Using Light in Your Room

Today, lighting is one of the most changed elements of design we have, and we need to learn “How to Use It.” You can control light with the addition of window treatments. The materials and opacities you select will provide different effects, for example:

  • Blinds with louvers like Heritance® Hardwood Shutters will allow you to tilt the light up or down
  • A semi-opaque fabric in a Duette® Honeycomb Shade will soften the light
  • The natural fibers used in Provenance® Woven Textures will filter light gently

At Window Products serving Fairfield County and surrounding areas, we’ll be happy to discuss lighting elements and how your window treatment choices can impact them. [Read more…]
