Window Treatments. Friday , September 28th , 2018 - 23:32:57 PM
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.
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.
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.
Every room requires different window coverings. The living room or the lounge windows must be both decorative and stimulating. Apart from the decorative curtains and valances, your windows can undergo a complete makeover by adding a huge ornate glass or a crystal shelf to the window. This would replace the simple and drab look with exquisiteness. The window treatment ideas and styles like the awnings, bay, casement, sliders, grille panels and stained glass can be used for remodeling your windows. Window treatments can be carried out from the outer side of the windows too. The box bay windows commonly used in kitchens have a protruding shelf which can be used to keep potted plants for decorative purpose. If you are a plant lover, then climbers are a wonderful way to decorate your windows from the outside. This is suitable for the small windows which are used less frequently. Window treatment ideas that are based on the country themes can be quite exciting. You can choose a theme like Arabic, French or Italian and decide on the window architectures depending upon the chosen theme. These architectures are quite different from each other and have a range of designs for window treatment ideas which you can adopt for your windows.
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.
What better way to accent a room's décor than by applying beautiful window dressings. Whether you're trying to achieve a fun, elegant, casual or romantic feel, window coverings can instantly transform the look and feel of a space. Buying decorative items for your home so that you have a warm, comfortable and inviting environment to relax and enjoy is extremely possible if you just keep these tips in mind the next time you buy a new home or are considering replacing your window treatments.
