Today, your home is probably the largest investment you make. So when you add improvements, you should select them wisely. If you can reduce your expenses while adding value to your home, do it. Custom shades, sheers, blinds, draperies, shutters, and curtains will not only reduce your energy bill, but will display your personal style. Off-the-shelf window treatments are limited in size, color, style, texture, and function.

At Window products serving Connecticut, we carry a wide selection of window treatments that can increase your home’s value while also helping to cut your energy bills. Our design consultants and professionally trained and certified installers will complement your windows with perfect function and a beautiful, finished look.

Custom Window Treatments Can Save You Money

Windows can lose as much as 50% of a home’s cooling and heating. Hunter Douglas, the industry leader in custom window treatments, creates window treatment products that can contribute to saving energy at the window. Hunter Douglas looks at how the following can be incorporated into all their products:

Daylight – transform natural light, reducing the need for other artificial lighting while saving energy.

Solar Heat – harness solar heat in the winter and minimize it in the summer.
Insulation – reduce energy consumption and create a more comfortable living area while saving heating and cooling costs.

The Right Fit

Have you ever purchased the “right size” of off-the-shelf blind, only to find that it doesn’t actually fit your window? That is because window openings are not always perfectly square. Specialty shaped windows are an even greater challenge.

A professional installer will take three measurements: top, bottom, and middle. This helps ensure that your new window treatment will fit perfectly. They will also determine which mounting option is best for your window as well as your lifestyle.

Inside mount – inside the window opening, offering more insulation at the window. This might leave slight light gaps on either side.

Outside mount – adds inches beyond your window opening and/or molding to eliminate the light gap altogether.

Display Your Style With Custom Window Treatments

Custom window treatment possibilities are endless. You can mix and match fabrics, colors, textures and options. Product selection can be as unique as your decorating style. Hunter Douglas has blinds, shades, sheers, and shutters to transform any window into a work of art.

Combine Window Treatments

Pull your whole room together with color and personality by adding custom draperies, top treatments, cornices, or valances to new or existing window treatments.
