Aside from helping reduce the amount of sunlight, outdoor temperature and noise from entering your home, window treatments help address home design issues, resulting in better-looking interiors.
In this article we’ll talk about home design issues and provide tips regarding the best window treatments to deal with them. These tips are courtesy of your home improvement experts from Renewal by Andersen® of Kansas City.
Small houses will feel smaller if natural light is prevented from entering. Use slim matchstick blinds to let natural light in while providing your space with some privacy.
Alternatively, small homes with small rooms can also benefit from using tall drapes or curtains as these create contrast and make rooms feel bigger than they actually are. These are also perfect for homes with low ceilings.
A Lack of Windows
Windows let natural light illuminate interiors. If your home has very few windows, opt to use sheer curtains to let natural light in and prevent your rooms from feeling closed off.
Too Many Windows
If your home has too many windows, you might get overwhelmed with the amount of sunlight coming in. Curtains and drapes will help reduce the amount of sunlight entering your home.
Too much curtain and valance, however, might be overwhelming as well. Opt to put lambrequins in some windows instead.
Homes With Plain Walls
Roman shades in bold colors add beauty to rooms with plain, neutral colors. Urban homes that suffer from a lack of plants and greens can use botanical-printed Roman shades in green, blue and floral colors. These will add a refreshing feel.
Homes With Patterned Walls
Homes with patterns from wallpapers can benefit from using curtains with abstract prints. Rooms with patterns, on the other hand, will benefit from using shades with contrasting patterns as these can help make the room feel less confining.
