Hanging window treatments is one of the many home decorating tasks that we tend to care less about. Decorating these fixtures, however, can be every bit as stunning as the entirety of a certain room in your home—perhaps even more. Knowing the basics can go a long way in giving your home’s interior a boost in terms of aesthetics.


Today, Renewal by Andersen® of Portland, your local window replacement specialists, discusses things you should consider when choosing a window treatment for each room.

Living Room

This area of the home is where most of the home decorating happen. Given that window treatments are often an important investment, you need to choose one that can last through multiple updates. Drapes and Roman shades of neutral colors offer a timeless look that can complement a variety of color palettes you might bring to your living room.


The right window treatments for your bedroom should be one that takes privacy and light filtering into account. Window replacement pros recommend installing a double rod to layer two different window treatments. On the outer layer is a set of heavier curtains that not only blocks light but also makes sure there are no prying eyes. For the inner layer, choose drapery that lets a lot of sunlight when the heavier curtains are pulled away.


Select bathroom window treatments that can withstand the room’s humidity and resist mildew growth. Just like in the bedroom, they should also provide enough privacy. Honeycomb shades are one of the best options because they don’t compromise privacy and can allow ample natural light inside your bathroom. They’re also soft and light that they’re hardly noticeable on your window.
