The windows in your home are your connection to the outside world, and how you choose to dress them speaks volumes about your interior design style. Leaving them uncovered is a sleek, modern look for those who live in wooded or isolated areas. If curtains are too fussy for your minimalist furnishings and blinds are too blah for your modern taste, plenty of alternatives are available.
If you have no idea about what window treatments might cost then most stores should be more than willing to quote off your plans or measurements you provide them. You can ask them to quote based on a middle of the range price point. This will give you a great indication of what you can expect when you finally decide on the specific curtain, blind, shutter or other window treatment.
Here are some modern window treatment ideas to protect your privacy while showing off your style. Window finishes. Frosted glass, window films and glass alternatives let in light while protecting artwork, wood and other household items from fading because of sun exposure. Screens. Laser-cut metal and folding screens make a bold architectural statement. Window shades have experienced a rebirth, thanks to new fabrics that filter UV light. Solid-panel shutters or those with adjustable louvers can be painted to match or complement a room’s color scheme. Artwork, maps and posters and signs in the right size and shape can multitask in any room. Plant an herb garden for your kitchen window and have fresh herbs at the ready for all your meals. Outside, window boxes can be filled with taller flowering plants that provide color and screening qualities both inside and outside.
Even if its something like a Victorian style that you fancy because they are long and flowing, it can be done. Or perhaps you would prefer something with a more antiquated look or perhaps even modern, whatever it is the choice is yours. You can even have your curtains or drapes made in flame retardant material if you are afraid of fire danger. There is the factor of cost though for most people. This is all going to depend entirely on the type of material that you select and how much of it is going to be needed to cover the windows. Although with the market the way it is today, you could find a lot of really competitive prices which could make it fit right into your budget.
