Top 5 Window Covering Features in Toronto

top 5 window covering features in Toronto

When you think of your home, of course it’s unique to you. But, we all have the same weather. We all have windows. That means, homeowners in the Toronto area are often looking for the same solutions. At Night & Day Decor, we’ve put together a list of the top 5 window covering features. And, as it turns out, not all of the solutions are for light control. We shouldn’t be surprised that homeowners have style on their list of top features…

Room Darkening

When the light is too bright, it’s just too bright. Whether you want to sleep in on the weekends, put little ones down for an afternoon nap (or take one yourself!), watch a movie in a theater-like atmosphere, or block the late afternoon sun, room darkening and blackout shades are an amazing option.

Glass Doors

Stepping outside for some much-needed fresh air is a top benefit of having glass doors in your home. But, no matter if it’s doors that lead to your condo’s balcony, or a slider that takes you to your backyard space, there’s a good chance the window covering features you need are the same. You need an option to control the light and privacy. Glass doors often act as large windows; the challenge comes when needing to access the doors on a regular basis. We’ve got a wide selection of choices for light control, privacy and convenient access!

Woven Fabrics

Does it surprise you that Toronto area homeowners look for style elements as part of the top 5 window covering features? We could say it surprises us, but to be honest, we KNOW that you all love design! Woven fabrics are the height of style, adding dimension and texture for an earthy, organic vibe. One of our most popular collections, Provenance Woven Wood Shades, comes in a wide variety of color-ways and woven designs.

Irregular Shaped Windows

Custom windows need custom solutions. Specialty shaped windows, like angled and arched windows, bring an architectural look to the design of your home. But, when the sun shines through, you still need control. Many homeowners hesitate to cover these windows for two reasons: They don’t know what options are available, and they aren’t sure they want to cover up the design. It’s for this reason that we love working with families–we will guide you to ideas that offer everything you want without sacrificing what you love.

Sheer Fabrics

You already know how important sunlight is–and how much you love the view of the outside world. That’s why sheer fabrics are in the top 5! Entering light is softened, but still capable of illuminating your home. The view is still available through sheers. What you should know is that we have a number of window shade collections that allow for diffused light and enhanced view-through. Some of these sheer shades feature solid fabric vanes that can change position to close off the light and view. That means, it’s all up to you. Others offer the dual shades option so you can add a secondary blackout shade when you need it.
