If you are considering roller shades for your home, there are plenty of good reasons why.
The clean lines may just be the one. If you have pets and small children at home, the cordless or motorized roller shades can be an excellent choice.
But we want to tell you, they’re not easy to get right. Professional measurement, installation is a must if you want to get roller shades for your place.
Why we are saying so, let us tell you. Be aware of the pitfalls if you don’t want to lose on the effect you want to create with roller shades.
Measurements – Correct or Not
Roller shades like any other custom furniture require exact measurement. You might think it’s easy but it’s not. DIY thing is good but make sure that you have collected all the right information.
Asking for professional help is a better idea in this regard. Professional measurements by the window treatment company you hire are usually free. You just need to show them the window and they will do the rest.
How you want to mount your roller shades also needs consideration. If your window frames are thinner, an outside mount is the only option left as for inside mount the depth of the frame required is more.
And it is not just structure and depth, you also need to consider room darkening. An outside mount will give better results.
The professional experts will help you understand the issue but it is after all your call. If you don’t seek professional help, you may not even think about it.
So, if you are looking for room darkening or blackout, a proper install is important.
Aesthetics and Maintenance
Professional experts will take into consideration every aspect, size, orientation about your window, and ensure that you get the right size headrail.
Poor mounting will reduce the life of the shades. Consider shades as an investment, they should be meant to last.
Okay so your consideration is not room darkening but still, you have to consider light filtering. You can get roller shades in varying weaves.
Some are tighter, some are loosely weaved to allow more light to come in. An open weave roller shade will do no good for the bedroom or media room giving access to sun glare.
Professional help will help you avoid these mistakes. They will help you determine the right level of openness you require for each room.
On the other hand, roller shades on windows that give you access to what’s happening outdoor; a weave that is too dense will not work.
Don’t Just Go for the Brand. Look for the Material and the Construction
If you think that if you buy from the big brands, only then you can get a quality roller shade, you may be wrong.
Sometimes big brands may focus more on sales and marketing but they lack actual product quality. The best test of quality window coverings is the material and construction quality.
