California Shutters

California shutters are a beautiful window treatment that will add a designer look and feel to any room you add them to! They are a versatile option, and come in many styles and materials including vinyl, wood, and faux-wood (composite). California shutters are the perfect choice for almost every type of style – they fit well into modern bedrooms, rustic kitchens, and traditional living spaces. 

Full-Length Drapes

What gives off a more luxurious look and feel than full-length, flowing drapes over a large window? Custom-made drapes easily give off a designer look and feel to any room – especially bedrooms and living spaces. They can be made from thousands of different patterns and materials, so you can match them perfectly to the rest of your home’s decor. 

Drapes can also be made with liners that help block out the sun, helping to further insulate your home and even reduce your energy bills! Like most of the other window treatments on this list, they also do not have any strings or cords, making them a safe and practical option for households with small children.

Combining blinds with curtains or drapes is a great way to get a designer feel in your home. You will often see this window treatment combination is areas of the home that could use more light-blocking, such as bedrooms and living rooms. 

When pairing curtains with blinds, there are a few ‘do’s and don’ts’ you should follow, such as choosing your blinds first (before you pick out your curtains) and avoiding pairing print on print. You can learn more about ensuring you get the best match from Curtain World

It can be difficult to properly pair, especially if you don’t have a lot of design experience. If that’s the case, you may want to work with window treatment professionals – they can help ensure you get the absolute best fit and will expertly match your curtains with your drapes so everything looks well designed. 

Automated Window Treatments

Automated window treatments provide a luxury that other options just can’t give you – you can control your window treatments from anywhere in your home (and with smart home technology, you can even control them from outside of your home!) Many motorized systems also allow you to set your window treatments on a timer, so you never have to worry about drawing your blinds at the perfect time – they’ll do it for you! Check out the quick video below to learn a bit more about choosing the best motorized window treatments.

Most automated window treatments will come in a shade or blind style. However, you can even put your curtains or drapes on an automated system. Motorized and automated window treatments are a perfect first step if you plan to add smart technology to your home. Your guests will certainly think you have the perfect, up-to-date designer treatments!

wooden window treatments

Whether you choose wooden shutters or blinds, there’s no doubt that real wood brings a designer vibe to your home. Wood shutters are a great choice for large windows and even doorways, such as sliding doors to your patio and yard. Wooden blinds work perfectly in dining rooms, living rooms, and smaller bedroom windows.

For rooms such as kitchens and bathrooms, where there may be excess moisture, wooden window treatments do not always hold up as well, as moisture can cause damage and warping. However, composite (faux-wood) and vinyl shutters or blinds can replicate the look and even the feel of wood, but hold up better in moist environments.
