Why People In Virginia Beach Should Order Their Window Treatments Custom-Fitted

February 20, 2020

Your window coverings are worn, and you’re finally looking for something new. You shop around online and purchase treatments you want off the internet. When your window treatments arrive, you begin installing them, but they don’t look right. Even with being advertised as adjustable, they just won’t snug up against the frame. 

Purchasing ready-made treatments from a chain retailer is pretty straightforward, but they aren’t a perfect fit. This is why the window pros in Virginia Beach suggest scheduling a consultation to get window treatments custom-fitted for your windows.

You Need Window Treatments Custom-fitted for the Windows in Your Home

You might conclude that if your new treatment covers the window, it’s doing its job. However, coverings that aren’t the correct dimensions just don’t work well. Even if you carefully calculate the all the dimensions of the window coverings you need, what you receive will likely disappoint. Off-the-shelf coverings can vary as much as an inch in size, so you may not get exactly what you expect.

Windows run in all shapes and sizes. Even standard windows aren’t exactly square. Coverings that aren’t custom fitted may not be attractive or function the way they should. They also may not have all the bells and whistles that you want.

When you get window treatments custom-fitted for your windows, you get the very best treatments that are the correct dimensions and do everything you want them to do.

Prevent Gapping and Compromises With Custom-Made Window Coverings

The first thing to consider with new window coverings is what features would you like your coverings to have? If you make the decision to purchase something other than custom-crafted window coverings for your windows, they may not function correctly.

If your window coverings are too small, they can create unattractive gaps along the window edges that will not block the light or curious eyes. When window coverings like blinds are too outsized for your window, they will hang incorrectly and be difficult to to maneuver. You might find yourself just putting up with frustrating coverings instead of loving them.

However, custom-fitted treatments perfectly cover your window without sticking out and catching on the trim. You can also choose additional features such as wider shutter louvers or brackets that hold your blinds in place to offer enhanced light control and privacy that off-the-shelf treatments might not offer.

And if your window is a specialty shape, like an octagon or arch, it’s almost impossible to get a ready-made window covering that works. These types of windows need a window covering such as a plantation shutter that can be measured and built to exact specifications. When you purchase window treatments custom-fitted for your specialty-shaped windows, they offer all the same advantages as the plantation shutters on your standard-sized windows.
