Are You Choosing A New Treatment For The Windows In Your Maser Bedroom?

Posted on

In the past, have you had curtains for the windows in your master bedroom? While that was probably a very attractive look, maybe the curtains are now worn or outdated. Have you decided to go with a different look for your window treatment? If that's the case, do you already know exactly the look you want?

Maybe you are looking for ideas that will add interest and privacy to your bedroom. If so, keep reading for some ideas that might inspire you.

Go With Shutters - Besides being attractive and affordable, accordion shutters are super practical.

One idea is to choose blackout accordion shutters that provide total light blockage. The honeycomb fabric will have mylar lining that won't just block out the rays of the sun; it will also block out heat. Your utility bill will more than likely be lower after the installation of your blackout shutters. Another perk about selecting accordion shutters is that there won't be any bothersome dangling cords.

Maybe you aren't interested in total blackout shutters. In that case, select sturdy fabric accordion shutters. They'll be very easy to install and to maintain. All you will need to do to clean your fabric accordion shutters is to go over them with a handheld vacuum cleaner. 

Do you have to replace the French doors in your master bedroom? If so, consider buying the type of French doors that have mini shutters built right into two panes of glass. The mechanism is fascinating. With a slight turn, the shutters will open and close. Then with another finger action, you can totally raise and lower the shutters. This type of door might not be cheap, but the beauty and ease of having French doors in your room will be worth the money you spend on them. 

Don't forget about classic plantation shutters. They are a tried-and-true choice that will be beautiful in your bedroom. You can choose wooden ones, or you can select vinyl ones that look just like wood.  Choose wide slats or thin ones, depending on your preference.

No matter the type of shutters you buy for your master bedroom, the color you select will help to establish the mood you want. For instance, maybe you want an elegant look. If so, go with white or light grey for the color of the shutters. For a more rustic or casual feeling, espresso chocolate brown would be a great choice.
