Longest Lasting Window Treatments

Not all window treatments are created equal. Some are made to last for years, while your average department store blinds and shades quickly fade with time. If you want your home décor to be timeless and durable without having to replace your window treatments every few years, here is our list of window treatments that will have you covered for many years to come:

Wood Blinds

Window blinds are the best choice if you're looking for a window treatment that will last for years. One of their best features is how little maintenance is required for wood blinds to maintain their gorgeous color and sleek appearance. We recommend hardwood blinds for rooms needing the warmth and texture of real wood. Faux wood is an ideal alternative for even longer durability with the visual appeal of hardwood.

Metal Blinds

Metal blinds are the right choice for high traffic rooms where durability is key. They can last up to 20 years before needing to be replaced. Wood alternatives like metal blinds stand up to heat and humidity as well, which is why we recommend metal blinds for rooms like kitchens and bathrooms.

Aluminum blinds have an industrial feel that works well in urban spaces with lots of natural light, while copper-shaded metal blinds create a warm glow in rooms with low ceilings or high window sills.


When considering long-lasting window treatments, shutters have been the go-to solution for decades. Commonly known as “plantation shutters,” interior window shutters are a home classic. They add texture and depth to any room and can be customized to suit you. For the traditionalists, real hardwood shutters would be the ideal choice. Though for those looking for durability against heat and moisture, then composite or vinyl shutters may be the way to go.

Cordless Shades

If a sleek, modern look is your style, the cordless shade is a great option. Not only are they easy to clean and maintain, but they are the right choice where pet and child safety is a concern; Pesky cords that get tangled are no longer a worry with cordless shades.

Roman Shades

Roman shades are a popular choice for their drapery-like folds and elegantly tailored fabric. Choose between the flat or full fold and a range of high-quality fabrics. Roman shades are the epitome of luxury, and their beauty is made to last for years to come.
