When it comes to selecting the right shades and window coverings for your Toronto home, following a few simple tips will make the process easier and more successful. After all, the last thing you want is to have new treatments installed only to discover the fit, color, pattern, or style is all wrong. Before buying anything, consider the information provided.

Trends – Although there is no rule that you have to adapt current trends on window shades in Toronto, if you like buying the latest and greatest products available, then at least consider what 2018 has to offer. As an example, automation is a big deal this year. With that, you determine both light and privacy using a handheld remote control.

Style – The style of blinds and shades is another important factor. Even if you plan to incorporate window shutter blinds into your Toronto home decor, you want to select what looks and performs best based on your specific wants and needs. For instance, with blinds, you can choose between pleated, honeycomb, roller, Roman, and solar designs. As for blinds, you have options like wood, faux wood, vertical, horizontal, mini, and more. You also want the right style of shutters, whether plantation, café, or shaker.

Size – Perhaps the most critical tip has to do with the size of the new blinds or window shades for Toronto homes. Unfortunately, the most common mistake that people make is ordering the wrong size. As interior designers say, for any type of window treatment, measure not once or twice but three times. Even an error as small as a fraction of an inch can negatively impact the way your new window treatments look and function.

Color and Pattern – Because blinds, shades, and window shutters have become increasingly popular throughout Toronto, manufacturers now offer an abundance of options for both color and pattern. That means you have almost endless possibilities when making upgrades to your home. Although you could choose a color or pattern that fits with your current décor, since quality window treatments last a long time, you should probably go with something that would complement many different interior designs. That eliminates the need for you to purchase new blinds, shades, or shutters before the ones you have wear out. It also gives you more freedom when designing your home.
