Shutters are beautiful for the living room especially if there is a large picture window. Custom Bass Wood Shutters, like the ones we offer, are appealing from the outside as well as from the inside of the house, which is a very important element to design. What I adore about Shutters is they offer both privacy and light control and they actually add some value to your home. Custom Shutters are like Tiffany….they are classic and timeless.
For a more formal look, one can consider draperies to match the decor of the room. The look of a layered window treatment, for example., woven wood roman shades paired with drapery panels adds elegance while being very functional. Timbershades plantation shutters Sydney has a wide range of shutters for you to choose from for the aesthetics of your home.
Solar or cellular shades protect the living room from direct sunlight. This is important because even with the best persian carpet cleaning, direct sunlight causes carpets to fade and appear dirty. Maid Easy vacuum cleaner reviews will help you choose the right cleaning option.
When considering window treatments for the family room, it is important to consider that they shield the room from glare for television watching while allowing in sunlight if desired. Custom Wood Shutters to match the decor of the room, especially if there are hardwood floors, is a wonderful choice. For a more stylish look, consider wood blinds topped with a valance. Solar shades allow maximum light to filter in while still creating a soft elegant look.
The kitchen is the room where families gather and cook and you want a durable, easy to clean window covering. The biggest consideration here would be ease of cleaning and water resistant. An excellent choice for a kitchen window would be the faux roman valance and faux wood blinds. These are economically desirable and moisture resistant. Cordless shades are a consideration in this area as well. And, another option that I love is grass shades. They provide semi privacy, texture and most of them are resistant to staining. Talking about kitchens, it is important that you keep your kitchen sparkling clean, since the health of your family depends on it.

As in the bathroom, this area must have window treatments that clean easily and are resistant to moisture. Additionally, a consideration is the ability to access the window for easy opening. The faux wood blinds are an excellent choice and these won’t warp or fade. Or, if the budget permits, PVC Shutters are an excellent solution.
For formal dining rooms, consider draperies which add elegance and block light. Tall drapes with a floor to ceiling effect are elegant, dramatic but still inviting. Also, what really makes the drapery treatment is the right hardware…we have so many fabulous choices today from flat polished nickel rods to custom wrought iron and rings. Another good choice for a formal dining room would be opaque panels which come in many colors and materials.
For a more casual atmosphere, consider roman or roller shades which keep the space warm and private while offering a homey feeling.
When considering drapes, it is best to line them with blackout material for sleeping comfort. Privacy is important in the master bedroom, with large amounts of light desirable in the day and privacy at night. I love to compliment the blackout drapery with a beautiful sheer that has a pattern that dances in the window. I recommend to my clients to spend their money where they spend their time.
When considering window treatments for children’s rooms, the number one consideration is safety. Cordless window treatments are the only way to go and consider blinds that will not fall if pulled on. Basic mini blinds are available in every color and are functional as well. The second important item to consider is the ability of the window treatment to allow light in as well as darken the room for naps and bedtime. Fabric and woven wood roman shades are ideal for kids rooms. But, if total blackout is desired, we need to put a blackout roller shade and a Custom Bass Wood Shutter on top of that. Believe me, it does the trick…and it stands the test of time.
Sunrooms, Patios and Porches
In this area, outdoors shades are innovative, lightweight and since they are made from solar screen material, they block the heat and glare from the sun. These window treatments allow the cool breeze to come in but offer privacy. Learn about Fly Screens vs. Security Screens and which one would be best for you.
A perfect choice for French Doors are sheer shades. They gently filter light into the home and are light and breezy. Another excellent option are roller and solar shades which come in a variety of colors and textures.
Shutters or wood blinds are a perfect choice for Bay Windows. Fabric roman blinds will add softness and they come in many patterns and colors, but you must remember that Roman Shades don’t really present that well to the street side so be careful on that one. If you have a particularly beautiful view, consider a simple cornice box.
Sliding Door Window Treatments
A good choice for sliding doors would be vertical blinds which can be closed tight like drapes, although they are not, by any means of one’s imagination, my first choice. I prefer custom drapery as a one way draw. Panel track blinds are a modern excellent alternative and they are offered in many fabrics, patterns and colors.
Hanging draperies is usually a poor choice since this area has so much traffic and the drapes will be constantly subject to opening and closing.
