Wood cornices are one of the most classic window treatment ideas, but they are often overlooked as an option in contemporary homes because of their traditional nature. Used alone, however, cornices can create a sleek, modern look. Though they can be paired with curtains, stained or painted, wood boxes are perfect for the kitchen and bath, where fabric can succumb to water damage. These are best built by a skilled carpenter for a custom fit, so they can be expensive if you aren’t handy. Cornices hide curtain hardware and blend well with luxurious detailing, like crown molding, to give your home a gracious, regal look.
When you look out your window do you think of the treatments that adorn it? Most likely you do not give them a second thought. Window treatments are not only for décor and aesthetics of a room. They provide security, privacy, protection from the elements, and sometimes make a good hide and go-seek spot for your kids! The windows in your home can benefit from window treatments and depending on your budget and the style of your home, there is one to fit your needs.
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.
After months of closing your window treatments to keep the cold winter out, it’s now time to transition to beautiful spring inspired window treatments to let in the sun and springtime views. For some homes, winter meant heavy fabrics and textiles on the windows, while spring should signal a time for lighter colors and lighter weight fabrics. From sheers to textiles that enable you to open the windows, rather than cover them are ideal. If you’re trying to brighten your interiors, here are tips to bring spring window treatments into your home.
