Be adventurous with your window treatments
Apr 4 2011
Window treatments are one of the most cost-effective options available when redesigning a home. Whether you choose simple draperies, blinds or shades, there are countless ways to dress up your windows to improve their appearance, energy-efficiency and ease of use, according to The Times of India.
No matter what window treatment you choose, you will instantly improve the aesthetics of your living space.
The seasons will factor into your window decisions and you will also have to choose whether you would like draperies and window blinds or shades in conjunction with one another. Experts suggest opting for a window treatment that is versatile for every season, such as soft sheer shades or aluminum mini blinds that can work with many draperies.
If you'd like to skip the draperies and give your windows a bit more texture, wooden blinds and bamboo woven shades will add a natural aesthetic. These treatments are perfect stand-alone options for the summer, but can still look magnificent with some winter draperies to increase your energy efficiency.
In redesigning your home, energy efficiency is essential to cutting costs, so consider some honeycomb cellular shades. The unique double cell design will help to control air leakage and reduce glare. Available in light-filtering or blackout varieties, these products will help reduce your utility bills in any season.
