It is very important to take the right steps when preparing your home for window coverings. Getting new blinds and shades on your windows and keeping them looking great for years to come is a simple process, but it surely does require expertise and some diligence to get the perfect look and fit for your home.
For first-timers, it is common to have these mistakes that most homeowners make and we do hope that these dos and don’ts lists will save you from frustrations:
DO order samples
It will not only give you an accurate representation of what your window treatment looks like, but it also makes it easy to compare them with your furniture, your walls, and other décor in your home to find the perfect match. Worry less, here at Couvrant we bring samples. We know ordering samples is time-consuming and a little bit tiring and as much as possible we want our clients to feel at ease. Our promise is to make things easier for you!
DON’T place your order without taking precise measurement
Keep in mind that if not all then probably most of the window treatments are customized or it defeats its purpose of controlling the light and increasing privacy. Blinds and shades that don’t fit perfectly are less effective at both.
