Window Treatments. Tuesday , September 04th , 2018 - 14:33:51 PM
Once you know what you need, take the time to select several color samples that appeal to you. Look at a variety of magazines or books on window treatments to get a good feel for what styles you like best. If you gravitate towards the unusual and complex fabric window treatments, seek out a credible interior decorator in your area. Ask them if they are willing to help with window treatments alone, as opposed to someone who only works on whole rooms or a whole house. Many interior decorators have software that can help them design a window treatment just for you, and they have the resources to purchase the fabric, have the window treatments custom-made, and professionally installed. It isn't as expensive as it sounds, it takes all the guesswork out of it for you, and if anything goes wrong you have someone who is responsible to fix the problem, which can relieve you of a lot of headaches. And remember, any funds you spend having your home tastefully decorated is an investment not only in the value of your home, but also in yourself. Coming home to a place that reflects your personality and is in harmony with your inner being is infinitely rewarding. If your tastes are simpler or your budget dictates that you go it alone, then at least you will have armed yourself with the knowledge of what you need and like before you're bombarded in the stores with all the choices. This will help you bypass all the things that don't fit your requirements without a second glance and save you considerable time. If you're still uncertain, ask about the stores return policy just to make sure you can take anything back that doesn't look right once you get it home.
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.
Color is also important in the room. You want your window treatment to blend in with the rest of your decor. In tip #2 you decided what type of look you wanted but now you need to decide what color you want in that style. In order to do that you need to decide how much light you want coming through your window. Do you want drapes that allow you to control the light? For example, if you use solid color panels on your windows, you can pull them when you want to block out the sun and you can open them when you want more light. The more you open them, the lighter it looks.
Also, you can either choose to pull the same style throughout the home or to let each room have its own unique style - it's totally up to you. Many people like formal drapes in the dining area and less formal shades in the bedrooms and living area. It's up to you whether you do this or go a more conventional route with the same types of shades in every room. Great value for your money: While getting custom window treatments isn't the cheapest thing you'll ever do, it will actually give you more for your money in the long run. For one thing, you'll simply get higher-quality window treatments made from the best materials. This means they'll resist fading and damage that can cause you to have to buy new treatments in just a few years.
Also, though, being able to get treatments that meet your lifestyle and décor style needs perfectly means that you'll be happy with your windows for longer. You won't feel the need to change them because you don't like how they look in a few months. Instead, a professional will work with you to come up with the best possible combination of window treatments for you so that they'll last you for years.
Country. It seems that country homes get to have the most fun with varied textures and prints. Bold colorful organic designs are great for playful atmospheres, while plaids and checkers can really bring you back home. Ruffles, fringes, and lace can all be used to really dress up a window for a bold classic look. Humble country windows are often light and airy, perfect for a warm summer day. Victorian. Victorian window shades are often made of bold, medium to heavy weight material. Laces, tassels, and other various forms of ornamentation often adorn stately valances and flowing drapes. Scalloped sheer fabrics and sometimes lace are common. The trend seems to be that the focal point is the window treatments, not the windows. Alternatively, another beautiful Victorian look requires scrapping the blinds and instead using mosaic stained windows.
