The Basics of Window Treatments
There are many options when it comes to how you dress your windows. Here are just a few you may want to consider.
There are several types of blinds. Some of the most popular are:
Roman Blinds (Or Shades) – A more upscale window dressing made of folds of fabric. Perfect for bedrooms or living rooms.
Wood or Faux-Wood Blinds – Horizontal slats that pull up and down. Great for privacy and light control. Different widths to choose from to create different looks.
Shutters – Interior shutters that fit inside the window frame. Creates a luxurious look with a southern flair! Perfect for dining rooms or kitchens.
Curtains Vs. Drapes
Drapes are similar to curtains but are typically more formal. They are often lined and come with a string or rod pull for easy opening and closing.
Blackout curtains are a great addition to any bedroom – especially kids rooms when daytime naps are still needed.
