  • Frequently Asked Questions

    • What are the benefits of custom window treatments?

      Custom window treatments are designed to perfectly fit your windows, ensuring maximum functionality and aesthetic appeal. They offer superior light control, privacy, and energy efficiency. Furthermore, they give you the freedom to choose materials, designs, and styles that best complement your interior.

    • How do I choose the right window treatment for my home?

    • Are motorized window treatments worth the investment?

      Absolutely! Motorized window treatments offer convenience, safety, and energy efficiency. They can be controlled with a simple touch of a button, eliminating the need for cords, which can pose a hazard, particularly for children and pets. They can also be integrated into your home automation system, enabling you to schedule when your window treatments open and close for optimal energy use.

    • How often should I replace my window treatments?

      The lifespan of window treatments depends on the type of treatment, the quality of the material, and how well they are maintained. On average, window treatments last around 7 to 8 years. However, high-quality window treatments can last much longer with proper care. If your window treatments are faded, damaged, or no longer match your interior decor, it might be time for a replacement.

    • What are the benefits of window film?

      Window film is a cost-effective way to enhance the performance and aesthetics of your windows. It provides heat control, reduces glare, blocks harmful UV rays, offers added privacy, and can even contribute to the decorative appeal of your windows.
