Functionality is one of the most important considerations when deciding how to dress your windows as choosing the right treatments will allow you to control the natural light entering the room, providing you with privacy when needed and delivering an opportunity to really personalise your home with your own signature style.

When staring out it’s important to consider how your chosen window treatments will relate to the existing  architecture and to the other features within the room; for example if there is a deep window sill or a radiator positioned below the window full length curtains may not be your best option.

In this instance you could consider using roman blinds as they can be custom made to perfectly fit the window and can be lined to block out the light.  By adding a fabric covered pelmet above the window, some trimmings and some luxurious fabric finishes you could quickly find that roman blinds exceed your expectations.

Lining your curtains adds heft, which provides a protective barrier against chilly winter drafts and helps fabric fall more luxuriously, this extra layer will also help to shield your chosen fabric from sun damage allowing your curtains to last longer.  The addition of interlining will enhance these qualities even further giving your curtains a feeling a quality and opulence.

Your choice of fabric and finishes may be guided by the style and period of your home with the existing furniture helping to give a reassuring nod in the right direction.  In most instances shiny reflective finishes are used to create more contemporary and glamorous styles with soft, matt finishes with texture and depth being used to create more warmth and a traditionally cosy feel.
