Guide to window coverings

The proper window treatment can really tie a space together and help create a complete look for any room in your home. But in order to find the perfect window covering, you'll have to take into consideration the space you're decorating and the effect you want to achieve.

Coverage

When choosing a window covering for any space, here is an important question to ask yourself: how bright do you want the space to be? Thick curtains in dark colors can often block out light and make a living or dining room seem darker, while simple blinds or sheers may let too much daylight into a bedroom – especially for light sleepers. It's a matter of placement and preference, but it's worth thinking about. It's also important to think about what the room will look like during different times of the day. Take some time before you settle on something. You'll be happier with the end result.

Design

Certain window fashions can reflect Victorian design, with ornate curtain rods , hooks and tiebacks. Other designs are more modern, with a simple look that won't overpower a room. These modern designs are a good choice if you want to bring attention to something else in the room, like a key piece of furniture, while fancy curtains can help frame a beautiful view. As is the case with most interior decorating, there's no right choice. You should choose a design that reflects your taste and the overall feel of the room.

Color and Texture

The choice is ultimately up to you. Some people prefer traditional colors, while others look for something more contemporary. Rich textures work really well with Victorian curtains and baroque style window treatments, while country style curtains often look best if they're light and breezy.

Blinds

Though window blinds are often misunderstood as neutral, basic, traditional items, there are actually several options for homeowners to choose from. Blinds allow homeowners to control the angle and often the amount of light entering a room from outside while still providing some privacy for whoever's inside. Blinds are made of slats with gaps between them, so they don't completely shield a room from natural lighting.

Roller blinds are great in Victorian rooms because of their classic look. Venetian blinds and aluminum blinds have become extremely popular in contemporary and modern kitchens. Other choices include wooden blinds, bamboo blinds (which look great in Asian-inspired rooms) and faux wooden blinds, which are made from slats that provide a wooden look but are convenient to clean. Small windows (often in a bathroom) can be fitted with mini blinds, while vinyl blinds are easy to clean, neutral and relatively inexpensive.

Horizontal blinds are probably mo...
