When window treatments matter

Home Improvement
There are a multitude of options for enhancing the look of the windows in your house. There are different reasons why people opt to get window treatments. They are used for their cosmetic value, shade the room from light and provide privacy. Take a look at the window treatments that can suit different areas of your home and learn how to pick them. These are generally readymade though some people end up constructing them at home. There are several factors that have to be taken into consideration while choosing these treatments. Let’s take a look at them as it will help you in determining what will be best suited for your home.

Budget Decide what the range of your budget is. This will be largely dependent on the number of windows that have to be covered. Measure all the windows carefully. The width, height and length should be taken into account. If you wish the coverings to each floor level, take the measurement accordingly. Similarly, factor in some additional width for extra cover on either side of the windows. Remember that these are only the preliminary measurements. You will have to take more precise and extensive measurements later to figure out what the exact cost will be.

Color my fancy Choose the color palette that you think will match the rooms that they have to be used in. You can either match the color of the paint that covers the walls or opt for complementary or contrasting colors. Pick neutral colors to suit your palette and décor. As far as possible, try to match the treatment fabric with the ones on chairs and sofa’s. The wall can be matched to the window coverings. Decide whether you prefer a multi-colored effect or a monochromatic one. Play with different textures and colors within a single treatment.

Material Determine the kind of material you want the window treatments to be made up of. Opt for composite or wood shutters for privacy and good light control. Choose curtains or fabric drapes to add a soft and cozy look to the room. Consider using vertical blinds made of fabric or plastic. If you prefer the natural look, opt for wooden ones. These are ideal for covering windows with sliding glass or even a patio door. In a bedroom, roller shades can afford you the privacy and shading you need. In areas such as a dinette or a kitchen, opt for a more casual-look. These can be matched to the color of the kitchen cabinets.

The considerations Designing any part of the home is not an isolated activity. When you go to buy something new, consider what you already have and buy material or a product that will complement the existing one. For instance, kitchen cabinets and furniture in and around the living and bedroom areas and are more permanent fixtures. Fabric, on the other hand can be changed easily for a new look. Make an effort to create a look that does not jar the senses. Let the treatments flow into the look of the entire house. Since they frame the windows the space they cover is essentially a small one but what you choose can alter the entire look of the room.

Resource box:

Linly Designs are known for the variety of home accessories they offer. Window Treatments are a great way of framing your view of the outdoors. Matching them with the Kitchen cabinets adds a homely touch to the room.
