What custom window treatments go where

With so many options, it may be hard to pick out exactly what kind of window treatments go where in your home. Between choosing what looks best and fits seamlessly into your decor, you should also consider what how much privacy you want for the room in question. 

No traditional room is complete without some opulent drapery. However, since you're probably not decorating a ballroom, it's okay to skip the tiers and stick with the simpler version. You may want to avoid using drapes in a kitchen or child's room, as the fabric can be difficult to clean. In a room with light spillage - dining rooms, bedrooms or living rooms - drapes can be cleaned using feather dusters, dry clothes or taken to the dry cleaners periodically. Match these elegant window treatments with Persian rugs, traditional-style couches and arm chairs and some soft lighting. They also provide enough coverage that they can be used in more private rooms. 

Wood blinds
Contemporary design calls for wood blinds, no question about it. The simplicity, and texture of this natural element are ideal for the kind of late 20th century room that is so popular today. This style of design heavily relies on neutral colors and earthy materials, making the wooden material very fitting. It also tends to feature a monochromatic palette, presenting the decorator with a particular need for texture. The way wood blinds contrast against light in clean lines creates a sort of texture, as opposed to other window treatments you may use. Contemporary design also uses slim silhouettes and unadorned materials, requirements that are easily fulfilled with wood blinds. They are easy to wipe down, and allow enough privacy to be used in any room of the house. 

Roller and roman shades are the perfect addition to any modern room. The simple outline of the window treatments complement the basic feel of this particular interior design style - and the level of privacy varies. Bamboo roller shades might work best in a kitchen, as they're easy to wipe down and don't block out as much light as other shades would. Conversely, blackout roller shades are perfect for a modern bedroom, especially one that belongs to a night owl. The soft but tidy lines of roman shades look minimalist but cozy - and would look amazing in a bedroom or living room.
