Why Window Treatments?

Let’s set the scene.

You just bought a new house and you’re SO excited to move in. You grab the keys, unload the truck, then spend hours unpacking (most of) the boxes. You set things in place, rearrange endlessly and finally step back for your first look around. Furniture, lamps, rugs, it’s all there.

Somehow, it just doesn’t feel warm and inviting. 

Your windows are open and bright….maybe a little too bright.

You’ve thought about adding window coverings, but the cost and process seem intimidating. Most of your friends have purchased and hung ready-made panels for their windows, but they always appear ill-fitting and don’t seem to enhance the room at all. Because of this, you are already considering other options.

But are window treatments really worth the cost? Below are just a few of reasons why you should consider professional window coverings for your windows.

Why do Window Treatments?


This is an obvious reason. After all, your safety and privacy is important. Feeling comfortable in your own home really matters. But some window treatments do a better job of fully covering than others. And nothing is more satisfying than pulling the cord or pushing the button and having those coverings close with minimal effort. You really want them to work well every time you use them and not struggle with them.

Sound Enhancement

If you have high ceilings or wood floors you may notice that there is an echo or sounds bouncing around the room. Drapery panels can definitely help with absorbing these soundwaves and will make your rooms much more comfortable to live in.

Temperature Management

Temperature control in your home is hands-down one of the most important reasons to consider window treatments and coverings. The high cost of heating and cooling a home can be a great concern, especially if the home or windows are large.

Luckily, lined window coverings on your windows can keep out the intense heat of southern summers. Likewise, they can minimize the drafty cool of the winter months. When professionally measured and installed, the right window treatments greatly improve your home’s energy efficiency.

Window films – like Sunscape Window Film from Madico – can drastically reduce your heating and cooling costs as well. If you walk by your windows and feel a draft (or the radiating heat of the sun) you would definitely benefit from professional window treatments.


Almost more than any other element, window treatments coverings make your house a home. Nearly every time we finish an install, the homeowner says, “Wow, what a difference. Now I see how badly I needed them!”

The right window coverings, perfectly measured and carefully selected, are that missing element that can set your home apart. Adding these is often the final touch and make things look and feel truly finished.
