13 Dec 5 Reasons to Choose Custom Shades & Blinds

Replacing window treatments can be a major investment. For a finished look and long lasting quality, custom blinds and shades are the industry standard. Plus, you don’t have to compromise on style while also receiving the protection of guarantees. Find out why this is an upgrade you won’t regret.

What are Custom Window Treatments?
Blinds, shades, shutters and drapes are considered “custom” when they are made to your exact window measurements. The alternative is “cut down” blinds and shades which are made in standard sizes and then cut to the customer’s measurements in big box stores.

5 Reasons to Choose Custom Blinds and Shades

1. Get a Perfect Fit

Custom blinds and shades are made to your exact measurements – down to the 1/8″. This means that your window treatments will fit much tighter to the side of the window so you don’t get gaps where light can shine in.

2. Proportions and Hardware Are Exactly Right
With non-custom cut-down window treatments, you can end up with less-than-perfect dimensions, cords that are off center, and slats must be removed to make the height just right.

When you go custom, your shades will be made by hand and the professionals do all the work for you to have a perfect fit right out of the box.

3. Build Your Dream Treatment with Custom Options
With the choice of hundreds of colors and many other available features, you won’t have to compromise on the look your room needs. Convenient lift options like cordless and motorization ensure that your blinds or shades are functional and beautiful.

Choose from a wide array of paints and stains to match trim perfectly. Vast fabric collections like the new Stacy Garcia Collection for Roller Shades allow you to match existing upholstery or make a statement with an exciting print.

4. Reduce Waste
Window treatments that are made-to-order don’t have built in waste like the cut down alternative. Less waste means we get to pass savings on to you and you’re making a more earth-friendly choice.

    My husband and I recently moved into a home and we need to get blinds installed. I appreciate the information about how custom treatments help you end up with centered cords and perfect dimensions. Another benefit of custom blinds is that they will last a lot longer that normal blinds and will be better suited to the light in your area.

    I think that the right blinds can make all the difference in a home. I love the idea of having custom blinds that are fit exactly for your style and your home! I also think having them custom would help them function easier.

    It’s interesting that you talked about how you don’t need to compromise the look of your room, if you decide to go with custom blinds. I have been wanting to redecorate my living room, and I wanted to add new blinds. I can see how it would be smart to get custom blinds, so I can get the exact color I need to match the furniture.

    There are a ton of reason to choose custom blinds for your new windows. As the article points out one of the biggest benefits you can gain from choosing them such as a custom fit. After all, one of the biggest problems with buying standard blinds is that they might not fit your window, especially if it is a custom built window too.
