Getting Window Treatments Right
For many, redecorating their homes serves to lift up their spirits, a calming and relaxing endeavor. When it comes to redecorating, an oft overlooked yet very impactful aspect is window treatment. Going shopping for décor? Here are a few things you need to take into consideration when choosing window treatments.
Start with determining the right type. From roman blinds that give an elegant touch, to eco- friendly shades, the choices out there are massive. Any choice can bring a dramatic twist to the interiors of your home when it comes to window treatments as there is a lot to experiment. Focusing on tiny details is as important as the colors and designs.
You need to choose between noise blocking and light filtering as well as between flowing drapes and cordless blinds. Choosing fabrics and colors that are soothing to the eyes and easy to clean is an important consideration too. In order to save yourself from unexpected surprises in the future, plan it all beforehand.
Checking out the sample is another thing you need to do. The gorgeous set of drapes you saw at a catalogue last week may be something you’ve fallen head over heels for, but that is no guarantee for it going well with the interior of your home. Before the final selection, compare every factor by asking for a sample beforehand.
Going too dark is something you don’t want to do even if you’re tempted by heavy curtains or light blocking drapes. If you want to keep a check on the amount of sunlight that enters your home at different times, going for light filtering blinds and shades might be a better choice. This will save you on energy bills while making your home comfortable.
Finally, you don’t want something that’s either too long or too short. Curtains that end abruptly halfway look a lot less elegant than a long, flowing look. However, it is much more difficult to clean the long ones compared to the other and they also pose safety hazards. Mixing, matching and going for versatile fittings is be a smart idea. Getting professional guidance for that is the best thing you can do.
