Why People In San Diego Should Purchase Their Window Treatments Custom-Fitted

February 20, 2020

The time has come for brand-new window coverings. You look online and purchase a style you like from the internet. When your window coverings show up, you start installing them, but they don’t look like the ones you imagined. Despite an adjustable base, they just won’t snug up against the frame. 

Purchasing stock treatments from a chain home improvement store is simple, but they most likely won’t be an ideal fit. This is why our window pros in San Diego suggest scheduling a consultation to get window treatments custom-fitted for your windows.

You Need Window Treatments Custom-fitted for Your Windows

You might decide that if your new treatment covers your window, it’s doing its job. But, coverings that aren’t the exact dimensions just don’t work well. And even if you meticulously measure the all the dimensions of the window treatments you would like to purchase, what you receive won’t meet your expectations. Ready-made coverings can vary as much as an inch in size, so you may not receive exactly what you wanted.

Windows run in a variety of shapes and sizes. But even standard windows aren’t exactly even along all the edges. Treatments that aren’t custom made likely won’t be attractive or function the way they should. Additionally, they may fail to have the additional features that you want.

When you purchase window treatments custom-fitted for your windows, you get one-of-a-kind window treatments that are the correct dimensions and do everything you want them to do.

Stop Unsightly Gaps and Unfortunate Compromises With Custom-Crafted Window Coverings

One of the first things to decide with when buying new window coverings is how would you like your window treatments to function? If you don’t buy custom-made treatments for the windows in your home, they may not work properly.

When your window coverings aren’t quite big enough, they can create gaps along the window edges letting in too much light and prying eyes. When window coverings like blinds and shades are too large for your window, they will hang incorrectly and be difficult to to open and close. Your window treatments could become the source of inconvenience instead of pride.

But custom-fitted window coverings cover your entire window without sticking out and catching on the trim. You can also choose additional features such as wider shutter louvers or hold-down brackets on blinds to give excellent light control and privacy that ready-made window coverings likely will not have.

And if you have a specialty-shaped window, such as an octagon or arch, it’s incredibly difficult to get a off-the-shelf window treatment that fits. These windows require a window treatment like a plantation shutter that can be made to exact specifications. When you get window treatments custom-fitted for your specialty-shaped windows, they will give all the light control, privacy and energy-efficiency of the coverings on your standard windows.
