Blinds & Shades

The Alustra Collection of Roller Shades in Pure

There are literally hundreds of shades and blinds on the market today. With so many products, brand names, and manufacturers it’s hard to weed through it all and find the right product for your home. Window treatments take a lot of abuse and undergo regular activity throughout the course of their lifetime. If you have pets and children, then your concerns are even greater. The average homeowner is not an expert on shades or shutters, and doesn’t prefer to geek out on such products, but, rather, just want a bottom line on what is best for them. So before you invest in window coverings that you may regret, consider the following guidelines below to help you on your way.

Go With Custom Built Products

No amount of store-bought window treatments on the market today can compare to the quality and precision that goes into custom built shutters, shades, or blinds. Products in a department store are mass-produced and have a limited selection. They often have an institutional look and a generic color that is somehow intended to cater to a wide variety of tastes and styles. For a slightly higher investment you can get exactly what you were looking for in the first place.

Function and Features

Other than style and design, what truly distinguishes quality window treatments from low-quality is the sturdiness of all moving parts. If you’re purchasing standard shades, shutters, or blinds then it’s important to have a general understanding of how each works and what the most crucial components are. For instance, how is it opened? Is there a slide or a tug chords on the side? Are you getting motorized window coverings? How are the items mounted and what is the amount of weight they can withstand? What type of warranty comes with your product and how long are they supposed to last? Investing in high quality products will save you a lot of headache down the road.
