Using Window Treatments to Add Visual Warmth to Your Room

Design Advice by Maryann Guinta
Leading Design Consultant Maryann Guinta gives advice about adding visual warmth to your home

There are many reasons for adding window treatments to one's home- privacy, insulation and light 
control are a popular few.  But what about adding that finishing touch that aesthetically changes the 
entire room, elevating it to something truly special? Or adding visual warmth? Hold on, first, just what is visual warmth? Well, adding visual warmth is when you make your room feel more comfortable, warm and yes...even cozy. And in choosing and adding the right window treatments, you can answer all of these needs. 
As a Design Consultant, I am asked from time to time, "How can I visually warm up my space?"  This is one of my favorite questions, and don’t worry, it’s much simpler than you may think!  Adding visual warmth can be accomplished by swapping out those tired old white roller shades and replacing them with the richness of stained wood blinds or shutters. A nice wood tone that has either a reddish or burnished undertone imparts a warm, inviting look, enhancing a room’s feel and ambiance. Or if you’re looking for an alternative to shutters, but still looking for the durability and timeless feel of wood, then perhaps Woven wood shades should be on your list? Woven wood shades are crafted from renewable bamboo, wood, reeds, and grasses, and are a great way to make things a bit cozier while also offering privacy and light control. Plus, as an added bonus, Woven wood shades are both eco-friendly AND beautiful!
If you really want to amp it up, how about adding a beautiful pleated lined drapery? Choose warm toned colors such as reds, browns, oranges and yellows. Even some grays have a warm brown undertone and work well. Gorgeous designer fabrics, custom tailored by our first-class workroom, always add another dimension to the beauty and coziness of a room. Drapery can mute noise levels and add a nice softness with their fullness too, and are available in an array of designer fabrics and textures. We also carry an impressive selection of Roman shade styles that can add many designer-like qualities. Roman shades add softness with their fabrics and lining, while being super easy to control. In addition, they offer insulation, privacy, light control and immense aesthetic beauty to any room. 
Maybe you don’t have anything on your windows and are having a hard time deciding.  As you may already know, a bare window can definitely cry for some heat. And this doesn't mean that you have to completely cover the window.  Sometimes it’s nice to add a small touch with a top treatment just to give a little boost to the decor.  Remember, the smallest touches can sometimes make the biggest difference!
And just as we bundle up when we go outside in the snow or on a blustery cold day, you can always 
layer up your window coverings too. Why not have a blind or shade and stationary drapery panels? Or if space constraints don't allow, swap out the panels for a top treatment. The possibilities are endless. An experienced design consultant can guide you in the right direction.
So if you are feeling the need to change things up, look toward turning up the heat. It may just be 
the best choice to add the right amount of WOW!  As an experienced Design Consultant, I know first-hand that setting out to measure and design new window treatments on your own can be frustrating and time consuming.
