Top 9 Window Treatment Myths You Should Not Believe
Are you thinking about installing new window treatments into your home? Here are a few window treatment myths that you should not believe.
- Motorized window treatments are expensive
Just like any other product, when motorized window treatments first came out, they were expensive. The technology was new and everyone was excited about it, so the market price was pretty high. Now, motorized window treatments are very moderately priced. They are actually considered a pretty standard feature. Other high-tech features, like Bluetooth capability, are available for less than one hundred dollars, and you can control your window treatments using your Smartphone, which is really cool.
- You have to spend more for higher quality
You do not have to spend a fortune to get high-quality window treatments. Why spend thousands of dollars on window treatments when you can get the same quality for a better price? You can find perfect window treatments for your home at a variety of stores, and even online. You should not feel limited by price.
- Big department stores have the best products and services
Many people think that you can only find great window treatments at big department stores, but this just isn’t true. There are so many stores that sell great window treatments, and you can even shop online. In fact, shopping online will save you lots of time. You can search for window treatments that match the dimensions of your windows, and you can find colors to match the color scheme from your home. If you end up not liking the window treatments for some reason, you can simply return them. Don’t feel limited to shopping at big department stores when there are other more convenient options out there for you.
- It’s a good idea to install your own window treatments
Installing window treatments can be really complicated and time-consuming. So, sure, you may save money, but is it worth the hassle? Plus, you might make mistakes and have to reinstall the window treatments later.
If you’re buying new window treatments, just pay a little extra to have them installed. It’s definitely worth it. That way, you can be confident that your window treatments won’t fall off and that they are properly installed.
- Bathroom windows should have a standard design
Bathroom windows are constantly overlooked just because, well, they’re in the bathroom. Don’t dress down your bathroom windows just because of their placement! There is so much you can do to give your bathroom an extra special touch by just highlighting the window. With the right window treatments, your bathroom window can look very fancy and elegant. If you’re shopping specifically for a bathroom window treatment, tell your window treatment specialist so he or she can help you find exactly what you’re looking for.
- Working with an in-home consultant is out of your budget range
Some people think that working with an in-home consultant is extremely expensive, but that’s not always the case. Starwood Distributors teams of in-house consultants bring the showroom to your house so you will not have to guess if it complements your style and will work with your budget. Take some time to find a reputable window treatment specialist that has the knowledge to help you. They will be able to answer all your questions and will help with the installation.
- Window treatments make homes look dark
Room darkening window treatments are perfect for bedrooms and movie rooms, but that doesn’t mean you have to buy them for every single room in your home. Window treatments come in a variety of colors and opacity levels so you can find the perfect shade. You will be able to find very sheer window treatments, as well as blackout ones. Everyone’s home is different and everyone’s light preference is different, and that’s why there are so many window treatment styles. Don’t be afraid to purchase window treatments – they will not make your home look dark.
- Window treatments will block the view
Sure, there are window treatments that will keep the light out and that will totally block your view, but you don’t need to limit yourself to those. There are window treatments that will actually enhance your view! If having a good view is important to you, then tell your window treatment specialist so he or she can help you find the perfect window treatments. Some treatments are meant to be left open, and just have a thin, sheer fabric to protect you from the sun. Window treatments will make your views even better.
- Window treatments are all the same
Window treatments come in a wide variety of styles, colors, textures, and patterns. There is a different type of window treatment for every room in your home. Many people think that window treatments are just plain pieces of fabric that cover up the majority of a window, but that is totally false. You can have so much fun with window treatments and experiment with how you use them in your home. For example, you can use blackout treatments for your bedroom, silk treatments for your dining room, and floral treatments for your living room. All of these have different effects and will make each room look completely different. Taking the time to find window treatments for each room will give your home a special touch.
