Tips for Picking out Window Treatments

Picking out new window treatments can be frustrating, but the process is also full of fun opportunities. The right window treatment can give your windows an incomparable view. Finding the perfect window treatment does not have to be expensive! You will find great deals on window treatments at major retailers and online.

Bamboo
Bamboo is natural, sustainable and looks great in almost any setting. Pair bamboo blinds with white drapes for a clean and relaxing window treatment. Alternatively, bamboo panels and valances can be a classy way to frame windows. Whatever you choose, you will never go wrong with the calming character of bamboo.

Swag
“Swag” is a window treatment term that describes the fancy valance at the top of your display. When choosing your swag, symmetry or asymmetry will be your best fit. A nice and tidy look evokes a sense of luxury and elegance. By allowing one end of your swag to hang the length of the window, you may find a new expression of character. Bay windows are often coupled with swag with great success. If your bay window has an adjacent window, then use an asymmetric swag on the smaller window. This window treatment will help give-off a unified impression over multiple windows.

Cheat
Give your windows a larger than life appearance by cheating your treatment above the windows. Once the blinds and drapes are in place, no one can tell the difference – and you get the added bonus of having windows that seem taller than what they actually are. Also, if your windows are longer than the standard length of blinds, don’t sweat it. Instead of paying big money for one custom blind, buy two blinds and butt them together.

Have fun making your home’s window treatments. Be creative and step out of the ordinary and overused to give your rooms unique character.
