Window treatments can greatly improve the look of your home no matter which room they are in. Curtains and drapes are functional as well as aesthetic, letting you control the amount of sunlight that enters your home. They also provide privacy from the outside world should you wish to close them during the day or at night. Every room in your home can benefit from window treatments—the fun part is designing different ones for each room! Read on to learn more about designing window treatments.
Your living room is a place to relax, spend time with family, and entertain guests. The right window treatment will help you tie the room together and can improve the appearance of the room. Look around the room and see what style seems to dominate. If you have a formal living room with traditional furniture pieces, you may want to choose a more formal window treatment. The colors should complement each other so there is harmony in the room. Depending on the directions your windows face, you may choose to have a partial window treatment, or the option of full drapes to completely cover the windows.
Good lighting is very important in a kitchen, and the right window treatment can contribute to the room’s style and function. An airy valance is a great addition to a kitchen window that also has shades or blinds, and can also work well on its own. Your choice of material for your kitchen window treatment will affect how much light enters. Generally, lighter materials and colors will work best in kitchens to keep the mood fresh.
While you probably want your bedroom to be dark for sleeping, you may also want natural light for getting ready for your day. Floor-to-ceiling drapes in a dark, rich color will keep the light out when you want to rest, and will open up to reveal a new day awaiting you.

Window treatments originated as a practical way to add privacy and to control light in a home. Today, window treatments are an essential part of a home’s décor. Custom drapes can soften a room’s hard architectural lines by a creating decorative look:
There are several types of curtain panels, each offering a unique look and style to your home. Rod pocket panels have a channel of fabric at the top and offer a simple, casual look for your home. Panels with rings have rings attached at the top for sliding the curtains onto the rod. The curtain rings show off the hardware and complement most styles of interior design. Pleated curtain panels offer a classic look to your home. Pleated panels may be the right choice to create an elegant and sophisticated look. Tab top curtain panels have tabs of fabric through which you can slide your curtain rod. For country and cottage styles, tab top curtains are a good choice.
Valances add a touch of color, softness, or pattern. Valances can also hide the hardware of your curtain. In rooms where privacy isn’t an issue, you may use a valance by itself. Valances can also be used in conjunction with other window treatments for greater privacy.
Swags are pieces of loose fabric draped across the top of a curtain and that hang down the sides of the curtains. Swags can dress up a room or can be used in cottage- or country-style homes.
Shades offer an alternative to curtains. Balloon shades have a billowing, rich, romantic look. Tie-up shades can be rolled or folded up and tied into place. Roman shades have an elegant look and create horizontal folds when raised.

Whether you are starting a new business or giving an established business a makeover, it is important to start by choosing the right colors. The colors that you choose will be incorporated into every design element, from the interior fabrics to the upholstery. To get tips for choosing the perfect colors for your business, check out the guide below.
Consider the Effects of Certain Colors
You can start your search for the perfect colors by doing some research on the psychology of color. Different colors will make your employees and guests feel or think of certain emotions. This means you can create an energetic environment by choosing orange or yellow or create a more relaxed space with calming colors such as blue or white.
Think About the Colors in Your Logo
If your business already has a logo, you can use this as inspiration for the colors to use in the décor scheme. Future clients or guests may find your business through an advertisement featuring your logo. Using the same colors in your business décor scheme will help these clients feel more comfortable and welcome inside of your business.
Look at Different Options
Are you having trouble choosing colors or interior fabrics? If so, you can get the help you need by looking online or visiting a fabric store. Seeing these selections will help you determine what style elements you like as well as what style elements you dislike, allowing you to narrow down your options for your business’s new colors.
Consult With Your Team
Set up a meeting to discuss color options with your team. This is a great way to get more opinions on the color selection and give your employees an opportunity to share their thoughts and let their voices be heard. You may end up with some great color selections that you had not thought of before!
