While you may fall in love with the dreamiest window treatment in a home decor magazine, think of your own home’s views and sun exposure before choosing window treatments. Much of your home’s heat gain and loss is through the windows. If your home receives heavy sun exposure, have the appropriate treatments to filter out the light. While you may love valances, remember they only adorn the top of your windows, and your home may need sheers, or light fabric shades to assist with keeping out sunlight. Know your home so that you won’t regret your decision later!
When you look out your window do you think of the treatments that adorn it? Most likely you do not give them a second thought. Window treatments are not only for décor and aesthetics of a room. They provide security, privacy, protection from the elements, and sometimes make a good hide and go-seek spot for your kids! The windows in your home can benefit from window treatments and depending on your budget and the style of your home, there is one to fit your needs.
If you love the look of clean edges but lack the funds for custom cornices, you can still have a beautiful window without any soft goods at all by painting the window’s mullions, frame and sill instead of dressing it with curtains. Any DIYer with a steady hand and some masking tape can paint a window, and the color possibilities are endless. Try a bold pop of color to highlight the view, but for best resale value, choose a dark brown or black color for a chic look.
If you have no idea about what window treatments might cost then most stores should be more than willing to quote off your plans or measurements you provide them. You can ask them to quote based on a middle of the range price point. This will give you a great indication of what you can expect when you finally decide on the specific curtain, blind, shutter or other window treatment.
