How Do I Choose Window Treatments For My Home Office?

 Permanent link

It can be a challenge to find the right window treatments for your living room but deciding on treatments for your home office is an entirely different ball game. Fortunately, you can figure out whether to use shades or shutters, curtains or draperies by simply determining whether you need light, privacy, or both in your office.

Consider the following window treatment tips to help you decide which may work best for your own home office.

Solar Shade Window Treatment

Solar shade window treatments work well for home offices because they cover the window while allowing in plenty of light. Natural light is essential for a home office to keep your eyes from straining as you work.

What's more, although home offices don't often require too much privacy, solar shade window treatments allow subtle privacy when it's desired. To determine the amount of light you'd prefer in your home office, simply choose your fabric depending on how tightly the fabric is woven. The more tightly woven the fabric, the more privacy you'll have but also the less light you'll have as well.

Cellular shades

For those whose homes are a little too close to the neighbor's, cellular shades are one of the best options for a home office. These window treatments are available with an option called top-down bottom-up. This means, unlike traditional window treatments, these shades can be pulled up from the bottom of the window.

This enables homeowners to bring in plenty of light without needing to be seen by curious passersby. For this reason, cellular shades are often a favorite for the bathroom.

Plantation Shutters

Plantation shutters are usually solid and made of wood or composite. They're great for keeping out the sun when shut and bringing in an additional boost of color when open. They are beautiful and add a traditional look. They are also the only window treatment that increases the value of your home.

Shutters are a wonderful addition for those who prefer to let in optimal lighting during the day but want complete privacy at night. As a result, they make for great versatile window treatments for the home office.

When it comes to window treatments, it ultimately comes down to how much light you'd like in your office, how much privacy you prefer, and what style you like the most. For more information on custom window treatments for your home, contact Budget Blinds today!


4 Unique Window Treatments To Brighten Your Home This Winter

 Permanent link

Generally, during winter there is less light, everything dies, and it gets cold. Unfortunately, life dulls a little as we are confined to the inside of our homes during this period. Brightening up the home could make winter that much more enjoyable. Here are some winter window treatment trends to spice up your home decor:

Jewel tone treatments. Jewel tones such as amethyst, deep ruby, and emerald can add an element of sophistication to any space. With additional soft metallics, these luxurious colors can make your home stand out instantly.

Nature-inspired. Bringing nature indoors is one of the hottest interior design trends this year. Natural elements are especially popular in winter when the snow keeps us from most of nature's wonders. Consider bringing in window treatments that have natural materials such as bamboo for an elegant, earthy appearance.

Metallics. Metallic treatments bring an air of luxury into your home as soon as they touch the windows. Gold, bronze, and silver fabrics or accents light up the room and even add greater value to your holiday decorations. Add a few of the latest popular colors and you can guarantee your space will be on par with some of the greatest designs.

Marigold. Yellow is one of those colors that can make or break a space. The wrong shade can make your home look sick rather than cheery. For this reason, consider choosing a warm and rich marigold color to get your space to stand out. This shade of yellow is reminiscent of sunny days and bright futures while complementing the deeper, moodier colors you may have around the house such as plum or emerald for winter.

Metallics Window Coverings

 While some American homeowners only replace their window treatments like curtains, drapes, blinds, and shutters, every seven to eight years, there's no reason to wait. Take this winter to redesign your home decor. Our design consultants at Budget Blinds of Spokane Valley can help you pick the best window treatments for your home.

How To Add Style And Value To Your Home With Plantation Shutters

 Permanent link

One of the best ways to change the style of your home is to replace your window treatments. Window treatments come in a variety of styles and contemporary designs that can match your personal aesthetic and the design of your home.

One particular style of window treatment is plantation shutters. Plantation shutters offer you and your family long-term value. The average window treatment typically lasts around 10-20 years, but plantation shutters can last in your home for a lifetime.

Plantation shutters are often made from wood and can look dazzling in your home. They also offer a surprising number of advantages such as the following:

1. Child-safety. Shutters are child-safe in comparison to other types of blinds. With plantation shutters, you don't have to worry about choking hazards, like dangling cords, for your kids. There's no cord necessary to open and close the shutters.

2. Absolute privacy. Custom plantation shutters can be closed completely. This gives you complete privacy when you need it without the fear that someone can see through the slats.

3. Lighting options. Plantation shutters give you a variety of lighting options. Whether you want as much natural light in your home as possible or if you want to block the light for a quick nap, these shutters let you do it all.

4. Timeless style. If you're worried about your custom window treatments failing to match the rest of your home's style, shutters are one of the best types to invest in. Not only do they add value to your house because they're customized to fit the windows, but plantation shutters are timelessly stylish. They're a classic statement piece that goes well with any eclectic or traditional home décor. And, with the right advice from a good consultant, a plantation shutter can be configured with modern details that can combine a traditional and modern look.


Window treatments are one of the most subtle, but impactful ways to make your home stand out from the crowd. With their many benefits, plantation shutters are one of the best window treatment options a homeowner can invest in.

3 Details to Keep In Mind When Choosing the Right Drapes for Your Home(1)

 Permanent link

The windows are the eyes to a home. Windows are often chosen to be the focal point of a room and they are usually the first things people notice as they enter a home. However, it is not just the window that matters for interior decorating purposes, but what surrounds the windows! From blinds to drapes to shutters, window treatments are really what adds life to a home.

While decorating the interior of your home, it is important to keep a few things in mind when picking window treatments. Here’s a list of details to consider that will help you narrow down your options.

The fabric

You want your drapes to enhance the window, not overwhelm it. Choosing the right fabric is essential to making sure this doesn’t happen. Not only that, but picking the right material can mean the difference between long-lasting Drapes and those that wear away within a few years. For example, if the window treatment fabric is too light they may not handle being tied up all the time, and if they are made from the wrong fabric they could flair and not drape correctly.

In addition, it’s crucial that you pick drapes that fit in seamlessly with the current design of the space. At the most basic level, this means that the colors you choose should match or coordinate with the colors of the walls, flooring, and furniture. When your walls or furniture already feature bold prints or stripes, then choosing patterned drapes could create a painful clash throughout the room so be careful when mixing patterns (a design consultant is especially helpful in this area). In general, take care to choose fabrics that blend compliment your home’s existing interior design. If you know that you plan to further update your home decor in the coming years, take care to choose fabrics that will complement a wide variety of color tones and styles.

The length

To figure out the right length of your drapes, consider the size of your room. A smaller room can instantly look larger with drapes that come to the floor. Just keep in mind that if you are going to have drapes that pool on the floor, pick a sturdier fabric that will hold up and won’t show visible signs of dust.

Automatic...Or not?

Automated window treatments are becoming more and more common. Many newly renovated homes have "smart" blinds or Drapes that can be lowered or raised with the push of a button. Plus, having automatic window treatments can be exceptionally helpful for homeowners with high windows that are a pain to reach!

Considering these three details will help you pick the right window treatments for your home. If you need any help deciding what to do, don’t hesitate to contact us today!

Choosing The Right Drapes

Custom Window Treatments Can Make Your Home More Original

 Permanent link

When it comes to your home, you want the interior design to look as great as possible. You've sorted through websites looking for decor ideas, you've picked through color swatches, and you've sorted through pages of rugs and ottomans. Because your home is where you come to relax after a hard day at work, it's important that every part of it makes you happy when you walk in the door.

That's why it's not enough to go into a store and find just any window treatment. Of course, it's possible to pick drapes from a department store wall or to choose just any of the various types of shades. But then you would have to settle on a pair of drapes that aren’t quite the right fit for your windows, don’t quite match and you don’t quite love. Here are three reasons why you need custom window treatments in your life and in your house:

  1. More originality

    Picking window treatments shouldn't be like picking a plastic shower liner. Your window treatments are one of the first things your guests see when they walk through the door. With store bought treatments, your living room becomes just like any other American house. However, with custom window treatments, you can be sure that no other homeowner (guest or otherwise) has shutters, blinds, drapes or valances like yours.
  2. More variety

    The challenge with store bought merchandise is that there are only so many colors, patterns, and designs you can choose from. However, with custom window treatments, your options for your window designs are endless. And the best part is that, because they're custom made, you can choose the color or style that best matches the rest of your house. That way you won't be hunting through the aisles trying to find drapes that don't clash with your couch.
  3. More customized

    Your home's windows are like the eyes of your house: no pair is exactly the same. And if you have oddly shaped windows throughout your house, this can make finding the right window treatments a major hassle. Customizing your window treatments allows you to find the right decor for your windows without the frustration.

The majority of homeowners replace their treatments approximately every eight years. So, walking into a department store every eight years hoping to find your dream curtains, shades, or shutters on the wall may be wishful thinking. For the best interior design options for your home, make your next treatments custom made. Need help with this process, please contact us at 509-955-7070.
