Choosing the perfect window treatments for your home décor
Mar 18 2011
Window treatments such as shades, blinds, curtains and draperies are invaluable decorative accents that can instantly provide layers of functional detail to your living space. Whether you'd like these products to work in conjunction with one another is your prerogative, but keep some of these things in mind when choosing window coverings, according to Gazettes.com.
Choosing the perfect window treatments will instantly improve the aesthetic of your home.
First and foremost, the architecture of your home will greatly factor into your decision. For example, a modern structure will be best served by minimalist designs such as wood blinds and aluminum mini blinds. On the other hand, a traditional colonial home or rustic home could be enhanced with the addition of flowing draperies and curtains.
Most importantly, taking the proper measurements for your windows is an absolute necessity when ordering your window blinds or shades. A good rule of thumb for fabric shades is to place them high enough above the window such that the view is unobstructed when completely raised. And, when they are closed they should rest right about the window sill.
You can provide a timeless look and a natural accent to your home with bamboo woven wood shades. These products can instantly add warmth to your living spaces.
