Window Treatments. Friday , September 28th , 2018 - 23:33:21 PM
Any option you choose is going to cost a lot of money. Whether it is blinds or shades, curtains or drapes you have to think about robust way to operate it. You can't have the operating mechanism break down every few weeks or months. It needs to take the stress and strain of being operated often. Else, if you have beautiful window treatments for large windows but no way to open or close them.
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.
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.
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.
If your home has a lot of windows and you are trying to dress them all, then that can get a bit expensive. Instead of purchasing cheaper and lesser quality coverings for all your windows, you can choose one or two rooms that you will buy higher quality custom window coverings for and then purchase nice, but lower quality window dressings for the other windows. Once you have created a budget and decided on the type and style of window treatment to purchase, shop around until you find the lowest price. Don't hesitate to get multiple quotes from several home stores and online companies. Don't hesitate to negotiate price if you know you can get it cheaper somewhere else, and if you're considering making a purchase form an online company request free shipping and that they waive any minimum purchase order requirement.
Not every window is square, right? So why should the curtains be made only for a square window? New homes are popular for adding different shaped windows to the home and although it looks great, it may be hard to decorate with. When you consider your window treatment, first decide if you want the wood or frame work to show. Sometimes the wood trim around the window is from an older home or it is something that way custom made and you don't want to cover it up with your window treatment. In this case you may want to look for short window toppers that only go across the top of the window to allow more of the window and trim to show.
