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.
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.
Having great windows is a major plus in any home–they add character and provide much coveted natural light. Without window treatments, however, the space will look unfinished. Whether you choose blinds, cornices or curtains, windows are a good place to anchor the room’s overall design and inject your own personal style. Before deciding on a treatment, determine what function the window covering needs to serve and the aesthetic you want it to reflect. Is it for a home office? Blinds that block out glare from the sun are a good choice. Looking for an elegant touch to a dining room window? A cornice is a stylish option. Do you need privacy? Opt for an opaque material.
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!
