When homeowners decorate a room, they often neglect to adequately plan for window treatments, but these additions can have an enormous impact on a room, whether by making it more glamorous or energy-efficient, according to The Indianapolis Star.

Industry insider Pat Rebb recommends that, before taking any steps toward the dressing the windows, homeowners should first consider their lifestyle, including children and animals, the news provider reports.

If there is someone who gets cold easily, it may be wise to invest in honeycomb cellular shades, which insulate a home during the winter by keeping cold air outside.

However, an emerging trend in window treatments comes in the form of the interior shutters, which can add sophistication to any room.

"They're the one window covering that actually adds value to your home," Rebb told the news provider. "They're easy to maintain, and they're beautiful. It's more of a permanent addition on your home, versus a window covering that is a temporary treatment you're going to replace in five or six years."

Rebb also recommends keeping window treatments clean. suggests that homeowners use a damp cloth or feather dust to make sure that allergens and debris don't accumulate on window treatments, which can impact their durability and make a room feel stuffy.
