Window décor can be as stunning as any interior decoration. Choosing the right window design treatment is the hard part . There are varied kinds of window treatments – shutters, shades and curtains – that can beautify your room in the most elegant way and add aesthetic value to it. Some window treatments are attractive to the eye while some restore privacy to a room and keep it dark.

Let’s have a look at some of the window treatments that can suit the style of any room:

Sheer Panels

Sheer panels are curtains made of semi-transparent and light fabric. They provide some degree of privacy and diffuse light. As far as the design element is concerned, sheer panels cater a soft look to the windows. Sheer curtains are an ideal choice for living rooms where privacy is not a concern.

Light-filtering Curtains

These window treatments are heavier than sheer. They offer a good amount of privacy. They are made from various fabrics and their design styles make them versatile. Light-filtering curtains are the right choice for nighttime privacy in living rooms.

Blackout Curtains

Blackout draperies have the greatest light blocking power. They are usually made of decorative fabrics with a lining of heavy fabric. This double lining keeps the light out of the room and insulates it against cold and heat coming from the windows. Blackout curtains are the perfect choice for bedrooms.

Venetian Blinds

Venetian blinds have horizontal slats made of various materials like vinyl, wood and metal. The best thing about these window treatments is they can fit almost all types of windows and also offer different degrees of privacy. They are suitable for most rooms but they will not block light fully in bedrooms.

Vertical Blinds

These window treatments are usually seen on tall windows and sliding doors. Vertical blinds can also be made of PVC and are highly decorative. As far as light blocking and privacy are concerned, they are a good choice.
