As much as any homeowner would like having a limitless budget for window coverings, cost can be an important guide to choosing the right coverings for your home. While window treatments from some companies can be overpriced, other companies offer budget-friendly options that may not last half as long as you might hope. To avoid the hassle and expense of buying windows treatments that can’t stand up to daily use and don’t fit your windows precisely or lend your rooms the look you want, it’s important to know how much you should expect to pay for good coverings.
According to HomeAdvisor, the national average for new window treatments ranges from $100 to $800. Of course, it largely depends on the specific kind of treatments you want, as well as the materials, design, and customizations. Here’s a quick breakdown that you can use as a handy guide:
- Curtains and drapes – Costs can vary dramatically based on materials and styles, with basic panels costing under $20 and specialized silk costing $1,000 or more.
- Blinds and shades – You can get aluminum blinds and roller shades, which is the simplest type of shade, for affordable prices. Keep in mind, however, that the lower the price, the less durable the covering may be.
- Custom blinds and shades – Higher-end blinds and shades will cost decidedly more than basic options, but they offer more versatility, with options made of bamboo, burlap, and different fabrics, and motorization options that allow you to operate your coverings remotely.
