If you’re in the market for new window treatments, you probably know there are a ton of choices. If you’re feeling overwhelmed, reach out to a representative at Windows, Walls & More here in West Bloomfield. In the meantime, check out the tips below; they should help you narrow down the selection. And remember, the process for shopping for window treatments should be fun. And in the end, you should be able to find the perfect window treatment that not only finish your room beautifully but offer the functionality you need as well.
Choose the Room’s Focal Point
Where do you want your eye to go? If your room lacks accessories, character, and interest, then advancing the window treatment through color and texture will add character to the room. By putting color on the window treatment, it becomes the focal point in the room. If, on the other hand, you have lots of accessories and décor in the room, receding the treatment by using neutral colors and soft textures would be the way to go.
Determine Whether You Need Vertical or Horizontal Treatments
There are many options available in both vertical and horizontal window treatments. Horizontal window coverings work best on windows that are taller than they are wide, while vertical window coverings are most suitable for windows that are wider than they are tall. Skyline® Gliding Panels actually work great in both applications.
Decide How Light Should Be Handled
Light can be diffused or deflected. Diffused light is a soft light with neither the intensity nor the glare of direct light. It is scattered and comes from all directions. It is softer and does not cast harsh shadows. A few products that diffuse light are Duette® Honeycomb Shades, Silhouette® Window Shadings, Luminette® Privacy Sheers, and pleated and roller shades. Deflected light is harsh and is hard on the aging eye. It can be softened by the use of draperies. A few products that deflect light are Provenance® Woven Wood Blinds, shutters, and both vertical and horizontal blinds.
