Why Those In Salt Lake City Should Purchase Their Window Treatments Custom-Fitted

February 20, 2020

Your window coverings are outdated, and you’re finally ready for something better. You shop around online and select coverings you want off the internet. When your treatments arrive, you begin installing them, but they don’t look like the ones you envisioned. Despite being advertised as adjustable, they just won’t fit snugly in the frame. 

Purchasing stock window coverings from a chain home improvement store is pretty straightforward, but they aren’t one-size-fits-all. Here’s why our window pros in Salt Lake City recommend scheduling a consultation to get window treatments custom-fitted for your windows.

You Should Get Window Treatments Custom-fitted for the Windows in Your Home

You might conclude that if your blind, shutter, or shade covers the window, it’s doing what it’s meant to do. However, coverings that are not the correct dimensions of the window definitely aren’t ideal. And even if you carefully calculate the all the dimensions of the window coverings you need, the final product may disappoint. Mass-produced treatments can vary as much as an inch, so you will likely not get the treatments you expect.

Windows run in all shapes and sizes. But even standard windows aren’t exactly consistently sized. Treatments that aren’t custom fitted may not look or work correctly. Additionally, they may fail to have the extra features that you want.

When you buy window treatments custom-fitted for the windows in your home, you receive one-of-a-kind coverings that are the correct size and have all the features you want.

Avoid Unattractive Gaps and Compromises With Custom-Crafted Window Coverings

One of the first things to decide with when purchasing new window coverings is how would you like your window treatments to function? If you make the decision to buy something other than custom coverings for your windows, they might not function appropriately.

If your window treatments are too small, they can leave gaps along of the edges of your windows that will not block the light or curious eyes. When treatments like blinds are too big for your window, they will hang awkwardly and be hard to to maneuver. You might end up just living with your coverings instead of loving them.

But custom-made coverings cover your entire window and hang perfectly. You can also decide on additional features like wider louvers for your shutters or hold-down brackets on blinds to offer enhanced light control and privacy that off-the-shelf treatments might not offer.

And if you have a specialty-shaped window, such as an octagon or arch, it’s almost impossible to find a off-the-shelf window covering that fits. These specialty-shaped windows require a treatment such as a plantation shutter that can be made for an exact dimension. When you purchase window treatments custom-fitted for your odd-shaped windows, they will offer all the light control, privacy and energy-efficiency of the coverings on your standard-sized windows.

Enjoy the Benefits of A Professional Window Measurement
