As mentioned in the previous post a good quality sofa is one of the foundational elements of a well designed home that contributes to your home’s initial impression and is well worth the investment. The next element that makes the biggest impact in elevating the overall look of a room is without a question the window treatments. The most luxurious look involves layering windows or doors with a combination of hard treatments, such as wood blinds, woven wood shades or shutters and soft textiles such as draperies, sheers and valences. Window treatments can easily bring texture and color into what might otherwise be a plain or ordinary room.
But beyond aesthetics they have a more practical function that protects your home’s biggest assets. Here’s why:
Window treatments improve the energy efficiency of your home saving the cost of heating or cooling your home each month.
Window treatments protect your furnishings from sun damaging UVA rays that can fade wood furniture, floors, carpets, and fabrics.
Window treatments improve the comfort level in your home by blocking drafts in the winter or heat in the summer.
Window treatments prevent eye strain by controlling glare from the sun.
Window treatments protect your privacy by controlling the glare from your neighbors (and crazy as it seems now we even have to worry about peeping drones).
