Using Window Treatments to Set A Mood

If you have a dimming switch on a light, you can control how bright or dull the light is, setting the mood for that particular room. What happens when you don’t have a dimmer on every light switch in every room?  It’s still possible to set a mood in a room without a dimmer switch!  You can control the mood with custom window treatments.

Window treatments can cool a room.

The summer months bring sun and heat, especially during certain times of the day.  If you have custom contemporary curtains made, they will have a high-quality liner to keep out the heat and harsh sun, controlling the temperature of the room and making it more comfortable for your family and guests. window-treatments-1Control your privacy.

If you have neighbors close by or if you live on a busy street, you might value your privacy a little more. During the day, you can probably leave your curtains or other window treatments open. At night, on the other hand, you’ll want to close your curtains fully to optimize your privacy.

 Give Your Room Style.

There are many styles of contemporary curtains, for example, our Trio style drape, which incorporates 3 complementary fabrics can bring a distinctive look to your room.  Find your favorite style from the collection on our website at:  www.thecontemporarycurtain.com.window-treatments-2Color is Everything.

BLUE FOR SERENITY

Shades of blue are known for possessing calming properties and creating a cool, reflective space.  Blue environments are even said to lower blood pressure and stress levels.  Using blue in a home office encourages less anxiety, while it promotes rest and relaxation for a good night’s sleep in your bedroom.window-treatments-3RED FOR PASSION

Red is seen as a power color and should be used wisely in the home.  While red can create of feeling of energy, it can also spark passion, romance, and warmth in a room.  Custom drapes in a deep red bring romance into the bedroom and also can bring zest and energy into an otherwise colorless living room.

WHITE FOR CLARITY

If you’re looking for a clean slate or new, fresh energy in your home, decorating with classic shades of white is the way to go.  White opens up the room for a lighter, airier feel.  Classic white blinds and shades or luxurious creamy drapes function beautifully in any room you hope to bring a fresh feel and lightness to.window-treatments-4NATURAL BROWNS FOR WELCOMING WARMTH

Shades of beige and brown, while considered neutral colors, can evoke a variety of different moods including warmth, sophistication, and classic design.  For a warm and inviting home, use these warm neutrals along with warm colors such as reds and oranges.

If you prefer to balance the warmth of these neutrals, incorporate cooler colors such as blue or green with them.  Natural wood blinds, woven wood shades, or rich chocolate honeycomb shades can be used to create a warm, welcoming, cozy feeling in spaces made for gathering and relaxing.
