Why People In Boston Should Order Their Window Treatments Custom-Fitted

February 20, 2020

Your window coverings are old, and you’re finally need something more updated. You browse online and select coverings you like from the internet. Once your window coverings show up, you begin putting them up, but they don’t look right. Even with being described as adjustable, they just won’t fit snugly in the frame. 

Purchasing ready-made treatments from a chain retailer is simple, but they aren’t a perfect fit. Here’s why our window pros in Boston suggest scheduling a consultation to get window treatments custom-fitted for the windows in your home.

You Need Window Treatments Custom-fitted for Your Home

You might think that if your new treatment covers the window, it’s fulfilling its function. But, treatments that aren’t the exact dimensions of the window leave a lot to be desired. And even if you meticulously measure the size of the window coverings you need, what you receive will likely disappoint. Mass-produced coverings can vary as much as an inch, so you won’t likely receive the treatments you ordered.

Windows come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Even “standard” windows are known for being not exactly square. Window coverings that aren’t custom fitted likely will not look attractive or function properly. They also may not have all the bells and whistles that you need.

When you buy window treatments custom-fitted for your windows, you receive the very best window treatments that are the accurate dimensions and function as they should.

Prevent Unsightly Gaps and Unintentional Compromises With Custom Window Coverings

The first thing to decide with new window treatments is what features would you prefer your treatments to have? When you don’t purchase custom-fitted coverings for your home, they might not function correctly.

When your coverings aren’t quite big enough, they can create gaps along of the edges of your windows that can let in both too much light and curious eyes. If treatments like shades are too big for your window, they will hang awkwardly and be difficult to to open and close. You might end up just putting up with your window coverings instead of loving them.

But custom-made coverings cover your entire window without sticking out and catching on the trim. You can also decide on additional features like wider shutter louvers or brackets that hold your blinds in place to offer top-notch light control and privacy that off-the-shelf window coverings likely will not have.

And if you have a specialty-shaped window, such as an octagon or arch, it’s almost impossible to get a mass-produced window treatment that works. These windows need a treatment like a plantation shutter that can be made for an exact dimension. When you order window treatments custom-fitted for your specialty-shaped windows, they give all the same benefits as the plantation shutters on your standard windows.
