How To Choose Bedroom Window Treatments In Las Vegas

April 03, 2016

When searching for a window covering for your bedroom in Las Vegas, light control, energy efficiency, color, installation, and privacy are important things to think about. What’s the best choice between blinds, shades, plantation shutters, and sliding barn doors? Here are 5 things to consider when purchasing bedroom window treatments in Las Vegas, NV.


Privacy is the most important criteria for choosing bedroom window treatments. Shades, drapes, and blinds might give you an adequate screen from curious passersby. But their thin material means shadows and silhouettes can still be seen.

Sliding barn doors and plantation shutters, on the other hand, give you ultimate privacy. The shutter louvers can be moved to close all the way. And bedroom shutters are installed with a frame to ensure there’s no space on the sides of the window. With sliding barn door shutters, all you have to do to get more privacy is slide the panels closed. But a slight gap on the sides of the window may be of concern based on the way your sliding barn doors are mounted.

Light Control

When you want to sleep in, block out an annoying street light, or ignore the full moon, you need a light-blocking bedroom window treatment. Blinds are not ideal for maintaining the darkness in the room. Most of their material is thin. And the light still comes in from the sides.

Certain kinds of shades might result in enough room darkening. And some blackout curtains can be effective at reducing the brightness in the room. Some blackout curtains succeed in controlling the light. And some shades may provide you with adequate light blocking. Sliding barn doors , made from solid wood may block the light head on. However the gap on the sides of the panels does not seal off the light completely.

All three plantation shutters are mounted with a frame that seals off any stray sun rays. And their louvers can lay flat against each other, to create the darkest possible room. Both Polywood® and Ovation® wood shutters are made from louvers that can be closed to block out light. But reclaimed wood shutters are likely to have markings and holes that let in light. Ignore the moonlight every day with these bedroom plantation shutters!

Energy Efficiency

It can be difficult to keep the temperature in the bedroom pleasant all year round for a restful night’s sleep with the wrong window treatment. You’ll want to buy for a window treatment for the bedroom with a high energy efficiency rating.

Polywood shutters insulate 70% better than the comparable wood shutters, and 1600% better than aluminum blinds. Polywood blocks up to 30° of temperature and reduces up to 45% of airflow. No other bedroom window treatment in Las Vegas comes close. So if you want to stay toasty in bed in the winter and cool in the summer, purchase Polywood plantation shutters for your bedroom.


Bedroom window treatments can be ordered in an array of styles and colors to match your décor. For the warmth of wood, choose reclaimed wood shutters, sliding barn door shutters, wood blinds, woven wood shades, or Ovation wood plantation shutters. If you’re going for a more contemporary look, Polywood plantation shutters, metal blinds, or cellular shades are your better alternative. And these bedroom window treatments can be customized with a selection of patterns, paints, stains, and more. Ask your window treatment expert about the color options available in the Las Vegas area.


Buy with quality in mind when it comes to bedroom window treatments. Shades, draperies, and blinds are susceptible to discoloration, breaking, and losing their integrity within 10 years. Polywood plantation shutters, on the other hand, are engineered to last for over 50 years. They’re treated with UV inhibitors so that the paint color doesn’t yellow. And made with our patented wood synthetic, shutter louvers will never warp.
