A Well-dressed Room is Always in Style
One of the most effective ways to transform a room is to add the “wow” factor of window treatments. Not only do they help to control the light, temperature and the amount of privacy you desire, they also add the aesthetic element that makes the room complete.
Window treatments can add a hit of colour to create drama or subtly disappear into the background
to soften the look of bare windows.
Consult with a designer who specializes in window treatments to ensure the best choice of fabric, design and function. There are so many options including Roman blinds, drapery panels and decorative valances. Depending upon the size of the window, how much of the view to the outside you wish to allow, as well as the direction that the window faces — these are all considerations when choosing the right treatment.
A design expert will also help you to create the look you are trying to achieve by utilizing some
tricks of the trade. Window treatments can be used to make a ceiling look higher, to connect several
individual windows, to unify adjoining rooms and to create different types of atmospheres from
whimsical to elegant.
New homeowners often forget to budget for window treatments. If it’s too much to consider all
at once, work on a room-by-room basis starting with the principal rooms — in the end you’ll be
pleased that you did.
