Window treatments transform your attractive but otherwise ordinary windows into focal points that can define a room. Choosing the right treatment though is not as simple as picking what sticks. In fact, certain rooms benefit from specific window treatments better than others.
Renewal by Andersen® of Atlanta, your local window replacement contractor, shares the best window treatments for each room.
The living room is the part of your home where you have a certain freedom to experiment since it’s often the largest living space in the room. As such, you can freely pick between blinds and curtains. Drapes are another popular choice since they don’t crowd the space as much due to the living room’s larger size.
The key here is the color palette. Whatever treatment you decide, it should be complement or at least stay neutral to the tone of the rest of your living room. If you have a mostly gray or white living area, the treatments for your replacement windows should seamlessly blend with their color palette.
What you’re looking for in this space is the ideal blend of privacy and light. The bedroom needs to stay comfy and clutter free, so treatments with heavy fabrics like drapes should not be part of your list. Instead, choose ‘lighter’ treatments such as blinds and soft curtains. The ever-popular ceiling-mounted window treatment is an excellent choice because it provides ample lighting without compromising privacy.
Kitchens and Bathrooms
Both these areas tend to become humid and damp so traditional treatments are not popular here. Instead of looking for what to install, consider the kind of glass your windows have instead. The glass needs to have insulating properties so that they don’t disperse heat to the other parts of the home, while still clear enough to let in natural light.
At Renewal by Andersen of Atlanta, we install windows made from Fibrex® – a composite material that has the insulating properties of natural wood bolstered by strength and durability of vinyl. These low-maintenance windows come with High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass that further increases their energy efficiency and thermal resistance.
The result is a window that’s durable, energy-efficient, and can withstand the hot and damp conditions of your kitchen and bathroom.
