Window Treatments. Friday , September 28th , 2018 - 23:34:47 PM
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.
Does your home have big windows? Is it making it a little stressful maintaining them? Not to worry there are a variety of options available for large window treatments with great design and great approach. Is there any difference or similarity between doors and windows? They both open us to the morning and night, they help introduce us to a new life every day. Then why do windows deserve more of an exceptional and unusual treatment then doors? Is it because it does not require permission like a door, windows do not stop anyone and who does not wish to peep into it? Windows are a welcoming glimpse into our home and therefore they need a little extra care and exceptional treatments to always have that welcoming smile fresh.
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.
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.
Let's begin with the basic question, "what do you want to do?" Sounds easy enough. Do you want to block sunlight altogether? Do you have a window that just gets morning sunlight, which is softer than afternoon light and therefore needs just a little bit of control? Or do you have windows that get a maximum amount of sunlight throughout the day and therefore need the most light control options available? Another function of window treatments is privacy. If your windows are on the first floor and at a level where anyone outside could peer in, you might like to have the option to block their view at times. Other windows are at a height where no one could look inside and therefore you might not have any privacy considerations at all. Perhaps you have a window (or windows) where there is no need for light control or privacy. Should you do anything at all there? You will also want to consider the energy-efficiency of window treatments, such as those that will block the heat from the sun, or allow more sunlight in to warm up a chilly room.
You can include more than a single pattern in your window dressings. This is particularly important in a room that does not have a pattern of its own. You can combine window treatments such as wood blinds covered with tie back panels and topped with a valance to create depth. You must also think about texture when designing your window coverings. For instance you may have a room that is predominately filled with wood pieces rather than upholstered furniture; in such a room you may want to install soft luxurious curtains. If you are working with rooms that are mostly drywall and carpeting consider the natural tones of wood to warm up the rooms.
