Blinds, shades or shutters – which is the best window covering for you? With so many options, it’s hard to decide. There are hundreds of styles, colors, fabrics, textures, and options available to go with any decor, and even more operational options. At Windows & More serving the Lake Ozark area, our showroom in Osage Beach has dozens of functional window displays that allow you to see, touch, and operate a wide variety of window coverings styles. Before you stop by our store or schedule a consultation, here’s some general information to help you narrow in on the perfect window covering option.
How do you want to open your window treatments?
Do you want to tilt slats of a blind or shutter to look out your window, or raise a shade? Consider the room location, how your windows open, and sun exposure to determine what type of window treatment will work best. Window treatments that lift allow you to see through an unobstructed window. These window treatments can be easily lifted or slid completely out of the way. Window treatments that tilt keep the window covered most of the time while light and privacy are controlled by rotating louvers open or closed.
Blinds, shades or shutters?
The basic construction of any window covering either has slats, vanes or panels that can be raised and lowered or moved from side to side. It is the opacity, look, and feel that makes them different. Blinds come in horizontal, vertical and specialty shaped window applications. An affordable window treatment, blinds come in aluminum, vinyl, wood, faux wood, and fabric in hundreds of colors, styles and options to complement any room or décor style.
Shades offer fashionable design, energy efficiency, sun protection, room-darkening features, and privacy. Available in horizontal, vertical and specialty shaped window applications, shades offer a clean soft look to fit anyone’s budget. Shade fabrics range from man-made materials to natural sustainable materials like bamboo and are available in the widest selection of colors, styles, textures, and options.
Shutters are the most expensive of the three window treatment types. Available in hardwood, faux wood, vinyl and in an array of colors, textures and slat options, they provide the ultimate in privacy.
