Why People In Las Vegas Should Get Their Window Treatments Custom-Fitted

February 20, 2020

The time has come for updated window coverings. You browse online and purchase a design you want off the internet. When your coverings arrive, you begin putting them up, but they don’t look right. Even with an adjustable base, they just won’t snug up against the frame. 

Getting ready-made window coverings from a big name retailer is pretty straightforward, but they most likely won’t be an ideal fit. That’s why our window pros in Las Vegas recommend scheduling a consultation to get window treatments custom-fitted for your home.

You Need Window Treatments Custom-fitted for Your Windows

You might think that if your window treatment covers the window, it’s doing its job. But, mismeasured coverings leave a lot to be desired. Even if you carefully measure the all the dimensions of the window coverings you would like to purchase, the final product won’t meet your expectations. Mass-produced treatments can differ up to an inch, so you will likely not get exactly what you ordered.

Windows come in all shapes and sizes. Even standard windows are known for being not exactly even along all the edges. Treatments that are not custom fitted likely won’t be attractive or function the way they should. The treatments also may fail to have the additional features that you need.

When you purchase window treatments custom-fitted for the windows in your home, you get one-of-a-kind treatments that are the correct size and function as they should.

Avoid Gapping and Unfortunate Compromises With Custom-Crafted Window Coverings

One thing to consider with when buying new window coverings is how would you like your window coverings to function? If you decide to get something other than custom coverings for the windows in your home, they may not function correctly.

If your window coverings are too small, they can leave unattractive gaps along of the edges of your windows that can let in both too much light and prying eyes. If window treatments such as blinds are too big for the window, they will be awkward and won’t be easy to open and close. You might find yourself putting up with inconvenient coverings instead of loving them.

Custom-fitted coverings, however, perfectly cover your window without sticking out and catching on the trim. You can also choose additional features like wider shutter louvers or brackets that hold your blinds in place to give top-notch light control and privacy that ready-made coverings might not offer.

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