Buying your first home is an exciting time — but furnishing that home can be overwhelming. Many first-time homebuyers are faced with a dilemma they’ve never encountered before: choosing window coverings for the multiple rooms in their home.
It’s a big job, so we’ve come up with a few tips for making window covering decisions in your new home.
Focus on Privacy First
Your number one priority is the safety and privacy of your home. Identify the places in your home where privacy covering is absolutely necessary, and focus on those areas first.
Having a privacy focus doesn’t mean you sacrifice style! We have hundreds of options for your windows that provide privacy covering while highlighting the best parts of a room. Our design team can help you find the option that is the best fit for you.
Mix it Up
They say that variety is the spice of life, and this is absolutely true when it comes to window treatments. You don’t have to have the same style or fabric in every room. You can even mix things up within the same space! Let your window treatments match the needs and personality of each individual room.
Budget Per Room
Budgeting can be one of the most difficult parts of the process. For that reason, we recommend breaking down your budget room-by-room. Evaluate each room on its individual needs. For example, you may find motorization helpful in your living room, but unnecessary in the kitchen. Tackling the budget one room at a time helps you make the best decision for each individual space, and then you can plan your projects accordingly.
Because we know that choosing window treatments can be an overwhelming task, we’ve created some tools to help get you started. Our window planner helps you get a feel for what your needs and tastes are. Our measuring guide helps you get an idea of the sizing of your windows.
These tools are a great starting point, but they’re only the beginning. When you schedule a design consultation with us, we’ll walk you through every step of the process, and be there to answer all of your questions. We’ll make sure you start life in your new home with well-dressed windows!
