Dressing Up Your Windows

One of the important elements of home interior design is the way you dress up your windows. In our case, our living room and dining room windows play a big part in the design of our house. We have big French windows for both rooms. Since our home is facing the east, we wake up to rays and light of the morning sun. It's great actually and energy-saving. However, towards mid-morning, the direct light that hits our windows can make the temperature hot inside the house. Thus, we just had to put on good curtains or blinds to deflect the heat.

Actually, I have been looking at Bali Blinds for our living room and dining room windows. I heard that they can best for control the light and, in effect, also the heat that enters the room. These will be perfect for the purpose.

For the bedroom, which is at the back of the house, facing the opposite side or towards the direction of the sunset, the heat can be terribly bad during mid-afternoons. Although there are several trees at our backyard, I think putting up nice Hunter Douglas Blinds can be a good alternative to protect the room from the scouring heat. We can also buy some Bali Cellular Shades for the more homey look.

What do you think?
