Renovating Window Treatments

Motorized Window Treatments

Window treatments are an essential piece of any interior décor. If you’re renovating, one of the most important aspects you should be considering is your window treatments. Window treatments can be anything from Roman shades to honeycomb shades to motorized roller shades. Most window treatments can serve both the aesthetic function you’re looking for as well as solar control.

Depending on the window(s) you’re working with and the “feel” you’re going for, there are endless possibilities. If you’re looking for function as well as aesthetic, there are also a number of options:


Draperies come in so many fabrics, it’s easy to customize for your home. If you’re looking for blackout draperies, it’s possible to purchase draperies with a blackout liner. Most draperies offer a decorative look and can provide solar and heat control.

Folding Shades

Folding shades are both decorative and versatile. They are a classic window treatment option and can add a warm feeling to any décor. Some examples of folding shades include Roman shades and honeycomb shades (accordion-style pleated shades). Folding shades are no exception to the variety of fabric and pleat choices, so they can meet your style and function needs.

Roller Shades

Roller shades have become more popular in modern and contemporary style homes because of the sleek, clean and minimal look they bring. Roller shades control the sun and heat while minimizing the bulky hardware other window treatments include. Roller shades can be customized to include a blackout or privacy layer and can also be motorized. Manufacturers of roller shades have started to offer “green” fabrics as well, giving you the option of using LEED certified fabrics.

Again, it all comes down to the style and function you’re looking for. When renovating a home, consider window treatments to be just as important as your furniture. They are not only complementary but offer a great feel for any room.
