If you have recently bought or are in the process of building a new home, congratulations! A new house provides not only a place to live or raise a family, but also a blank slate where you can express your own sense of style right from the start instead of gradually replacing a previous homeowner’s décor with your own. Whether you decide to cover all of the windows at once or one room at a time, Pugerudes is the place for custom window treatments for new homes.
Deciding Which Window Treatments to Buy First
If you have decided not to select all of the window treatments for your new home at one time for budget reasons or because you simply want to take your time, there are probably some windows that need covered more immediately than others. Bedrooms and bathrooms are usually the rooms that require the most privacy, so you may want to cover them first. Pugerudes offers a wide variety of beautiful window fashions that fulfill this need. Roller shades provide complete privacy for these rooms and come in numerous colors and materials.
Rooms that can often wait for window treatments are kitchens, family rooms, and home offices, especially if they are at the back of the house. If you never want to completely conceal your outdoor view in these rooms, designer screen shades block harmful UV rays from the sun and provide partial privacy but still allow you to see outside.
Selecting One Window Treatment Type for a Whole House
If your new home has an open floor plan, or you want to have a uniform look to your windows from the outside, you should consider selecting one type of window treatment for all of your windows. Plantation shutters are a popular choice for uniform window treatments because they add value to your home and blend easily with all types of décor. Another flexible window treatment is horizontal blinds, which come in a variety of slat sizes, materials, and finishes. They also work well with draperies or valances if you want to add a personal touch to some or all of your windows.
Choosing Custom Over Pre-Made Window Treatments
A new home is a big investment, and you will want to ensure the quality of everything you put inside it matches the integrity of the home itself. Custom window treatments from Hunter Douglas may initially cost a little more than pre-made ones, but they are made specifically to fit your windows, are manufactured in the U.S., come with a limited lifetime guarantee, and are professionally installed.
With custom window treatments, it’s also easier to get exactly what you want for every room in your new home. Because they are made just for you, you can get unique sizes and shapes for your windows in the material you want instead of settling for something that will cover your windows and kind of fit.
