When It's Time For New Window Treatments

When It’s Time For New Window Treatments

If you are looking around your house and you’re missing something from your current window treatments, then it’s time to update. Virtually any room-refresh, makeover, or remodel  requires updating the window coverings. Changes in wall or accent color, flooring material or style, or simply because you don’t particularly care for your current drapes or blinds are all good reasons to explore your options for new window treatments. Windows are such an important part of any home and the treatments can add style, sophistication, a pop of color, a bold statement, or a simple homely softness.

So, once you’ve decided you’re set for new window treatments, how do you decide what to get? 

There are several options when it comes to window treatments, but the most popular include:

  • Blinds
  • Curtains
  • Interior Shutters

Let’s consider the look and style of your home and decor: modern, classic, mid-century, country, craftsman bungalow, beach house, etc. This plays into how you adorn your windows. Before jumping into your new treatments, ask yourself what you’re missing from your current room aesthetic and what kind of treatments will correct that for you!


Blinds can be a low-cost solution if you’re looking for a solution to harsh lighting and privacy. Blinds are easy to operate and come in all varieties of styles and colors. You can even get blinds custom made for your windows. Nowadays, you can even get blinds INSIDE your window! But, the downside of blinds is how easy they tear up. Do you have active cats, dogs, or kids? Then you may see your blinds tangled, broken, or in a pile on the floor. 


Curtains are a very stylish window treatment option that can transform any space. Coming in all varieties of colors and fabrics, curtains can add a statement or a softness to your room. Sheer curtains let it light while maintaining privacy, while black-out curtains leave the room, well, black! Perfect for sleeping in. Curtains, like most home furnishings, can range in price from the bottom of the barrel to very high-end. You can even get curtains custom made for your home. But no matter your budget, you are sure to find curtains that match any interior style you are going for. You can even use curtains in conjunction with other window treatments, such as shutters. 


Interior plantation shutters provide the home with an architectural style and timeless elegance which undeniably brightens and elevates any room. Similar in aesthetic to blinds, plantation shutters are made of wood and fare much better than simple blinds. They can be white or wood stained, and custom made to match your windows. Entering a room adorned with high quality plantation shutters adds a sophistication and an awe-gasping experience for anyone walking in. While they can be a bit of an investment upfront, these shutters offer a timeless look and quality that lasts. 

If you’re still stuck, there are professionals that can help! Stop in to any of your local interior stores for advice and ideas on what would look best in your home. You can also try making a Pinterest board for inspiration!

Janet, Lynchburg, VA

“This company is fantastic. From the first contact we had with them (visiting their showroom) to the final installation, they are #1 professionals. After we visited the showroom, the salesperson came to our home, showed us a sample shutter, and made recommendations (and gave different styles) for our windows. After we accepted the contract, she made an appointment to come out and do exact measurements. We love our new shutters, and every element of this contract could not have been better. They even left a jar of VA peanuts!”

“We love hearing from our clients – Here’s a review we received this week……..”My shutters were delivered and installed this morning. From start to finish the installation took about 90 minutes. I am beyond impressed with the high quality craftsmanship and over the moon with how gorgeous they are. I’d also like to note, that everyone from Marcia in sales, Jodi in billing, and the installers, whose names I didn’t catch, are supremely professional. As a Richmonder, I love that the money from my purchase stays in the local economy, too. I will be singing this company’s praises for years to come.
