Homeowner’s Guide: 3 Window Treatment Mistakes to Avoid

This year may be a great time to do some home improvement projects, and installing window treatments is an easy way to jazz up your home. They can instantly update and redefine your interior design.

Although installing window treatments may seem easy to do, there are common mistakes to keep in mind. To help you, Beltway Blinds, your local source for high-quality window treatments in Washington, DC, offers the following mistakes to avoid.

  • Not knowing what you need. You may come across attractive window coverings, such as drapes or curtains, for sale at discounted prices online or in the store. Before buying anything, ask yourself, “Are these suitable for my windows?” Some coverings may be too long, short or wide for your existing windows, so accurate measurements are critical.
  • Choosing the wrong hardware. You will have problems installing your new window treatments if you choose the wrong type of hardware. For example, if you choose hardware that is not anchored correctly and cannot support the weight of your coverings, this may eventually damage the walls.
  • Opting for do-it-yourself installation. Selecting and installing the right drapes, shades or blinds for your windows involves dozens of steps and many tiny details to get right. Pay a little more and enjoy beautiful, luxurious window treatments when you hire a professional.
