The manner in which you treat the windows in your home determines to a great extent the attractiveness of your home. It is one of the most important decorative features in the home. The window treatment can be the means of tieing the room together with :color, texture, and design.Windows in your homes are there to give light and ventilation. These two points are the first to consider when decorating windows. You will decide how much emphasis the window is to receive. With various treatments you can provide privacy, hide unattractive views, regulate light and ventilation, correct poorly proportioned windows, or make them the most important decorative feature-the center of interest of the room. Whatever the treatment, remember, that good window treatment will be restful, will harmonize with the room, and lend distinction to the furnishings.
