January 21, 2022

Have you ever seen a window covered with some dramatic drapery that it turned into the room’s focal point? Or attempted to raise a blind only to have it tilt in one direction or the other regardless of which string you tugged? Ornate or complicated window shades are overwhelming and troublesome. Most San Antonio homeowners like simple window treatments such as classic interior shutters, sleek roller shades, and trendy cellular shades.

So try out these simple window treatment ideas in your San Antonio home and say goodbye to problematic drapes and blinds.

Use Simple Louvered Shutters That Blend Into Your Interior Design

One benefit of having simple window treatments in San Antonio is that they coordinate with almost all decor. Interior shutters are a ideal example. These louvered shutters have attractive a smooth finish and straight lines that give them an understated but stylish appearance. They look more like an architectural element than window treatments. And you can purchase them in many neutral colors, from the rich wood stains of Ovation® hardwood shutters to crisp white faux-wood Polywood shutters.

Louvered shutters are also simple to use. Instead of difficult pull strings, shutters have panels which can swing open when desired, and you can control the natural light with the louvers by moving the tilt rod or the louvers themselves. You can open the panels when you want a lot of sunlight or move the louvers to divert light. Then close everything when you desire insulation, privacy, and darkness.

Easily Operate Motorized And Cordless Roller Shades

An additional simple window treatment idea for San Antonio homeowners, timeless roller shades are the definition of simple. They have a flat sheet of material that rolls up inside a tube over your window when you tug the shade a bit. Some people don’t desire roller shades because they’ve only seen styles with cords that look messy and get tangled. However, you can prevent these annoyances with cordless roller shades that use a sewn-in pull bar instead. Or simplify your life further with motorized shades that work by remote control or a smart app.

Roller shades are an easy choice for San Antonio window coverings because their clean, sleek look works on many windows. Their minimalist style matches farmhouse, coastal, traditional, minimalist and other design fads. The most difficult aspect of using roller shades is choosing from the variety of choices available for patterns, colors, and fabrics. You can even pick from blackout, medium, and sheer opacities for the level of privacy and natural light you desire.

Easily Insulate Your Windows When You Close Your Cellular Shades

Cellular shades provide many of the same benefits as roller shades. They simply look and work a bit differently. Rather than pulling up into a tube attached to your window, cellular shades have fabric pleats that fold and gather up when you open them. The “cells” that those pleats create give the shades added insulating properties and a slight texture. When you close your cellular shades, their cells catch some of the breeze that slips through your windows. Cellular shades provide a simple way to insulate your windows against drafts and add a little flair to them.
