How To Select Bedroom Window Treatments In St. George

April 03, 2016

When looking for a bedroom window treatment in St. George, energy efficiency, color, installation, privacy, and light control are some things to consider. What’s the best choice between blinds, shades, plantation shutters, and sliding barn doors? Here are 5 things to keep in mind when deciding on bedroom window treatments in St. George, UT.


Privacy is the most important criteria for buying bedroom window treatments. Drapes, blinds, and shades may give you an adequate screen from curious passersby. But their thin material means silhouettes and shadows may still be visible.

Plantation shutters and barn doors allow you ultimate privacy. The plantation shutter louvers can be adjusted so that they close all the way. And you can rest assured that there are no gaps on the sides of the window since bedroom shutters are mounted with a frame. With sliding barn door shutters, you can slide the panels closed. A slight gap on the sides of the window may occur depending on how your sliding barn door shutters are installed.

Light Control

When you want to ignore the full moon, sleep in, or block out an annoying street light, you need a bedroom window treatment that can block light. Blinds, like shades and curtains, are not the best at darkening the room. The material they’re made of is usually thin. And the light still comes in from the sides.

Certain types of shades can give you adequate room darkening. 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 can provide you with adequate light blocking. Sliding barn doors are built from solid wood that may block the light head on. But the gap on the sides of the panels does not seal off the light completely.

The frame for all plantation shutters seals off sun rays. And their louvers can lay flat against each other, to create the darkest possible room. Both Polywood® and Ovation® wood shutters louvers can block light when closed. Keep in mind reclaimed wood shutters are likely to have markings and holes that let in light. Sleep in any day of the week with these bedroom plantation shutters!
