If you’ve recently installed or replaced the windows in your Winnipeg home, then your next task is to accessorize with the right window treatments. AWD Specialists of windows and doors, can assist with picking out the right window treatments to enhance your room and windows in Winnipeg.
The type of window treatment you choose is going to have a significant impact on how the room looks, on how comfortable it is to spend time in, and how functional it is. The right window treatment can even save you money on heating and cooling costs. There are a variety of window treatments available for your Winnipeg windows and doors.
Roller and solar shades are a fantastic window treatment option for living spaces. A living room or a family room with big windows can benefit greatly from beautiful roller and solar shades which can be easily opened for a lot of sunlight, but which can also be closed for privacy while still allowing light to filter though.
Other rooms in your home, such as the bathrooms, have a much more stringent requirement for privacy. Roller shades and cellular shades, which can be pulled down to cover a window from top to bottom will allow plenty of light through but don’t allow you to be seen.
Made of heavier fabrics than curtains, draperies are often used to accessorize bedroom windows because they offer a higher level of privacy while evoking a softer and more intimate feel. Though they still allow light through, they filter out more light than curtains and so are much better suited for rooms that are slept in.
Some people prefer to completely block light from coming through the windows and doors of their Winnipeg bedrooms when sleeping, and choose blackout curtains instead. Shutters, which come in a variety of materials to match your taste and style, are also a good option for encouraging sleep and relaxation while maximizing bedroom privacy.
Window treatments aren’t valuable solely for their design elements, but for their energy-saving benefits as well. Winnipeg home windows are responsible for the loss of much a home’s heating and cooling energy. The right treatments will help you cool less in the summer and heat less in the winter.
Draperies, curtains, shutters, and shades can all be closed to prevent the exchange of hot or cold air between your home and the outside. You can also opt for darker, warmer fabrics in the winter time to capture the sun’s energy and lighter, cooler fabrics in the summer time to deflect it away.
At AWD Specialists, we have a large selection of window treatments for all of your needs. We’ll find the right solution to accommodate all of your preferences when it comes to design, privacy, light, and improving the energy-efficiency of your home.
