Every room requires different window coverings. The living room or the lounge windows must be both decorative and stimulating. Apart from the decorative curtains and valances, your windows can undergo a complete makeover by adding a huge ornate glass or a crystal shelf to the window. This would replace the simple and drab look with exquisiteness.
Blinds Vertical Blinds, Aluminium Venetians and Roller Blinds can all provide an effective window treatment solution at an affordable rate. Each of these options provide a different look and feel while assisting with privacy, temperature control and sun filtration. Often there may be a specific range or lower priced option that while lacking the colour range, functions or specific finish can still provide a viable alternative. It is important to note that while buying the entry level ranges may suit your budget they need to be suitable for the specific purpose and amount of use they may receive. It is important to talk about the limitations of such products with your window treatment expert. If you are working to a tight window treatment budget then wanting Cedar Venetians may not be plausible. There are however plenty of alternatives to choose from. The first would be Basswood blinds. Basswood is a fast growing but light and strong wood that is a great alternative for cedar. It enables you to have the look for a fraction of the price. Likewise there are man made alternatives that offer the wood look for a fraction of the price. As above it is important to ensure the use of the blind matches the specifications. This will help you avoid a costly mistake that will see you having to replace a blind within a much shorter space of time.
Draperies and curtain panels are usually made from fabric and can be designed with pleats, tab tops, rod pockets, etc. They can be hung from rings and/or drapery pins on curtain rods, medallions, traversing rods or other creative hanging systems. They can vary in style from modern to traditional, contemporary to eclectic depending of the fabric, color, pattern and style. They can be dressed up with valances, swags, cornices or scarves at the top of the treatment. Drapes and curtains can be functional and provide privacy or transparency or could be purely for aesthetics.
Thermal backed or Softblock fabrics offer an alternative from a traditional curtain fabric. Thermal or blaockout coated fabrics do not require a separate lining and softblock fabrics, while advisable to line can be used as a stand alone curtain without separate lining. This saves you money because the cost to make the curtain is lower and you are not required to pay for a separate lining. Thermal backed fabrics and softblocks will hang slightly different to a traditional lined curtain so it would be a great idea to check if your local window treatments expert has a sample of each hanging in their showroom for you to have a look at.
