When searching for a bedroom window covering in Miami, color, installation, privacy, light control, and energy efficiency are important things to think about. What’s the best window treatment between sliding barn doors, blinds, shades, and plantation shutters? Consider these 5 things when buying bedroom window treatments in Miami, FL.

Plantation shutters and sliding barn doors provide you with the most privacy. The shutter louvers can be moved so that they close completely. And bedroom shutters are installed with a frame to ensure there’s no space on the sides of the window. With sliding barn door shutters, you can slide the panels closed. A slight gap on the sides of the window may occur based on the way your sliding barn doors are set up.

Light Control

If you want to sleep in, block out an annoying street light, or ignore the full moon, you need a bedroom window treatment that can block light. Blinds are not the best at maintaining the darkness in the room. The material they’re made of is usually thin. And the light still comes in from the sides.

Some shades can provide you with adequate room darkening. And some blackout curtains succeed in reducing the brightness in the room. Some blackout curtains can be effective at reducing the brightness in the room. And some shades can result in enough room darkening. Sliding barn doorsare made from solid wood panels that can block the light head on. But the gap on the sides of the panels does not seal off all the light.

Now you can sleep in every day of the week with these bedroom plantation shutters!
