Adding custom window treatments to your home can add your own personal flair and help set the tone of your home’s entire interior. There are tons of options out there, from valances to curtains, from drapes to blinds, and Half Price Drapes offers you many choices.
There are plenty of reasons to invest in custom window treatments, outside of adding your own style, of course. They also reduce heat loss in cold months and prevent heat gain in the summer – which can reduce your utility bills.
Your windows can be your room’s focal point so be sure you’re choosing window treatments that work specifically in your space. Often, when a person walks into a room the first thing they’ll notice will be the window coverings. For a modern room, don’t overdo it with swags and old-fashioned treatments but do stick with open windows and plenty of light streaming in.
Most window treatments work both to make your windows look fantastic and to control the sun. There are lined and unlined custom window treatments and today’s styles tend more toward simple, conservative looks rather than heavy, wall to wall or ceiling to floor window treatments. However, the point of these custom treatments is that you can choose exactly what you want!
Shades are a great option to block out the sun. They can even keep the glare out – especially in rooms with computer screens or TVs. They easily draw down to give you maximum privacy but they can also draw up to offer homeowners their own private views outdoors.
As far as sizing goes, window treatments in the same room should be hung at the same level but their lengths don’t have to match. Just remember that the eye will want to follow a consistent line along the top of the windows.
Longer curtains are more dramatic and elegant, and they can also make a room look taller. They can make your décor look more dramatic and can add romance to a dining room. Shorter curtains offer a more modern, clean look.
