When you buy your new house, you are going to have a lot of windows that you need to figure out what to do with. The window treatments that you used to have at your old house may not fit in with your new house or may just not fit your new windows. All of that means that you are going to need to find new window shades and window treatments. So, what can you do to find the window treatments that you need for your house?


One of the things that you can do is to decide what the purpose of your window treatments is. Different purposes need different kinds of treatments. For example, if you are worried about blocking UV rays and light that might cause a glare on your computer screen or TV, then you might want to look into something like solar shades. Solar shades can block the light and the UV rays, but they won't block your view, so you aren't going to lose anything. If you have sunlight pouring into your bedroom in the early morning and it wakes you up, your goal may be to have window treatments that block as much light as possible. You can get blackout shades and partner them with blackout curtains so that you get as much light blocked as possible. 

Privacy Needs

Another thing that you need to think about is what your privacy needs are going to be. Usually, your bedroom is going to have a lot of privacy needs, so you want to make sure that you have shades, blinds, or curtains that will make it so that no one can look into your windows. However, if your bedroom isn't going to have anyone near it who might be able to see into the window, you might want to consider something like sheer curtains. That will give you at least a semblance of privacy, but let you have your view. Sheers can be an option in places that need more property if you use them in combination with blinds or heavier curtains. The sheers can let you have some light and still make it hard for people to look into your house. 

If you are looking for new window treatments for your new house, then you need to think about a few things when you are trying to find the new blinds, shades, and curtains for your house.
