Shades, Drapes, and Blinds – Oh My!

Batesville Living Room in the Evening with Beautiful ShadesIncluded among the ideal ways to keep your Beebe rental property looking and feeling like home is to include quality window coverings. If your home didn’t come with blinds or shades, you may be wondering about what choices are available for you. The right window coverings bestow a vast range of advantages and benefits, from more privacy, better energy efficiency, and easier light control. They similarly magnify the look and feel of any room. Even conceding all of the benefits window coverings provide, there are also differences. Being aware of which ones are sensible for your rental home can make settling on a decision so much easier.

The first step to take when opting for window coverings is to check into what will suit best for each window. If you have sliding glass doors, vertical blinds are often the best choice. Meanwhile, windows that open up or down often pair best with horizontal blinds. A particular factor to take into consideration is how much light do you wish to block in each room. If light filtering isn’t a nuisance or an issue, shades or light curtains might be your best choice. However, bedrooms or other rooms where near-total darkness is desired may need special room-darkening blinds or curtains to keep as much light out as possible.

When you’ve realized what you like in each room, you can start assessing your window covering options. At present, the most popular choice for rental homes is two-inch faux wood blinds. White faux-wood blinds are relatively inexpensive, easy to find, and come in a wide range of sizes. They also clearly look much lovelier than vinyl mini blinds and tend to last longer also.

Conceding that other colors are available and attainable for you, white is the most widespread choice given that it matches with all and any interior décor. The two-inch blinds do a good job of blocking light, and using faux wood is better than real wood if you are living in places with lots of humidity. With so many advantages and benefits, it’s not too hard to see why this style of blinds has emerged to be a rental home staple.

Despite that blinds are truly useful to intensify energy efficiency, to get true energy efficiency, think about placing honeycomb shades instead. Also commonly called cellular shades, honeycomb shades are a window covering option that can aid you to achieve higher levels of light-blocking and heat-blocking efficiency, making them a favorite pick for bedrooms or windows with a great deal of sun exposure. They come in a variety of styles and colors and do look nice alone or paired with curtains.

One other lovely choice is a roman fabric shade. These window treatments blend the softness of curtains with the functionality of blinds, making them an attractive option for a rental house. Their clean lines and an array of color options make them the right fit for numerous rooms in the house.

Drapery window treatments provide a creative way to spruce up any room in your rental home. Drapes can be matched with blinds or shades or installed on their own. Multiple drapes present light-blocking functionality, likewise, subject to the style and type of fabric you choose.

If you are crafty and need to create a genuinely custom look, drapes have the most options available. With a wide range of colors, patterns, fabrics, styles, and accessories to choose from, you can surely make something that will improve both visual appeal and enhanced privacy. A lot of drapery window treatments also include unique elements, as an example, valances and cornice boards, which can turn a simple window into a stunning work of art.

It doesn’t matter which choice you consider, drapes, blinds, and shades all have a lot to add to your Beebe rental home’s décor. By making clever choices, you can add value and comfort to every room.
