When you’re looking for a way to completely redo a room, window treatments can provide an exciting new vibe. However, if you’d like to get away from the traditional look of curtains, there are some very stylish options. Here are four alternatives to drapes for redesigning any room.
Blinds have come a long way from the metal version of the ’70s and the vinyl mini-blinds popular in the ’80s. The newer wooden blinds are a gorgeous addition to any room and they come in an array of natural and painted colors. Blinds can give your home a neat and tailored look.
Modern shades are also nothing like their vinyl roll-up ancestors. Whether you opt for a flat style, balloon or Roman Shades Cypress, these fabric window coverings are so versatile you can choose any color you like and also incorporate decorations to make them one-of-a-kind.
If you’re looking for a neat way to shade a room from light, consider interior shutters. Coming in a variety of wood types, shutters can cover an entire window or just the bottom half. They also give an extra layer of protection from wind and they make any room feel cozier.
You may have windows in your home where you desire extra privacy such as a bathroom or surrounding your front door. The perfect solution for this situation is frosted film. Found in a variety of patterns and stained glass colors, film is easy to apply and can be cut to any size, just right for irregular windows.
When you’re doing a redecorating project, or just need a change, window coverings as a focal point can really make a statement. Functional options such as shades, blinds and shutters can change the entire feel of a room and make your house look like new.
