Buying Window Treatments: A Helpful Guide 

When buying window treatments it’s easy to become overwhelmed by the process. There are so many products available, decisions to be made and variables to consider when making selections. At Bazaar Home Decorating, we have developed a helpful guide to assist you and we will be with you every step of the way.

Which Type Do You Prefer? 

Why don’t we decide together? There are two categories of window treatments to choose from, soft and hard treatments. Soft coverings are draperies and shades-made from a variety of fabrics and natural materials-they bring texture and beauty to your space. Hard treatments refer to shutters and blinds- these are made of wood or metal, are easy to maintain and feature adjustable slats. By identifying which type you prefer, we are on our way to designing the home of your dreams.

How would you answer this question? “I need window treatments for…”

Every home is unique, right? The number of windows, the all matters when buying window treatments. Begin by narrowing down your needs. What rooms are you concentrating on? What issues are you trying to remedy? Create a wishlist specific to your home, here are a few common window needs our clients mention each day. Any sound familiar to you? 

  • Room Darkening
  • Privacy
  • Light Control
  • Glass Doors
  • Energy Efficiency
  • Hard-to-reach Windows


The Right Direction.

So what is the right direction? Because your home is unique, there is no “one-size fits all” solution when buying window treatments. But, a very important variable to consider is the direction your windows face. Think about the way the sun affects the rooms of your home. Do some windows deal with light & heat all day long and others don’t? Allow our design team to evaluate your space and recommend a treatment that improves the interior atmosphere of your home.
