The Des Moines Home + Garden Show is a great place to get your home projects started for Spring, but being prepared is the key to having a successful show. When getting ready for home improvent, most people are confused what they need to do before going to their consultation. Purchasing new window coverings is one project that many people are initially under prepared for, as most people aren't aware of what they need to do prior to their consultation. Fortunately, our friends at Great Plains Blind Factory have come up an easy checklist for preparing to purchase new window coverings.

1) What is The Function of The Room?

Different functions require different types of window coverings. You don’t want to work in an office where it’s too dark or sleep in a room that’s too bright. Declaring the primary function can help narrow down which window coverings will meet your needs.


2) Which Direction Does the Room Face?

Different directions mean different amounts of light during different times of the day. Pro tip, if you don’t have a compass, check your phone. Most smart phones have a built-in compass app.


3) What is Outside the Window?
