While you may fall in love with the dreamiest window treatment in a home decor magazine, think of your own home’s views and sun exposure before choosing window treatments. Much of your home’s heat gain and loss is through the windows. If your home receives heavy sun exposure, have the appropriate treatments to filter out the light. While you may love valances, remember they only adorn the top of your windows, and your home may need sheers, or light fabric shades to assist with keeping out sunlight. Know your home so that you won’t regret your decision later!
While many people enjoy fabric, there is a large population who prefers to remove it and enjoy treatment-less windows, or even shutters or blinds. Especially if you have gorgeous vistas to look it, white plantation shutters, vertical or even light wood blinds make for uninterrupted views. Many varieties are available for unique decorative styles, from modern and clean lined treatments to traditional treatments with ornate cornice headers to make your windows look clean and not bare. If you opt for no fabric, ensure that your windows are clean and inviting for guest to enjoy the views.
If you have no idea about what window treatments might cost then most stores should be more than willing to quote off your plans or measurements you provide them. You can ask them to quote based on a middle of the range price point. This will give you a great indication of what you can expect when you finally decide on the specific curtain, blind, shutter or other window treatment.
Even if its something like a Victorian style that you fancy because they are long and flowing, it can be done. Or perhaps you would prefer something with a more antiquated look or perhaps even modern, whatever it is the choice is yours. You can even have your curtains or drapes made in flame retardant material if you are afraid of fire danger. There is the factor of cost though for most people. This is all going to depend entirely on the type of material that you select and how much of it is going to be needed to cover the windows. Although with the market the way it is today, you could find a lot of really competitive prices which could make it fit right into your budget.
