Try Out These Simple Window Treatments For Honolulu

January 21, 2022

Have you ever noticed a window covered with such dramatic drapery that it became the room’s focal point? Or went to raise a blind only to have it slant in one direction or the other regardless of which cord you tugged? Ornate or cumbersome window shades are distracting and bothersome. Most Honolulu homeowners like simple window treatments such as stylish interior shutters, sleek roller shades, and trendy cellular shades.

So try out these simple window treatment ideas in your Honolulu house and say farewell to challenging drapes and blinds.

Choose Simple Interior Shutters That Integrate Into Your Interior Design

One advantage of using simple window treatments in Honolulu is that they match nearly all decor. Interior shutters are a ideal example. These louvered shutters have pleasing parallel lines and a smooth finish that give them an understated but refined appearance. They look more like an architectural detail than window treatments. And you can buy them in many neutral colors, from the warm wood stains of Ovation® hardwood shutters to crisp white faux-wood Polywood shutters.

Louvered shutters are simple to use too. Instead of fussy cords, shutters have panels that you can pull open when needed, and you can control the natural light with the louvers by moving the louvers themselves or the tilt rod. You can open the panels if you want a lot of sunlight or move the louvers to divert light. Then close everything when you need insulation, privacy, and darkness.

Effortlessly Use Motorized And Cordless Roller Shades

Another simple window treatment idea for Honolulu residents, classic roller shades are the definition of simple. They have a flat sheet of fabric that rolls up inside a tube above your window when you give the shade a light tug. Some people don’t want roller shades because they’ve only seen styles with cords that look untidy and get tangled. But you can avoid these annoyances with cordless roller shades that have a sewn-in pull bar. Or simplify things further with motorized shades that work with a remote control or smart app.

Roller shades are an easy option for window treatments in Honolulu because their sleek, clean look works on nearly any window. Their minimalist style complements farmhouse, traditional, coastal, minimalist and other decor fads. The most challenging part about using roller shades is picking from the plethora of options on the market for colors, patterns, and fabrics. You can even pick from sheer, medium, and blackout opacities for the degree of privacy and natural light you want.

Easily Insulate Your Windows When You Shut Your Cellular Shades

Cellular shades have many of the same perks as roller shades. They just look and operate a bit differently. Instead of rolling up into a tube attached to your window, cellular shades are made from pleated material that folds up on itself when you open them. These pleats create “cells” that give the shades an understated texture and better insulating properties texture. When you shut your cellular shades, the cells trap some of the air that blows through your windows. Cellular shades are a simple way to add a little style to your windows and insulate them against drafts.
