How To Measure Window Blinds for Bay Windows
Phoenix, AZ (Vocus) October 21, 2009
Blinds Chalet publishes tips on how to install window blinds for unusually shaped windows. Twenty five percent of heating and cooling is lost through windows reports the Department of Energy. Don't let unusual size or unusual shape windows go uncovered. "Window treatments do more than increase a home's value," says Chris Stanley of Blinds Chalet, "they can be great insulators by deflecting the sun's rays and heat in the summer and by preventing heat loss in the winter. Window blinds can make a surprising difference in your energy costs."
Some of the topics published are:
- French Doors: Use traditional door blinds with outside mounts and 'hold downs' to prevent blinds from swinging. Exact measurements are key. Read "How to Measure for French door or Traditional Door Blinds".
- Corner Windows: Overlap blinds mounting side brackets to the side of the window seal or ceiling. Read "Corner Window Blinds".
- Angle Top Windows: Leave angle top open, hanging blinds or shades under angled portion. Read "Blinds for Angled Top Windows"
- Bay Windows: Use more than one window treatment. There will be slight gap where the window treatments meet. Read "How To Measure Window Blinds for Bay Windows".
- Large Windows: Use two blinds on one headrail - 2 on 1 Headrail Horizontal Blinds - or use two separate blinds with a common valance. Read "Blinds for Large Windows".
