Why People In Hartford Should Purchase Their Window Treatments Custom-Fitted

February 20, 2020

The time has come for brand-new window coverings. You browse online and select coverings you want off the internet. When your treatments arrive, you begin putting them up, but something doesn’t look right. Despite being advertised as adjustable, they just won’t lay flat against the frame. 

Purchasing pre-made window coverings from a big name home improvement store is easy, but they most likely won’t be an ideal fit. This is why our window pros in Hartford suggest scheduling a consultation to get window treatments custom-fitted for the windows in your home.

You Need Window Treatments Custom-fitted for Your Windows

You might think that if your new treatment covers your window, it’s fulfilling its function. But, ill-fitting window treatments just don’t work well. Even if you precisely measure the dimensions of the window treatments you would like to purchase, what you receive will likely disappoint. Ready-made window treatments can vary as much as an inch in size, so you may not get exactly what you wanted.

Windows come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Even “standard” windows aren’t exactly even along all the edges. Treatments that aren’t custom crafted likely will not be attractive or function the way they should. The treatments also may not have the additional features that you need.

When you purchase window treatments custom-fitted for your windows, you receive one-of-a-kind window treatments that are the accurate dimensions and have all the features you want.

Avoid Unattractive Gaps and Unfortunate Compromises With Custom Window Coverings

One thing to consider with new window treatments is how would you prefer your treatments to function? If you don’t have custom-made window coverings for your windows, they might not function appropriately.

If your treatments aren’t quite big enough, they can leave gaps between the window edge that will not block the light or prying eyes. When treatments such as blinds and shades are too large for your window, they will hang awkwardly and won’t be easy to open and close. You might end up just putting up with your treatments instead of loving them.

However, custom-made coverings completely cover your window and smoothly open and close. You can also select features like wider shutter louvers or hold-down brackets on blinds to give top-notch light control and privacy that ready-made treatments might not offer.

And if your window is a specialty shape, like an octagon or arch, it’s incredibly difficult to locate a mass-produced window treatment that works. These windows need a covering like a quality plantation shutter that can be made to precise dimensions. When you get window treatments custom-fitted for your odd-shaped windows, they will control light, ensure privacy, and give energy-efficiency just like the shutters on your standard windows.
