Jeannie Richmond is an interior designer that has seen homes transformed with the clever addition of window treatments and shades. She believes this is one of the easiest ways for homeowners to create a warm and inviting atmosphere and it can save them money on utility bills and furniture from sun damage as well, according to The Register-Herald.

"Blinds and draperies aren't just for aesthetics, but they are very functional," Richmond told the news source. "Sun exposure can harm furniture and fabrics. Even wood floors can fade and experience sun damage."

With the myriad of fabrics, materials and styles, shopping for window treatments can be a bit overwhelming. Neutral colored shades may not provide an aesthetic punch, but they will not clash with other decorative accents allowing your furniture and other items to be the focal point of your space.

Energy-efficient varieties such as honeycomb cellular shades are terrific options that will reduce the size of your utility bills by controlling air leakage.

Roman shades are a highly versatile home decorating option that come in many colors and styles. Their fabric construction will offer a warm addition to your home's interior design.
