Frequently Asked Questions About Shutters & Window Blinds

At Shutters and Blinds By Design, we get asked a lot of questions each day about the services that we offer. While we are happy to oblige and answer any questions that you may have, we also want to make it easy for you by answering a few of the most commonly asked ones here:

Q. How do I choose the right window treatment?

A. There are a number of factors that can impact the decision-making process. For starters, know about any possible HOA guidelines that could put limitations on your choices. Budget is another important factor. From there, think about factors like the amount of light control and privacy that you want. What surprises most Raleigh homeowners is that details like appearance and color are practically the last deciding factors.

Q. Do I have to have the same type of treatments in each room?

A. As mentioned above, unless your HOA has specific guidelines about your window treatments, then it is up to you. Some homeowners prefer a more uniform look throughout the entire home and others want a different style of window dressing for each room in the house.

Q. Can window treatments help with energy-efficiency?

A. The amount of energy-efficiency 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 household more energy-efficient which saves you money on your utilities each month and also makes your home more environmentally responsible. Honeycomb or cellular shades are usually considered the most efficient because they, by design, have air pockets that act as additional insulation.

Q. How does motorization help?

A. As the local leading window blind company, we are proud to offer cutting-edge technology in this field. That includes motorization, a user-friendly app and even voice command operation. It means you finally use your window treatments, can set them on a schedule and can get maximum energy-efficiency.

Q. Would closet organizational systems help my household?

A. Every homeowner and household can benefit from being more organized. In fact, having your closets organized will spill over into the rest of your home and even your day-to-day life. You will find that you have more space, are able to save time during tasks like getting ready in the morning, and will feel less anxiety about the status of your home.
