It doesn’t take a major upgrade to completely alter the atmosphere of a room in your home. In fact, if you are not looking to spend a lot of money, new window treatments can be just what your room needs to look updated, airy, and beautiful. If you aren’t sure where to start when picking your next window treatments, consider a few of our tips as you begin the decision making process.
Evaluate your window
First and foremost, evaluate your window. Are you looking to cover it up because it looks old, or because there is moisture in between the panes? If so, a window treatment will only be a short term fix. Instead of a new treatment for an old window, choose instead to invest in a new window. You might be surprised to learn that a quality window can not only make your room look better, but can also save you on energy costs. Once you have the window of your dreams, you will realize that you may prefer a more minimalist treatment to showcase your new window.
Let the light in
A new, updated window will give you a more clear view of the outside. A benefit that comes from this unobstructed view is more sunlight, which can make your home seem lighter, brighter, and larger. When you are investigating window treatments to accentuate your new window, find a treatment that will still allow plenty of sunlight to come in. Even your bedroom should feature a treatment that doesn’t darken the room too much when you aren’t sleeping; let the light in!
Keep your privacy
Your new window will give you clear views of the outdoors, but this can also make for some privacy issues. Find a window treatment that can offer you the privacy you need for that particular room, such as light weight blinds that you can close when you want.
Your new window is a showstopper, and a new treatment can make it a highlight of your room. If you are looking for a treatment simply because you dislike your current windows, give us a call or stop in our showroom to view many window options. We’d love to guide you through your next project.
