How To Choose Bedroom Window Treatments In Honolulu04/03/2016 When you’re searching for a bedroom window treatment in Honolulu, color, installation, privacy, light control, and energy efficiency are key criteria to consider. What’s the best choice between plantation shutters, sliding barn doors, blinds, and shades? Think about these 5 things when selecting bedroom window treatments in Honolulu, HI. Privacy Privacy is the primary criteria for selecting bedroom window treatments. Drapes, blinds, and shades can be an adequate shield from curious passersby. But their often sheer material means silhouettes and shadows may still be visible. Sliding barn doors and plantation shutters, on the other hand, let you have ultimate privacy. The shutter louvers can be moved and closed completely. And bedroom shutters are mounted with a frame to ensure there’s no space on the sides of the window. With sliding barn doors, just slide the panels closed for more privacy. But a slight gap on the sides of the window may be of concern depending on how your sliding barn doors are installed. Light Control For all the times you want to sleep in, block out an obnoxious street light, or ignore the full moon, you need a bedroom window treatment that can block light. Blinds, like curtains and shades, are not the best at darkening the room. The material they’re made of is usually thin. And you can still see light coming in from the sides. Certain types of shades can give you enough room darkening. And some blackout curtains can be effective at controlling the light. Some blackout curtains can be effective at minimizing the amount of light that comes through the window. And certain kinds of shades can provide you with enough room darkening. Sliding barn doors, built from solid wood, may block the light head on. However the gap on the sides of the panels does not seal off the light completely. All types of plantation shutters are mounted with a frame that seals off any stray sun rays. And their louvers can lay flat against each other, creating the darkest possible room. Both Ovation® wood and Polywood® shutters are made from louvers that can be closed to block out light. But reclaimed wood shutters may have holes and markings that let in light.
