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.
Function. The way a room is used actually has a direct impact on the kinds of window treatments that are the most suitable. If you have children or you entertain a lot, you will likely want to choose window dressings that are more durable. Similarly, delicate fabrics are not recommended in rooms such as the kitchen or bathroom. Heavier fabrics are ideal for providing privacy or to control light, delicate or intricate fabrics provide beauty, but not always durability, and some fabrics can even enhance noise and cold insulation. Blinds and shutters allow you to adjust light control; blackout shades can be an excellent choice for bedrooms; and more fabric can help to block noise. As you can see, it's important to consider how you will use a room as well as the function of the window treatments.
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.
Large windows can again be decorated and covered with blinds and shades. Blinds are made out of hard materials like bamboo, unlike curtains and drapes made from fabric that is washable and easy to remove. Obviously they come in bamboo, paper and jute as these have to be one of the most popular materials for making blinds and drapes. Blinds can be vertical or horizontal, depending on your taste in size and style. But vertical blinds are generally preferred because they hardly buckle with time, something that gives them superiority in quality and durability.
