How to Choose Window Coverings for an Apartment Building

Choosing commercial window treatments for apartments does not seem like a stressful choice, but if you choose incorrectly, you may not like the outcome. Window coverings near Milpitas and San Jose can make a big difference when it comes to furnishing your apartment building. Energy bills, ease of maintenance, and how much money you spend should all be important factors in how you choose your window coverings.


Consider the Cost

One of the biggest factors when choosing a window covering should be the cost, especially when you have to install them in several apartments. You want to provide a stable and efficient commercial window treatment for the apartments, but you do not want to break the bank. Look at the middle-grade options available so you can install a trustworthy product without spending too much.

Consider the Clients

You also have to think about the clientele you plan to attract. Do you expect them to be upscale or middle-class; retirees, families, or college students? There are many different window treatments to install based on the clientele you think will rent in your apartment building.

Consider the Maintenance

Maintenance worries might be a combination of thinking about your clientele and the cost of the window coverings. If you have very expensive, and difficult or costly to maintain, window treatments, it is unlikely that your renters will clean them often. That may not be a bad scenario, but you should be willing to pay the cost and time to clean the treatments yourself. On the other hand, if the window treatments are low-maintenance, then neither you nor your renters will have to worry.

Consider the Energy Bill

If you can provide energy-efficient blinds or shades in your apartment, your renters will thank you for the energy savings. Or, if you offer to cover energy costs as part of your renters’ package, you will notice the savings yourself. Either way, look for commercial window treatments that will cut down the sun and heat exposure and save everyone money.
