Choosing Window Furnishings That Add Value to Your Home

Window furnishings can make a huge difference when it comes to the value of your home.

Window furnishings regulate the light and the heat in your home, which massively impact how everything else in your house looks and feels to potential buyers. Their style, functionality and the added security they bring to a property can make all the difference when it comes to selling.

Choosing the right window furnishing can boost the value of your home in excess of the cost of investing in them. Below we look at the different options and how to go about choosing one.

Window Treatment Options – Which is Best?

Rather than one being better than the rest in every situation, finding the best window treatment option is about choosing what is most suitable and functional for specific rooms and applications.
Some of the options to consider include:

  • Roller blinds – A simple, classy and affordable choice. Choose from blockout (ultimate privacy and darkness, ideal for bedrooms), light filtering (softens light, suitable for living areas) or sunscreen (provides daytime privacy and blocks UV rays) or a combination of these options.
  • Venetian blinds – Available in a variety of materials and suitable for a range of interior styles. Classic timber blinds are the perfect for those after a timeless, natural look while ThermaStyle and aluminium suits a more contemporary style and are also great for wet areas and outdoor applications.
  • Vertical blinds – Slat-like blinds that stack behind each other as the blinds are opened. Like Venetians, these blinds offer great light control, functionality and maintenance, making them a popular choice. They look particularly good on patio doors and large windows, making the ceiling look higher and adding a sense of class.
  • Plantation shutters – This stylish, modern window furnishing option is built into the actual frame of the window and is completely cordless, making for a clean look. They come in a variety of materials and styles and are popular due to their durability, light control and beautiful aesthetics.

Presentation and Decor

Be very particular when choosing window furnishings for your main, ‘show-off’ rooms, such as the living room or the kitchen. This is where people will be spending a lot of time and these are the rooms that make the biggest first impression when people enter your home.

Opt for neutral colours for your window furnishings in these rooms, as they appeal to a greater number of people and allow more flexibility for potential buyers who are imagining how they would impose their own tastes on the room.

Consider Functionality in Each Room

It’s important to choose window furnishings that show off the functionality of your home. This includes options that allow plenty of natural light during the day, improve insulation and effectively protect privacy. Don’t install window furnishings in the kitchen and bathroom that are prone to moisture damage. Find the right balance between what’s stylish and what works.
