To give you an idea of window treatments, let’s know about some basics first. If you have some basic window treatment ideas, you can participate with your interior designer and can better decide on the treatment type as per your needs and likings. Window treatments can be classified into hard treatments and soft treatments. The main function of the hard treatment is to take care of the functional requirements. Examples of hard treatments are shutters, blinds and shades. They fulfill some purpose and also add on to the styling value. They are designed and selected as per the specific needs, e.g. to allow or restrict natural light, provide privacy or even allow access to the outside, etc. Soft treatments provide aesthetics and styling and also serve to the functional requirements. At the same time, you can easily dismantle them for cleaning or storing. All the fabric made treatments like window curtains, draperies and soft shades are examples of soft treatments. In most of the cases, you need to combine the two to get the best results. If perfectly blended, these can do wonders for your home, office or commercial complexes. Décor has more than 30 years of experience in both type of treatments and we can create designs which are both functional and great looking.
Window blinds and shades are the modern choices for window treatments. They come in a large variety and you have a choice to choose between custom and ready made blinds and shades. They are made of a variety of materials like fabric, vinyl, wood, honeycomb, bamboo, etc. They are also very flexible in allowing the lights inside the room. Many of these come with one touch control, by which you can either allow or restrict outside view and natural lights. You have the option to choose between horizontal and vertical window blinds and shades.
Now that you have a little idea about window treatments, you can plan well in advance before deciding on your choice. Here is the list of factors which you should take into consideration while deciding on your window treatments.
Room Type: The most important factor in selecting your window function. Which window do you want to treat? Is it in a living room, a bed room or a bath room? Is it your dream home, office or commercial complex? Depending upon your need, you may like to go for a functionality which requires privacy or which is nature friendly. For living rooms, the choice is entirely yours – some people like to allow defused sun-light while others prefer dark rooms with artificial lightings.
Climate: Depending on the external environment and climate, you decide the hard treatments. Of course, you can use the air conditioners to keep your room warm or cool, but if you have wisely selected window treatments, it will surely save your household electricity.
Outside World: What do you see through your window? Is it open sky, a lawn, sea or something beautiful you always like to look at? Or you want to avoid looking outside due to not so good surroundings? This is one of the main deciding factors of your soft window treatments.
