Selecting window treatments for your home

Woven Woods by Alta Window Fashions

Window treatments are an important aspect of any home’s decor. They not only add style and character to a room, but also serve practical functions such as providing privacy and controlling light. With so many options to choose from, it can be overwhelming to decide on the best window treatments for your home.


One popular option is curtains or drapes. These can add a touch of elegance and warmth to a room, and come in a variety of fabrics and colors to match any decor. Sheer curtains allow natural light to filter through while still providing some privacy, while heavier fabrics offer more light control and insulation.


Blinds are another popular choice, and come in a range of materials including wood, plastic, and metal. Wood blinds offer a classic and traditional look, while plastic and metal blinds are more affordable and easy to maintain. Blinds also come in a variety of colors and styles, from sleek and modern to rustic and homey.

Shutters are a more permanent window treatment option, and are available in wood, composite, and vinyl materials. Shutters offer excellent light control and insulation, and add a touch of sophistication to any room. They are also easy to clean and maintain.

Valances or Cornices

Another option for windows is the use of valances or cornices. These are decorative top treatments that can add a finishing touch to any window. Valances can be made of a variety of fabrics and can be used alone or paired with blinds, shades, or curtains.

Roller Shades

Roller shades can add value to a home by providing versatility and functionality, fitting in with any decor style and being adjustable to control the amount of light in a room. They can also provide privacy and insulation, and their energy-efficient properties can help reduce a home’s energy costs, making them attractive to potential buyers.

What is right for you?

When it comes to choosing the right window treatment for your home, it’s important to consider your personal style as well as the function you need the treatment to serve. Do you need to block out light for a bedroom? Do you want to add some privacy to a living room window? Answering these questions can help narrow down your options and make the decision-making process easier.

It’s also important to consider the size and shape of your windows. Tall, narrow windows may be better suited for blinds or shutters, while shorter, wider windows may be better suited for curtains or valances. The direction your windows face can also be a factor in determining the best treatment, as windows that face the sun may require more light control.

In conclusion, window treatments serve both functional and decorative purposes in any home. From curtains and drapes to blinds, shutters, and valances, there are many options to choose from. It’s important to consider your personal style and the function you need the treatment to serve, as well as the size and shape of your windows. With a little research and some professional guidance, you can find the perfect window treatment for your home.
