When many people redecorate their house or apartment, the window treatments end up being one of the last items to be considered. Because of this, there is often little or no attention paid to this aspect of interior decorating. By considering and choosing window treatments last, you might make your home fall short of its stunningly decorated potential. Window treatments can add a lot of character to a home and choosing them should be handled with the same care you put into finding attractive cabinets, choosing a great couch, the perfect paint color for your walls, or that brand new kitchen appliance.
In modern apartments, such as lofts and penthouses with large windows, window treatments should be given a particularly large amount of attention at the earliest point possible in the design stage. By finding the right style and color for your window treatments, a room’s size and ambience can be highlighted, and can become more welcoming and comfortable. This can add a whole new perspective to the home.
With curtains, blinds, and drapes, white is often a color used by decorators, as it’s hard to go wrong with white! Remember that there is quite a large number of whites available, though. If you chose to go with white over a color, you still should decide if you prefer a cool or warm tone for your room. This is also true of paint colors. If you are going for adding some color, Venetian blinds are available in a wide range of colors that can add personality to a room and match your style.
If you are trying to relieve an issue that your room has, you can use some handy optical tricks when deciding on the right window treatment. For example, more dense window treatments, such as Venetian blinds, curtains, and vertically striped fabrics can greatly improve the look of a room with a low ceiling.
Spending a little extra time on window treatments during your planning process can really pay off and help you achieve a look you’ll be pleased with in your home.
