How to Add Beauty and Balance to Your Glass Windows

Large windows and doors add elegance and beauty to your architecture. But you need to make sure you use proper window treatments that balance light and privacy. Having long windows, an array of wide windows, or a sliding French door can add to the beauty of your home interiors. I live in Reno, and the pleasant weather and the picturesque landscape made us add large windows and doors to our home architecture. My husband is a windshield repair expert in Reno and owing to his expertise in everyday glass works, he was quite confident about choosing the right design and treatment for our windows. But, he soon realized that dressing a window and windshield repair are too different things, with the former required more ideation than the latter.

This meant I was in charge of window treatment and while I didn’t have it easy, I have come up with a few tips that will make this task a little easier for you.

Choose the right window treatment

The first step to add beauty and balance to your doors and windows is to choose the right treatment for them. Depending on the location of your windows or doors, you need to decide whether your treatment will suit the space and the setting. Following are some of the commonly used treatments; you can choose one of these to ornament your interiors:-

1. Valance

When opting for a valance, make sure you follow a cohesive style in the overall house. If you do not want to use the same valance in all places, try matching the color shades or the design so that they do not look out place. You can place valances on blinds, drapes or curtains. Plaid and stripes can make a nice country theme valance and exotic flowers and shell motifs can be a great add-on to tropical themed interiors.

2. Shades

For a sliding glass window you can consider using shades or blinds. Roller shades or blinds can be a perfect option for your kitchen, bedrooms and bathrooms. This will allow enough light and keep complete privacy. You can choose to operate these manually or use remote devices to control their function.

3. Curtains

Curtains have been the best traditional treatment for your windows. But many of the modern homes have added just a bit of style to suit our contemporary lifestyle. You can choose from a range of modern prints and designs available on the market.

4. Drapes

Drapes are the best way to cover your windows with beautiful fabric which will add a vintage look to your interiors. You can either go for a complete blackout drapery that allows very little light to get in or choose a sheer fabric that will allow soft light to seep in and balance your room texture.

The different variations of drapes include, puddling, pleated and gathered or hemmed up.

5. Shutters

My husband finally put his windshield replacement Reno expertise to good use, when he realized the windows needed to be replaced before shutters could be added. So, we first got this problem sorted out and then got started with choosing the right shutters for our windows.

Shutters block the light completely. Some slide open and close on a track similar to that of the door or window. And some are hinged to the ceiling swing that open and shut. Some can rotate open and close to let you control the view and light.

6. Colors and Shades

Choosing the right color and shade for your window treatment is the most important part of your home interior treatment. You can use colors that contrast your wall colors. This will immediately make your room look lively and vibrant. But remember you need to harmonize the rest of the colors according to the high contrast scheme, like the furniture or wall fixture and other ornaments.

You can choose to play with patterns to add life to boring plain walls but again watch your wall color or shade. Covering the windows with soft neutral shades can give a uniform look with a casual elegance to the room.
Choosing the drapes and curtains in a shade close to the color of the wall can both divide and blend the windows. This will continue the harmony and not distract from other elements in the room.

7. Fabrics

Fabric is an essential part of your window treatment. You need to know the purpose of the window or door before you choose an appropriate fabric for it. The simplest way to find out what works best is to think, about the space and purpose of that window. For example, we chose to work with a heavy fabric for our media room drapery; this helped us achieve a total movie theater experience with all that darkness and better acoustics as well.

Linen, silk, faux silk and velvet are best choices to use for window treatments since they tend to stay longer. If you have a sunny room a faux silk will stay longer than real silk. Use shimmer sheer fabrics if you want to add a soft balance to your rooms.

Be Creative

A perfect window treatment can do wonders to your home decor. You can use everyday materials in unexpected ways to make a huge impact on the look of your room. Whether you’re designing a window treatment for privacy or purely for decoration, consider using beads, tree branches, bold patterns and colors to decorate your windows. You may be amazed by what you can do!

Piped, pleated, puddled, or plain, any window treatment will add fluidity and softness to your window edges. They add privacy and control light. These will also help conceal flaws or emphasize the charm of your room. Make sure you remember to choose the right fabric, pattern and texture for your window treatments.
