When you think of a window treatment, the vital part is its functionality and the mode of usage. Considering the exact purpose of treatment, it comes under the broad category of decoration, privacy, light control or meant for all. The type of window treatment depends on the size, design and shape of the window, the direction of natural light, the type of architecture and the mood you wish to create using the treatment. If you need to make it the focal point of the room, the window treatment should be accordingly selected. The style may be contemporary, classical, casual or formal. Next part is the choice of material for your windows, as there are plenty of options available. You can go for wood, bamboo, faux wood, cotton, natural grasses, linen, denim or silk. A special and interesting texture can be created by mixing up the materials.
Another popular type of window treatment in interior design, sheers allow light through during the day and are perfect for use in the spring, summer and early fall. They are light weight and attractive to look at. In the late fall and winter, they can be swapped out with heavier curtains or drapery.
The cornice is a padded box that is covered in fabric and if desired, a type of trim. The edges can be shaped, such as scalloped, rounded or straight. These are often favored because they can help to conceal any existing hardware that is used to hang other window treatments, thus providing a more seamless overall look in a room.
