Building a Home

Are you building a home in 2017? There are so many things to think about when building a home like floor plan, paint colors, size of the living room, types of windows, trim, flooring and the list goes on. We don't want you to forget to think about the type of window coverings you want in your home. Depending on the type of product you are wanting, it can take anywhere from 2-6 weeks to get in your product. Waiting till the last minute to order will leave you moving in and possibly covering your windows with a towel or temporary paper blinds.

Kyle and I are currently in the process of building our own home and knew before we even picked a floor plan that our bedrooms and the front of our house would have shutters. The windows in our home that are getting shutters will not be trimmed because we are using a shutter frame. Since we are building in the middle of nowhere Kyle was thinking that the back part of our home wouldn't need anything covering the windows. This was a fine idea, until I really started thinking about having nothing over those windows. There have been numerous homes that we have been in where the lady of the house needs a window covered for her own peace of mind at night. That was me, when I really sat down and started thinking of having nothing over my back windows, I just can't bring myself to be okay with that idea. What would I do when Kyle was out of town? It will be impossible for me to avoid that part of our future home when I'm there alone. This lead us to a discussion of mezzanine motorized shades for our back windows. This will allow the shades to be up most of the time and unnoticed and allow us the amazing view of our backyard. However, when I'm home alone and feel the need for privacy I can lower the shades on the back of the home. What about you? Do you have an amazing day time view of the golf course, back yard or lake? Are you thinking that you need some privacy once the sun goes down? If you're building and just not sure what you want to cover your windows with, give us a call. Let us help you find the perfect window covering for every room in your home.
