Design Dilmma: Window Treatments
I have to admit I’ve been spending way too much time lately looking at window treatments.
The new house will have lots of windows, and treatments are on top of the to-do list.
My number one concern is a cohesive look when looking at the house from the outside. Ideally I would like every window to have moldings added (the windows will be totally bare without any casing), bamboo blinds as well as classic drapery panels…
In reality, with budget and time being factors I need to start with something simpler. I need your help and your experiences of what you liked best…
Classic Panels: Easy, breezy and beautiful or annoying to open and close and ‘fix’ each time?
Roman Blinds: All you need?
Plantation Shutters: Expensive, but worth it?
Bamboo Blinds: Inexpensive, but do they really keep the light out?
Can you tell I’ve given myself a headache? I’m trying to steer clear of the classic 2″ blind dust trap, but they are so affordable, easy and unoffensive to the eye. Maybe I should just start with these? Insights and thoughts please!
