlanta suggest scheduling an appointment to get window treatments custom-fitted for your windows.

You Need Window Treatments Custom-fitted for Your Home

You might conclude that if your window treatment covers your window, it’s doing its job. However, coverings that aren’t the correct dimensions leave a lot to be desired. And even if you precisely figure the dimensions of the window coverings you need, what you receive will likely disappoint. Off-the-shelf window coverings can differ as much as an inch, so you won’t likely receive the coverings you ordered.

Windows come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Even “standard” windows can never be assumed as square. Window coverings that are not custom crafted likely won’t look attractive or function properly. Additionally, they may fail to have the additional features that you need.

Just know that when you get window treatments custom-fitted for your windows, you receive quality window treatments that are the exact dimensions and function as they should.

Avoid Unsightly Gaps and Unintentional Compromises With Custom Window Coverings

The first thing to consider with when purchasing new window coverings is what features would you prefer your window treatments to have? If you decide to have something other than custom window treatments for your windows, they most likely won’t work correctly.

If your coverings aren’t big enough, they can cause unattractive gaps along the window edges that can let in both too much light and curious eyes. If window treatments such as blinds are too large for your window, they will be awkward and won’t be easy to open and close. You might end up just putting up with your window coverings instead of loving them.

But custom-made window treatments cover your entire window and smoothly open and close. You can also choose extra features like wider shutter louvers or hold-down brackets on blinds to give excellent light control and privacy that mass-produced window treatments likely will not have.

And if your window is a specialty shape, such as an octagon or arch, it’s nearly impossible to find a mass-produced covering that works. These windows demand a window treatment like a quality plantation shutter that can be made for an exact dimension. When you purchase window treatments custom-fitted for your odd-shaped windows, they will direct light, ensure privacy, and give energy-efficiency just like the plantation shutters on your standard-sized windows.
