Some Window Treatment Goals
You have so many choices today when it comes to window coverings, from draperies to shutters and everything else in between. It sounds simple, but selecting the wrong window covering can be a costly mistake. There are so many things to take into consideration. But before you start your search you should determine your goals. For example, do you want great view-through? Are you looking for protection from harmful UV rays? Are you needing better control of light or privacy? Do you need a treatment that will provide you with increased energy efficiency? Answering those questions will help you understand the type of treatment that will work best for your needs.
Consider How You Want to Control Light
Two simplified terms talk about how to control light through a treatment: by tilting or by lifting. Blinds and shutters tilt; shades lift. However shades do give you the option for top-down/bottom-up operation, which lets you adjust light from the top or from the bottom or both.
Think About How the Treatment Can Impact the Room
Do you want the product to be functional or just a fashion statement? Do you need to have total blackout (as in for a bedroom or media room)? Do you already have serviceable window treatments? Custom draperies and top treatments allow you bring your own personal style to a room. Available in thousands of fabrics, colors, textures, and opacities, draperies bring your decorating style to life. They can be used along or combined with blinds or shades. Also, a valance or cornice would add interest to your room. Think about changing them out for winter and summer to keep your room looking fresh all year long.
