How To Pick Bedroom Window Treatments In Kingsport

When you’re searching for a window covering for your bedroom in Kingsport, installation, privacy, light control, energy efficiency, and color are key things to assess. What’s the best window treatment between plantation shutters, sliding barn doors, blinds, and shades? Think about these 5 things when ordering bedroom window treatments in Kingsport, TN.


Privacy is the most important criteria for installing bedroom window treatments. Shades, drapes, and blinds can provide you with an adequate shield from prying eyes. But their generally thin material means shadows and silhouettes are noticeable.

Plantation shutters and sliding barn doors, conversely allow you the most privacy. The solid louvers of plantation shutters can be adjusted so that they close entirely. And you can rest assured that there are no gaps on the sides of the window since bedroom shutters are installed with a frame. With sliding barn doors, all you have to do to get more privacy is slide the panels closed. Depending on how the barn doors are mounted, there might be a slight gap on the sides of the window.

Light Control

When you want to sleep in, block out an annoying street light, or ignore the full moon, you need a light-blocking bedroom window treatment. Blinds are not the best at keeping the room dark. The material they’re made of is usually thin. And light still filters in from the sides.

Some shades can give you enough light blocking. And some blackout curtains can be effective at reducing the brightness in the room. Some blackout curtains can be effective at reducing the brightness in the room. And some shades may give you adequate room darkening. Sliding barn doors are built from solid wood that can block the light head on. However the gap on the sides of the panels does not seal off all the light.

All plantation shutters are installed with a frame that seals off sun rays. And their louvers can lay flat against each other, to create the darkest possible space. Both Ovation® wood and Polywood® shutters louvers can be closed to block out light. However, reclaimed wood shutters are likely to have markings and holes that let in light. Ignore the moonlight every day with these bedroom plantation shutters!

Bedroom window treatments are available in a variety of styles and colors to complement your furniture. If you’re looking to add the warmth of wood, choose woven wood shades, Ovation wood plantation shutters, reclaimed wood shutters, sliding barn door shutters, or wood blinds.

When you’re purchasing bedroom window treatments, buy with quality in mind. Draperies, blinds, and shades are likely to discolor, break, and lose their integrity within 10 years.

And made with our patented wood synthetic, shutter louvers will never crack or warp.
