How To Create Curb Appeal With Window Coverings

contemporary window treatmentsNothing makes a home look more shabby than having messy looking window treatments hanging in the windows.  From the viewpoint of curb appeal, how your window treatment looks from the outside is equally as important as how they look from the inside.  We want to show you how to enjoy your windows from the outside and how to create curb appeal with window coverings.

how to create curb appeal with window treatmentsMatching Window Treatments

Many people plan the window treatments in their home based on the outside look.  They decide to decorate their home with matching window treatments throughout the house.  I’ve seem homes where hardwood shutters are used in every room.  This gives a uniform look to the outside of the house.  Inside the shutters were adorned with soft treatments in some of the rooms to add some elegance and sophistication in areas where it added some style and warmth to the decor.  Windows in the kids bedrooms and baths were done in a matching faux wood because it was less expensive and more durable.  Many of Hunter Douglas Window fashions are designed to fit a variety of windows sizes so you can easily use the same window treatment everywhere.

Roman Shades

Roman Shades With Curb Appeal

Many of our window treatments by Hunter Douglas come with liners or are designed to create a good image from the outside.  Some store bought Roman shades aren’t designed with a good backing so you see bunches of fabric that doesn’t look very good.  It can really give your home a messy appearance from the outside of your home.  We work hard to make sure our window treatments not only fit perfectly and look great inside but we also take time to make sure the outside look is equally flattering.  After all, you may have more people noticing your house from the outside then seeing it from the inside.

Custom Drapery

When you design your home with custom drapery they are often made with good linings.  This not only creates a good view from the outside of your house but it also adds insulation to your windows.  Lining on a custom drapery also adds better shape to your window treatment and create a better overall look.  Custom drapery are designed with your style in mind and made to order.

Rethinking Vertical Blinds and Shades

rethinking vertical blinds and shadesVertical Blinds are perfect option for the home décor for many reasons. They come in a variety of colors and materials that make them versatile and easy to use. While some windows may not look quite right in a vertical blind or shade, you would be surprised how they really look great on even tall narrow windows. If you’re thinking about decorating your home with new window treatments, consider how vertical blinds or shades will enhance the overall look of your room. Rethinking Vertical Blinds and Shades will allow you to consider how beautiful they look and how they can make your room appear taller.

What’s Your Decorating Goal?

Think about what you want your room to look like when you’re finished. Thinking about the finished effect will enable you to choose the right style of vertical blind or shade. For a modern, sleek style choose a vinyl or metallic blind. Our Hunter Douglas Skyline® Gliding window panels offer a unique way to cover your wide windows with large 17” panels. If you are looking for a more casual option you might like our Crosswinds® wood blinds or our Cadence® Soft verticals. If you really want to add an elegant window treatment, consider our breathtaking Luminette® Privacy Sheers featuring a soft vane with attached sheer.

How Will The Room Be Used?

Decide what your privacy and light needs are in the room you’re decorating. If you have a sunroom, you may prefer a sheer to a blind so that you can take advantage of diffused light while still protecting your furnishings from UV rays. If you’re decorating a bedroom however, you may want something with darker fabric or closer vanes to block the sun when you’re taking an afternoon nap or trying to sleep in on Saturdays.  Consider the other furnishing in the room and how they will look with your new window treatments.  Will they compliment the look or detract from it?

What’s Your Color Scheme

Once you decide the overall style décor and how much light you need, you can start thinking about your color scheme. Rethinking vertical blinds and shades gives you a multitude of color options including metallic, stains and geometric shapes and patterns.

Vertical blinds and shades are available in a wide range of colors. You can choose a neutral or a bold, bright hue. Color plays a big role in the ambiance your room creates. Choose a light neutral or cream to create a clean, light atmosphere. If you want you’re blinds or shades to stand out, choose a brighter color or pattern to create a focal point. If your room is full of other colors and the focus isn’t your windows, choose a calmer color or pattern. Ambiance Window Coverings offers in-home consultations so you can play with fabric and material samples to visualize how your room will look before you purchase your vertical window treatments.

You can choose different blinds and shades for various windows in your room. If you are covering a sliding glass door with a vertical blind, you can add a horizontal blind to a smaller window in the same room or living space. Many of the fabrics we carry come in a variety of window treatments to fit any size or shape window.   Our Duette® Honeycomb shades and Vignette® Roman shades come with a Vertiglide™ option for larger, wider windows.

You can soften your vertical blinds with a soft sheer fabric placed above the window and draped on either side. This is an easy way to hide the window frame and soften the hard lines of the vertical blinds. We also work with soft window treatments and custom drapery to layer your window treatments for a unique look.

A Guide To Custom Drapes

custom drapery in Omaha

A guide to custom drapes will help familiarize you with the terms people frequently use when they are talking about plain and patterned drapery panels. If you are interested in designing custom drapery, you’ll find this article will help you with the ends and outs of working with your interior decorator.

A Guide To Custom Drapes

Working Vocabulary:

Pattern – This is a decorative design. Now that is a pretty broad definition. In window coverings there are a multitude of options. Do you want bold prints or a chevron, stripes or geometric shapes? Do you want to create a focal point with your custom drapery or just enhance the décor that is already stunning? The pattern you pick is often determined by what else you want to achieve in the room. For example, a vertical stripe can enhance small spaces or make the room look taller. A dramatic pattern is perfect for balancing a neutral décor. Whatever design you pick will determine how much fabric you need too.

Style: Flat, pleated, pinch-pleats Working with patterned fabric creates an unusual visual effect. Typically patterned fabrics are woven or printed with the design running horizontally and repeated along the length of the fabric. If the fabric lays flat or is stationary you get a different view than if you have pleats or parallel folds when you open the curtain. Tighter patterns are easier to match up. Your fabric may require being cut to get to the desired layout.

Standard Width – a standard drapery panel is approximately 48” wide when closed. As with many things there are industry standards that can dictate how you design your custom drape.

Finials– these are the decorative knobs or ends of your drapery rods. They can also be used individually to hold back the curtain and look similar to knobs on the wall.

Hanging Draperies

Ideally draperies are hung halfway between the window trim and the ceiling. This allows your windows to provide maximum natural lighting and also this makes your rooms appear bigger. You will find many draperies are hung from the ceiling to the floor and some puddle on the ground for an elegant touch. Our professional installers will be happy to install your custom drapery so that they capture the right look for your living space. We will also make sure you have the correct rods, hooks or finials to finish the look.

Can Window Treatments Really Save Energy?

honeycomb shadesCan window treatments really save energy? Winter is quickly approaching and you may be concerned about the cost of heating your home. According to Hunter Douglas, your windows have the potential to lose up to 50% of your heating and cooling energy. So the question remains, can window treatments really save energy?

window coverings

Department Of Energy Findings

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, window treatments can save up to 25% of heat loss in the winter and 45% of heat gain in the summer. It really depends on the type of window treatment and how they are installed.   Here are a few options:

custom drapery

Custom Drapery

You can create insulation at your windows with custom drapery. You should choose a medium color drapery and add a plastic barrier lining. This will keep your windows from creating heat loss in the winter and heat gain in the summer. You can also choose a light color backing for summer time. The light color will reflect the heat and a dark color for wintertime. The dark color will absorb heat. This will in effect help with the energy it takes to heat or cool your home and this will save you money on your utility bill. Custom drapery can be installed to hang to the floor or even pool on the floor. You can also add a valence or top treatment to start your custom drapery above the window. Adding Velcro to seal the drapery around the window will further help insulate your room.

Honeycomb Shades

Honeycomb shades are designed to be energy efficient. They come in a variety of styles with different cell sizes. You can also choose single, double and triple cellular construction. Honeycomb shades are versatile and easy to decorate with. They come in a multitude of colors and translucencies so you can enjoy filtered light if you desire. Allowing the natural light to replace artificial light will save energy too.

Can Window Treatments Really Save Energy?

Yes they can, it’s about keeping the heat out during summer and keeping the heat in during winter. If you want to save energy at your windows, here are a few tips:

  1. Use weather stripping and caulking to seal your windows.
  2. Open your window treatments on sunny winter days to take advantage of the suns heat. Close your window treatments at night to keep the heat inside.

How to Create a Fall Atmosphere

create a fall atmosphereCooler temperatures and glimpses of the holidays in clothing stores and shopping malls create a fall atmosphere that we like to welcome into our homes. Really, anytime there is a change in the weather is a great time to redecorate your home. Here are a few ideas to help you usher in the holidays and prepare your home for winter entertaining and cozy nights by the fire.

Stock Your Home With Fall Necessities

With cooler temperatures, you need to pack your cupboards with warm weather favorites like hot chocolate and warm soups. Don’t forget to pick up some extra wine and party snacks too. Maybe a pie for the freezer just incase unexpected guests pop in. Make sure you have enough firewood and logs to keep you warm this season. Extra blankets in the car, for you and your friends when you need them, are always a pleasant gesture.

Bring Out The Pillows and Blankets

Decorate you living room or family room with comfortable pillows in warm autumn colors. Be sure and include some interesting textures to create a warm look and ambiance. Sheep fur throws and soft furry blankets allow you to wrap up in warmth for immediate comfort and relaxation. Consider turning a part of your home into a reading area where you can sit in a comfortable chair and enjoy a good book or game on you smart phone. My recliner is set up next to my picture window so I can enjoy the beauty of winter from the warmth of my favorite chair.

Create A Fall Atmosphere With Warm Winter Bedding

Now that the temperatures are dipping down, you can include your warmer blankets on your bed. New bedding might just be the inspiration for a bedroom makeover. Maybe you’re not ready for new furniture but a new bedroom ensemble with new window treatments or custom drapery may be exactly what you need. You can save on your heating bill with energy efficient window treatments and extra blankets that allow you to turn the thermostat down.

Add Fall Cheer With Autumn Favorites

You can add a little fall fun to your decorating with colorful gourds and pumpkins, leaves, pinecones and small ornaments that remind you of fall. You can create a charming table with a few gourds down the center and a table runner of your favorite colors underneath.

Don’t forget to add a few fragrant pieces like cloves or cinnamon to create a fall atmosphere.

Add New Window Treatments

Whether you like to change your window treatments for the seasons or you’re just ready for a new look, new window treatments can add new life to your rooms and provide you with a warm feel that is elegant and tasteful. To create a fall look, you can replace your summer sheers with fuller material. Custom drapery that billows to the floor makes a nice fall statement. Wood shutters can also have a warm effect in the right situation. If you are interested in exploring your options, call Ambiance Window Coverings in Omaha and they can help you create the look you’ll love.
