Many people consider window treatments as finishing touches to the rooms decor, and usually pay little or no attention to this interior detail. However, window treatments should never be neglected, as they play an important part in emphasizing the individual character of the place. Window curtains truly stand out in any well decorated room. They add that extra pinch of style and panache to a house.
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.
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.
In many homes the problem isn’t the sources of light through adjacent windows, rather the ability to let light in effectively. Take a look at your current window treatments. Heavy blinds, thick drapery and layered fabric curtains often keep out much-needed natural light. Consider using lighter-weight fabrics such as cotton or linen fabrics, especially in climates that allow moderate temperatures to filter in. For more extreme climates, opt for materials that are versatile and can be tied back to let in light or close when the sun is glaring or too bright.
