Frequently Asked Questions About Window Coverings in Denver


June 6, 2018

A number of questions may arise as you shop for and install window coverings in Denver. To help you find the information you need, we’ve rounded up a list of the most frequently asked questions. Here are the answers to these burning questions:

Should I install the window treatment on my own?

Many customers try to cut costs by installing the window treatments on their own, but this isn’t a good idea. It may look like installing window treatments is easy, but it’s much more difficult than it seems. The best way to ensure that a window treatment is secure and level is to have a professional install it.

Which window treatments block out the most light?

Some customers want lightweight and airy window treatments that will still allow some light to pour into their homes, while others prefer window treatments that block out as much light as possible. If you’re in the latter group, look for draperies that have blackout liners designed to prevent light from coming into the room. This is a great choice for your bedroom if you don’t want to wake up at sunrise every morning.

Which window treatment should I choose if I have children at home?

There are some window treatments that are more kid-friendly than others. The most important feature to pay attention to when shopping for kid-friendly window treatments is the cord. Kids may be tempted to tug on cords and if they pull hard enough, they could rip the entire window treatment down. It’s best to look for motorized shades that do not have any visible cords. Learn how to choose child-safe window treatments.

How can window treatments save you money?

You may have heard that window treatments can save you money and wondered if there was any truth to this rumor. Good news—it’s true! Window treatments can help you control the temperature inside your home so you don’t have to rely as heavily on your heating and cooling system. For example, window treatments can be closed during the summer to block out heat so you don’t have to crank down the air conditioner to keep cool. In the winter, window treatments should be left open during the day so the warm sunlight can enter your home through the windows. By using your window treatments to control the temperature in your home, you can greatly reduce the amount of money that you spend on monthly utility bills.

Which window treatments are the easiest to clean?

Most people would agree that wood or faux wood blinds and shutters are the easiest to clean. All you have to do to keep these window treatments clean is dust them occasionally.
