New Year, new window treatments! Creating change and updates in your home can be as simple as investing in new window treatments. There’s no need to do a complete overhaul of each room in your house, the right look on your windows can go a long way to improve the feel and comfort at home. Let’s talk about the best methods and how they enhance your space using just your windows.
The main living areas in your home need to provide the most versatility and aesthetic. Personal spaces can be given more specific needs on an individual basis. Regardless of the room, there’s some rules of thumb to follow. Read on to find out!
Kitchens, dining and family rooms should offer the most aesthetic value and as much ability for natural light as possible. How do we do this? We apply form to function! Dining and family rooms typically will have the largest windows in the house and for this, we want to feature them. Combining styles in these rooms is a great approach, a mix of roman shades and layered drapery can bring the area to life, allowing natural light while still providing the functions for privacy.
Now we look to the kitchen, much of which will have reflective surfaces between countertops and appliances. Solar shades will provide anti-glare, privacy and sleekness. Add a custom valance to each window to really complete the look!
When it comes to bedrooms, roller shades are an adaptable and sophisticated choice. This treatment can accommodate the design of a room by blending in quietly while still looking timeless. Cellular shades are also a good option for bedrooms as they add insulation. If you have north facing windows, these will add an extra layer of heating and cooling with energy efficiency. Both style shades can be found in an array of colors and of course, you can add some nice curtains to take them up a notch.
Last but not least, the bathroom. How do we achieve ultimate privacy when needed without sacrificing the look? Shutters! They’re attractive, durable, allow for good air flow and are easy to keep clean. All the necessary elements to make for the right window treatment in your bathrooms.
The way you dress and treat your windows will make all the difference in the feel of a room. Without much effort, you can breathe new life into a space with a fresh window treatment. Check out Bella Home Interiors window treatments on our website and request a consultation today!
