Window Treatments and Coverings

You will definitely want to put emphasis on your window coverings and window treatments whether you are renovating an existing house or building a new home.  This is an excellent way to define the look of your home as much as any other interior or exterior component.  

When you are considering window treatments, you may decide to go with draperies.  An interior design company can help you make the most out of it by recommending colors, hues, materials and lengths that not only complement the interior, but are functional as well.  Window coverings are not just meant to look great, but they can also provide energy efficiency depending on your geographical location.  The right style can keep out the heat in the summertime, which will help you save on your energy bill.  While you are running your heat in the winter they will prevent the cold from coming in, so they are effective in keeping the temperature at the desired level, regardless of the season.

Window treatments could also mean the installation of blinds.  These can be extremely useful because they can be left open when desired and closed when you need privacy.  There are many that you can opt to choose from including horizontal blinds and vertical blinds.  You can also choose the material from which they are made.  Some are a plastic resin, while other high end blinds may be made of wood.  You can also decide to have your blinds custom made.  Your interior design company can help you make the choice that suits both your home and your needs.  

Window coverings also include choices such as shutters.  The right shutter choice outside can accent your home and showcase the exterior.  These also come in a variety of colors, materials and sizes and you are also able to special order these as well.  Your interior designer or renovation company will have many for you to choose from, and they will also be able to recommend which materials might have the best durability based on the area where you live and the weather patterns of that region.  In some areas, shutters are actually necessary because of the seasonal storms, while in others these are merely additions for aesthetic purposes.  No matter whether its functionality or style, these are wonderful options for your home.

Your professional design company will be able to help you make the best decisions when considering what window treatments might work best for each of the rooms in your home.  While it is possible that you could decide to choose a theme throughout the house and stick with window coverings that are all the same, you may want to individualize each room with different styles and types.

No job is too big or too small for your interior design contractor.  They will be able to advise you on the smallest pane in the bathroom, to a large sliding door leading out to the patio.  They will listen to your needs and what you will use each room for and then make recommendations based on what they have learned from you and about your family during your initial consultation. Drapery, shutters, and blinds can really finish a home renovation and give it that pizzazz you have been dreaming of.
