Installing new blinds, shutters and window treatments is a quick improvement that immediately adds personality to your new home. Settle in by sprucing up your windows.
The right window treatments can add architectural interest to an otherwise nondescript room.
Styles. You'll want to select the right style and the best length to match your aesthetic, whether casual or formal.
Hardware. Decorative hardware can breathe new life into old curtains or drapes. Basic hardware items include:
Updated window treatments can easily change the feel of any room. Once you've decided on window treatments, pick up complementary shades, shutters or blinds to complete your décor.
Natural Woven Shades. Natural woven shade slats are constructed primarily of grasses, raffia, bamboo or jute. Woven shades can be combined with a soft window treatment. They softly filter the light and provide a warm feeling to the room.
Horizontal Blinds. Horizontal blinds are available in varying slat widths to fit most windows. They can be constructed of wood, aluminum, vinyl, or other synthetic materials made to look like stained or painted wood.
Vertical Blinds. Vertical blinds are a good choice for sliding glass doors. Vertical blinds can stack back to reveal the entire glass window. The blinds can also be rotated to control light and maintain privacy. Vertical blinds are available in aluminum, vinyl or fabric.
Shutters. Shutters provide a crisp, architectural appearance that can enhance a room's mouldings while providing excellent light control.
