Try These Simple Window Treatments For Dallas

January 21, 2022

Do you ever notice a window dressed with some over-the-top drapery that it turned into the focal point of the room? Or attempted to raise a blind just for it to tilt in one direction or the other regardless of which string you used? Gaudy or complicated window shades are overwhelming and annoying. Most Dallas homeowners prefer simple window treatments such as stylish interior shutters, sleek roller shades, and trendy cellular shades.

So try out these simple window treatment ideas in your Dallas house and bid farewell to challenging blinds and drapes.

Choose Simple Interior Shutters That Blend Into Your Interior Design

One benefit of having simple window treatments in Dallas is that they go with nearly all decor. Interior shutters are a prime example. These louvered shutters have appealing parallel lines and a smooth finish that give them an understated but chic look. They look more like an architectural element than window coverings. And you can get them in multiple neutral colors, from the rich wood tones of Ovation® hardwood shutters to cool white faux-wood Polywood shutters.

Interior shutters are also simple to use. Rather than fussy strings, shutters have panels which you can pull open when desired, and you can control the natural light by moving the tilt rod or the louvers up and down. You can open the panels if you want a lot of natural light or tilt the louvers to redirect light. Then close everything when you desire privacy, darkness, and insulation.

Effortlessly Use Cordless And Motorized Roller Shades

Another simple window treatment idea for Dallas residents, classic roller shades are quintessentially simple. They are made of a flat sheet of material that rolls up into a tube above your window when you give the shade a light tug. Some people don’t like roller shades because they’ve only tried ones with pull strings that look messy and get tangled. However, you can prevent these problems with cordless roller shades that use a sewn-in pull bar. Or really simplify things with motorized shades that operate by remote control or a smart app.

Roller shades are an easy choice for Dallas window treatments because they have a clean, sleek design that works on most windows. Their minimalist style suits farmhouse, coastal, minimalist, traditional, and other decor trends. The most difficult aspect of using roller shades is picking from the wide selection of choices on the market for colors, patterns, and fabrics. You can even choose from blackout, medium, and sheer opacities for the degree of natural light and privacy you need.

Shut Your Cellular Shades To Easily Insulate Your Windows

Cellular shades supply several similar advantages as roller shades. They just look and work a bit differently. Instead of pulling up into a tube attached to your window, cellular shades are made from pleated material that folds up on itself when you open them. These pleats create “cells” that give the shades an understated texture and better insulating properties texture. When you shut your cellular shades, the cells hold some of the air that blows through your windows. Cellular shades are a simple option to insulate your windows against drafts and give a little style to them.
