When they’re decorating their homes, many people are eager to pick furniture, light fixtures and new flooring. Unfortunately, selecting window treatments usually doesn’t get people nearly as excited. If you think about it for a moment, the treatment you pick for a given window has the power to greatly influence the look and feel of the room where it’s located. Of course, it can also impact your view of the outdoors and the impression passers-by have when they view your home from the outside.
Whether you want to add a dramatic touch to a room or improve the look of your home overall, you can do so with custom drapes. When you choose Proctor Drapery, you’ll have a wide variety of different drape types to choose from, making our drapes the right choice no matter what shape a room is.
In the Bedroom
If you’re trying to find a window treatment that will work well in a bedroom, you have to take certain things into consideration. Your privacy and how much light you want to filter through your windows are two of the most important factors you need to think about. In general, it’s wise to layer two kinds of drapes in a bedroom. This is a particularly smart move if you work nights and sleep during the day or you enjoy sleeping in on the weekends.
In the Bathroom
While privacy is a concern when you’re choosing window treatments for a bathroom, it’s not the only thing that should drive your decision. You also have to find a window treatment that’s resistant to mildew and that can stand up to the humidity it’ll be exposed to on a regular basis.
What’s mildew resistant and able to withstand humidity? Custom drapes made by Proctor Drapery, of course.
In the Kitchen
In the kitchen, it’s often a good idea to have drapes that are shorter than the window they’re covering. This is an especially good idea for windows that are above or near areas where you’ll prepare or cook food on a range. Having custom drapes that don’t run the full length of the windows in those areas will prevent them from getting dirty as you prep and cook meals.
In the Living Room
A living room is a space that homeowners are likely to update more often than just about any other room. For this reason, it’s vital for you to think long-term when you’re picking drapes for your living room. Instead of matching your current furniture, select drapes that are neutral enough to go with multiple colors and room configurations so you won’t have to buy new window treatments every time you redecorate or swap out furnishings in your living room.
In the Office
If you work from home, picking the appropriate window treatment for your office is crucial. The wrong kind of drapery may allow the sunlight to creep in, which can bounce off your computer screen and impair your ability to work. If your drapery is too heavy and doesn’t allow any sunlight in, it may cause you to become lethargic during hours you should be at your peak. Style and function should be your top priorities when selecting drapes for your home office.
