Window Treatments and Your Remodel
With a new year comes new goals, new ideas, and new prospects! Many homeowners use this time to take a look at their property and consider how they can improve it in order to create a more functional, modern, and stylish home.
When most people think about home remodeling, they seem to focus on the big-ticket items: the kitchen, the bathroom, and the flooring. But what about the little details? Often, it is these small touches that can make the biggest impact on your home. One of these seemingly small details? Window treatments.
Pick up your pen and get in design mode as we discover what new window treatments can do for your home in your upcoming remodel.
Improve Function and Efficiency
Window treatments can work wonders to improve the efficiency and function of your home. According to energy.gov, windows can account for up to 30% of heating and cooling loss every year — wasting energy and money. By allowing you to control sunlight exposure and providing added insulation, the right window treatments can help keep the temperature in your house more consistent — meaning less money spent on heating and cooling bills! Plus, they provide a layer of privacy that most homeowners value greatly.
If you're looking for functional and efficient treatments, here are a few options:
- Cellular shades
- Venetian blinds
- Roman shades
Additionally, redoing your window treatments opens up the opportunity for motorization! Motorized treatments can be opened or closed with the press of a button on a remote or your smartphone or with the help of a timer or temperature sensor. This provides an unmatched level of convenience that the whole family will appreciate. Ask your Bloomin' Blinds crew if your current treatments can be motorized!
Update Your Style
As time goes on, certain things go in and out of style, and your personal needs and tastes will change! This is when many homeowners decide to take on a remodeling project. And, of course, a home with a new look needs new treatments to match! Window treatments give you the opportunity to customize your home’s aesthetic to complement your new remodel.
Going for a classic look? Try a beautiful set of Roman shades! In need of a more ultra-modern design, go for the more sleek panel track blinds. What about your cozy home office? Wooden blinds are the rustic choice for you.
There are plenty of window treatments available that can help you achieve whatever style you want. From shutters to shades to blinds, with a variety of colors and fabrics to choose from, the options are endless.
Increase Your Home Value
Finally, window treatments have the potential to increase the value of your home. From both a practical and aesthetic standpoint, window treatments will make your home more attractive to potential buyers should you ever decide to sell. During the staging process, well-designed window treatments will help make the home look more put together and ready for move in day.
By modernizing the look of your home and adding functionality through motorized treatments, you’ll have taken one step further in making sure that your property is ready to compete in the real estate market.
