An appealing and dramatic change featuring window treatments today is using alternative materials to cover your windows!Curtains or draperies are no longer the only way to add drama to a window; and no longer is the obligatory treatment as it relates to décor for your windows.

Alternative choices include shutters, shades, screens & panels which are all made from a variety of materials that range from wood and natural fibers (sea grass & bamboo) to plastics and metal. Of course, what you choose will depend on your interior style and the effect you want to create.

Wood Shutters – one of the most widely used window coverings – can be stripped, stained or painted and can cover a multitude of various shaped windows. Shutters can fit into a traditional or contemporary interior alike. The beauty of shutters is they are multi-faceted – they can be a good choice to block out light where total darkness is required or they can filter light in interesting ways creating plays of light and shadows in your room.

Woven Woods – also known as bamboo shades or natural fiber shades – are made of   jute, rattan, sea grass, or bamboo fibers. Used on their own they bring an earthy & natural feel to a room. When layered with drapes woven woods create a contrasting texture which adds sophistication to any room and is an interesting way of dealing with windows!

Roller Shades – Cutting edge roller screens are the most versatile way of treating window coverings in that they offer limitless light control, privacy, and energy efficient thermal & solar control. When we think of motorizing a window covering, shades are the first product that comes to mind and they also offer several eco-friendly and child safety options. Roller Shades can be made from metal or plastic and offer an enormous variety of décor options on the material itself. Roller shades work well in modern settings or on a window that you want to protect your inside décor yet have options to provide a grand view of the outdoors.

New technology and the development of new materials have brought about practical and exciting options in the way of window treatments. You’d be surprised how reasonable the cost of window treatments is today and what an exciting change they can make in your home!
