{picking the perfect window treatments}

You’ve picked out the perfect paint color. You’ve selected a fabulous combination of furniture that doesn’t necessarily match, but goes together effortlessly, and you’ve finally found the bold statement piece your room needs in a luxurious area rug. Yet your space is still lacking one finishing touch – window treatments.

There are so many options out there when it comes to window treatments, which is why they can be an overwhelming purchase to make. But, with just a little background knowledge you’ll know exactly what to look for.

The first thing you will want to consider is safety. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, there are 120 reported fatalities and 113 injuries caused by corded window coverings since 1999. LiteRise shades are a great option if you have kids or pets in your home. A cordless system eliminates the risk of a child getting tangled in a hanging cord. You can read more about safe window coverings in this blog post.

The Design Studio Roman shade also helps save energy through:

  • Insulation: Many fabrics in the Design Studio collection boast high R-Values, helping reduce energy consumption, save on heating and cooling costs and creating a more comfortable room setting.
  • Solar Heat Control: Design Studio Roman shades help reduce the amount of solar heat that enters a room. The lower the amount of solar heat in a room, the more protected it is from the sun’s heat in the summer.
  • Daylighting: Sheer fabrics in the Design Studio collection beautifully diffuse natural light while bringing it deeper into the room. By drawing natural light deeper into a room, Design Studio Roman shades can reduce electrical lighting energy needs.

I like the fact that the Design Studio Roman shades have the ability to add some personality to your space. With the extra wide fabrics, beautiful trimmings and the ability to select from liner options, it is completely customizable. Hunter Douglas has done a great job at selecting fabrics with textures, shimmer and pattern that is appealing for all styles.
