One of the most overlooked areas of interior design, yet one of the utmost importance, are the window dressings. This takes up a lot of space in the room, it is where your eye is naturally led and can help to set the mood and atmosphere so it needs to be an area of key consideration. Here are a few ideas for every budget.
Roller blinds are a great and affordable option because they can be highly effective at shutting out light, they are easy to operate and you can even change the fabric. This means that you can change the blinds with ease and use them to match the current season or any decorative changes that you make to the room.
Day & Night Blinds
Day & Night blinds from places like Swift Direct Blinds use opaque and translucent horizontal stripes which can be altered to adjust the amount of privacy you get and natural light you let in. They are a more affordable option than shutters but can look just as good particularly when they compliment the colour scheme of a room.
Curtains are a good option for the winter months as they can help to keep the cold out and create a snug, cosy feel in the home. Additionally, there is a material for every taste and budget so you should easily be able to find a curtain material and colour that you like, matches the interior design style and is within your budget.
Tier-on-tier shutters are ideal for those that live on a busy street and you often feel “on-show” to passers-by. This is because they are excellent at shutting out the outside world but you could open the top panels to let in natural light if you wish. Additionally, they can look highly stylish and be painted or purchased in a particular colour to match your decorative style.
Window film is a highly affordable way to increase the privacy in a room without blocking out natural light and there are many stylish designs to choose from which can improve the way a room both looks and feels. Many people have window film as well as curtains or blinds so that they have the option of making the room dark and keeping the cold out.
These are your main options when it comes to window treatments. There is a type for every taste and budget so it should be easy to find what you are looking for and you could even look to change your window treatments as the seasons change.
