It sounds like an easy enough question, but it’s worth talking about. In simplest terms, window treatments cover the inside of your windows. The terms window treatments, window coverings, window fashions, and window dressings mean pretty much the same thing. Sometimes, window coverings can also refer to exterior coverings such as exterior shutters and awnings.
Types of Window Treatments?
Within the broad category of window treatments are specific window treatment types. These include blinds, shutters, shades, sheers, shadings, and drapery. Each of these window treatment types have unique style and functionality characteristics.
Light and Privacy Control
Each window treatment option controls light and privacy differently. Blinds, for example, offer flexibility in the amount of light blocked and the privacy offered by simply opening and closing the slats. Honeycomb shades, on the other hand, offer privacy while allowing light in.
The right window treatments not only complement your decor, but can even be a visual focus or key component of a room. You may have an eye for interior design and know exactly what you’re looking for. Or, you may need some help choosing the type, style, color, and material of your window treatments. Here at Dave Coleman’s Windows to the World, we’ll help you find the perfect window treatment for your room decor, functional needs, and budget.
Window treatments are a barrier between the inside of your home and outside temperatures. Even with the best windows, you’ll still lose air. Window treatments provide a level of insulation that can make a difference in your heating and cooling expenses.
