Window Treatments. Friday , September 28th , 2018 - 23:30:25 PM
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.
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.
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.
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.
The best window treatment ideas are those which enable the buyer to pick the best possible materials and styles for getting the perfect look for the window. Out of the many popular window treatment ideas, you can decide on the one you want to go for depending upon the type of window that needs working on. If the window is placed in the room where ample amount of light is required, then light colored curtains are suitable. The material of the curtains which would be most desirable in such a case would be cotton, linen, polyester and net. These styles of curtain fabrics allow light to pass through without compromising with the privacy. These types of curtains use up light colors like white and cream. Window treatment ideas like these are best suited for study rooms and kitchens where the interiors are supposed to be bright.
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.
