Why Those In San Antonio Should Purchase Their Window Treatments Custom-Fitted

February 20, 2020

Your window treatments are old, and you’re finally need something more updated. You look online and order coverings you want off the internet. When your coverings arrive, you begin installing them, but they don’t look like the ones you imagined. In spite of being advertised as adjustable, they just won’t fit snugly in the frame. 

Buying pre-made treatments from a chain retailer is simple, but they aren’t an ideal fit. That’s why our window pros in San Antonio suggest scheduling an appointment to get window treatments custom-fitted for your windows.

You Should Get Window Treatments Custom-fitted for Your Windows

You might decide that if your new treatment covers your window, it’s doing its job. But, inaccurately measured treatments just don’t work well. Even if you meticulously figure the dimensions of the treatments you need, the treatments you get may disappoint. Ready-made window treatments can differ as much as an inch, so you won’t likely get the treatments you wanted.

Windows run in all shapes and sizes. But even standard windows can never be assumed as consistently sized. Window treatments that aren’t custom crafted likely won’t be attractive or function the way they should. The treatments also may not have all the bells and whistles that you want.

Just know that when you get window treatments custom-fitted for the windows in your home, you get the very best window coverings that are the exact size and function as they should.

Prevent Unattractive Gaps and Compromises With Custom Window Coverings

One thing to decide with when purchasing new window treatments is what do you want your window treatments to do? When you don’t have custom treatments for the windows in your home, they may not function correctly.

If your treatments are too small, they can leave gaps between the window edge that can let in both too much light and prying eyes. If treatments such as blinds are too large for your window, they will hang awkwardly and be difficult to to maneuver. You might end up just putting up with your window treatments instead of loving them.

However, custom coverings cover your entire window without sticking out and catching on the trim. You can also decide on features like wider louvers for your shutters or brackets that hold your blinds in place to offer excellent light control and privacy that ready-made coverings might not.

Additionally, if your window is a specialty shape, it’s nearly impossible to locate a ready-made window treatment that fits. These types of windows demand a treatment like a quality plantation shutter that can be measured and built to precise dimensions. When you purchase window treatments custom-fitted for your odd-shaped windows, they will offer all the light control, privacy and energy-efficiency of the coverings on your standard-sized windows.
