5 Types of Window Coverings Available for Your Manufactured Home

Decorating a new manufactured home is definitely fun, but also a little challenging. When it comes to window coverings, you want a selection that allows you to control how much light is getting inside, but you also want something aesthetically pleasing.

In general, there are five options for homeowners to choose from when shopping. Here are the popular selections and what benefits they offer.


Window shades consist of a single piece of fabric, which can be pulled up or down at your discretion. They can be used with other window coverings, such as curtains. Shades can be opaque or sheer, which allows minimal sunlight to enter the home even when the shade is closed.


Drapes are a good selection for the bedroom, as they maintain privacy and block out light. They’re made from two long pieces of fabric that hang from a rod at the top of the window. They can be made from a wide range of materials and come in many different colors.


Blinds are a common choice in homes thanks to their practical benefits. These coverings feature individual horizontal slats that can be opened or closed to allow the perfect amount of light into a room. There are also vertical blinds, which work well with larger windows or sliding glass doors. 


Curtains are similar to drapes, only they’re often made out of sheerer fabrics. They come in a wide range of sizes and designs to accommodate many rooms in your home. Curtains are often paired with other coverings for function and aesthetic appeal.

Indoor Shutters

Shutters are most often associated with exterior window coverings, but they can also be used inside the home. Similar to blinds, shutters can be easily opened or closed to control how much sunlight is coming in. Shutters are also visually pleasing and available in many styles and materials to suit your design needs.
