Window Treatments. Tuesday , September 04th , 2018 - 14:31:06 PM
The color of the curtains or drapes is also important. To know what color of curtains to buy you ought to consider the amount of sunlight that part of the room receives. If it receives a lot of sunshine it means you should have a lighter shade of curtains since a darker shade might fade quickly.
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.
However, before you purchase new custom treatments it is a good idea to have a basic understanding of their function and basic design elements so that you may be better suited to navigate through the choices and work more intelligently with a professional to achieve just the look you are after for your home. There are two basic categories of window treatments, hard treatments and soft treatments. Hard treatments are your more functional treatment like shades, shutters and blinds. Many manufacturers are working very hard to find ways to make hard treatments more attractive. For the most part, however,these types of treatments are functional, they are meant to serve a purpose: to provide privacy or to conserve energy or block or allow natural light, etc. They can be aesthetically appropriate on their own in more modern and industrial designs.
When it comes to decorating your windows with fabric, there really are a wide range of attractive options. Single panel or multi-panel curtains and drapes each provide slightly different styles but the same benefits. Single panel curtains can be drawn to one side, whereas multi-panel alternatives generally open in the middle and do a very nice job of framing your window when you choose to let light in. Café curtains are also becoming a popular design choice; these curtains cover only the lower portion of your window and can be paired with valances to create an elegant window treatment.
Style. Once you have a good idea of your budget and what you want, you're ready to consider style. The most important thing to remember is to let your own personal style shine. There are no real rules for choosing the style of window treatments, but professional designers usually like to play on a theme of a room. Colours, patterns, or traditional or modern motifs can be reflected in your window treatments. Start by browsing design magazines and books to get an idea of the kinds of window dressings you like best. Finally, think about the feeling you want a room to convey, and choose window treatments that promote those feelings.
Windows have always had that ability to become a focal point of many home interiors whether directly or indirectly, because of their function to radiate light and create warmth and transparency. It's important not to limit these portals of imagination to something that must be "covered"- curtains and window treatments should allow the window to interact with the room besides simply performing a function. Windows can really define a room if utilized properly, but that may not be your intended result. Effectively using window treatments to tone down the source of distraction and compliment the interior of the room. Again, this is done by creating interactions between room elements even after the sun has gone down.
