Selecting the right window treatments for your home can often be a matter of simple and practical common sense. The right window treatments are first and foremost affordable to your budget. Second, they will suit your taste. Third, they will suit the overall style of the room in which you will be using them. You should decide whether to use formal or casual window coverings in your home. Informal window treatments are often warmer and compliment mission style furniture quite nicely. More formal window treatments work wonderfully with Victorian styled furniture. The architecture of your home may also have a tremendous effect on the window treatments you choose. Tall windows are much better suited to long flowing swags, for instance, than short windows.
