As with many other home decorating options, window treatments can be expensive and trying to balance practical with eye-catching can be difficult – but not impossible. A good place to go for window treatment ideas is the internet, your local library or stop our showroom. Combining different styles of window treatments can make your home unique and even save you money.
Bay Window Treatment
A bay window is a window with three or more sides and extends from the outer wall of your house. It is sad that people tend to place a cover over their bay widows with curtains that hide the beauty of the window. There are few people that know how to treat a bay window and retrain it’s beauty.
If you are fortunate to have a fantastic view from your bay window and privacy or light control is not an issue, you may want to consider leaving the window uncovered. However, if you are concerned with privacy and your bay window has wood frames that are appealing, you will want to consider using inside mounted shutters, shades or blinds. One way to give a free flow effect to your room is to have individual shades or blinds on the windows and then add a valence that is continuous or a simple series of swags.
Designer Window Treatment
When you are working with a designer to dress up your windows, always keep your eyes on maintaining the beauty of the window. A designer can help you select the perfect combination of colors, fabrics, blinds or plantation shutters. Not everyone can afford a designer but you can have a fabulous looking home by doing some research and then letting a local factory, such as AAA Blind and Shutter, assist you.
Kitchen Window Treatment
When possible you will want to ensure that the window treatment in your kitchen blends with the style and color of your kitchen cabinets. You will definitely want to look at window coverings that are easy to clean and stain resistant. Stay away from curtains in the kitchen that can blow and be a potential fire hazard if the window is near the stove. Shutters are a great window treatment option for the kitchen since they can be open and let in the light during the day and closed in the evening. They are easy to clean and maintain.
Some window treatments to consider are bamboo or wood shades, blinds, plantation shutters, and even solar shades. Always keep in mind the ease of cleaning, the amount of light that will be let into the room and your own personal preferences.
