Window coverings are material used to cover a window to manage sunlight, to provide additional weatherproofing, to ensure privacy or sometimes security, or for purely decorative purposes.

    • Venetian blinds: wood, faux wood, vinyl, aluminum
    • Mini blinds
  • Window shutters, both the more traditional Colonial style and plantation shutters with larger louver sizes
  • Window shades, including:
    • Roman & folding shades
    • Roller shades
    • Cellular shades
  • Solar screen
  • Various types of boarding, nailed or screwed to the window casing, can be used as temporary window covering.
