Get Great Style with These Windows Treatments

Update your window treatments to add a different feel to your home. You can choose from more than a dozen treatments, styles and designs. While shopping for window treatments, focus on color, texture and size. Thickness and material are two other important features to focus on when choosing window treatments. Important points and styles to consider include:

Check out these window treatment options

As a starting point, consider the number of windows that you have at your house. Also,ask yourself a few questions. For example – Do you want to leave any of the windows uncovered or decorated with only a top hem? How many single panes do you need to get treatments for? Walk through every room at your house. Your kitchen may have short, double pane windows, while your bathroom may have a short, single pane window.

Fabric and rods

Fabric that window treatments are made in vary, ranging from silk to cotton, lace, linen and polyester. Heavier fabric adds extra insulation to your house. On the flip side, heavier fabric blocks out natural light. After you choose the fabric that you want, it’s time to measure your windows.

Measure the length and width of your windows before you buy window treatments. You want enough material to cover a single or double pane, depending on the type of windows you have. Before you measure your windows, decide if you want to mount a rod outside or inside the window frame.

To mount your rod outside the window frame, take measurements horizontally from the top edge of the window. To mount the rod on the inside of the window frame, measure the actual window. Also, measure the length of windows.

Regarding getting the treatments that you want, you could buy two single pane treatments and use them on a double pane window. Just make sure that the top border fits both rods, as some double pane windows are designed to fit one long window rod instead of two short rods.


Cord blinds are traditional window treatments that make it a cinch to invite natural light into your home. A downside of installing cord blinds is that the cords could get tangled or become a safety hazard if young children play with them. Cordless blinds lower this danger. Just know that there are cords in cordless blinds.They stream through the blinds instead of hanging off a side of the blinds.


There are wood, bamboo, Roman, roller, cellular and metal window shades. Too add personality to shades, you could get custom designs on the shades. Darker shades can reduce outside noise at your house. To truly soundproof your home,consider installing soundproof windows. If you like a natural look, you could install bamboo or natural wood shades. It’s a great way to get an island look and feel.


Panels on shutters are thicker than panels found on traditional shades. Shutters work well with cottages and beachfront homes. A drawback with shutters is that they may bang during high winds or storms.

Headers to top off window treatments spotlight your design choices. There is so much that you can do with window treatments. You could even change window treatments in one to two rooms of your house every several years. It could give you the sense that you’re living in an upgraded space.
