24 Aug Window Coverings Hollywood
When you enter a room, one of the first features that you will notice are the windows. With our high-end window coverings Hollywood service, your windows won’t be just visually palpable but also highly appealing.
Window coverings, otherwise called as window treatments, are an aspect of interior design that concentrates on windows. With a wide selection of window treatments available, our window coverings Hollywood service presents a showroom that showcases different types including cellular shades, roller shades, blinds, shutters, solar screens and drapes.
Dressing a window has many benefits. For one, it gives an aesthetic effect and splashes an added luxury and wow factor to a room. It also presents a cozy vibe, which makes the room even more inviting and comfortable. In addition to this, window coverings also enhance the style and functionality of the windows.
Window coverings offer more than just the aesthetics. In fact, another noted benefit of window coverings is protection. Window coverings give shade against the harshness of the sun. It blocks UV rays so it prevents the furniture from any possible damage and hampers wearing off the floors. Of course, since it blocks sunlight, it will definitely help you sleep better during the day. If you are fond of taking naps or starting your day late, or if you have children around the house, window coverings will work perfectly in allowing you to have a peaceful and undisturbed slumber. All types of window coverings offer this benefit. However, if you also want that television glare to be inhibited, the best choice would be solar shades. This is, in fact, the common type of window covering used for home cinemas with windows around.
Privacy is another upside of having a window covering. Especially in a place where you are surrounded by neighbors or a residential area where buildings are tightly cramped together, you don’t want the world to see all your activities at home, right? With the top-down-bottom-up feature of window coverings, you will not only have the right amount of privacy that you need, you will also have the ability to control the amount of light that comes into your room.
So, the next benefit of window coverings is light control. On a Sunday morning, do you want to start your day at 6 a.m.? Or do you want to sleep longer and have brunch when you wake up? If you are a fan of the latter, light control is absolutely something you will enjoy.
Insulation is also an added benefit of window coverings. During winter or summer when temperatures are extreme, window coverings help insulate your room, thereby keeping your energy bills lower. The best type of window coverings for this are cellular shades.
Our window coverings Hollywood service identifies all these features as more of a need than a want. Simply put, we guarantee that with everything we do, we are sure to make your window coverings highly functional, not to mention stylish and appealing.
Now that you know how beneficial window coverings are, the next question that is probably in your mind right now would be: “How do I choose the right window covering?”
There are a lot of factors that you have to consider in getting the right type of window covering. And although it sounds quite overwhelming, our window coverings Hollywood service will guide you all throughout the process.
The first factor you need to consider before choosing a type of window covering is the room you are going to use it with. If you are going to use it for your bathroom, you better choose a window covering that offers maximum privacy. For bedrooms, you should probably choose something that adds privacy, allows easy light control and helps maintain a balanced temperature. Another factor that you need to consider is the texture of the fabric. You have to take note that the thicker the fabric, the more light it draws in as compared to ultra-sheer fabrics.
Our window coverings Hollywood service offers a multitude of choices – from the most basic types of window treatments including curtains, drapes, sheers, shades, blinds, shutters, valances, cornices, swags and cascades to the most unpopular ones and even customized coverings.
Shades, which are very popular since the 90s, have a limitless range of styles, colors and patterns that can suit any window size. It has a pulley system that allows you to control the light coming into your room, as well as the amount of privacy that you get. Blinds are basically the same with shades but the materials used for blinds are usually wood, metal or vinyl. Although it offers different colors and sizes, its selection is a bit limited compared to shades. Another thing about blinds is that it can be hung horizontally or vertically over a window.
For a house with a cottage, coastal or rustic setting, particular window coverings work best to fit the theme. One common window covering for these types of rooms are shutters because of the old-style vibe it presents. Shutters cannot be pulled up and down like shades and blinds. Some shutters, though, can be opened and closed like a regular door. They are usually made of wood or faux wood, and they have small louvers that can sometimes be manipulated to open or shut.
Swags, cascades and valances, on the other hand, are those that are typically used as decorative window treatments for the top part. They add elegance and statement to a room, and are more commonly used in dining and living rooms, and sometimes in home libraries, too.
Cornices are those that are made of hard materials like wood or sometimes metal, and are placed on the top portion of the window to conceal any underlying hardware and window treatment. For classic-themed rooms, cornices are usually styled with intricate carvings. For modern and contemporary rooms, cornices are often just simple, smooth frames.
