Window Treatments. Tuesday , September 04th , 2018 - 14:33:25 PM
You can include more than a single pattern in your window dressings. This is particularly important in a room that does not have a pattern of its own. You can combine window treatments such as wood blinds covered with tie back panels and topped with a valance to create depth. You must also think about texture when designing your window coverings. For instance you may have a room that is predominately filled with wood pieces rather than upholstered furniture; in such a room you may want to install soft luxurious curtains. If you are working with rooms that are mostly drywall and carpeting consider the natural tones of wood to warm up the rooms.
Once you have answered the question of what you need, then you can begin to consider your options. If you need the maximum in light blocking and light control (for instance, in a bedroom where someone needs to sleep during the day), then you might want to consider dual window treatment options on those windows. Total light-blocking blinds are a good option, but you can also combine them with fabric panels to help add to the light-blocking properties. The fabric panels will also give you light control when the blinds are opened, and depending on your color and texture choice you can give a light and airy feel to the room even when the blinds are closed and no sunlight is coming through.
With your budget in mind, you should also be prepared to set your priorities. Unless you can afford to do all the windows in your home at one time, you may have to choose which rooms are most important to you. Dress living room and bedroom windows first and then consider window treatments in the bathroom or kitchen, for example. Ultimately, you want to consider things like privacy when prioritizing, but also take some time to think about which windows treatments are the most expensive as well.
Custom window treatments can be intimidating for many consumers. Many are overwhelmed by the choices in treatments. Others worry that custom window treatments may be cost prohibitive. There are even those individuals who feel that window treatments are only appropriate for traditional design styles. The reality is that yes, there are thousands of style, fabric and design options for custom window treatments. Window treatments can be as diverse and creative as the creative mind can imagine and a good designer can design. And although they can be costly, they should be considered as an investment, something that, if done correctly, you will live with and enjoy for many years to come. I came across an article recently that stated that on average, individuals who purchase store bought window treatments will change them out once per year while individuals who purchase custom treatments will keep their treatments for at least seven years. If you do the math, at about $100 per window for store bought treatments, you have paid more for them over seven years than if you had invested the money to purchase custom treatments.
Before you start shopping for your window treatments, the first thing you should do is to create a budget for yourself. This should actually be the first step before you even start considering the type and style of window treatments you might like. It makes absolutely no sense to look at certain window dressings that are outside of your budget. If you don't create an honest budget, you very well may wind up regretting the amount you spend after you get your credit card statement.
Other window treatment ideas for overly bright rooms are curtains with heavy fabrics and dark colors. Such curtains coupled with the valances complete the whole look of the window treatments. Heavy shutters can also enhance the look of the windows drastically. The various shutter styles suitable for the purpose are raised panel or colonial style. Rolling blinds are available in various printing designs, semi-light filtering and black-out type and these also give a new look to the windows. The rolling shutters can be placed both inside or outside the house and can be decorative due to the use of different colors or materials such as bamboo. Awnings are a common choice for highly lit rooms. The positive point in the case of awnings is that the window treatment ideas which make use of awnings allow breeze to come inside while keeping the sun out.
