Window Treatments. Tuesday , September 04th , 2018 - 14:34:00 PM
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.
With so many choices available in today's home decor market, how do you know which window treatments will be right for your home and reflect your style? If you've been shopping the home stores lately with window treatments in mind, you might be a little confused (if you're just starting) or you may have a headache from trying to sort it all out (if you've been at it a while). Yes, the world of window treatments is a huge one, but don't be daunted. It can actually be fun and exciting to select window treatments that make a statement while serving a purpose in your home.
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.
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.
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.
With your budget in mind, you should also be prepared to set your priorities. Unless you can afford to do all the windows in your home at one time, you may have to choose which rooms are most important to you. Dress living room and bedroom windows first and then consider window treatments in the bathroom or kitchen, for example. Ultimately, you want to consider things like privacy when prioritizing, but also take some time to think about which windows treatments are the most expensive as well.
