Benefits of Window Treatments
Window treatments are often seen as a piece of home design that add texture and style alone. However, window treatments do more than bring character to your home design. Window treatments increase energy efficiency, provide light and privacy control, and keep your floors from being exposed to the harmful effects of the sun.
Windows are the primary source of warm and cool air loss in homes. When adding a window treatment, you can insulate the window to ensure the hot air stays out and the cool air stays in. In the winter, you can ensure the warm air stays in your home and doesn’t escape through the windows. Some window treatments are more energy efficient than others, but any new window treatment can make at least a small difference in the efficiency of your home when added. When it comes to light and privacy control, it is true that window fashions allow you to choose when you want them most. For example, if you get home from a long day, it’s likely you are going to want to relax in a dim-lit room. If you don’t have window treatments, it is impossible to achieve this while the sun sets. With window treatments, close them or lower them to get the desired amount of light in your room. Privacy offers the same benefits, allowing you to close or open them whenever you choose. Lastly, window treatments protect your floors from fading and wearing from the sun. While it may not seem like a bad thing, the beam of the sun on your floors day after day can have an adverse effect. Window treatments protect the floors when they are lowered to keep the sun out.
Types of Window Treatments
Today, window treatments in all kinds of fabrics and patterns exist in hard and soft treatments. Hard window treatments are made of metal, wood, or plastic, such as blinds. Hard treatments are ideal for filtering light but not diffusing it. Soft window treatments are characterized as being made from fabric and are perfect for extreme darkness and privacy. Soft treatments include cellular, roman, and honeycomb shades.
