A room with a view becomes all the more artful with the perfect window treatment. Better Homes and Gardens Window Treatment Decorating Ideas brims with information, both pretty and practical, for every room in the house. You'll be inspired by the lavish images throughout the book—250 color photographs in all—whether your style tends to be casual or traditional, eclectic or more defined. You'll even learn how to camouflage not-so-beautiful windows. Of equal weight, however, is function. This comprehensive resource also covers important considerations such as privacy, light control, airflow, and traffic patterns. Individual chapters focus on types of treatments: draperies and curtains; shades, shutters, and blinds; top treatments; and combinations. A primer on fabric selection, window styles, and installation offers further guidance on planning and executing window treatments appropriate to various types of architecture.
