Woven wood roman shades

by Home Improvement Digest

Window treatments are an important part of every room, and since there are windows of every thinkable size and type, they have opened up a wide array of decorating possibilities. The selection of window treatments seems to be an element of interior design that is really confusing to a lot of people! This is mainly because windows vary so much from house to house.

How to pick out Window Blinds

In addition to providing much needed privacy, strong window blinds can also complete the design plan of the room. Especially in small spaces where privacy may be a concern, blinds may likely be the best way to keep your private life private.

Furthermore, the blinds you install may have special light blocking capabilities, allowing rooms like bedrooms to remain dark during daylight hours, no matter how strongly the sun shines.

Good Questions: Curtain Help for Our Living Room?

 By Apartment Therapy

We have been slowly working on updating our living room, and now we are at a point where we are very happy with the wall color, the floor and the furniture. However, we can't for the life of us choose new curtains. Any suggestions?

For your first time, take it easy and go white. You have enough dark furniture and A LOT of putty color on the walls, so brighten it up with nice, simple white or slightly off-white cotton or linen curtains that go down to the floor.

These days, the skylight's the limit

 By Stacy Downs

Skylights get a bad rap, and sometimes it's deserved.  After all, installing a skylight means cutting a hole in a roof, and poorly installed skylights may leak. But when a skylight is done right, it can be a mood-lifting thing of beauty.  "You're able to capture light in a totally different fashion beyond vertical windows," said Kansas City, Mo., architect Susan Richards Johnson.
