Can Window Treatments Make a Difference to Your Etobicoke Home?

Posted by Milana Cizmar on November 7, 2012

The right window treatment can take a room from bland to beautiful. Here are a few pointers to help you choose window coverings that meet your Etobicoke home’s needs while enhancing your decor:

Analyze your requirements. Is privacy the primary concern, or is it the sun’s glare that you want to control? Is heat and sound insulation important and is room darkening a must? Do you need to camouflage a window with an unpleasant view?

Transform the look of your windows. Update a non descript window with an attractive wood trim. Create the illusion of a larger window by hanging drapes past the length and width of the frame. Apply decorative window film to mask defects.

Define the style of your room. Shutters and blinds offer a clean look for contemporary settings while curtains and sheers are softer and better suited to more traditional decors. Vivid colours and patterns add interest to neutral walls and upholstery.

Choose curtains and sheers made from quality materials. Ensure durability with reinforced hems, weighted bottoms and a sturdy top panel to hold the curtain’s weight. Depending on the materials, curtains can provide privacy and light protection.

Install roller or roman blinds for easy set-up and room darkening capacity. They come in standard dimensions and are available in a myriad of colours and fabrics. Cellular shades offer the best sound absorption and boost energy efficiency.

Invest in venetian blinds or shutters for a sophisticated look. Available in a wide range of colours, they will last for years when constructed from quality materials. You can adjust light at a touch and increase privacy by angling them appropriately.

Complete your look with complimentary hardware and accessories. Curtain rods are available in a variety of styles, colours and tones. Create your own finishing touches with ribbon, tassels, beads or long scarves as tie-backs.
