Have you ever walked into a room without anything covering the windows? The room looks open and has plenty of natural light…but it also can make the room look bland and bare.
Part of making a house a home is adding your own style to it, while still considering the functionality of the home. Window treatments are a part of this. Whether you choose blinds, shutters or shades, the right window treatments can help set each room apart.
-Set the proper mood.
Each room has a different purpose and so you’ll want to set different moods. Your living room – you may want a cozy feel, while still letting in some soft, natural light. But your bedroom, you may want to have privacy and no light seeping in when you’re trying to get some sleep.
So, we would recommend a multi-purpose shade or shutters for the living room, but then room darkening shades for the bedroom. Since everyone has a different sleep schedule, here’s a great article on choosing the right window treatments for your bedroom.
