Why People In Jacksonville Should Get Their Window Treatments Custom-Fitted

February 20, 2020

Your window coverings are outdated, and you’re finally ready for something more updated. You look online and select coverings you like from the internet. Once your window treatments arrive, you begin installing them, but they don’t look right. Despite being described as adjustable, they just won’t snug up against the frame. 

Buying ready-made window treatments from a chain retailer is simple, but they are not one-size-fits-all. That’s why the window pros in Jacksonville recommend scheduling an appointment to get window treatments custom-fitted for the windows in your home.

You Need Window Treatments Custom-fitted for Your Home

You might conclude that if your window treatment covers your window, it’s doing what it’s meant to do. However, coverings that don’t meet the exact dimensions leave a lot to be desired. And even if you precisely calculate the all the dimensions of the window treatments you would like to purchase, the final product won’t meet your expectations. Ready-made window treatments can differ as much as an inch in size, so you will likely not get the coverings you ordered.

Windows come in all shapes and sizes. Even standard windows aren’t exactly even along all the edges. Window treatments that aren’t custom fitted may not look attractive or function properly. The treatments also may fail to have all the bells and whistles that you need.

When you purchase window treatments custom-fitted for the windows in your home, you receive the very best coverings that are the exact dimensions and have all the features you want.

Avoid Unattractive Gaps and Unfortunate Compromises With Custom Window Coverings

One of the first things to evaluate with when purchasing new window treatments is what do you want your treatments to do? If you make the decision to buy something other than custom-fitted coverings for your windows, they may not function properly.

When your window coverings aren’t quite big enough, they can create gaps along of the edges of your windows that will not block the light or prying eyes. When window treatments like blinds are too outsized for the window, they will be awkward and be hard to to open and close. You might end up just living with your treatments instead of loving them.

But custom window treatments perfectly cover your window without sticking out and catching on the trim. You can also select extra features such as wider shutter louvers or hold-down brackets on blinds to offer enhanced light control and privacy that ready-made window coverings likely will not have.

And if you have a specialty-shaped window, it’s incredibly difficult to get a off-the-shelf window treatment that fits. These specialty-shaped windows demand a treatment such as a quality shutter that can be measured and built to precise dimensions. When you purchase window treatments custom-fitted for your odd-shaped windows, they will control light, ensure privacy, and give energy-efficiency just like the plantation shutters on your standard-sized windows.
