Today, I’m not curious about what you think, or what you would do. I want to know what you’ve done…what you currently have.
Anyone who knows me knows that I’m big on window treatments. I tell all of my clients that their rooms simply won’t look finished without window treatments. You can spend thousands of dollars on new furniture, the perfect accessories, beautiful area rugs, gorgeous chandeliers, but if you leave your windows undressed, 99.9% of the time, your room will look unfinished.
|Could you imagine John & Alice’s bedroom without window treatments? It’s would be so blah!!|
In fact, I’m so passionate about window treatments that it was the topic of my very first blog post, way back on February 20, 2007, when I first started this blog. Yes, I’ve been on my “window treatment” soapbox for that long now!!
|Or how about my mom’s house without window treatments? It just wouldn’t look finished!!|
|Her living room window would just be a big, blank rectangle without those window treatments!!|
And still, I realize just how unimportant window treatments seem to be to the average homeowner. Yes, I’m one of those people who looks through your Facebook photos, where you’re showing your Aunt Sally and Uncle Bob at your house for Thanksgiving, and I’m looking right past Aunt Sally and Uncle Bob to see what your house looks like. Sorry…that’s just what I do.
And what do I see when I do that? I see that most people don’t give any thought to their windows. More times than not, I see a window with either 1″ aluminum blinds or 2″ white wood (or faux wood) blinds on it, and not a stitch of fabric in sight.
So I want to know about you. Right now, in the main living areas of your home, what is on your windows? Don’t worry, you will be anonymous (unless you choose to leave a comment below), and I’m not going to embarass anyone. After all, my own living room window and bedroom window don’t have fabric on them…YET. This truly is just an “out of curiosity” thing for me. Of course, if you’re in the “don’t plan on adding window treatments” group, I’d LOVE to hear your thoughts on why you don’t want window treatments!!!
Addicted 2 Decorating is where I share my DIY and decorating journey as I remodel and decorate the 1948 fixer upper that my husband, Matt, and I bought in 2013. Matt has M.S. and is unable to do physical work, so I do the majority of the work on the house by myself. You can learn more about me here.
