January 21, 2022

Have you ever seen a window dressed with some over-the-top drapery that it appeared to be the focal point of the room? Or attempted to raise a blind just for it to slant to one side or the other regardless of which cord you used? Flamboyant or complicated window shades are overwhelming and troublesome. Many San Diego homeowners like simple window treatments such as stylish interior shutters, sleek roller shades, and modern cellular shades.

So try out these simple window treatment ideas in your San Diego house and say goodbye to difficult drapes and blinds.

Choose Simple Louvered Shutters That Blend Into Your Home Decor

One advantage of owning simple window treatments in San Diego is that they coordinate with almost all decor. Interior shutters are a great example. These louvered shutters have appealing a smooth finish and parallel lines that give them a subtle but chic appearance. They appear more like an architectural detail than window treatments. And you can buy them in multiple neutral hues, from the warm wood stains of Ovation® hardwood shutters to crisp white faux-wood Polywood shutters.

Louvered shutters are also simple to operate. Rather than difficult strings, shutters have panels that you can pull open when needed, and you can control the light with the louvers by adjusting the louvers themselves or the tilt rod up and down. You can open the panels when you want lots of natural light or move the louvers to divert light. Then close everything whenever you want privacy, darkness, and insulation.

Effortlessly Operate Cordless And Motorized Roller Shades

An additional simple window treatment idea for San Diego homeowners, classic roller shades are quintessentially simple. They have a flat sheet of material that rolls up into a tube above your window when you give the shade a small tug. Some people don’t care for roller shades because they’ve only seen ones with strings that look messy and get tangled. But you can prevent such issues with cordless roller shades that have a sewn-in pull bar instead. Or really simplify things with motorized shades that operate with a remote control or smart app.

Roller shades are an obvious choice for San Diego window covers because their sleek, clean look works on nearly every window. Their minimalist style fits farmhouse, coastal, traditional, minimalist and other decor fads. The most challenging aspect of using roller shades is choosing from the wide selection of choices available for patterns, colors, and fabrics. You can even pick between sheer, medium, and blackout opacities for the degree of privacy and natural light you want.

Instantly Insulate Your Windows When You Shut Your Cellular Shades

Cellular shades offer many similar perks as roller shades. They simply look and work a bit differently. Instead of pulling up into a tube mounted on your window, cellular shades are constructed from pleated fabric that folds up on itself when you open them. The “cells” that the pleats create give the shades a subtle texture and extra energy efficiency texture. When you close your cellular shades, the cells hold some of the breeze that enters through your windows. Cellular shades provide a simple way to give a little style to your windows and insulate them against drafts.
