Best Tips on Choosing the Right Window Treatments

While today’s replacement windows are beautiful on their own, adding window treatments to them is always a good idea. After all, having these coverings helps boost your interior’s aesthetic appeal. They turn a modest space in your home into something stylish.

Best Tips on Choosing the Right Window Treatments

Renewal by Andersen® of Long Island, your local window contractor, provides some tips on how you can enhance your room with the right window treatments.

Set Your Priorities Straight

Your choice of window treatments should be based on what you really need for your home’s interior. When privacy is a priority, for instance, be sure to select coverings that obscure the view of your indoors from the outside. When both daylighting and privacy are needed, consider sheer curtains or translucent blinds. They both conceal views yet still let sunlight enter your room.

Pursue heavy curtains instead of light ones if you want to block natural light. These would be helpful if you want to get some much-needed sleep during the daytime. Be sure to consult with our windows installation pros for options that won’t damage your new units.

Show Creativity With Your Color Choice

Your chosen color palette for your window treatments must reflect your personal taste as well as the existing interior color scheme. You may purchase a new set of curtains or drapes with your preferred color base. However, if you are feeling a bit more creative, you can custom-dye fabrics, reuse old bed sheets or add customized print on your plain-looking coverings.

One thing to consider here is that your color base should come with small accents. That way, you make your wall coverings less monotonous when matched with your interior. For example, choose curtain tie backs with hues that create instant attention. With window treatments, you get the right balance of function and visual appeal.

"I was very impressed with Renewal by Andersen. They showed up in time and we received several follow up phone calls as the installation was being done as well as the sales representative stopping by to check in on the installation. The delivery/ installer was very professional. I would highly recommend Renewal By Andersen."
