4 Reasons to Purchase Custom Window Treatments to Help Keep Heating Costs Down

Once you’ve decided that you don’t want temporary fixes to solve a long term heat loss from your windows, there are very valid reasons to purchase custom window treatments.

  1. If you decide on a cellular shade, you may even be eligible for a tax rebate. Hunter Douglas products qualify. If you choose another brand, be sure to check if it is eligible or not.  So besides the great energy efficiency you will get with a Duette® that will keep heat and cold out, you may even get part of it paid for!
  2. Cellular shades can come with several options to make them the perfect window treatment for your situation. They can be room darkening, they can come with a cordless lifting system, and they can also come as a Top Down/Bottom Up treatment which allows you to keep privacy and still let natural light in- a perfect scenario for a bathroom.
  3. If you decide on custom draperies, you will have the ability to choose from literally thousands of fabrics, and several styles of pleating or grommeted top styles. Drapery can also have a room darkening lining, or, if you have very drafty windows, your drapery can have an insulated lining to keep the drafts at bay, or keep the heat from making your room to warm.
  4. Drapery is also a great choice to help add your own style to a room, whether you choose a contemporary print or a traditional damask- it can help you insert a bit of your own personality into your choice.

You can expect to pay anywhere from $200 on up, depending on fabrics, styles and how large your windows are. It is an investment, but it will give you pleasure everyday.  If you’d like more information, feel free to contact us and we will share our process with you. Don’t forget we have a free design service in the Washtenaw County area!

Custom window treatments are more expensive than taping or caulking or putting plastic up, but they also offer a much better option for the long term. They will save you year round on heating and cooling costs, will add beauty to your room, and will keep the sun’s rays from rotting your furniture, carpets or rugs.

Next week we will talk about touches you can use with paint to liven up a room.

    Love the comment on custom draperies, because I just love custom draperies. You gave some really good advise. Although, I don’t know if you can find custom draperies for $200, at least not where I live.
