How To Choose Bedroom Window Treatments In Sacramento

When you’re looking for a window covering for your bedroom in Sacramento, light control, energy efficiency, color, installation, and privacy are important criteria to assess. What’s the best window treatment between plantation shutters, sliding barn doors, blinds, and shades? Keep these 5 things in mind when picking bedroom window treatments in Sacramento, CA.


Privacy is the main reason to decide on bedroom window treatments. Shades, drapes, and blinds may provide you with an adequate shield from prying eyes. But their sheer material means silhouettes and shadows are noticeable.

Sliding barn doors and plantation shutters, on the other hand, give you ultimate privacy. The shutter louvers can be adjusted to close entirely. And you can rest assured that there are no gaps where the louvers meet the side of the window since bedroom shutters come with a frame. With sliding barn doors, you can slide the panels closed. You might notice a slight gap on the sides of the window depending on how your sliding barn doors are installed.

Light Control

If you want to sleep in, block out an obnoxious street light, or ignore the full moon, you need a bedroom window treatment that can block light. Blinds are not the best at keeping the room dark. The material they’re made of is usually thin. And you can still see light coming in from the sides.

Some shades might provide you with 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 certain kinds of shades may result in enough room darkening. Sliding barn doors, built from solid wood, may block the light head on. However the gap on the sides of the panels does not seal off the light completely.

The frame for all types of plantation shutters seals off any stray sun rays. And their louvers can lay flat against each other, creating the darkest possible space. Both Polywood® and Ovation® wood shutters are made from louvers that can block light when closed. But reclaimed wood shutters could have holes that let in light. Block the light from the street every day of the week with these bedroom plantation shutters!

Energy Efficiency

It‘s not easy to keep the temperature in the bedroom pleasant through all the seasons for restful sleep with the wrong window treatment. That’s why you’ll want to look for a window treatment for the bedroom with a high energy efficiency rating.

Polywood shutters insulate 70% better than the comparable wood shutters, and 1600% better than aluminum blinds. Polywood minimizes up to 45% of airflow and blocks up to 30° of temperature. No other bedroom window treatment in Sacramento comes close. Want to stay cool in the summer and toasty in the winter? Purchase Polywood plantation shutters for your bedroom.


Bedroom window treatments are available in several styles to complement your furniture. If you want to bring in the warmth of wood, install Ovation wood plantation shutters, reclaimed wood shutters, sliding barn door shutters, wood blinds, or woven wood shades. For a more modern look, metal blinds, cellular shades, or Polywood plantation shutters are your better choice. And these bedroom window treatments can be customized with a selection of stains, patterns, paints, and more. Contact a window treatment expert about the color options available in the Sacramento area.


When you’re purchasing bedroom window treatments, buy with quality in mind. Blinds, shades, and draperies are likely to discolor, break, and lose their integrity within 10 years. Polywood plantation shutters, on the other hand, are engineered to last for 50+ years. They’re treated with UV inhibitors so that the paint color never loses its vibrancy. And our patented wood synthetic means their louvers won’t ever warp.
