Window treatments can transform even a mundane window into the focal point of the space. An eye catching pattern or color can draw attention to this area. Window treatments can be treated as a work of art, so be creative and have fun. You can add tassels, flowers or beads. Anything to make it more creative or to fit your particular taste. If you don’t like it or change your mind, you can always take it down and replace it with something else that works!
Window treatments can reflect both your home’s architecture and your personal style. Window treatments lean more toward simple straight lines. But many of these treatments are being made with luxury fabrics such as velvet, damask and even fur and leather. Using treatments to reduce glare such as sheers can be helpful if the room gets an excessive amount of sunlight.
Draperies are definitely a decorative addition to any room and they tend to be longer than curtains and produced with velvet or cotton (heavy fabrics). A valance is a fabric covering that goes around the curtain rod and they come in many different styles including roman, waterfall valances, blouson, pinch pleat, or box.
