Try Out These Simple Window Treatments For San Jose

January 21, 2022

Have you ever noticed a window covered with some over-the-top drapery that it appeared to be the focal point of the room? Or tried to open a blind only to have it tilt in one direction or the other no matter which cord you used? Ornate or complicated window shades are overwhelming and annoying. Most San Jose homeowners prefer simple window treatments like stylish interior shutters, minimalist roller shades, and modern cellular shades.

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

Use Simple Interior Shutters That Integrate Into Your Interior Design

One perk of owning simple window treatments in San Jose is that they go with almost all decor. Interior shutters are a ideal example. These louvered shutters have appealing parallel lines and a smooth finish that give them a subtle but chic appearance. They look more like an architectural detail than window treatments. And you can buy them in several neutral hues, from the rich wood stains of Ovation® hardwood shutters to crisp white faux-wood Polywood shutters.

Interior shutters are simple to use too. Instead of fussy pull strings, shutters have panels that can swing open when needed, and you can control the light with the louvers by moving the louvers themselves or the tilt rod up and down. You can open the panels when you want a lot of sunlight or tilt the louvers to divert light. Then close everything whenever you desire privacy, darkness, and insulation.

Easily Use Cordless And Motorized Roller Shades

An additional simple window treatment idea for San Jose homeowners, classic roller shades are the very definition of simple. They are made of a flat sheet of material that rolls up into a tube over your window when you tug the shade a little. Some people don’t want roller shades because they’ve only tried styles with strings that get tangled and look untidy. However, you can prevent these issues with cordless roller shades that use a sewn-in pull bar instead. Or simplify things more with motorized shades that work by remote control or a smart app.

Roller shades are an easy solution for San Jose window covers because they have a clean, sleek design that works on many windows. Their minimalist style matches farmhouse, coastal, traditional, minimalist and other decor trends. The most difficult aspect of using roller shades is choosing from the array of options you have for colors, patterns, and fabrics. You can even choose between sheer, medium, and blackout opacities for the level of natural light and privacy you desire.

Easily Insulate Your Windows When You Shut Your Cellular Shades

Cellular shades supply several of the same benefits as roller shades. They simply look and operate a little differently. Instead of pulling up into a tube mounted on your window, cellular shades have fabric pleats that fold and gather up when you open them. The “cells” that these pleats create give the shades better energy efficiency and an understated texture. When you shut your cellular shades, their cells trap some of the air that slips through your windows. Cellular shades are a simple option to insulate your windows against drafts and give some flair to them.
