Your rental property should be welcoming and attractive to all potential tenants, which means you need to choose window covers that last. Window covers, such as blinds or shutters, provide many benefits for your rental property. Some of these benefits include increased privacy, and better energy efficiency since the renters can control the light entering the home.
What window covers are best for a rental property where numerous tenants (and their children and pets) come and go out of your property? Here is a guide to help you select the best window covers from your window treatment specialist.
More durable than classic aluminum blinds, wooden blinds offer attraction and security to your rental home. Wooden blinds are available in many hues and wood species to give your rental property an attractive, comfortable allure.
If wooden blinds are outside your budget, then consider faux wood blinds instead. Faux wood blinds are moisture-resistant, making them ideal for every room in the home, including the bathrooms and kitchen. Faux wood blinds are durable but less expensive than real wood, and these blinds come in various textures and colors as well.
Roman shades add instant appeal to an otherwise plain rental home. These coverings are also energyefficient and cost-effective. Roman shades can be custom-fit on living room windows, dining room windows, and other large windows of your rental property to give your renters an upscale living space.
Roller shades operate similarly to Roman shades but lack the paneled appeal. For a simple, streamlined window cover in your rental property, roller shades are a basic window treatment that will please renters. You can upgrade to solar roller shades to reduce energy use within the home (solar shades keep more sunlight from entering the home).
Mini blinds are easy to install, cost-effective, and supply your renters with privacy. Mini blinds are a wise choice for a rental property because the blinds are easy to care for and clean. In addition, these blinds are also fire resistant. For these reasons, mini blinds are another ideal choice for your rental property's window treatments.
Honeycomb shades come in cordless styles to keep children and pets from getting tangled in the window covers. Honeycomb shades are known for their excellent light filtering abilities, but they're still an attractive and affordable window cover for a rental home.
Choose a double cell honeycomb shade over a singular cell shade - the thicker material will be able to hold up longer. Your window cover specialist can show you various options of honeycomb shades.
To ultimately give your rental property an upscale, charming appeal, make the commitment to interior shutters. Interior shutters are custom-fit inside your rental home's windows and can even be placed in humid areas of the home, such as the bathroom.
Since interior shutters are attached to windows instead of simply hanging from them like other window covers do, you don't need to worry about pets, children, or rowdy renters destroying interior shutters. You should discuss the different types of interior shutters with your window cover specialist.
Renters appreciate modern window coverings in a rental property. Between renters, check the window covers and have any missing or loose blinds repaired or replaced.
In the end, the type of window covers you should choose for your rental property is based on your budget, the appeal you want to give to your rental property, and the type of renters you have (for example, mini blinds may not be best if you rent to families).
