When doing a complete overhaul of your home or even just redesigning one room, details are what make or break your project. Some of these details are ones you wouldn’t even think about initially, but end up stressing out about later on. One of the main ones is window treatments. Often times people will ask what are the different types of window treatments? We’re here to give you a concise list of a few of the most popular ones to help get you started in the right direction.
Shutters are one of the most classic looks for a window treatment. Not only does it add structure and symmetry to a room, but it also can warm a room up by allowing the perfect amount of light in throughout the day. They are lovely for bathrooms and kitchens mostly, but don’t be afraid to branch out and try them out on different areas of your home. More people have started designing with them in bedrooms as well due to the way that the shutters allow soft amounts of light into large spaces as well as the elegance of the design.
Solar shade window treatments are perfectly opaque and allow you to have a substantial amount of control over how much light you’re letting in at one time, without entirely blacking out a room either. They’re better known as “window sunglasses” for the nature of the design and nothing could be more of an accurate description.
Faux wood blinds are a great alternative to real wooden blinds. Not only do they still give you the structure and the elegance of a wooden blind, but they are also far more affordable and will be more resistant to moisture. This makes them the perfect kind of blind to use in a bathroom or kitchen because real wood when exposed to moisture cracks and warps whereas the faux wood will be able to withstand it all.
Woven shades are another great alternative to solar shades. They come in a variety of colors and materials which can be used to accent your room as well. On top of this, they can be lined so that for bedrooms in particular, you can block out all light while trying to sleep while preserving the look of the woven design in the room as well.
