Chesterton Blinds

When it comes to window treatments, blinds are a great option for controlling the amount of light that comes in your room during the day. The question is should you choose horizontal or vertical ones? Take a look at the differences and see if you can decide what style would work best for your windows.

The horizontal style is generally preferred in rooms that are facing North or South because of the angle that they are able to filter the light. They are also great in rooms where you want privacy, such as a bedroom. These window treatments can be completely closed up and you will not have the risk of them being accidentally opened.

Window Coverings


Window treatments are a fun way to put the finishing touch on any room. Shades come in several different styles and it is important to know what each of them can do for your window. This guide will help you decide which style would look best.

The most basic type of shade is the roller. A roller shade is moved up and down by a pulley. The roller can come in several types such as fabric, bamboo, and silhouette. These are great for controlling light in the room.

The Roman style is popular because it looks luxurious while still having the ease of being a shade. When it is down, the panel of fabric is flat, but when you raise it, the shade appears folded horizontally. This look is perfect for a dining room.


Decorating your home can be a fun experience, but also a challenging one. There are so many different aspects of the room you must consider. One thing some people forget about is window treatments. Curtains are essential to pulling together a room. Here are three tips to help you select window treatments for your home.

The first tip when choosing window treatments is to select a style that will match your furniture, décor, and style of the room. It is not a good idea to decide on one type of curtain and then use it in every room in your home. A style that works in your living room may not work in your child’s room.
