Let the Light In: Choosing the Right Window Coverings for Your Home
First, when choosing from among attractive but functional window fashions, you’ll have to consider the purpose of the room. Your living room is a place for social interaction and entertaining guests, while your bedroom is a place for relaxation. This can affect the type of window covering you may want to use. For example, sheer drapes are a favorite choice for the more public spaces of your house. For the bedroom and bathroom, where privacy is needed, heavier curtains are the better choice as they help ensure that no one can see through from the outside. Second, think of what your window’s main purpose is. A window can serve a lot of functions in the room, but the main one will influence how you should decorate it. For example, a window can provide light for the room during daytime and present a fine view of the outdoors.
