Why Homeowners In Philadelphia Should Order Their Window Treatments Custom-Fitted

February 20, 2020

Your window coverings are outdated, and you’re finally need something more updated. You browse online and select treatments you want from the internet. When your coverings arrive, you start the installation, but they don’t look right. Even with being described as adjustable, they just won’t snug up against the window frame. 

Purchasing ready-made treatments from a big name home improvement store is simple, but they most likely won’t be one-size-fits-all. This is why the window pros in Philadelphia encourage you to schedule an appointment to get window treatments custom-fitted for your windows.

Get Window Treatments Custom-fitted for Your Home

You might think that if your blind, shutter, or shade covers your window, it’s doing what it’s meant to do. But, inaccurately measured window coverings just don’t work well. Even if you meticulously measure the dimensions of the treatments you would like to purchase, the treatments you get won’t meet your expectations. Ready-made coverings can vary as much as an inch in size, so you will likely not receive the coverings you wanted.

Windows run in many shapes and sizes. But even standard windows are known for being not exactly even along all the edges. Window coverings that are not custom made likely will not look attractive or function properly. Additionally, they may fail to have the additional features that you need.

When you purchase window treatments custom-fitted for your windows, you receive quality window treatments that are the exact dimensions and have all the features you want.

Prevent Gapping and Unintentional Compromises With Custom-Crafted Window Treatments

The first thing to consider with when buying new window coverings is what features would you like your coverings to have? When you don’t have custom window treatments for the windows in your home, they most likely won’t work properly.

If your window coverings are too small, they can leave gaps along of the edges of your windows letting in too much light and curious eyes. If window treatments like shades are too outsized for the window, they will hang incorrectly and be hard to to adjusdt. You might find yourself just learning to live with inconvenient window coverings instead of loving them.

Custom-fitted treatments, however, perfectly cover your window and hang perfectly. You can also choose extra features such as wider louvers for your shutters or brackets that hold your blinds in place to offer enhanced light control and privacy that ready-made window treatments might not offer.

Additionally, if your window is a specialty shape, it’s almost impossible to get a ready-made window treatment that fits properly. These types of windows demand a treatment like a plantation shutter that can be expertly made to exact specifications. When you get window treatments custom-fitted for your specialty-shaped windows, they will offer all the light control, privacy and energy-efficiency of the coverings on your standard-sized windows.
