It can be easy to feel overwhelmed when it comes to choosing your window coverings. With so many colors, textures, and patterns to choose from, it can be hard to decide. Here’s our quick and easy guide to help you learn about the different types of window coverings and choose the perfect product for every room in the house. So, without further ado, let’s dive into this blog and learn some of our best tips for choosing window coverings.

Store Room by Room

Choosing the right window coverings for your home is a big project. It’s best to break it down into parts. Make a list of all the rooms you need window coverings for. Then, before making your final choice, consider the following five tips for each of those rooms.

1. Durability


As you go through the different types of window coverings, think first about how your room will be used and frequented. For example, window coverings in a bedroom will not be handled as often as those in a living room. They also won’t come into contact with as many people. High-traffic rooms such as the living room or kitchen are sure to get more use.

So it’s best to forgo delicate curtains for high-traffic rooms and instead opt for the strength of Cellular Blinds or Roman Blinds. You’ll also prefer a stain-resistant and easy-to-clean model such as a Vinyl Roller Blind for the kitchen.

2. Convenience

If your window coverings are within easy reach, you can easily opt for imitation wood blinds with a pull-up cord. However, if you need to cover floor-to-ceiling windows, you should consider motorized roller shades. You need to determine if your blinds will be opened and closed frequently and if it will be difficult to lower or raise them. Then choose the lift mechanism that best meets your needs.

3. Privacy


When choosing your window coverings, it’s important to determine how much privacy you want in your room. For the bedroom, not only will you want privacy, but you will also want to block out the light. For the living room, you could opt for 14% translucent solar shades to let in light and brighten your room. If you want your room to remain dark after the sun rises, you should opt for Luxe Blackening Cellular Blinds.

4. Style

Of course, your personal style is an important element when it comes to choosing your window coverings. Before you make your choice, you should consider the decor of each room in your home. It is best to choose more subdued window coverings in neutral tones in a room brimming with color and pattern. In a more subdued room, you can opt for the unique texture of Luxe Plus Bamboo/Woven Wood Blinds.

5. Budget


Your budget plays a crucial role in your choice. Keep in mind that there are several alternative designs that can help create the look you are going for without blowing your budget. If you like the look of wood, then you can look into imitation wood blinds, wood blinds, or wood shutters.

Choosing window coverings for your home is a big decision. To make sure you make the right choice, feel free to refer to the tips above while shopping. You can also order free samples of all our products to see what colors and textures will work best in your space.
