Window Treatments 101: A Blog About the Various Kinds of Window Treatments.


Window treatments are one of the most important things in any home. You see them immediately when you walk into a home. They can create the perfect balance between light and privacy, or give your space a ton of personality. If you're looking for some inspiration for your next window treatment project, look no further! In this post we'll go over different types of window treatments that you might want to consider when making over your house. Rest easy, we have you covered here at SHAADS!

Sun damage: it's not just for skin anymore

Sunlight can be damaging to your skin, furniture and floors. Sunlight is a major source of vitamin D production in the body, but it can also lead to wrinkles and age spots. The same goes for sunlight on your furniture: if you have an expensive sofa or chair that's been out in the sun too long (or even just hasn't been cleaned), chances are you'll see some discoloration from those blemishes over time.

Sunlight can also cause burn damage on fabrics like rugs or carpets—especially if they're exposed directly from windows or skylights which let in direct rays of heat coming from outside!

Curtains and drapes

Curtains and drapes are the most common window treatments. They can be used to block light, or they can add color and style to a room.

Curtains are typically more formal than drapes, but they can also be used as decorative accessories. They're made from fabric that is often lighter-weight than that used in drapes so they don't compete with the light coming through a window. If you have curtains on your windows, make sure they're at least halfway closed before you start adding any other types of shades or treatments; otherwise it'll look like there's something wrong with them—and nobody wants their home to look like this!


Shades are a very common window treatment. There are three main types of shades:

● Inside mounted (either manual or motorized)

● Outside mounted (usually with a cord). These can be either motorized, manual or remote controlled.

● Made of fabric or wood.

Shade fabrics come in a wide variety of colors and styles, including plain fabrics like cotton canvas or vinyl; patterned fabrics such as damask and brocade; solid colors such as white; neutral tones like off-white; rich colors like reds and greens; muted tones like blues and browns; floral patterns that look great with any decor theme you choose for your home!


Blinds are one of the most versatile window treatments available. They can be used for both privacy and light control, and they can be used in any room of your home. Blinds come in many different materials and styles, including wood, vinyl, silk and even fabric!

Blinds are also available either motorized or manually operated—the choice depends on what kind of feel you want when they're closed or open. You may want to consider whether your blinds will stay locked during storms if they're not motorized; otherwise they'll flutter around while you're sleeping on hot summer nights!

Curtain hardware and accessories

Curtain hardware and accessories are a great way to add a little extra flare to your window treatments. Hooks, rings, cords, swags and tails can be used as decoration or to help tie back drape lengthwise across your windows. Tiebacks come in a variety of styles that vary by shape and size; some are made out of metal while others are made out of wood. Drape hardware like tiebacks are also sometimes used alongside drapery rods (also known as curtain rails) for added support when hanging heavy fabrics from ceilings or walls.
