Inspirations for stylish window treatments

When it comes to choosing new custom window coverings for your home, you might not know where to begin. There are thousands of options out there for you to choose from, from the color and style of the fabric to the brand itself. Different rooms in your house will have differing needs for coverings — your bedroom would probably do better with thick custom drapes while only blinds are needed in the bathroom. Should you find yourself overwhelmed with the sheer variety you have in front of you, there are a few things you should keep in mind to help you out.

Here are a few tips for choosing new window coverings:

  • Go with wood: If you are looking to soften the amount of light that comes into a room, Hunter Douglas wood blinds are your best bet. The simple wood design will be able to filter out the harsh light that you don't want to come into the room, without looking too heavy or burdensome on the windows.
  • Try texture: To try and shake up the look of your windows, you should opt for treatments that have a bit of texture to them. This will add visual interest to the space, while still functioning as a way to keep unwanted light and onlookers out of your household.
  • Use neutral colors: The best window treatments will be stylish but understated in a room. You should go with colors that are a little more subdued and blend into the background, so the shades of your couch and other fabrics can really pop. Avoid anything too bright or distracting for your drapes.
