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.

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.

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.

Decorating Ideas For Your Den In Omaha

shuttersThese decorating ideas for your den in Omaha should inspire the homeowner who is looking for a traditional family room that will keep relaxation and harmony at the forefront.  What makes a den hard to decorate is that the den is often just a small space set apart from the rest of the house.  It may be an enclosed room or it may be just a large walkthrough area.

custom vertical blinds

What is A Den

A den is a room in the home where adults can go to enjoy some privacy.  The Den is a room that means many different things to different people.  It has different meanings in different parts of the US too.  It may be a study or a place to read.  Some people may use the den area for watching TV or a thousand other activities.  What sets the den apart from a family room is that the den is often a place for adults to relax or get away for quiet work.  In some homes, children aren’t allowed in the den.  A den may also be where your office is but that’s not a hard and fast rule either.  What sets the den apart from a living room is that a living room is often arranged to entertain guests.  Whether it is a formal area or more relaxed, it is often larger than a den and designed for company.  In earlier years a parlor or formal living room was an area of the house people seldom went into unless guests were over.

Decorating Ideas For Your Den in Omaha

Depending on the size of the area you have to decorate, you may include large sectional seating or you may prefer comfortable chairs and ottomans.  A Den should be decorated in a style that is easy, laid back and not too busy.  The quiet room above is a good example of using neutral colors and a balanced design to create a calm relaxing space.  The pillows further accentuate the atmosphere.  Perfect for reading or watching TV.  The horizontal blinds are an easy window treatment because they come in a multitude of colors and are durable and easy to clean.

Decorating the Modern Den

The den above is another example of using natural organic colors.  These Solera® Soft shades allow you to open the windows from either the top or bottom.  The pillows and throws add a touch of color without overpowering the room.  When you consider decorating ideas for your den in Omaha, you may be guided by what you enjoy.  This should show up in the form of bookshelves if you like to read.  It may also include paintings and artwork that shows your personal taste and style.  You may decide decorating the modern den with your favorite collection allows you to enjoy your treasure more than if it were in a more formal part of the house.

Small Dens and Cozy Corners

Not everyone has the luxury of a bonus room or spare room to turn into a den.  You may only have a small corner to decorate.  Many times the area has corner windows or too many windows that make furniture placement harder than in a traditional rectangle room.  You’ll find even if you have just a small area you can add unusual furniture and tables to create a warm cozy spot to relax in.  You may not be able to retreat into a room by itself but you can retreat into a corner of your own.  Having a window near by to look out is an added plus.  The picture above shows how well our Designer Solar Shades work.  They reduce the glare and add enough privacy and light control without blocking your view.  Matching side panels are the perfect touch to this area.

If you need help with decorating ideas for your den in Omaha, Ambiance Window Coverings can provide you with the interior design skills you need to create the space you’re looking for.  We also have a variety of Hunter Douglas Window Fashions.  Custom window treatments are the perfect choice for covering den windows.

Interior Designer Secrets

When it comes to hanging window treatments, the height and width of your window treatments can make a big difference. You can create a feeling of higher windows or a taller ceiling by starting the window treatments at the ceiling. Likewise, you can create the illusion of fuller, wider windows by allowing your window treatments to hang further outside the window. You can add up to a foot on either side. Both these options allow you to make your windows either taller or wider.

window treatments

Creating a Beautiful Look

Each home is different when it comes to hanging window treatments. For the most part, hanging the window treatment brackets on the wall above the window works best. For rooms with 12 inches or more between the ceiling and top of the window, hanging your window treatments 4” to 6” inches above works well. This is also a good rule in homes with cathedral ceilings. If you have ornate trim or woodwork, you may want to consider a window treatment that will hang from the inside frame. Where to hang your window treatments depends on the window treatment you pick, how much wall space you have and if you want to cover your molding around your windows. There are a lot of factors involved in choosing the right window treatment length.

choosing the right length window treatments

Balancing Your Room Size and Windows

If you have a smaller room, consider hanging your window treatments from the ceiling. You can take full advantage of your windows this way too. If your room is already too big, hanging the window treatments at the ceiling may not be a good idea. If your room has windows that are uneven you can balance the room by hanging the window fashions at the same starting point throughout the room. Window Treatments that start at the ceiling will look better if they hang to the floor. If you are hanging your window treatments 4” to 6” above the window you only need to go a few inches below the window. Many of our window fashions like: shutters, blinds and shades are mounted inside the window frame or on the edge of the window. Adding a side treatment, cornice board or top treatment allows you to take advantage of creating the illusion of larger windows. It can also add a softer look that fits your décor.
