Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Check out some of our local team’s answers to some of the most common FAQs we encounter related to window blinds, shutters, window treatments, and window shades in Lawrence, Kansas City, and Overland Park, KS below.
How Should I Clean and Properly Care For My Window Treatments?
Both window blinds and shades are relatively easy to care for and maintain. Most products will require the use of a dry cloth to keep them free from dust and debris. In some instances, a slightly damp cloth may be used to gently clean. However, you should never ever submerge your Lawrence blinds, shutters, or shades in water, as this could cause damage.
Can Quality Window Treatments Help with Energy-Efficiency?
The amount of energy efficiency benefit depends on the type of window treatment that you have, but all of them can offer some level of window insulation. This helps make your house more energy-efficient, which as most people know, helps save you money on your utilities each month and also makes your home more environmentally responsible. Often cellular shades are considered the most energy-efficient because they, by design, have air pockets that act as additional insulation, however, the vast majority of quality window treatment options in Lawrence, KS can help.
What Are The Parts Of A Shutter Called?
A window shutter is usually comprised of 5 main components:
- Louvers: These are known as “the blades” of the shutters, and usually come in 2 1/2”, 3 1/2”, and 4 1/2” widths.
- The Tilt-Bar: This controls how open the shutter is, and can usually be found in the front, middle of the shutter, or hidden in the rear.
- The Top and Bottom Rails: These outline the shutters and contain the louvers between them.
- The Divider Rail: This runs through the center of some shutters, depending on size. When there’s a divider rail, the top and bottom louvers operate independently of each other.
- The Frame: This surrounds the shutter and finishes off the decorative look of the window, making it look nice and in your house.
Why Are Shutters The Most Popular Window Treatment?
If you’re looking for a window treatment that lasts over 10 years, saves you money on your energy bills, and looks beautiful on your windows, shutters are the choice for your home.
