Dress your Windows in Style

It's fun to decorate the windows in your home, and every room in a home can benefit from a beautiful window treatment that provides the finishing touch.

Window treatments are an essential part of interior design, and yet, window treatments are so easily overlooked or ignored. A window treatment can be used to add texture, pattern and colour, or simply be used to frame a beautiful view. Window treatments can also be used to protect your upholstered furniture, filter sunlight during the summer months, warm up a home in winter, or add a level of privacy. All-in-all, window treatments are an important element in any room.

One important benefit of installing window treatments, and one that should not be overlooked, is energy efficiency. Window treatments can be used to insulate a home, especially as windows are the main culprits attributed to energy loss. Rather than replace window frames, adding a window treatment can block out drafts and filter sunlight to help keep your home warm in winter and cool in summer - saving you money on heating and cooling.

When decorating a room, take the time to research what options are available for window treatments. Take the time to decide what type of window treatment you would like for a particular room, or put together a mood board of ideas. A visit to Finishing Touches will provide you with plenty of options to choose from. They offer a range of rods, poles, finials and tracks to complement any style of decor, as well as made-to-measure curtains in current fabrics.

Rather than an afterthought, your window treatments should be a focal point. They should add softness and luxury to a room and it pays to invest in a window treatment that is elegant and timeless and will last for many years. Choose fittings, fabrics and accessories that complement your existing room decor, but also take into consideration the amount of privacy and light control you need, as this may require a layered window treatment, blinds or shutters.
