Window treatments are an aspect of the interior space that every designer must address when developing their concept. Whether the window is the focal point of a room or an element that adds to the overall aesthetic, windows are an important part of the design that sometimes gets overshadowed by other elements.
When considering window treatments, there are a number of things to consider: location of the window in the room, size of the window, direction the window is facing, amount of light coming through, furniture near the window, fixtures on the wall around the window, colors used in the room, and the list goes on.
But one thing in the realm of window treatments that has been tried and true (though it has been challenged) is sheers. The finely woven fabric that lets a nice amount of light through without sacrificing privacy. Some may disregard sheers as a simple piece that isn’t necessary or doesn’t require much thought. But when done correctly and considered part of the design, sheers can add a beautifully elegant touch to the room that boosts perceived value.
Why not just use blackouts?
