The truth is that there is no one, “right” window treatment for your home. Most often, your home requires a series of different window treatments — think shades, blinds, and draperies. The better question would be: Which window treatment suits certain environments best? While you are the only one who can ultimately decide what complements your interior aesthetics and functionality needs, we have comprised a short list of guidelines, designed to guide you through the window treatment selection process at ease.
Tips for Choosing Window Treatments:
Whether you are looking for a one-size-fits-all window treatment solution for your home, or you want to choose window treatments that are specific to each room, we can help.
Certain rooms of the home — think bathrooms and bedrooms — require more privacy than other areas of the home. This doesn’t mean you have to live in a dark cave, though. Rather, you must choose window treatments more selectively, with privacy as a main consideration. Window treatments like cellular shades (with top-down, bottom-up configuration) are a popular choice. Form and function work in unison in this design’s construction, allowing natural light to shine in, while maintaining a decent level of privacy. Roller shades also offer similar results.
Looking for something with a touch of flair? Floor-to-ceiling drapes are great for bedrooms. In addition to adding a touch of color, light-weight drapes still let in the sunlight and provide the privacy every bedroom requires.
Central spaces of the home like the living room, library, or family room do not demand the privacy bedrooms and bathrooms do. In fact, many homeowners prefer to have these spaces open, allowing lots of natural light inside. When it comes to light-emitting window treatments, semi-sheer curtains create a soft glow and add a touch of warmth and softness to these spaces.
Whether you have a nursery or a bedroom, where minimal light is needed for optimal sleep, there are a number of window treatments that can satisfy these needs. Both “blackout curtains,” room-darkening shades, and shutters are excellent sleep solutions. The great news? Shutters can be painted to match existing interior design elements.
