While every room has its purpose, remember that your window treatments can provide the atmosphere you are trying to achieve. A little research can bring superior results in the finished room.
Let’s take a look at the living room. While there is much emphasis given to the anchor of the room, the shades can add warmth and comfort to the entire décor. The living area may serve dual purposes, as an entertainment center as well. Then you might think about darkening shades with light weight sheers to keep the room cozy while getting the light levels you desire.
As you prepare to add window treatments to your kitchen, you need to keep a couple of factors in mind. You need good ventilation to vent the heat, while avoiding gushes of air. Keep the heat and moisture factors in mind as you select your window treatments for this central focus of your home.
Everyone loves to relax over a good meal. For the dining room area you should consider treatments that allow the glow of the outside light source to filter into your space, creating a soft, glowing atmosphere.
