In general, the homes we design are done so with no window coverings in the main rooms of the home. We believe the outside environment should be brought inside and that God provides the art, en plein air art, if I may.
But for those rooms which need window coverings, you have so many choices when it comes to window treatments for your home! Rather than letting that overwhelm or confuse you, there are simple and effective ways to narrow down your choices and add much to your home’s décor and functionality through window treatments. Here are some considerations to keep in mind when you’re deciding on window treatments.
Style of Home
Think about the style of your home when thinking about what window treatments would be best for your home. For example, if your home is modern and sleek, you might choose something different than the window treatments in a home that’s traditional and country style. You may want window coverings that are automated and motorized. For your best and most satisfying results, work with architects who can help to streamline this process and narrow down your options.
Color of Décor
The color you typically use in your décor, your color scheme, will likely help to steer you toward the type of window treatments that are suited to your home. For example, you might choose a different window treatment if you want bold patterns than if you are using light, subtle and solid colors.
What window treatments you choose to use will vary based on functionality, such as if you need window treatments to block out light, provide privacy and just add a special design accent to the room.
You likely have a budget for your decorating and design, including window treatments. First, consider what budget you have to work within when deciding what window treatments would be possibilities for you. There are a surprising number of choices in a pretty wide price range.
With these tips in mind, you’ll likely be more certain about the best window treatments for you. And if you need further assistance with design, call us at TAB Associates, Inc. today to learn how we can design the home of your dreams!
