Window Treatments. Tuesday , September 04th , 2018 - 14:38:33 PM
With so many choices available in today's home decor market, how do you know which window treatments will be right for your home and reflect your style? If you've been shopping the home stores lately with window treatments in mind, you might be a little confused (if you're just starting) or you may have a headache from trying to sort it all out (if you've been at it a while). Yes, the world of window treatments is a huge one, but don't be daunted. It can actually be fun and exciting to select window treatments that make a statement while serving a purpose in your home.
Large windows are an attractive and sought after feature in new homes. Allowing for ample natural light and unobstructed views of picturesque exteriors, they create brightness and space in any room. As large windows become an increasingly popular architectural feature in modern homes, window treatments for large windows have become increasingly creative. From fabric window treatments and drapes or curtains to window blinds and shades, there are a wide range of stylish options for decorating your large windows.
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.
There are many patterns, kits and other options for do-it-yourself window coverings so you can do the treatments yourself. When looking for window treatment ideas, do not forget to look at what is on eBay and YouTube. These two sites are great resources and will help spark ideas. You might decide instead to go with custom window coverings. The benefit of custom window coverings is that they are fitted to the window and hug all the right curves and fit all the right places. Custom window treatments are no more a luxury than your flooring or carpeting. Everyone deserves window treatments that perform and fit well. You may even save money in the long run with custom coverings because of a reduction in energy costs.
If you are having trouble deciding the color of your window treatments, consider making them the same color as the area rugs in your room. There are so many different solid color rugs to choose from. You may have small area rugs in front of particular areas in the room or you may have one large rug in the middle of the floor. Pull the color that is least seen in that rug and choose for your windows. Patterns on window treatments serve more than one purpose. They offer window coverage and they also offer design and style. If you have too many different patterns in your room, it may become uncomfortable or distracting. If you have too much of one pattern, you may have a busy look which makes it hard to relax in.
Color is also important in the room. You want your window treatment to blend in with the rest of your decor. In tip #2 you decided what type of look you wanted but now you need to decide what color you want in that style. In order to do that you need to decide how much light you want coming through your window. Do you want drapes that allow you to control the light? For example, if you use solid color panels on your windows, you can pull them when you want to block out the sun and you can open them when you want more light. The more you open them, the lighter it looks.
