Why Those In Honolulu Should Order Their Window Treatments Custom-Fitted

February 20, 2020

Your window treatments are outdated, and you’re finally looking for something new. You browse online and order treatments you want off the internet. Once your window treatments show up, you begin putting them up, but something doesn’t look right. Even with being advertised as adjustable, they just won’t snug up against the window frame. 

Getting stock treatments from a big name retailer is pretty straightforward, but they most likely won’t be a perfect fit. This is why our window pros in Honolulu encourage you to schedule an appointment to get window treatments custom-fitted for the windows in your home.

You Should Get Window Treatments Custom-fitted for Your Windows

You might decide that if your new treatment covers the window, it’s doing what it’s meant to do. But, coverings that aren’t the correct dimensions of the window leave a lot to be desired. And even if you meticulously calculate the size of the window treatments you need, the treatments you get won’t meet your expectations. Ready-made window treatments can vary as much as an inch in size, so you won’t likely get the treatments you expect.

Windows run in a variety of shapes and sizes. Even “standard” windows aren’t exactly even along all the edges. Treatments that aren’t custom made may not look or work correctly. They also may fail to have the extra features that you need.

When you buy window treatments custom-fitted for your windows, you get the very best treatments that are the accurate size and do everything you want them to do.

Prevent Unsightly Gaps and Unintentional Compromises With Custom Window Coverings

The first thing to consider with when purchasing new window treatments is what do you want your treatments to do? If you don’t get custom window treatments for your home, they most likely won’t work appropriately.

When your window treatments aren’t quite big enough, they can cause gaps between the window edge that can let in both too much light and curious eyes. When treatments like blinds and shades are too outsized for the window, they will hang incorrectly and be hard to to open and close. You might end up just putting up with your treatments instead of loving them.

However, custom-made treatments perfectly cover your window without sticking out and catching on the trim. You can also choose additional features like wider shutter louvers or hold-down brackets on blinds to give top-notch light control and privacy that mass-produced window coverings likely will not have.

And if you have a specialty-shaped window, it’s almost impossible to find a mass-produced window treatment that fits. These specialty-shaped windows require a window treatment like a plantation shutter that can be measured and built to exact specifications. When you get window treatments custom-fitted for your odd-shaped windows, they will control light, ensure privacy, and offer energy-efficiency like the plantation shutters on your standard-sized windows.
