Rules you don't want to break when choosing window treatments
Apr 15 2011
Window blinds and shades are some of the most cost-effective updates you can add to your home, but there are some guidelines you should keep in mind. Interior design expert Sue Rainville recently interviewed with the Caledon Citizen to help homeowners choose the perfect window treatments for their home.
Taking proper measurements and keeping wall color in mind is essential when decorating your space.
Taking the proper measurements for your windows should be your first concern. You will want your new blinds or shades to form a tight seal with your window to help control air leakage. Additionally, if you are using draperies, make sure that your window coverings sit one inch above the floor for a streamlined appearance. Then, color and the room's décor should be your next step.
"If you coordinate the window fashions with the wall color it will help visually expand the room because low contrasts keep the eye moving around the room," Rainville told the news source.
Wood blinds could be the perfect window coverings for your home that offer timeless appeal and incredible durability. They will instantly add warmth and texture to your living space and will complement a neutral color scheme with ease.
