Why Homeowners In Miami Should Get Their Window Treatments Custom-Fitted

February 20, 2020

Your window treatments are worn, and you’re finally need something new. You look online and purchase treatments you love off the internet. Once your treatments show up, you start the installation, but something doesn’t look right. Even with an adjustable base, they just won’t lay flat against the window frame. 

Getting ready-made window treatments from a chain store is pretty straightforward, but they aren’t one-size-fits-all. That’s why our window pros in Miami suggest scheduling a consultation to get window treatments custom-fitted for the windows in your home.

Get Window Treatments Custom-fitted for Your Windows

You might decide that if your window treatment covers your window, it’s fulfilling its function. But, coverings that are not the right dimensions of the window definitely aren’t ideal. And even if you meticulously measure the size of the window treatments you need, the final product will likely disappoint. Mass-produced window coverings can vary as much as an inch, so you will likely not receive the coverings you expect.

Windows run in many shapes and sizes. Even standard windows are known for being not exactly square. Coverings that are not custom made likely won’t be attractive or function the way they should. They also may fail to have the extra features that you need.

Just know that when you buy window treatments custom-fitted for your windows, you get the very best treatments that are the accurate size and have all the features you want.

Avoid Unsightly Gaps and Unintentional Compromises With Custom-Made Window Treatments

One thing to consider with when buying new window coverings is what features would you prefer your treatments to have? When you don’t purchase custom window coverings for your windows, they might not function appropriately.

When your coverings aren’t quite big enough, they can leave unsightly gaps along the window edges that will not block the light or curious eyes. When window coverings such as blinds are too large for your window, they will hang awkwardly and won’t be easy to maneuver. Your window coverings could become a source of inconvenience instead of pride.

However, custom-fitted window coverings completely cover your window and hang perfectly. You can also decide on additional features such as wider shutter louvers or hold-down brackets on blinds to offer top-notch light control and privacy that mass-produced coverings likely will not have.

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