When you look out your window do you think of the treatments that adorn it? Most likely you do not give them a second thought. Window treatments are not only for décor and aesthetics of a room. They provide security, privacy, protection from the elements, and sometimes make a good hide and go-seek spot for your kids! The windows in your home can benefit from window treatments and depending on your budget and the style of your home, there is one to fit your needs.
While you may fall in love with the dreamiest window treatment in a home decor magazine, think of your own home’s views and sun exposure before choosing window treatments. Much of your home’s heat gain and loss is through the windows. If your home receives heavy sun exposure, have the appropriate treatments to filter out the light. While you may love valances, remember they only adorn the top of your windows, and your home may need sheers, or light fabric shades to assist with keeping out sunlight. Know your home so that you won’t regret your decision later!
Pelmets are in vogue and really change the whole appeal of the curtain and give the room and window a distinctive look. There are various pelmet designs that you can pick as curtain pelmets for window treatments. But if we look at the pelmet designs broadly then it can be categorized into stiff pelmet and pelmet valance. The stiff pelmet is made from the pelmet board on which the fabric is pasted so there is no frills or pleats here. But in case of valance pelmets the fabric has the pleats that flows downwards. Although there are now rollers and blinds but both the styles of pelmets are in and used by many.
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.
