Choosing A New Set Of Window Shades For Your Home


The shades that you have on your home's windows can be an important part of the interior of your house. These shades will provide an aesthetic highlight to the home while also offering you a significantly greater degree of control over them.

Consider The Amount Of Light And Privacy That You Want For The Room

A key consideration when you are deciding on new window shades is the amount of light and the degree of privacy that you are wanting for the room. For example, some individuals may prefer thinner shades that will still allow soft light to enter the room, but others may have a preference for full blackout curtains. If you are wanting to utilize the best of both these options, you can opt for dual shades. This will enable you to draw the thinner layer of the shades when you are still wanting some light entering or the thicker shades when you are wanting better privacy.

Account For The Tendency Of Light To Escape Around The Edges And Under The Window Shades

Light can still be prone to entering through the gaps that are created around the sides, the top, and the bottom of the window shades. This can be very distracting, but there are window shades that are designed to greatly minimize this problem. For example, some window shades are designed to be slightly oversized so that there will be fabric that can block light entering through these areas. This can be especially useful for window shades that will be used in bedrooms, entertainment areas, and other areas of the home that may require stricter light management.

Recognize The Need To Choose Shades That Are Easy To Clean

Over time, the window shades will become fairly dusty and dirty, and this can occur especially quickly in situations where the homeowner may leave their windows open much of the time as large amounts of dust could be blown into the home where it may stick to the window shade fabric. Choosing window shades that will be easy to keep clean can help you to minimize the visible dirt on the window shades as well as the ability of the dirt to spread to other areas of the house. Luckily, many window shades are designed to be compatible with machine washing. As a result, cleaning them can be a simple process of simply taking down the shades and putting them in the washing machine.
