Having great windows is a major plus in any home–they add character and provide much coveted natural light. Without window treatments, however, the space will look unfinished. Whether you choose blinds, cornices or curtains, windows are a good place to anchor the room’s overall design and inject your own personal style. Before deciding on a treatment, determine what function the window covering needs to serve and the aesthetic you want it to reflect. Is it for a home office? Blinds that block out glare from the sun are a good choice. Looking for an elegant touch to a dining room window? A cornice is a stylish option. Do you need privacy? Opt for an opaque material.
Like the rest of the building or renovation project you need to start with a rough idea about how much money you can set aside for your window treatments budget. Each individual will have a different idea about what they would want to spend. If you can set a limit to start with then you will have less chance of going over that once you start shopping. Then it is a matter of researching and talking to your local window treatment expert to see if you can achieve the look you are after within the budget you have decided upon.
Here are some modern window treatment ideas to protect your privacy while showing off your style. Window finishes. Frosted glass, window films and glass alternatives let in light while protecting artwork, wood and other household items from fading because of sun exposure. Screens. Laser-cut metal and folding screens make a bold architectural statement. Window shades have experienced a rebirth, thanks to new fabrics that filter UV light. Solid-panel shutters or those with adjustable louvers can be painted to match or complement a room’s color scheme. Artwork, maps and posters and signs in the right size and shape can multitask in any room. Plant an herb garden for your kitchen window and have fresh herbs at the ready for all your meals. Outside, window boxes can be filled with taller flowering plants that provide color and screening qualities both inside and outside.
Pelmets are in vogue and really change the whole appeal of the curtain and give the room and window a distinctive look. There are various pelmet designs that you can pick as curtain pelmets for window treatments. But if we look at the pelmet designs broadly then it can be categorized into stiff pelmet and pelmet valance. The stiff pelmet is made from the pelmet board on which the fabric is pasted so there is no frills or pleats here. But in case of valance pelmets the fabric has the pleats that flows downwards. Although there are now rollers and blinds but both the styles of pelmets are in and used by many.
