We are accustomed to sunrise and sunset, but the amount of light entering our home determines the energy and vibe flowing into the house. Good lighting is essential to maintain a happy, peaceful home environment. Light affects the functioning of the house and determines the style and energy of the home. With custom window treatments, you can select the amount of light entering into every room of your house.
While determining custom blinds and window treatments, you should consider what function the room plays. Next, you need to consider what type of material you would like to add to the overall design. There are three types of window treatments:
- Hard Window Treatments consist of hard materials, including wood or vinyl. These include shades, blinds, and shutters.
- Soft Window Treatments: These include soft materials such as curtains, valances, roman shades, etc. arranged in different styles
- A combination of both is called layered window treatment.
You need to ask whether you want to keep light in or out, as this will determine the style and material you select for your window treatment.
