Stylish Shades – When Looks Really Do Matter

Posted in: Shades


Let’s first stress the point that a homeowner should not choose their window treatments based upon looks alone. There are numerous deciding factors that play a role, when it comes to selecting just the right types of window dressing. However, that doesn’t mean that appearance is out of the equation altogether.

For some homeowners, looks are the top priority, anyway. That being said, when visual aesthetics do matter, especially when they matter the most, you still need some guidance and advice about picking the right ones. The window shades that you choose should be the same ones that you are able to live with, and love, for years to come.

Quality should always matter, when it comes to the details that go into your Dayton home. This includes the window treatments, especially since they will impact both the interior design visuals and the exterior curb appeal. Learn a little bit more about how to make the right choice and set yourself up for long term success with your window covering choices.

The Art of Picking Just the Right Window Shades

Window treatments in general tend to get lumped together. Then try to tell someone there is a difference between even different styles of shades, and they will need some convincing. Here are some points to ponder when it comes to picking window shades to complete the look of your home:

Go faux! Love the look of wood but not the cost? You can still afford to go with the look of wood throughout your entire home, but at a fraction of the expense if you go with faux wood. While this will not offer the same rate of return for increasing your property value, it will save you money upfront.

Fabric is the new favorite. Fabric shades enable you to still get soft, diffused light into your home, while keeping direct sunlight out. This also helps you still retain a certain level of your privacy. This option can still offer much of the same level of energy-efficiency, as well. The benefit to heightened energy-efficiency is that it will reduce your monthly energy costs as well as help to make your home more Eco-friendly.

Go big and go home. A popular style trend for window shades is to go oversized. This means that there is just the right amount of excess window treatment on each side of the window, as opposed to neatly fitting within the parameters of the window frame. This helps reduce side glare and create a super modern look.

Roller shades have come a long way over the years. In fact, so much so that they have become a commonly requested option for those homeowners who want to go stylish. Gone are the days of boring old one tone, neutral hues. Bold colors and patterns are the new thing, as well as even using text for decoration. Still easy to use but more durable than ever before, this is a cost-effective but fun way to create a uniform but not utilitarian look throughout your home.
