In the first installment of this feature on window coverings suited specifically for condos, the focus was directed towards the more practical side of condo living. If you’re only finding this post now, you may want to take a look back at part one before reading on, just to catch up.
If you don’t have time to read through the first half, not to worry, because at Affordable Blinds you’ll always be covered in more way than one! The key points you missed from part one are that the two most important practical concerns for condo owners deciding on new window coverings are 1) privacy, and 2) light control.
Similar to light control, you should also consider your ability to control how much heat gets in or is able to escape through your windows. After all, window coverings can have a dramatic effect on your power bill over the course of a year.
Keeping these points in mind, we can now take a closer look at what specific window coverings you’ll want to install. Of course, any time that you’re deciding on a window covering, you should never overlook how the item fits into the style of your current interior décor!
For controlling how much light gets into your home, there’s really nothing that compares to Silhouette and Luminette shades. Not only do these lines offer maximum control with very little effort, but they also provide a genuinely stunning look to your home. For options in both styles, you’ll want to take a look at the huge selection of Hunter Douglas window treatments currently available in our inventory.
If you live in a building that’s in close proximity to neighbours and you want to make sure that no one can see into your unit, then you should look for a shade that’s better at handling privacy. To block out the gaze of nearby units (and protect you from accidentally looking in on them), you’ll want to check out our window treatments that provide the best coverage, giving special consideration to the Silhouette line as your first choice.
On the other hand, if you’re more concerned about window coverings that will impress your guests with gorgeous style, then you should take a closer look at our Luminette shades, which are built specifically for the large square windows often found in new condos.
Whether you pick a shade or blind for your condo, you can enrich the colour scheme of your window covering with the addition of elegant swags at the sides or a valance on top. Additional fabrics can provide you with a way to add some style to a shade that may have been picked for more a practical function.
Moving into a new condo can involve a lot of difficult decision-making, but deciding on window coverings for your new home should never be a chore. Now that you know what you’re looking for, you’ve got many options to choose from. Take a look at our inventory and find the perfect look to match your home!
