How To Choose Bedroom Window Treatments In Las Vegas

When searching for a window covering for your bedroom in Las Vegas, light control, energy efficiency, color, installation, and privacy are important things to consider. 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 reason to choose bedroom window treatments. Drapes, blinds, and shades might give you an adequate screen from curious passersby. But their thin material means shadows and silhouettes may still be visible.

Sliding barn doors and plantation shutters, on the other hand, let you have 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, you can slide the panels closed. Depending on the way the barn doors are mounted, there might be a slight gap on the sides of the window.

Light Control

When you want to block out an obnoxious street light, ignore the full moon, or sleep in, you need a light-blocking bedroom window treatment. Blinds, like curtains and shades, 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 minimizing the amount of light that comes through the window. And some shades may give you adequate light blocking. Sliding barn doors, built from solid wood, can block the light head on. However the gap on the sides of the panels does not seal off the light completely.

The frame for all three types of plantation shutters 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 could have holes and markings that let in light. Block the light from the street every day with these bedroom plantation shutters!

Energy Efficiency

Maintaining the temperature in the bedroom pleasant for sleep all year round may be difficult 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 reduces up to 45% of airflow and blocks up to 30° of temperature. No other bedroom window treatment in Las Vegas comes close. Want to stay toasty in bed in the winter and cool in the summer? Buy Polywood plantation shutters for your bedroom.


Bedroom window treatments can be ordered in an array of styles 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, metal blinds, cellular shades, or Polywood plantation shutters 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. Blinds, shades, and draperies are likely to break, lose their integrity, and discolor within 10 years. Polywood plantation shutters, on the other hand, are engineered to last for 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.
