The term has been evolved as a decorative element, but is often used to describe various coverings like sheers, curtains, blinds, cornices, shutters and valances. For both houses and business firms, blinds are commonly used for window treatments. Now wide varieties of blinds are available like the paper blinds, mini blinds, slat blinds and verticals. The blinds made of wood are a special choice for modern homes. The wooden slat blinds and woven wood blinds are perfect for any stylish interiors. In extreme weather conditions, shutters are the most widely opted treatment for ventilation and insulation. These shutters are made of faux wood and keep the unwanted glare away to give maximum comfort.
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.
Windows have always had that ability to become a focal point of many home interiors whether directly or indirectly, because of their function to radiate light and create warmth and transparency. It's important not to limit these portals of imagination to something that must be "covered"- curtains and window treatments should allow the window to interact with the room besides simply performing a function.
