Top 5 FAQs on Buying Window Shutters 02

  1. Which Type of Shutters Should I Pick?

There are varieties of shutters to consider based on your requirements. This entirely depends on your taste and preferences. Do you want shutters in contrast with your room? Do you want wooden louvers or composite wood louvers? Are you looking for easy to clean variants? Do you have a specific style in mind? These are some of the factors you have to be sure about when you are picking the most suitable selection. Convey to the designers a clear idea about your requirements so they can give the best advice.

  1. Why Should I Choose Shutters?

If you want a long-term investment for at least 10 years, shutters are the best choice. Besides being durable, they are energy-efficient to provide thorough insulation for your home.  These neat window coverings give you the utmost control over light and privacy. They can be motorized or manually operated making it an easy to use mechanism. The overall benefits associated with shutters make them a worthy investment.

  1. Should I Measure My Window?

It’s essential to have accurate measurements of your windows prior to ordering and installing the shutters. Professionals or house team experts at your selected store can come to your home on a convenient scheduled date and time to take the measurements they need.

  1. Can I Move My Shutters While Shifting to a New House?

Shutters are permanent fixtures that become part of the house. Moreover, they are custom made to accurately fit the exact measurement of the windows. They add to the resale value of your house but cannot be removed and reinstalled in your new home.

  1. What is the Difference Between Stains and Paints For Shutters?

The primary difference between stains and paints is the way it interacts with the materials of the louvers. Paints will coat the surface of the shutter while stains penetrate and bind with the base material of the shutter louvers. Paints offer diverse choices and can be matched with the colour scheme of your house interiors. Stains on the other hand, have limited palette selection but offer a more natural finish. Furthermore, the use of stain does not interfere with the natural wood grains, and the ridges and knots are still visible.

Shutters are permanent fixtures and comparatively expensive than other window treatments. However, they are a wise investment for homeowners looking to purchase a high-quality option. Centurian Window Fashions offer a wide selection of wood, faux-wood, vinyl and aluminium shutters. Our inventory consists of plantation shutters and California shutters as well. Our experts are available to answer any queries you have regarding the features and functions of any window covering.

How to Avoid Common Mistakes When Installing Curtains and Drapery

We all try to recreate the perfect window treatments seen in various lifestyle magazines and websites. It feels disappointing when we don’t get the exact results, and often wonder where we went wrong. Though it appears easy, hanging drapery and curtains is an art, and poorly hung window treatments can ruin the overall décor of the room. We have all made mistakes at some point, which has led to disastrous results. This post discusses possible mistakes homeowners make when hanging curtains and drapery, and offers solutions on how to avoid them. The Entire Procedure Is Overwhelming Many try to execute the installation process all by themselves and the amount of work can be overwhelming for an amateur. Understanding how to use all of the accessories, proper installation of the rods, height measurements, training the curtain folds right and coordinating the background and curtain colours can be a lot of work for one person. Hence, making mistakes under pressure is common. Trying to mimic an image you liked can make things worse as every room has their unique requirements. The best way to avoid these mistakes is to conduct research or consult a professional who can help you make informed decisions for your DIY project. Many companies who sell drapery, also provide installation services to ensure you achieve the look you want. Buyers Cannot Differentiate Between Curtains And Drapes Buyers often use these terms as synonyms, however, there are significant differences. Drapes are heavier and come with an insulating thermal lining that curtains lack. High electricity bills are often a result of this mistake. If correctly used during the right season, drapes can significantly heat your room and lower your energy consumption. Also, the rod and hooks for this window treatment are made to withstand the weight. Trying to hang drapes on curtain hooks can lead to breakage. The best solution would be to invest in accessories that will work for your curtain and drapery sets so that you can change them as required. The Curtain Length Is Not Right The curtain length has a certain amount of influence on the overall décor. Your room will look incomplete if the curtains look awkward, therefore, you must measure the window accurately and estimate the curtain length accordingly. The width of the curtain must be twice the width of the windows, including the trim. It’s recommended to keep the length longer than necessary so you can fix and trim them to the ideal length. If the curtains are too short they will look awkward and you won’t be able to rectify the mistake. To avoid this, choose curtain hem styles like float, puddle, and kiss, which are known for their elegance. The float style curtain hangs about an inch above the floor, while the kiss barely skims the floor. As the name suggests, this style creates a puddle-like look on the floor. The Rod Height Is Not Measured Appropriately Installing the rod too close to the window frame is a common mistake that …

Whether you have a modern, spacey and playful interior or a sombre vintage style, the window treatments you select has a major influence.

Yellowish lighting fixtures for the evening will create bring it all together to create a warm ambience with this particular type of blind. When you have a budget restraint, you can also choose faux wood, composite wood or woven wood shades to create a similar atmosphere. Sheer Panels If you are counting on natural lighting to accentuate the décor, sheer panels are the quickest and simplest solution. They look beautiful on their own and can be paired with curtains or drapes for additional privacy. Sheer panels are made of soft, airy fabrics that allow a maximum amount of light.
