Get These Simple Window Treatments For Phoenix

January 21, 2022

Have you ever seen a window covered with such dramatic drapery that it turned into the room’s focal point? Or went to open a blind just for it to skew in one direction or the other regardless of which string you pulled? Ornate or fussy window shades are overwhelming and troublesome. Most Phoenix homeowners prefer simple window treatments like elegant interior shutters, minimalist roller shades, and trendy cellular shades.

So try these simple window treatment ideas in your Phoenix home and say goodbye to complicated blinds and drapes.

Use Simple Louvered Shutters That Integrate Into Your Interior Design

One benefit of using simple window treatments in Phoenix is that they coordinate with most decor. Interior shutters are a perfect example. These louvered shutters have attractive straight lines and a smooth finish that give them an understated but stylish appearance. They look more like an architectural feature than window treatments. And you can buy them in multiple neutral hues, from the rich wood stains of Ovation® hardwood shutters to cool white faux-wood Polywood shutters.

Interior shutters are also simple to use. Rather than fussy strings, shutters have panels that can swing open when needed, and you can control the natural light by moving the tilt rod or the louvers up and down. You can open the panels when you want a lot of natural light or move the louvers to redirect light. Then close everything when you desire insulation, darkness, and privacy.

Effortlessly Operate Cordless And Motorized Roller Shades

A second simple window treatment idea for Phoenix residents, timeless roller shades are quintessentially simple. They have a flat sheet of material that rolls up inside a tube above your window when you tug the shade a little. Some people don’t want roller shades because they’ve only tried styles with cords that get tangled and look untidy. However, you can prevent these problems with cordless roller shades that have a sewn-in pull bar instead. Or really simplify things with motorized shades that work by remote control or a smart app.

Roller shades are an obvious option for Phoenix window covers because they have a clean, sleek appearance that works on almost any window. Their minimalist style goes with farmhouse, traditional, coastal, minimalist and other decor fads. The most challenging part about using roller shades is picking from the wide selection of choices on the market for fabrics, colors, and patterns. You can even choose from blackout, medium, and sheer opacities for the degree of privacy and natural light you desire.

Instantly Insulate Your Windows When You Close Your Cellular Shades

Cellular shades supply many similar benefits as roller shades. They simply look and work a bit differently. Rather than rolling up into a tube attached to your window, cellular shades are made from pleated fabric that folds up on itself when you open the shades. The “cells” that the pleats create give the shades an understated texture and better insulating properties texture. When you close your cellular shades, the cells hold some of the air that blows through your windows. Cellular shades provide a simple way to insulate your windows against drafts and give some flair to them.
