Window treatments tie in with the light issue mentioned in an earlier article. Using the correct window treatment for a room will emphasize the light in the room, draw attention to or detract from the shape and size of the windows themselves.
Long drapes to the floor create a more formal ambiance whereas short curtains suggest informal decor. Aside from the usefulness of drapery to block light or create privacy, when showing the home their purpose is to frame a view and/or complement the room’s decor.
Depending on the fabric and design, curtains can range in price significantly but finding the right material at a great price can help create the “look” that may sell your home.
