For many years now, the trend in home design has been toward “open concept” living—with larger spaces that encompass several “rooms” but without walls. These larger spaces can be great for flow in a home as well as for line of sight and aesthetics; however, it can be tough to decorate these rooms because of their vastness. Part of decorating is finding the right window treatments, and that’s where Bretz Interiors here in Lakewood comes in. We’ll help you determine what’s best for your situation, whether you’re treating one window or all the windows in your home. Read on for some ideas for your large room!
Many open rooms have vaulted ceilings, which can make a space feel too vast. Using dark fabrics on window treatments will alter the room’s lighting in a room to create a cozier environment. You might also want to add some privacy or even more room-darkening (especially if you watch TV or use a computer in the space); consider adding a liner to the back of the treatment to create that darker zone. For great fabric options, be sure to check out the Hunter Douglas Design Studio™.
Many larger rooms also have very large windows, which bring in lots of natural light. If this is a feature you want to complement, you might want to use warm colors for your window treatments. Look at materials that are beige, brown, or gray—also consider natural wood (like wood shutters or woven wood blinds) to enhance your natural light.
Help Save on Energy Bills
Large windows not only bring in lots of light (which brings with it lots of heat); they also have vast expanses of glass through which indoor air can escape and outdoor air can enter. Honeycomb shades like Duette® Honeycomb Shades can help insulate the window, providing protection from that excessive heat from the sun and helping keep the indoor air temperature the way you want it. These shades are designed with honeycomb construction, which traps the air in its pockets to help with insulation. Plus, with the Vertiglide™ mounting system, the honeycomb fabric can be flipped for vertical orientation, giving you even more flexibility in covering your windows, even if you have a mix of types.
