A recent survey done by an Australian window treatment manufacturer found that more than 40 percent of respondents admitted to using a sheet or a towel to cover a window for an extended period of time. A switch to proper window treatments will improve your home's insulation and instantly add style to your home, according to Brimbank Leader.

"They frame your view and are an important component of your interior design - whether you're going for a clean, crisp look or a rich, textured finish. They can make a house feel more spacious and can enhance light entering your home," industry insider Brett Thomas, told the news source.

While hanging a beach towel in one's window may seem like the cost-effective solution, in reality you're letting hundreds of dollars in electricity costs go right out the window. With an untold amount of combinations for the modern home, you'd be hard-pressed to find a window treatment that won't fit your décor.

Roller shades are a great option for those who want to increase their insulation. The versatile shades come in many different designs and use an internal track to control air leakage.
