    Uncovering the Latest Trends in Window Treatments

    Last updated 5 months ago

    Window treatments soften the lines of a window while dressing it up to enhance your home’s interior. There are many types of window treatments available, ranging from short valences to long-paneled curtains and shades. Wallside Windows invites you to take a look below and discover the latest trends in window treatments to inspire your home décor.

    Organic Materials
    The use of organic and eco-friendly materials in window treatments is on the rise. Bamboo is a particularly popular option, whether in the form of wooden blinds or a fabric shade. Other popular woods include birch and maple, which feature beautiful grain patterns and give any room a warm glow when used as blinds or shades. Thinly-woven organic shades allow light to enter and afford an outdoor view without compromising your privacy.

    Luxury Fabrics
    Luxurious fabrics such as silk, damask, velvet, and suede are ideal for decorating windows in a home that features traditional, vintage, or eclectic style. These window treatments are often dressed up further with crystals, lace, beading, tassels, and cords. Many homes use these fabrics in bold colors and textures to draw attention to windows or the view beyond. Grosgrain ribbon and velvet detailing are popular ways to accessorize window treatments and can also be used to stylishly hide the route holes in stringed blinds. 

    Long Panels
    Long panels can be used to create either a traditional or modern window treatment. When allowed to fall naturally to the ground, thin panels highlight the sleek lines of a contemporary room. Gathered panels create a more classical, elegant feel, especially when paired with thick cording and tassels. Silk is one of the most popular choices for these types of window treatments, which are often used to decorate bay windows.

    What Kind of Window Treatments Work for Bay and Bow Windows?

    Last updated 5 months ago

    Bay and bow windows add depth and beauty to any room. However, you can increase the appeal of your bay or bow window with appropriate dressings that accent its shape. To determine which window treatment will work with your bay or bow windows, first consider the location of the window. Bay and bow windows that look out on a side yard or high-fenced backyard do not require the same amount of privacy as a window that faces the front yard. There is also the question of how you use your bay or bow window. For example, window seat valances don’t work as well on bay and bow windows that are used for storage.

    Last updated 5 months ago

    In addition to improving your home’s energy efficiency, replacement windows from Detroit’s Wallside Windows will also add beauty inside and out. However, it is the outside beauty that could really translate into extra value, especially if you are thinking about selling your home in the near future.

Because choosing exterior window trim can be tricky, here are a few tips from the window experts at Wallside Windows.

    Complement or Contrast
    For starters, decide whether you want the window trim to complement or contrast your home’s exterior color. Use a color wheel to help you decide on a color that will help you accomplish your intended design goal.

    Uniform Color
    Exterior window frames usually look best painted in the principal body color. In other words, use the same color for each window trim around your home. Not only will this give your home a more uniform look, but it will naturally draw the eye your beautiful new replacement windows. Experts recommend painting all vertical and horizontal trim elements, including exterior window trim, door frames, and cornices in the main trim color.

    Window Accessories
    If your new replacement windows will have sashes or shutters, make sure that they are the darkest part of your selected color scheme. This method will help your windows seem to recede into the façade, which will give your home a uniform yet understated elegance.
