Why People In Chicago Should Get Their Window Treatments Custom-Fitted

February 20, 2020

It’s time for updated window treatments. You look online and select coverings you like off the internet. Once your window coverings arrive, you start installing them, but they don’t look the way you envisioned. In spite of an adjustable base, they just won’t fit snugly in the frame. 

Purchasing stock window treatments from a big name store is easy, but they aren’t an ideal fit. This is why the window pros in Chicago recommend scheduling an appointment to get window treatments custom-fitted for your windows.

You Need Window Treatments Custom-fitted for the Windows in Your Home

You might think that if your window treatment covers your window, it’s doing what it’s meant to do. However, treatments that are not the correct dimensions just don’t work well. And even if you meticulously measure the dimensions of the window coverings you would like to purchase, the treatments you get won’t meet your expectations. Mass-produced window treatments can vary as much as an inch, so you won’t likely get the treatments you ordered.

Windows come in all shapes and sizes. Even standard windows can never be assumed as square. Treatments that aren’t custom made may not be attractive or function the way they should. They also may not have all the bells and whistles that you need.

When you get window treatments custom-fitted for your windows, you receive the very best coverings that are the accurate size and have all the features you want.

Stop Unsightly Gaps and Unfortunate Compromises With Custom Window Coverings

One of the first things to consider with when purchasing new window coverings is how would you like your window treatments to function? If you don’t get custom-crafted window coverings for the windows in your home, they most likely won’t function correctly.

When your window treatments aren’t quite big enough, they can create unsightly gaps along the window edges letting in too much light and prying eyes. When window treatments like blinds are too large for the window, they will hang awkwardly and be hard to to open and close. Your coverings could become a source of inconvenience instead of pride.

Custom-fitted window coverings, however, completely cover your window and smoothly open and close. You can also select extra features like wider shutter louvers or hold-down brackets on blinds to offer excellent light control and privacy that mass-produced coverings might not.

And if you have a specialty-shaped window, such as an octagon or arch, it’s almost impossible to get a off-the-shelf treatment that fits. These specialty-shaped windows demand a covering like a plantation shutter that can be measured and built to exact specifications. When you order window treatments custom-fitted for your specialty-shaped windows, they will control light, ensure privacy, and offer energy-efficiency just like the shutters on your standard-sized windows.
