Today, Renewal by Andersen® of Portland, your local window replacement specialists, discusses things you should consider when choosing a window treatment for each room.
The living room is where you spend much of your leisure time and also entertain guests. Many homeowners tend to redesign their living rooms more often than other areas of the house. For this reason, it’s a good idea to pick a neutral design that will work even if you switch up the other decor in the room. Drapes and Roman shades of neutral colors offer a timeless look that can complement a variety of color palettes you might use in your living room.
In the bedroom, you need window treatments that give you total privacy and also block out sunlight. Window replacement pros recommend installing a double rod to layer two different window treatments. On the outer layer you can install a set of heavier curtains that block light and provide privacy. For the inner layer, choose drapery that lets in sunlight while still giving some privacy when you open the heavier curtains.
Select bathroom window treatments that can withstand high humidity levels and resist mildew growth. Just like in the bedroom, they should also provide privacy. Honeycomb shades are one of the best options because they don’t compromise privacy and can allow ample natural light inside your bathroom.
