The role of window treatments in interior design is often underappreciated. When used thoughtfully, blinds, shades, curtains, valances and shutters can address the shortcomings of any space.
Today, Renewal by Andersen® of Houston talks about typical room design issues window treatments can neatly solve.
1. Too Many Windows
For the most part, having lots of windows benefits your space. These glass units can create a seamless connection between your home and the outside world when partnered with doors. With energy-efficient panes, they will admit a ton of natural light without allowing excessive heat gain.
However, the overabundance of windows may lead to loss of privacy. To stay out of view, dress your glass units with sheer curtains. These coverings lend some obscurity to the room and still let in a generous amount of daylight.
2. A Low Ceiling
Regardless of the size of your windows and patio doors, a low ceiling can make your space a bit claustrophobic. To produce an illusion of more height, use ceiling-to-floor drapes. Tall drapes elongate the wall, making the room feel less tiny than actually is.
3. Monochromatic Colors
Add a punch of color to your rather characterless room with patterned shades, textured blinds or bold-hued shutters. These arresting accents can instantly become the center of attraction in the space. To pull this off, Renewal by Andersen of Houston recommends using visual elements that beautifully contrast with the dominant colors.
4. Tall Windows
Sometimes, having large-glass units can be a dilemma if you do not like thick fabric smothering your space. To round out the look of these huge fixtures without overwhelming the room, any interior design–savvy window and door replacement expert would advise hanging lambrequins. These decorative draperies offer interesting shapes and a sense of movement in the space.
