Window Treatments. Friday , September 28th , 2018 - 23:34:22 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.
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.
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.
Soft window treatments include fabric made treatments such as draperies, cornice boards and soft shades (roman shades, balloon shades, Austrian shades, etc.). Although are often quite functional, are meant to be more aesthetically pleasing. Often times the design and functionality are both important elements within a design scheme, and therefore both types of treatments need to be combined to create a completely functional and attractive design. A good decorator will carefully listen to and observe the needs of the client and the space in order to create a treatment that serves its functional purpose while still creating an appropriate design statement. Her job should be to help you navigate through the thousands of design, function and fabric choices in order to find the perfect window treatment for you. That is why it is so important that you choose a decorator that you can trust and that clearly shows an understanding of your design style and needs.
Identify the basic function of the room. If you are looking for window treatments for your window then, these should be able to stand moisture and also easy to wash. If the is for dining room, you might need a more simple or formal window treatment. Size of the window is an important factor to be considered. If the window size is small then, a rod can be installed either below the line of ceiling or just above the trim. Extra panels that are long hang from them. This gives the image of the window being tall. For a large window, tone the scale of the window down by making it look simple. For tall windows, don't use panels that are long. Break these lengthwise by adding a swag or valence different from the remaining part of the design.
First you must decide on the style of the room, contemporary, traditional, country or eclectic. Once you have figured this out, you will be able to decide which direction to go with your windows. If the architecture of your window is interesting or the window faces a wonderful view, you may decide to leave the window uncovered in that part of your home. Color, pattern and texture all combine to make or break your window treatments. If you have a room that is decorated in soft colors you may want something more bright and bold on your windows. A tip is to look at a color wheel when you make your color choices to make sure that you keep your colors complimentary.
