4 different window treatments to consider this summer

As Mother Nature kindly graces us with her presence this summer, it’s time to embrace more sunshine – especially as it shines into your home. This season, why not let the light in with a new set of gorgeous window treatments? The right arrangement can make your space feel more refreshed and cheerful and less stuffy and stale after a long, dreary winter. It might even save you some money on your energy bill.

One small adjustment to your windows can transform the room from floor to ceiling. It’s time to ditch the heavy drapery and opt for something more light and flowy. Consider filling your home with one – or more – of the following window treatment options this summer:

1. Soft sheers
Since sheer draperies make it easy for natural light to slip through, this option is perfect for that room in your home that relies on artificial lighting. Sheers are great because they can make a serious style statement without looking bulky or taking up too much wall space. They can complete a living space almost effortlessly. Choose sheers in hues that complement the room before making the investment.

2. Lace draperies
A similar choice to traditional sheers, lace draperies make it simple for air to flow through while also adding a layer of elegance to a living space. Lace is a choice material for any living space, such as the family room or dining area. One space that can benefit from lace draperies is the bedroom; it’s the perfect adjustment to make this private room more polished and opulent if you’re in need of an update.

3. Roman shades
If you’re looking to make a bigger presentation of your windows, roman shades make a great choice. This option can be a focal point in the room, acting as another piece of decor. Roman shades are ideal for rooms that get a lot of traffic during the day, as they can block a lot of light if it gets too bright for you and your guests. Additionally, they come in a variety of shades, styles and designs, so you can use them as a neutralizer in a room that’s eccentric, or vice versa.

4. Wood blinds
Are you interested in taking a break from the curtains this summer? Wood blinds are a classic approach to window treatments, and they can work with virtually almost any style depending on the paint color, stain or finish you choose. Wood blinds are not only stylish, but they’re also very functional and have the ability to block ample sunlight, so they can help keep your home comfortable and save on your cooling bill this summer. Wood blinds come in many light hues such as shades of white, which can turn a traditional kitchen into a beachside bistro, or a dull bedroom into a cozy cottage.
