Dressing up your windows can increase the value and cosmetic appeal of any style home. But when choosing which window treatments are right for you, there are several important things to consider.
Make sure to think about the different function of each room and the amount of light you need before selecting which type of window covering is ideal. Remember it’s also important to consider the overall flow of the house, room to room, when choosing coordinating window decor.

In general, window treatments should blend into the space and not contrast with the current color scheme in the room. Occasionally, the window coverings can be the focal point of the space, while staying within the overall theme.
Neutral colors including white, off-white and grey, are often the best choices due to adaptability. Those colors also bring added brightness and will open up the room.
In larger rooms with bigger windows, you can use blinds, shades or shutters with larger pleats, slats or louver sizes. In comparison, treatments in smaller rooms should be kept more on the simple side.
We have window shades in a variety of style and colors. The most versatile, honeycomb shades, come in more than 200 colors, sizes and fabrics, and fit any style from traditional to modern. Other choices include woven wood shades, roller and solar shades and contemporary Roman.
Our blinds and shutters are made from a variety of materials to fit every need and budget. These options include the rich natural beauty of real wood, the more economical alternative of faux wood or the classic and durable aluminum.
Another question to ask yourself is, vertical or horizontal? Horizontal lines tend to draw the eye around the room, so put them in a space, like a living or family room that you want to highlight. Vertical lines are typically more classic, formal and draw the eye upward, perfect for a dining room.
It’s important to think about how your windows look from the curb as well as from inside your home. If you are on a limited budget, start with coverings in more prominent, downstairs windows that face onto the street.
