How to Pick the Best Window Treatments / Window Coverings for your Home or Business

Window Coverings–so many tips, so many designs… Where do you start?

Window treatments really help define the style and mood of a room. When deciding on a window treatment its best to start with the style, then move on to the color and design. Hardware choices add the right finishing touch.

The first thing to think about in choosing a window treatment is to decide how much privacy and light you need and desire. For a room in which minimal privacy is needed, maximize the available natural light and select fabrics that are light or sheer in nature.  Utilize the wall space around the window to keep the most amount of light coming in the room.  For more privacy and a cozy effect, create a soft wall of opaque texture and rich color. However, beware of overdressing windows with yards of fabric, which can make your room look dated.

IS91vxuh6n06650000000000Draperies can be a way to bring pattern into a room.

Draperies consist of panels of fabric; it is how they are attached at the top that determines which category they fall into. By definition, curtains are gathered on a rod or attached to it by tabs, ties or rings. They are generally stationary; if they are opened and closed, it is done by hand.

ISxz19zywpws980000000000-1  Elegant drapes instantly add drama to a room.



100_0459Fabric shades such as honeycomb shades provide privacy and light control.

Shades are a good choice if windows don’t allow a fuller treatment, such as corner windows without much space between them. They’re also a good choice for an uncluttered look, or when you want to use a fabric with a large pattern or motif, because they will help show off the fabric. Naturally-woven blinds and shades give a handmade feel due to their organic texture.

Shades can be mounted inside the window frame or on the wall or molding outside the frame. The general rule is to add two to three inches to the overall width of the shade to allow room for mounting hardware.


Blinds and Shutters

Blinds and shutters have adjustable louvers and vanes that tilt to filter the light, level to reveal the view or shift to completely block the view. Horizontal blinds made of vinyl or metal come in a wide array of finishes and colors; vertical blinds also come in an array of textures and materials and create a more contemporary look. Wood blinds mimic the look of shutters but at a lower cost.

ISpdfatdgs7al30000000000Shutters add architectural interest and style to a window. They’re available in wood and vinyl. Traditional shutters with 1-inch louvers provide privacy but cut down on light and the view. Plantation shutters have wider louvers, 2- and 3-inch sizes, which allow better ventilation and a clearer view.

100_0370     Plantation shutters have wider louvers


All types of window treatments need hardware. They can be as simple as a spring-loaded rod, ideal for a café curtain, to an elaborate top rod that may outshine the window treatment itself. Hardware that will be covered by fabric is generally plain and unobtrusive. Other hardware is more decorative, including styles that include elaborate finials. When choosing the latter, look for styles that blend well with your windows and the rest of the room’s decor.

In stressful times your home becomes your sanctuary, so much so in fact that home improvement has become the great national pastime.

For many families, the kitchen grew into a “great room” several years ago and in its new, enlarged capacity is often filled with children doing homework and guests chatting over the soup pot. Once quiet sanctuaries, living rooms and even libraries are now often full of entertainment and equipment, filling these rooms with often unpleasant news of the outside world.  So for adults seeking peace and privacy, their bedroom is the last retreat. 


Without the privacy and proper light control provided by proper window coverings, even a well-designed bedroom isn’t a pleasant retreat. Window treatments can baffle the most experienced of decorators. Especially for bedrooms, you need to start with the basics: privacy, light control and function.  Consider these suggestions:img-206

Window shadings . combine the best features of sheers, blinds and shades in a single, soft window treatment. Floating “colored” fabric vanes are held in place by sheer fabric front and back facings. The vanes rotate for varying degrees of light diffusion and control, and when closed, privacy with a soft radiance. The vanes can be opened, tilted and shut by a continuous cord. When fully raised, window shadings are concealed within a color-coordinated headrail. A room-darkening option is also available to provide both light control and privacy. For added convenience, a battery powered motorization system allows you to raise and lower the covering and tilt the fabric vanes without leaving your bed.  Best of all, it’s convenient and affordable100_0094

Also ideal for bedrooms are honeycomb shades.  A variety of hardware systems allow the product to suit almost any window or need. These shades have a unique seamless honeycomb design that provides superior energy efficiency because the air is “trapped” in the honeycomb pleats, thus insulating against heat, cold and even sound.  And they’re available in hundreds of color choices in a variety of pleat size and fabrics from sheer to opaque for complete light control and privacy.786_TriLight Prominence LIVING - Partial - Large

Honeycomb shades in a two-fabric combination style offer two fabrics fashioned into one shade with a moving center rail, thus allowing an opaque option to block out all light and a less opaque fabric that diffuses light into the room.  Double honeycomb shades are available for added energy efficiency and color intensity.


Plantation Shutters are  available in many Louvers size , help keep light out and peace and quiet in.   And don’t forget wood blinds.  They add natural warmth and elegance, and when ordered with decorative tapes, they block out additional light and enhance privacy.
