Bringing Style to your Home

You can use window treatments to provide extra comfort and bring style into your home.


Probably one of the most functional design elements you have in your decorating toolkit, window treatments can completely transform the look and feel of any room by giving more depth, style and comfort. But don't rush into a decision for your windows, choosing the right window treatment requires careful consideration if you want to make a stunning impact.

Before you dress your windows with standard curtains or blinds, consider the following tips for choosing the perfect window treatments and be sure to visit your local Finishing Touches (inside Builders Warehouse) to see for yourself how easy it is to add style and sophistication to your home:



Consider Purpose

The last thing you want to do is to rush to the store and purchase a set of window treatments and end up with a sad result that adds absolutely nothing to the room. Every room has a purpose and each will need a window treatment that addresses specific needs, whether it be privacy, control of natural light, or simply to address the atmosphere of the room.

As an example, your home office or dining room might receive a lot of sunlight during the summer months, which results in the room becoming overly hot and uncomfortable to work/sit in. In this instance you might want to consider a layered treatment such as Honeycomb Blinds for light control and curtains to finish off the look. By carefully considering the purpose of each room, you can select the perfect window treatment.

Consider Style

There are many different types of window treatments, from curtains to window shutters. Each type of treatment offers something different and is available in a selection of colours and styles. Make sure to ask for help if you are unsure about what window treatment would work best for a particular room. The experts at Finishing Touches will be able to assist you with curtain rods or rails to complement the style of window treatment you choose.
