 The Different Types of Window Treatments for Your Home Look like a Hotel Finish


A window treatment is a decorative or functional covering that can be used to enhance the visual or functional impact of a window. Blinds, drapes, curtains, and glass blocks are examples of window coverings that can change the lighting, temperature, energy efficiency, and privacy of a room. Custom window treatments may provide a unique touch to your house's decor while also providing practical home comforts.


Different types of window treatments can have a huge impact on your interior design, whether you are moving into a new home or redesigning your apartment. Window treatments come in a variety of styles and can alter the look and feel of a room.

 

Curtains


One of the most common window treatments is curtains. Curtain panels are often purchased in pairs and hung from curtain rods. They are available in a variety of materials, thicknesses, patterns, colors, and designs, and can be used to add color and texture to your home. The function of the curtains will determine which type is best for your needs. For example, Sheer fabric curtains will not block sunlight or create seclusion.

 

Drapes


Drapes are much thicker than curtains and give far more privacy. Drapes are widely used to block out light and are usually double-lined. Drapes are more formal than curtains, and they keep cold winds and heat out better.


Valances


Valances are decorative tops that hide the curtain, drapery, blind, or shade mounting hardware. These fabric tops are largely decorative and draped around the top of the window frame. Pleated, arched, and flat are some of the styles available.

 

Blinds


Unlike drapes and curtains, window blinds are constructed of hard materials such as wood or vinyl. Faux wood blinds are also more stable and moisture-resistant than traditional wood blinds. Slats in blinds can be angled open with a mechanism or pulled open with a cable to control the amount of privacy and light in a room (they also come in cordless versions). Horizontal blinds work well for small windows, while long vertical blinds work well for sliding glass doors.

 

Cornices


Cornices are similar to valances, except they have a box-like shape that fits around the mounting hardware of window treatment. Wood and other hard materials are used to make cornices. Cornices and curtains can be used together to add a coordinated touch to a muted interior.

 

Treated Glass


You can even treat the window glass itself if you can't find the proper window treatment for your home. If you don't want to install curtains or blinds because you prefer your wide bay windows, frosted glass, stained glass, and window films are all options for maintaining privacy without having to bother with finding the correct drapery for your room.

 

 

Panel Tracks


For tall windows or sliding doors, panel tracks are an attractive option. Vertical blinds can be replaced with these fabric sliding window panels, which offer a trendy option. The panels are mounted on the wall or ceiling and move on a track from side to side.

 

Swags


Window swags are long pieces of fabric that wrap around a curtain rod and cascade to the ground. Swags soften and enhance the appearance of windows.
