Why People In Dallas Should Purchase Their Window Treatments Custom-Fitted

February 20, 2020

The time has come for brand-new window coverings. You shop around online and select coverings you want from the internet. Once your window coverings appear at your door, you start installing them, but something doesn’t look right. Even with being described as adjustable, they just won’t fit snugly in the window frame. 

Buying stock window coverings from a big box store is simple, but they most likely won’t be one-size-fits-all. Here’s why the window pros in Dallas recommend scheduling an appointment to get window treatments custom-fitted for the windows in your home.

You Need Window Treatments Custom-fitted for Your Home

You might decide that if your window treatment covers your window, it’s doing what it’s meant to do. However, ill-fitting window treatments definitely aren’t ideal. And even if you meticulously measure the dimensions of the treatments you need, what you receive won’t meet your expectations. Mass-produced treatments can differ up to an inch, so you will likely not receive the coverings you ordered.

Windows come in all shapes and sizes. Even standard windows can never be assumed as even along all the edges. Window coverings that are not custom fitted likely won’t look attractive or function properly. They also may lack the additional features that you want.

Just know that when you purchase window treatments custom-fitted for the windows in your home, you receive one-of-a-kind window coverings that are the correct dimensions and have all the features you want.

Avoid Unattractive Gaps and Compromises With Custom-Crafted Window Treatments

One of the first things to consider with new window treatments is how would you like your treatments to function? If you choose to buy something other than custom-fitted window coverings for your home, they most likely won’t work appropriately.

When your window treatments aren’t quite big enough, they can cause unsightly gaps along the window edges that will not block the light or prying eyes. If treatments such as shades are too large for the window, they will be awkward and be hard to to open and close. You might end up just living with your coverings instead of loving them.

But custom-made window treatments completely cover your window and hang perfectly. You can also decide on additional features such as wider shutter louvers or brackets that hold your blinds in place to give enhanced light control and privacy that ready-made treatments might not.

And if your window is a specialty shape, such as an octagon or arch, it’s nearly impossible to locate a ready-made treatment that fits correctly. These types of windows demand a covering such as a quality shutter that can be measured and built for an exact dimension. When you order window treatments custom-fitted for your specialty-shaped windows, they will give all the light control, privacy and energy-efficiency of the coverings on your standard-sized windows.
