Products / Our tips for selecting the correct window treatment

Do your research

The best thing you can do before making any window treatment decisions is know your options. The reality is that you have the choice of soft furnishings, external venetians, external shutters, plantation shutters, Roman blinds, roller blinds, venetian blinds, and awnings. Each comes with their own suite of benefits, from natural light control to durability. Understanding what you’re after functionally (not just aesthetically) will be a big determining factor for the window treatment you choose.
