Windows generally add to the decor of a home, the style and benefits makes it worth a treatment. Usually the purpose is to let the air and light be a part of the family, it protects from hot summers, cold winter and also acts a guard. So keep all of these benefits going for a life time your large windows would need treatment. Large window treatments would add to the classy and elegant look of the home. Let us explore some great ideas and thoughts on treatments; they are easy and inexpensive.
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.
Large windows can again be decorated and covered with blinds and shades. Blinds are made out of hard materials like bamboo, unlike curtains and drapes made from fabric that is washable and easy to remove. Obviously they come in bamboo, paper and jute as these have to be one of the most popular materials for making blinds and drapes. Blinds can be vertical or horizontal, depending on your taste in size and style. But vertical blinds are generally preferred because they hardly buckle with time, something that gives them superiority in quality and durability.
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.
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.
For large window treatments, curtains can also prove to be worth having to control the light, and protect from general heat or cold. Different styles like single panel and dual panel both are good, but widely accepted are the dual curtains which hang at each side of the window. Custom made curtains can be useful for really odd size windows while drapes could be used for windows having radiators under the sills. Cafe curtains which cover half of the window could be used along with valances for large window treatments. Even cotton drapes can be options for large windows for children rooms and the kitchen as they are easy to maintain. Greener options are also now widely accepted like window blinds prepared with bamboo, paper or jute. Horizontal blinds, vertical blinds, panel tracks all could be used for large window treatments. They all have their unique benefits for large windows.
