Selecting the right window covering

Whether you are looking for something traditional or modern, something to dress a space or something to reduce heat and light entering the house, there are several things you need to consider when selecting window coverings.


How much light do you want to let into the room and how much control do you want over light levels at any given time?


What is the colour scheme of your home overall? Do you want to make a feature of the window dressing or have it blend in? Did you want a fabric with texture to give a more natural look?


Have the fabrics you are considering been quality tested to go the distance? Do they withstand staining and fading? Are you looking for something that will also reduce noise and save energy and does the product you are looking at provide that?


Are you looking to reduce the amount of heat entering your home to save on energy bills in summer? If so, you need to ask if the product you are looking at has been rated to reduce heat transfer, reducing cooling costs in summer.


What looks good doesn’t always work well, especially if you have young children or pets in the home. All Shadeview products are child safety compliant to keep little hands and bodies away from any chords. We also offer manual and motorised cordless options.
