Before and After Window Treatments: 5 Fabulous Projects!

In the world of interiors, there’s nothing quite like seeing transformations come together. We’re sharing some amazing projects of before and after window treatments, so you can see just how different life can be. From light control to superior style, adding shades, blinds, shutters or drapery to your windows could be the final step you need to create the home of your dreams.


Make the Perfect Spot Even Better

There’s no denying, this sitting area has the best view. Quaint and cozy, it would be a great spot to enjoy coffee in the morning, and afternoon cup of tea, or an evening glass of wine. But, what’s with the glare??? It has the potential to keep away from this perfect spot. And, when the direct rays shine, the heat will be absolutely exhausting. Not to mention–take a look at the view. You’d think having bare windows would allow you to enjoy the view. But, the glare just washes everything out. By controlling the amount of light and the direction it’s shining, you’ll be able to sit and relax as long as you want–whenever you want.

Fall in Love with Your Large Windows

The honeymoon with large windows is a short one. They are dreamy and beautiful–the view, the natural light, the peaceful nature. And then, you try living with them. The glare, the heat, the constant light…don’t you want to just bring it down a notch? The beauty of sheer shades, or any fabric with a view-through opacity, is that you only make the space better. You can always

Preserve the Design

If you still have the idea in your mind that blinds are for your grandmother, you might be pleasantly surprised to see just how amazing they can look. Today’s window coverings offer the most contemporary materials and finishes, in textures and colors that will bring an upscale look to your home. No matter your style preference, we have window treatment options to coordinate with the other design elements in your home. Coverings can bring dimension and softness, or as pictured here, they can offer a sleek, low profile style while providing incredible benefits for your daily life.

Customize the Atmosphere

The benefits of light control, privacy, energy efficiency and convenience all boil down to one thing: Window treatments invite a customized atmosphere. It’s all about comfort and personalized preferences:

  • Brightness or direction of incoming light
  • The view in or out
  • Temperature control
  • The amount of adjustments and how they’re made

The features you choose will deliver the atmosphere you prefer. The office below has the opportunity to block light and heat with the fabric of roman shades. But, with the top down feature, natural light enters when necessary. Sky views and mood-boosting light enhance the vibe, while the bottom portion of the window is covered for reduced glare on screens and less direct light in the eyes of individuals sitting and working in the space. With the added feature of smart shades, the atmosphere is transformed in an instant with a tap on a device or a simple, “Alexa, Close the Shades.”

Protect Your Investments

One area that homeowners don’t always consider about entering light is the damage that can be done by UV rays. Those beautiful hardwoods? The outline of area rugs can show up just a few years in–if you keep your windows bare. So, while the other benefits we’ve mentioned can really spruce up the look and feel of your home, window treatments can also protect your interiors. Fading wall paint and artwork, along with flooring and upholstery, are just a few of the design elements that need a layer of UV protection.
