SHOPPING GUIDE FOR WINDOW COVERINGS

How to Choose Your Window Coverings By type of room
This article courtesy of Blinds.com

Kitchen:
Windows by a sink should be easy to clean. Faux wood blinds and aluminum miniblinds are the easiest to clean. Blinds that have smooth painted finishes, as opposed to rough, textured finishes (sandblasted) are the easiest to clean.

Master Bedroom:
Black out roller shades are very popular, as well as some room darkening honeycomb shades. Also effective are special horizontal wood blinds with the DeLight feature. They do not have route holes, preventing light from leaking into your room.

Master Bath:
Humidity doesn't ordinarily adversely affect any quality window treatments, even wood blinds. However, if your window treatment gets direct water pressure, fauxwood blinds are best. For additional privacy, consider those blinds without route holes (De-Light). If you're using vertical blinds, then consider the inherent approximately 1/2" gap below the vertical vanes near the sill, and determine if that is enough privacy for you - especially if the window is near your bath tub.

Nursery:
Of utmost concern is safety. Make sure your window blinds have the latest safety features, and that cords are not near cribs. Also be sure that if you get vinyl miniblinds that they are not the ones with hazardous lead. Blinds.com has NEVER sold those.

Darkening the room is usually the goal, so the blackout honeycomb shades are perfect. Window blinds with no route holes are also fine options.

Media Room:
Blackout honeycomb shades are most common. Some can even be made with side rails to eliminate all light. The De-Light feature should be added to wood blinds and mini blinds so that the light does not pierce through the route holes.

Study:
For a tailored look that's not too fussy, plantation shutters and wood blinds are appropriate.

Living Room:
For an elegant room, consider vertical soft shadings. They are quite popular and very stylish. Many designers frequently use them to camouflage less elegant, unattractive blinds.

Reprinted by permission. Get window blinds, shades, and plantation shutters at prices less than Home Depot, and less than Lowe's, too. Shop today and save at Blinds.com. America's #1 blinds store.
