Window treatments are how we decorate and take care of our windows. Window coverings (also known as curtains or wraps) have been around for a long period of time. In many apartments and condos, the most popular window treatments are blinds.
When choosing the type of blinds to put in your house's window, consider the type of material depending on the amount of light you want to filter into your room. Lightweight curtains will always allow a fair amount of light to come into your home, while the darker shades prevent light from penetrating through the house.
When interior designers decorate a home,they not only consider the furniture and paint, but also think about other factors. One of the quickest and cheapest ways to improve the look of your home is through updating the window treatments. Interior designers routinely provide their clients with tips about curtains as a means of improving the look of their home.
If you have a room - like a nursery - where you don't want any light coming through the window, you can use thermal curtains to block out the light. Initially, thermal drapes were made for insulation and keeping your room cool or warm depending on the season. But any parent desperate for their child to sleep can tell you that thermal curtains do a great job blocking out the light as well.
For those who like a simple look, they should consider using beaded curtains. In the 1960s and 1970s,beaded curtains were used for partitioning rooms. Thee days, however, beaded curtains provide a classic look in any room, apartment, or dorm. If you do go with beaded curtains, make sure you keep small children and animals away from them since they can easily eat the beads.
For those who decide to go natural with their curtain designs, there are many types of roman blinds made from bamboo or rattan. Some of the window treatments are eco-friendly and others are not.It is always good to ask the manufacture of the products what they mean by natural since the harvesting and the manufacturing process were not positive.
