Deciding on the Right Window Treatments for Your Home

Window treatments vary greatly in both their style and function. A careful look at your needs and desires in each room will help you choose the right window treatments in Denver. At Designer Fabrics of Denver, we think the following tips could be useful for helping you choose the right window coverings for your home.

Deciding on the Right Window Treatments for Your Home

Semisheer

This is the best option for rooms that need light more than they need privacy, such as the living room or family room. Semisheer window treatments offer subtle privacy but let enough natural light in to brighten the room. You can customize the amount of light and privacy you have with your semisheer window treatments by choosing the thickness of the fabric.

Cellular and Roller Shades

Bathrooms on the first floor need privacy. A cellular shade, also known as a top-down/bottom-up shade, will provide the privacy you need to walk around the bathroom while still letting plenty of light in. Roller shades can be installed easily, and offer a nice balance of light and privacy for the bathroom. You can even hard-wire a roller shade if it's hard to reach, which allows you to adjust it using a remote.

Draperies

A ceiling-to-floor drapery is ideal for first-floor bedrooms, because it allows plenty of natural light in without sacrificing privacy. The drapery rod or track can be installed on the wall or the ceiling, based on what is best for the room.

Shutters and Blackout Curtains

Solid shutters are great at blocking out light, which makes them ideal for a guest room. This window treatment can be painted a bold color to add visual impact, or the same color as your walls if you want something more subdued.

Layered Treatments

There's no rule that says window treatments cannot be combined. Sometimes you need both blackout curtains and blackout shades for a TV room. In the bedroom many people choose to have both ceiling-to-floor sheer draperies and a thick roman shade so that the levels of light and privacy can be customized.
