| | Window Treatments

 

Accessories and accent pieces have a way of bringing a room together and making it feel more complete. A room filled with pieces of art, throw pillows, cozy blankets, coffee table books and other trinkets can help you ensure a wholesome feel throughout your home. Another critical element that can help you achieve this satisfaction (and that many tend to forget about) are window treatments.

Window treatments are not only a lovely wall accessory — they can also control the amount of heat and cold that enter your living space depending on the season, and protect your furniture from fading due to exposure to UV rays.

Whether you’re looking for window treatments for an extra layer of privacy or you feel like your windows are just missing something, there’s a great option for every room. Here are our window treatment recommendations based on the specific space in your home:

“Your workspace needs optimal natural lighting.”

Sheer curtains in the home office
Your workspace needs optimal natural lighting — this will make it easier to concentrate on your projects and ensure clear focus from start to finish. Sheer curtains provide a subtle layer of privacy while brightening the room with ease.

Honeycomb shades in the bedroom
The bedroom is another place that can benefit from natural lighting during the day, but this is also a space that deserves the most privacy. Honeycomb shades can filter out some of the light but offer optimal privacy when you need it most.

Roman shades in the dining room
The dining room is a great place to wind down with family and friends after a long day of work, wining and dining with your favorite drinks and food. Roman shades are made of bamboo or lightweight fabric, so they let some light in but cannot be seen through. Since they fold up in pleats as they raise, you can bring in partial light and maintain some privacy depending on the time of day or your mood.

Floor-to-ceiling treatments in the living room
For many, the living room is one of the most important spaces in the home for aesthetics because it’s a place to entertain; it’s a place to make a strong first impression on your guests as well. Floor-to-ceiling treatments are great for stylistic purposes, but they can also make your walls look taller based on their placement.

Valance window treatments in the kitchen
The kitchen is just like the home office in the sense that it’s a workplace. The more natural lighting, the better. And since privacy isn’t the most important worry in this area of your home, valance treatments make a perfect choice. They add a hint of style to your windows and ensure you’re getting the most out of the natural lighting. You can also layer valances over blinds or longer treatments for a formal approach to style.
