Try Out These Simple Window Treatments For Hartford

January 21, 2022

Do you ever notice a window covered with such dramatic drapery that it acted as the room’s focal point? Or went to raise a blind only for it to skew in one direction or the other no matter which string you used? Flamboyant or fussy window shades are overwhelming and troublesome. Most Hartford homeowners like simple window treatments such as stylish interior shutters, sleek roller shades, and trendy cellular shades.

So try these simple window treatment ideas in your Hartford house and say farewell to complicated drapes and blinds.

Use Simple Interior Shutters That Integrate Into Your Home Design

One benefit of owning simple window treatments in Hartford is that they coordinate with nearly all decor. Interior shutters are a perfect example. These louvered shutters have appealing a smooth finish and parallel lines that give them an understated but stylish appearance. They look more like an architectural element than window treatments. And you can get them in many neutral hues, from the warm wood tones of Ovation® hardwood shutters to cool white faux-wood Polywood shutters.

Louvered shutters are also simple to use. Instead of difficult strings, shutters have panels that you can pull open when needed, and you can control the sunlight with the louvers by moving the louvers themselves or the tilt rod up and down. You can open the panels if you want lots of sunlight or move the louvers to divert light. Then shut everything when you want darkness, insulation, and privacy.

Effortlessly Use Cordless And Motorized Roller Shades

An additional simple window treatment idea for Hartford homeowners, classic roller shades are quintessentially simple. They are made of a flat sheet of fabric that rolls up inside a tube over your window when you tug the shade a bit. Some people don’t care for roller shades because they’ve only seen styles with pull strings that look messy and get tangled. However, you can avoid these problems with cordless roller shades that use a sewn-in pull bar instead. Or simplify your life further with motorized shades that work by remote control or a smart app.

Roller shades are an obvious option for Hartford window covers because they have a sleek, clean look that works on nearly any window. Their minimalist style matches farmhouse, traditional, coastal, minimalist and other design trends. The hardest aspect of using roller shades is choosing from the wide selection of options on the market for patterns, colors, and fabrics. You can even choose between sheer, blackout, and medium opacities for the degree of privacy and natural light you desire.

Easily Insulate Your Windows When You Shut Your Cellular Shades

Cellular shades provide several similar perks as roller shades. They simply look and work a little differently. Instead of rolling up into a tube attached to your window, cellular shades are made from pleated material that folds up on itself when you open them. The “cells” that these pleats create give the shades better energy efficiency and an understated texture. When you close your cellular shades, their cells trap some of the air that slips through your windows. Cellular shades are a simple way to insulate your windows against drafts and give a bit of style to them.
