Window Treatments. Tuesday , September 04th , 2018 - 14:33:14 PM
Budget. Before you are ready to start hanging curtains, you need to take some time to think about your budget. Window treatments can range from $100 to $200 per window or more, and often these figures apply to simple blinds in today's market. Clearly, you need to be realistic about what you can afford, but once you set your budget and do a little homework you'll be ready to start shopping for treatments. Professional designers recommend that you take some time to price fabrics, blinds, shutters, and ready-made drapes to help you choose a style within your budget.
Also, though, being able to get treatments that meet your lifestyle and décor style needs perfectly means that you'll be happy with your windows for longer. You won't feel the need to change them because you don't like how they look in a few months. Instead, a professional will work with you to come up with the best possible combination of window treatments for you so that they'll last you for years.
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.
Blinds and shades like rolling blinds and roman blinds can be used also. Horizontal blinds give a completely different and warm look to the large windows. Shades like cellular, Roman, pleated and roller shades have their own style statement when used for window treatments for large windows. Roller shades made up of jute or straw mats give an eastern feel to the ambiance. Window tints are also an option for windows in offices.
Country. It seems that country homes get to have the most fun with varied textures and prints. Bold colorful organic designs are great for playful atmospheres, while plaids and checkers can really bring you back home. Ruffles, fringes, and lace can all be used to really dress up a window for a bold classic look. Humble country windows are often light and airy, perfect for a warm summer day. Victorian. Victorian window shades are often made of bold, medium to heavy weight material. Laces, tassels, and other various forms of ornamentation often adorn stately valances and flowing drapes. Scalloped sheer fabrics and sometimes lace are common. The trend seems to be that the focal point is the window treatments, not the windows. Alternatively, another beautiful Victorian look requires scrapping the blinds and instead using mosaic stained windows.
Choosing treatments for your windows is a challenging task. There are wide varieties of options available that make selection not an easy task. Thus, you have to be very careful as to what suits you best. You update an existing window treatment or you remodel it completely, the below tips would aid in selecting a perfect window treatment. Assessing the style of your window is the initial task. Analyze about the window treatments which you are interested to use and also details pertaining to the architecture of the window. Your window treatment should complement the architecture of the windows. Many people make the mistake of remodeling their windows in such a manner that it clashes with the theme and presents an incongruous picture. Avoid this at any cost.
