These days, you have more window treatment choices than ever before. How do you know what type of window coverings will work best in your home? Focus on the following factors to help you select the besst window fashions.
Window treatment type
Window treatments come in a very large variety of types and styles. The most popular are shutters, shades, blinds, toppers and draperies. Each of these types serves a specific purpose and creates a particular style. Plantation shutters, for example, have a classic air that can complement décor types from rustic to European. Blinds work well with contemporary and traditional décors. The large variety of available shades can complement any interior trend or style. Custom draperies and toppers – either standing alone or paired with another window covering – can create a unique look all its own.
Color and texture
The color and texture you choose for your window treatment should complement the rest of your décor without locking you into keeping things just as you have them today. Choose a color and texture that can flow nicely with a range of décor elements so you’re free to adjust other pieces of the room without having to change your window coverings.
While window coverings can be the cornerstone of your overall interior décor, they also exist to serve a purpose – to cover your windows! Be careful not to lose sight of what you need your window treatments to do for you. Carefully consider issues such as light and privacy control when selecting your window treatments.
Window treatments aren’t just a purchase, they’re a true investment in your home. When considering your options, look for leading window treatment brands that have a solid warranty and easily available repair centers, such as the Hunter Douglas brand.
Blind & Shade Safety
If you have small children in your home, limit your options to those window coverings that utilize a cordless, safe operation. Many blinds and shades, such as Hunter Douglas blinds and shades, can be customized for maximum safety without sacrificing style.
