A very nice way to bring out the character of a room and set a feel is with the window treatments. When considering them, the first thing to consider is what kind of window the treatment is for. To a large extent, the window will determine what kinds of curtains and draperies work best.
The designers at Michael Nash Design, Build and Home are here to help you find what works best not just for the window, but also for you and the look you are trying to achieve.
Blinds and shades can come in a variety of materials from fabric, wood, faux wood and others, including venetian blinds that can be metal or plastic. There are also blinds made of bamboo and other materials. You may choose to go with light filtering shades, which also come in a variety of materials, man-made and natural.
For larger windows and patio doors, you may choose to go with curtains. You might even add an additional bit of style to a window by using a sheer curtain over a blind or shade. As with most home design items, there are many options and a variety of materials for curtains, from silk to man-made materials. Curtains can also be insulated, providing a green element to your style by helping to keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
And don’t forget the design element that can make your curtains – the curtain rod. These can be simple or ornate and come in a number of looks including pewter, brushed bronze, oil rubbed bronze, burnished brass and a variety of blacks and browns.
Finally, you can add another design element to a window, one that also can provide privacy – a film treatment. This can be as simple as giving your window a frosted and beveled look or it can be a stained glass window look.
The options are many. Let us help you determine what works best for you and your look.
