What to Look For in a Window Treatment
Updated: May 18, 2022
Choosing the perfect window treatment can be overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be. Consider these three points to help in picking the perfect look for your home.
Define the look and function you want to achieve
First ask yourself. What function does this room serve? A window treatment can truly define the use of a space by adding or subtracting from its mood, lighting, temperature and atmosphere. Also, consider the style in which the room reflects. Is it modern or contemporary, classic or eclectic? There are so many styles, materials and colors to consider when selecting a window covering. Narrowing the field definitely helps cut the confusion.
Note the scope and scale of the room
The dimensions of a room can factor into the height and width of a window treatment. You want your shades, blinds and draperies to make a statement, but not overwhelm a space. In addition, if a window is a focal point, extending the treatment can make it look bigger and draw more attention.
Hang the window treatment correctly
Installing a window treatment can be tricky. If mismeasured or hung incorrectly, it can sabotage the look and functionality you are trying to achieve. Avoid the hassle, seek out a professional to measure the treatment and install according to the manufacturer’s directions and the designers trained eye. It will save you money and frustration in the long run.
