Window Treatments. Friday , September 28th , 2018 - 23:33:34 PM
Custom window treatments can be intimidating for many consumers. Many are overwhelmed by the choices in treatments. Others worry that custom window treatments may be cost prohibitive. There are even those individuals who feel that window treatments are only appropriate for traditional design styles. The reality is that yes, there are thousands of style, fabric and design options for custom window treatments. Window treatments can be as diverse and creative as the creative mind can imagine and a good designer can design. And although they can be costly, they should be considered as an investment, something that, if done correctly, you will live with and enjoy for many years to come. I came across an article recently that stated that on average, individuals who purchase store bought window treatments will change them out once per year while individuals who purchase custom treatments will keep their treatments for at least seven years. If you do the math, at about $100 per window for store bought treatments, you have paid more for them over seven years than if you had invested the money to purchase custom treatments.
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.
The most popular treatments are fabric window treatments. Curtains, sheers and drapes are the most commonly used ones. The material can either be heavy or light, depending on the needs of the home or room you are furnishing. When privacy is important heavy materials are preferred as it is not possible to see through them. Lighter materials can be for when you do not want to retain moisture in a high moisture room like a bathroom.
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.
A put-together style: No matter what your decoration style or the style of your home, custom window treatments can be made to tie your style together. Do you prefer smooth, sleek roller shades or more conventional draperies? Either way, we can get you the colors, textures, and styles to suit your decorations perfectly. This can act like the glue that holds your decorative style together - making everything else look better and more cohesive.
If you need minimal light control and privacy is not an issue, consider these windows your opportunity to reflect your personal style and create a look that is uniquely yours without having any limitations other than the size and shape of the windows. Here you can go all out, selecting fabric window treatments that make a dramatic statement or ones that very subtly pull all the elements of your room together to give it a finished look. Look around the room. Select a color or colors that may need to be emphasized. Is there a touch of red in your floor treatment or in the sofa throw pillows that you'd like to bring out? Or perhaps your wall color is soft and muted, and you'd like to give the room a punch of contrasting colors here.
