Choose the Right Window Coverings for Your Home

When it comes time to dress your windows, your options may seem pretty straightforward. However, the Bloomin' Blinds team is proud to offer a wide variety of window coverings that each offer unique style and functionality. Shutters, blinds, drapery, and shades — we have every kind of covering you could need; but choosing the right treatment can be tricky on your own.

Let the experts at Bloomin' Blinds guide you through our portfolio so you can be better informed about your options as you begin looking for new window coverings.


Shutters are some of the easiest window coverings to identify thanks to their unique structure and shape. When thinking of shutters, you may imagine the picture-perfect home with painted shutters and flower boxes on the exterior windows. While exterior shutters are great for aesthetics, interior shutters are a great option for any home.

Some of the benefits to choosing shutter installation for your home include:

  • Style. Shutters add a certain charm and character to any space.
  • Privacy. By adjusting the slats with a simple tilt, you can easily control your levels of privacy.
  • Insulation. Shutters offer a layer of protection from the elements and help regulate indoor temperature. During warmer months, they can stop 50% of radiant heat from entering your home.
  • Light. Shutters are known to block out more sunlight than most other window treatments!


With a number of materials and styles, blinds are a window covering that can match any homeowner's wants and needs. Some of our most popular blinds include wood, faux wood, and motorized blinds. The wide variety of materials means you can put blinds anywhere from your sophisticated home library to your spare bedroom.

Their simple, corded design makes them easy to use, but if you’re worried about little ones or pets, blinds can easily be motorized! This eliminates cords and allows you to control your blinds by remote.

Blinds are one of the most cost-effective window covering options available on the market and can be easily installed by one of our Bloomin' Blinds professionals.


If you’re looking for an energy efficient solution for your windows, custom window shades are a terrific choice. While it’s great to let natural sunlight into your home, on extremely warm or cold days, it can become uncomfortable. Some of our most insulating and popular shade options include:

Cellular Shades. At the highest efficiency value, these shades allow you to control the amount of sunlight that enters your home. These shades are well insulated, especially if you choose double cell treatments!

Roman Shades. Thick material makes roman shades well insulated. In order to function at their best, however, they must be closed the majority of the day.

Motorized Solar Shades. Motorization is a great way to make your efficiency goals autonomous. Sun and temperature sensors will allow your shades to automatically adjust themselves throughout the day based on the conditions outside.


Arguably some of our most sophisticated window coverings are draperies. These convey a luxurious feeling and can truly pull together a room’s design. They pair nicely with blinds and shades to add dimension and depth to your windows. Here is why so many of our customers love draperies:

  • Add color and texture to walls and windows
  • Create elegance and warmth
  • Can darken a room extremely well
  • Are great insulators
