Window Treatment Ideas

    (Provided by ABC Glass & Mirror, Inc. - Monday, June 22, 2015)

After you upgrade to energy-efficient replacement windows, you might realize that new window treatments are also in order. Homeowners today can choose from a number of options when it comes to window coverings. For instance, vinyl mini-blinds are still available, offering you a quick, low cost fix that addresses a range of privacy and lighting concerns. However, you’ll also want to check out innovative products like cellular blinds. These window treatments are made of fabric that forms individual horizontal cells. Not only does this design offer an appealing textured look, but it makes the blinds energy efficient. You can even opt for blinds with two or three layers of cells if you reside in a locale where energy loss through windows is a significant concern. Another great option in blinds is wooden blinds. Variations on this idea include faux wood blinds as well as indoor shutters made of wood or faux wood. These products offer a nice level of privacy and work well for preserving a natural theme in a room.

When it comes to curtains, some of today’s popular trends are stripes, colorful patterns, stylized floral looks, and Greek key style designs. Aesthetically your curtain options are practically limitless, and there are some great practical features offered, too. For instance, black-out curtains allow you to keep sleeping areas dark at all times, while other curtains are designed to let in light while reducing glare.  Many pieces must come together if you are to achieve loveliness with your new curtains. These include – 
Curtain rods.
Length of the panels.
Number of panels used per windows.
Choice of colors.
Choice of pattern.
Presence/style of valances.
Curtains can deeply impact a room’s ambience, so clarify for yourself the design goals you have for the space and then choose your window treatments accordingly.
