Advantages to the Size of Your Home’s Window Treatments

Whether you are remodeling your home or moving into a new one, stylish window treatments add your own personal touch to any room.

Window treatments have the ability to create privacy, add color and natural light to any room, and tie the room together. Curtains, shades, shutters, and blinds allow you to add something special and exclusive to your home. The length of the fabric can also be a huge factor in the look and feel you’re trying to create.

Longer Window Treatments

Window treatments that begin at the ceiling and end at the floor gives the appearance of a higher, larger space. Longer treatments can also keep out the natural light by having dark coloring and keeping the treatments closed. Longer window treatments give a room a sense of disclosure and privacy! Longer curtains add a focal point to any living room, sitting room or bedroom.

Shorter Window Treatments

Shorter window treatments are perfect for giving any room privacy while also letting in the natural light. Roman shades accent any space with fabric and allow natural light while still providing the privacy of a shade. Blinds allow for light control in a room. Whether you prefer little or more light, blinds let you control how much light to allow into your room. A valance would look perfect in any kitchen or bathroom window adding just enough light adding a comfortable, homey feeling to any home!
