Adding window treatments to your home’s interior can really pull together the look and feel you want for your space. Here are some treatments you may want to consider adding into your home.

Curtains

These window treatments are very common to find in an apartment, especially a bedroom. Curtains come in a variety of colors, styles and patterns – and are typically lighter in weight than other window treatments. They come in panels of two, usually.

Drapes

Drapes are made of a heavy fabric that helps keep the sunlight out. They are typically considered to be more formal than curtains, but can be found in many rooms of the home, including the bedroom, living room and dining room.

Sheers

If you like to let natural light in, then you might want to consider adding sheers in your home. They are lightweight curtains that add a romance-vibe to any room. Sheers are a suitable choice for smaller spaces, since they give an airy feel and appear to make the room look larger.

Valences

These window treatments are shorter than the rest – but boy do they add some pizzazz to the room! Valences drape around the top of the window frame, and are often found in kitchens to let in the light while adding drama to the room.
