If you’re browsing through window coverings, there are several different types of residential window coverings, and more often than naught, you are spoilt for choice. When it comes to picking and installing window treatments that suit your requirements, you are left with a ton of questions but not many answers. At Sensational SEAMS, we want you to have as much information as possible so that you can make informed decisions. To ensure this is possible, we have answered some of the most frequently asked questions about choosing window treatments for your home.

1. There are so many different windows in our home! Where do I start?

I always like to start with those rooms that are the most important and need to be covered. Privacy in the bedrooms and bathrooms is usually the priority.

2. How do I deal with light and privacy?

There are different privacy levels – sheer, semi-sheer, semi-opaque and opaque.

Sheer is the most see through and least private. Semi-sheer offers less see through. Semi-opaque provides privacy with light, and opaque provides the most private option with no light penetration.

3. Can I get light and privacy in one treatment?

Yes absolutely! You can have light control on the top portion of the window and privacy on the bottom part of the window, or do a double treatment with blinds and drapery.

4. What about hard to reach windows?

PowerView Motorization is the best option for tall windows or windows in awkward locations. Control them with the touch of a button or control it with your smart devices. Its convenience makes it an ideal option.

5. What about cleaning?

All window treatments can be cleaned with a feather duster, low suction vacuum, or ultrasonically cleaned. Some are washable and wipeable too.

6. What about measuring?

We will come in and professionally measure all your windows taking into consideration obstructions with the best possible results.

7. Do you have a showroom or do you come to our home?

Yes to both! You can visit our showroom by appointment to see the different styles of window treatments. You can experience the quality and work of our custom drapery and valances. The Motorization shades are great to try out with the remote controls and iPad as well as Google home. We would also love to come to your home to see your personal style and find the best possible solution for your needs. It’s where we can dream of your best solutions with color coordination and fabric selections.

8. Do you install?

Yes, we do! Professional installation is achieved with our master installer. Great care is taken to ensure all products ordered are fit to create a beautiful look and function, tall ladders and hard to reach places are not a problem. Your dreams become a reality with Sensational SEAMS.
