How to...
Pick the Perfect
Window Treatment
Today!
Window treatments play an
important role in the overall
ambiance of a room and can
quickly become a focal point. They
are truly an accessory that
should be carefully considered
before making a decision.
The tips below should help you answer the question,
"How can I pick the perfect window treatment?"
Tip 1: Gather Ideas
Page through catalogues or go online to gather ideas for the type of
window treatments you like and that will work in your home/office.

Tip 2: Consider Insulation Factors
Window treatments can serve as an insulation layer on your windows.
If insulation is of importance, look for thicker linen and cotton blends.
If insulation is not of importance, lighter fabrics or lace may be a
good option.
Tip 3: Decide on Color
Solid colors and patterns work well for window treatments. For ease in
deciding, narrow down your choices to just two or three color
combinations. Also, keep in mind that your window treatment colors
should either match the carpet, or one main color theme in your room.
Tip 4: Consider Lining
Lining will protect your window treatments for years to come. This extra
layer also provides privacy. If you absolutely must have something that
doesn't have a lining, consider adding a second curtain rod that can hold
a lighter set of sheets.
Tip 5: Decide on Manual or Motorized
Manual window treatments are a great place to start as they will
effectively cover an area. Utilizing window treatments with an automated
device makes things even greater! Motorized window treatments allow
you to control your window treatments with the push of a button,
eliminates the danger of dangling cords, and avoids climbing on or over
furniture to access a cord/wand.
Tip 6: Consult a Professional
Most window treatment companies offer FREE consultations. Contact a
professional, show them your ideas and have them provide you with an
estimate to measure, order and install your window treatments. (If under a
time constraint, be sure to ask how long the product will take to arrive!)
Tip 7: Hire a Professional Installer
Most people aren't especially skilled at installing window treatments. You'll
save a lot of time and money by hiring a professional installer. The right

Considering, purchasing, and installing new window treatments can
be an easy process. Following the tips above should help you make
the right choice in finding the perfect window treatment!
MWT Retrofits....
Ever thought about motorizing your current
blinds, shades or drapery treatments and/or how
motorization would make life a little easier?
Imagine...no more getting out of your chair or
bed, just push a button to raise or lower
your shades, open or close your blinds or traverse your drapery
treatments. You can even get your treatments to operate when you are
not home for energy efficiency!
Motorized Window Treatments (MWT) can help you add a little ease to
your life by motorizing your existing window treatments!
Below is just a sampling of the options available...

It is also an excellent option when running wires to the shade or from
the shade is not an option. This motor can be battery operated, solar
powered or plugged in using a low voltage power supply. This motor can
be controlled through a remote control, wireless wall switch and/or a home
automation system.

Retrofitting Shades with Somfy® Sonesse ST40 AC 110v Radio

automation system.
When MWT motorizes a window treatment with this motor our prices
