Try Out These Simple Window Treatments For Tampa

January 21, 2022

Have you ever noticed a window dressed with some elaborate drapery that it turned into the room’s focal point? Or attempted to raise a blind just to have it tilt in one direction or the other no matter which cord you used? Gaudy or fussy window shades are overwhelming and bothersome. Many Tampa homeowners prefer simple window treatments such as stylish interior shutters, sleek roller shades, and trendy cellular shades.

So try out these simple window treatment ideas in your Tampa home and say goodbye to difficult drapes and blinds.

Use Simple Louvered Shutters That Blend Into Your Home Decor

One advantage of having simple window treatments in Tampa is that they match almost all decor. Interior shutters are a excellent example. These louvered shutters have attractive straight lines and a smooth finish that give them a subtle but chic appearance. They look more like an architectural element than window treatments. And you can buy them in various neutral hues, from the rich wood stains of Ovation® hardwood shutters to crisp white faux-wood Polywood shutters.

Interior shutters are also simple to use. Instead of difficult cords, shutters have panels which can swing open when needed, and you can control the light by adjusting the the louvers or the tilt rod up and down. You can open the panels when you want a lot of natural light or tilt the louvers to divert light. Then close everything whenever you desire insulation, privacy, and darkness.

Effortlessly Use Motorized And Cordless Roller Shades

An additional simple window treatment idea for Tampa residents, classic roller shades are quintessentially simple. They have 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 desire roller shades if they’ve only tried the kind with strings that get tangled and look messy. But you can avoid such annoyances with cordless roller shades that use a sewn-in pull bar. Or simplify your life further with motorized shades that work with a remote control or smart app.

Roller shades are an easy option for Tampa window treatments because their clean, sleek appearance works on many windows. Their minimalist style matches farmhouse, traditional, coastal, minimalist and other design fads. The most difficult aspect of using roller shades is choosing from the plethora of choices you have for fabrics, patterns, and colors. You can even pick from blackout, medium, and sheer opacities for the degree of natural light and privacy you desire.

Shut Your Cellular Shades To Instantly Insulate Your Windows

Cellular shades offer many of the same benefits as roller shades. They simply look and operate a bit differently. Rather than rolling up into a tube attached to your window, cellular shades have fabric pleats that fold and gather up when you open them. Those pleats create “cells” that give the shades a subtle texture and better insulating properties texture. When you shut your cellular shades, the cells catch some of the breeze that blows through your windows. Cellular shades provide a simple option to insulate your windows against drafts and add a bit of style to them.
