What to Consider When Selecting Window Coverings

Don’t make the costly mistake of installing the wrong window coverings! Zartex is here to help with a few tips on your choices. Most clients primarily focus on colours, patterns or other aesthetic features of their window coverings. But the three main factors every buyer should consider when selecting window coverings actually have nothing to do with looks. Before you worry about integrating your drapes with your design scheme you must always think about function, location, and privacy.

Every room in your home or office has a different purpose, so it is crucial to match the window coverings to the function of each room. A kitchen welcomes natural light so it would be best to use sheer drapes or other semi-transparent applications. Likewise, a bedroom requires variable amounts of light, so blackout curtains and blinds may be a good fit.

Rooms that face adjacent properties or front onto a main road may need extra consideration with regard to window coverings. If a room faces the path of the sun, you may want window coverings that can control the amount of light and heat that penetrates the space.

When it comes to bedrooms and bathrooms, privacy is likely your top priority when selecting window coverings. You want to have a blend of privacy as well as light penetration. Venetian blinds mixed with colourful drapes would be an excellent combination for a bedroom, while semi-opaque shades are a great option for a bathroom
