It might seem like picking the right size for your window coverings should be fairly easy and straight forward but often enough, when people try to undertake the process for themselves for the first time, they end up making some sort f mistake that can really mess up the nice look of their window coverings. Depending on how you would like your window coverings to hang, even a small difference sometimes can really change the way that your window coverings hang and the way that they fit in your home. If all window treatments were measured the same it would not be all that difficult to figure out but one of the problems with measuring for window coverings is that different kinds of window coverings need to be measured from different parts of the window frame depending on how they are supposed to look. This means that there are so many changing factors on how to measure one window treatment to the next that it s no wonder that people get confused and mess things up.
The best thing to do in a situation like this is to just call a professional who can do it for you so that you do not have to worry about it. Many people steer away from this option thinking that it would be too expensive for them but in fact going this route will probably end up saving you a bunch of money in the end. If you buy your Hunter Douglas window coverings from a nice interior decorating company like Home Trends or any other fairly decent place that specializes in home design, they usually have a free service where someone from the store will come by your home and do all of the measurements for you. Most of the time, the staff at the home decorating store like Home Trends will offer this service to you but just in case they do not or you do not hear anything about it for one reason or another, make sure to ask. It is common enough that most of the time if they have not offered the service to you yet, it was probably a mistake.
Since this is a free service most of the time, you are actually only getting the benefits of having someone who actually knows what they are doing. Since they not only know everything about Hunter Douglas window coverings in general but also how each of their specific Hunter Douglas blinds and shades work, they know exactly how to measure each window frame so that your new Hunter Douglas blinds or shades will fit perfectly into your window and look fabulous. Plus, if anything is to go wrong, since the measurements are the fault of the staff and not yours, you will not have to be responsible for any of the changes or altercations to your order. This way everything is quick, easy, and taken care of for you so that you can just sit back and enjoy your new, beautiful Hunter Douglas window coverings.
