Highlands NC Homes, Curtains & Shades Frame Windows
Curtains and shades frame windows and add design flare to Highland NC homes. Whether simple or ornate, window treatments can change the look and feel of any room. Understanding how to best compliment the style and design of a home and its rooms is important. While some homeowners have a natural eye for design, others require the help of a professional. An experienced Highlands NC REALTOR can help recommend local designers and window treatment experts to help you complete the design of your home.
Windows are coveted
Windows are a critical component of every Highlands NC home. In addition to letting in light, windows embrace the stunning views offered by our mountain setting. As such, how they are highlighted in a home is important. Nature and light are what is important to most homeowners and it is important how they are framed. More often than not it is important to let the focus be on the window and its view and not the window treatment.
Room dictates window treatment
Every room has different needs. A bedroom, for example, requires window treatments where a living room, kitchen, or dining room may not. Additionally, many people like having blackout shades or curtains in a bedroom to ensure a good night’s sleep. A bathroom is typically a room that requires window treatments as well. A shade is easy to pull down and offers privacy. Ultimately, window treatments serve as both a design element and a privacy element.
There are so many choices when it comes to window treatments, Draperies can be simple, with the material in solids or stripes. Or, draperies can be ornate. Similarly, sheer curtains can have a little oomph from a fabric valance. Of course, there are myriad other choices as well, from roman or roller shades to wood shutters and tinted windows. Taking a look online at sites like Houzz and Pinterest can open up a world of options and help people decide upon their own style.
