Answers from Virginia Beach’s Authorities at My Blind Spot

Do you have a question regarding our window treatments in the Virginia Beach or surrounding area of Virginia ? My Blind Spot has taken the time to answer several of the questions we frequently receive from customers. If you don’t find the answers you seek, please reach out to us with additional queries. We’d love to hear from you!

Should I Consider Window Blinds, Shutters, Drapes, or Curtains?

The question we’re asked most often is what’s the difference between the various window treatments we offer and how to know which is right for your needs. There is no “one-size-fits-all” when it comes to window treatments. Whether you select window blinds, draperies, curtains, shades, or shutters, you’ll enjoy shade and privacy for many years to come. However, certain options are geared more toward privacy, energy-efficiency, or style than others, so it’s always best to ask our experts during a personal consultation. We offer sophisticated products in every window treatment category in versatile colors, styles, textures, and materials to give you the best selection. You don’t have to choose the same type of window treatments for every room in your home or business. Sometimes selecting the same color enough to unify the space. Don’t be afraid to mix-and-match your options

What’s Different About Custom & Ready-Made Window Treatments?

Ready-made window treatments what you’ll find in a big-box retailer. While these are designed for convenience and immediate needs, windows can vary considerably in width, height, and shape. Selecting custom-made window treatments ensures an exact fit every time. Custom-made window treatments speak to your unique style. They also give you more options for color, pattern, fabric, trim and hardware to complement your home’s décor.

 What’s the Most Common Mistake I Should Avoid When Shopping?

Buying draperies or curtains that don’t have proper fullness or length are two of the most common mistakes we see among customers. You can avoid these by having us measure your windows accurately during a free in-home consultation. Installing new window treatments incorrectly is also a common mistake. Lucky for you, My Blind Spot also offers expert window treatment installation in the Virginia Beach, VA area.

Can I Get Window Treatment Samples Before Purchasing Them?

Absolutely! Visualization is essential when it comes to deciding on fabrics for window treatments. Seeing colors, textures and patterns in your space with your lighting makes an incredible difference. When you schedule a complimentary in-home consultation with our team, we’ll bring samples to your home or office to make your selection process easier. If there’s something you’d like to see, don’t be afraid to ask!

What Are Blackout Blinds? Where Do You Recommend Them?

Blackout blinds block all light from entering a room, which is ideal for a home theater or bedroom to promote better rest, although we’re happy to install them wherever you want them. Room-darkening treatments may limit the amount of light entering a room, but they do not black it out completely.

Are Your Window Treatments Safe for Pets and Children?

Our manufacturers design blinds, shades and hardware with the safety of children and pets as their number one priority! Blinds, shades and draperies with cords or looped cords are made with shorter cords and cord loop lengths.  Looped Cords are also fastened down using cord tensioners to eliminate the risk of strangulation for small children and pets. Manufacturers have evolved their offerings. To include cordless and motorized window treatment options. Products that can utilize these features are roller and solar shades, cellular shades, and roman style and sheer shades. Just about any window treatment can be motorized.

Does Your Team Provide Window Treatment Installations?

While you could choose to install your own window treatments, we strongly recommend professional installation for your safety and satisfaction with the results. Whether you need office, bedroom, kitchen, or living room curtains installed, our team would be happy to help. From faux wood blinds to plantation shutters and sheer curtains, we can size up your window covering needs to suggest the best type, size, and style to accommodate your space. We’re also glad to make suggestions for maintaining your window treatments long after the installation is complete to keep them looking their best.

How Do Window Treatments Help with Energy-Efficiency?

Many window treatments help improve energy-efficiency, including solar and cellular shades, blinds, and layered draperies. Selecting the right window treatments to keep your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter is essential to making them more energy-efficient. In addition to providing an extra layer of window insulation and privacy, some window treatments also help block unwanted outside noise. Be sure to ask us about the best options!
