If you live in a flat with a window facing the other flat you will need to have blinds that will completely block out any view from the outside. However, if you are in a country house with the windows facing the open vastness of the countryside you may want to have a window treatment that will permit a lot of vision from inside as well as there will be very few instances of someone looking in from outside.
Drapery and curtains are two entirely different sets of window treatments in interior design; though the terms are often used interchangeably. Drapery refers to pleated panels that hang from decorative rods or poles. This type of window treatment is moveable and can be opened during the day and closed in the evening.
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.
