The Dos and Donts of Replacement Window Treatments

If you are looking for high-quality home window replacement services in Arizona, then you need to make sure that you take the time to get your treatment options right. Window treatments can dramatically increase the quality of your replacement windows. At the same time, you also need to select treatment options for your replacement vinyl windows that will truly make them stand out. There are a few key points that you should keep in mind.

Do Hang Your Curtains High and Wide

One of the first steps that you should keep in mind to make sure that you make your space look bigger and more luxurious is to hang your drapes above and to the side of the window frame. Ideally, the curtains should be hung at least a foot above the window frame. In some cases, your window frame might be too close to the ceiling. In this situation, simply hang the drapes from the top of the ceiling. After, reach your curtain rod out close to 6 inches from the window frame on each side. This will ensure that your drapes perfectly accent the windows themselves.

But Do Not Hang Drapes Directly Over the Window

On the other hand, never hang your curtains or drapes directly above the window frame. If you hang them above the window frame, they are going to stunt the window and let in less light. This can make the room feel significantly more crowded. Make sure that when the curtains are open they do not fall any more than two inches inside of the frame on each side.

Do Layer Your Window Treatments

The vast majority of windows that are designed by trained professionals are nearly always going to feature at least two separate window treatments. For example, you might notice matchstick shade framed by the drapes. You might also notice specialized shutters that have been topped with a unique valence. Designer window treatment layers make the window more functional, increasing insulation which will keep your utility bills lower. Furthermore, this makes your windows more stylish, creating windows that serve as the focal point of the room.

But Do Not Go Overboard

On the other hand, too much of a good thing can turn into a bad thing. Layered window treatments are no exception. If you place too much fabric on a window, not enough light will be allowed to enter the room. This can make this a steel small. Therefore, do not go overboard when it comes to layering window treatments.
