Window Treatment Trends by Room
When you’re thinking of window treatment ideas for each room in your home, it’s important to consider the function of the room. How much privacy do you need? Is light control or glare a concern? How do you use the room? Is durability important? What about energy efficiency?
A popular window treatment for bedrooms, Duette® Honeycomb Shades not only provide superior energy efficiency but also an unparalleled blackout effect with the LightLock™ design option. Or, you can combine two opacities of your choice into a single shade with the Duolite® system. By combining a blackout fabric with a light-filtering fabric, you can enjoy just the right level of light control throughout the day, and nighttime privacy at bedtime.
Your bathroom is most likely the most humid room in your home, so durable window treatments like faux wood shutters that resist moisture are an ideal choice. Palm Beach™ Polysatin™ Shutters are made with a UV-resistant polysatin compound that prevents them from warping, cracking, fading, chipping, peeling or discoloring over time, even in high humidity. This is especially beneficial if your windows are located near your shower.
An elegant alternative to traditional window shades, Roman Shades combine the softness of a drapery with a clean, crisp appearance. In modern kitchens that often feature a neutral or all-white palette with stainless steel accents, Roman shades are a great way to add color, pattern and texture. Vignette® Modern Roman Shades are available in a wide range of luxurious fabrics, and you can select fabric-wrapped hardware for a beautiful, cohesive look.
Even on cloudy days, UV rays can damage your artwork and fade your fabrics and carpet. They can also dry out and bleach hardwood floors and wood furniture, breaking down the paint or stain finishes and joint sealants. To protect your living room furnishings, explore solar shades, such as Designer Screen Shades. These offer excellent UV protection and are available in hundreds of gorgeous fabrics as well as opacities ranging from sheer to opaque and 14% to 0% openness.
