How To Select Bedroom Window Treatments In Bluff City

April 03, 2016

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


Privacy is the most important reason to order bedroom window treatments. Drapes, blinds, and shades 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 allow you the most privacy. The solid louvers of plantation shutters can be adjusted so that they close completely. And bedroom shutters are mounted with a frame that ensures no gaps on the sides of the window. With sliding barn doors, you can slide the panels closed. But a slight gap on the sides of the window may be of concern based on the way your sliding barn doors are installed.

Light Control

For all the times 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 you can still see light coming in from the sides.

Some shades might 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 provide you with adequate room darkening. Sliding barn doors are built from solid wood that may block the light head on. However the gap on the sides of the panels does not seal off all the light.

The frame for all three plantation shutters 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. Keep in mind reclaimed wood shutters could have markings and holes that let in light. Now you can sleep in every day with these bedroom plantation shutters!

Energy Efficiency

It‘s not easy to maintain the temperature in the bedroom at a pleasant range all year round for a restful night’s sleep with the wrong window treatment. That’s why you’ll want to purchase for a window treatment for the bedroom with a high energy efficiency rating.

Polywood shutters insulate 70% better than the equivalent wood shutters, and 1600% better than aluminum blinds. According to third party testing, Polywood blocks up to 30° of temperature and reduces up to 45% of airflow. No other bedroom window treatment in Bluff City comes close. Want to stay toasty in bed in the winter and cool in the summer? Buy Polywood plantation shutters in your bedroom.


Bedroom window treatments are available in an array of styles and colors to complement your furniture. If you want to bring in the warmth of wood, install woven wood shades, Ovation wood plantation shutters, reclaimed wood shutters, sliding barn door shutters, or wood blinds. For a more modern look, metal blinds, cellular shades, or Polywood plantation shutters are your better alternative. Any of these bedroom window treatments can be customized with a selection of paints, stains, patterns, and more. Ask your window treatment professional about your color options in the Bluff City area.


When you’re purchasing bedroom window treatments, buy with quality in mind. Draperies, blinds, and shades are susceptible to losing their integrity, discoloration, and breaking within 10 years. Polywood plantation shutters, on the other hand, are made to last for more than 50 years. They’re treated with UV inhibitors, which means the paint color never loses its vibrancy. And made with our patented wood synthetic, shutter louvers will never crack or warp.
