  1. 1. WINDOW TREATMENT
  2. 2. WINDOW TREATMENT Window treatments are used to control the degree to which windows perform their various functions. They have great design potential as sources of beauty and character too. Window treatments can be classified as Stiff Window Treatments and Soft Window Treatments

  5. 5. BLINDS A window blind is a type of window covering which is made with slats of fabric, wood, plastic or metal that adjust by rotating from an open position to a closed position by allowing slats to overlap.
  6. 6. BLINDS
  7. 7. ROLLER BLINDS These let in plenty of light when drawn up, yet give complete privacy when unrolled and let down. Roller blinds are made of thick fabrics used in conjunction with rollers.
  8. 8. ROLLER BLINDS
  9. 9. ROMAN BLINDS These are made of Fabrics attached to cords. When the cords are pulled, the blinds rise up in accordion pleats to form pelmet. They are heavier and warmer than roller blinds.
  10. 10. ROMAN BLINDS
  11. 11. VENETIAN BLINDS They are made of parallel slats of wood, metal or plastic aligned horizontally or vertically. They are popular for their almost complete control of air, light and view. They are usually low in price and some custom- designed blinds come in different colours and patterns.
  12. 12. VENETIAN BLINDS
  13. 13. VERTICAL LOUVRE BLINDS These are most effective on large floor-to- ceiling window. They work on the same principal as the venetian blinds, except that they close across the window rather than down. The slats are wider than the venetian type but less opaque.
  14. 14. VERTICAL LOUVRE BLINDS
  15. 15. PINOLEUM BLINDS These inexpensive covering for large windows. They are made of fine strips of wood held together by cotton, and let a pleasant, soft light filter through. They may be mounted on a spring-operated roller or moved up and down by cords.
  16. 16. PINOLEUM BLINDS
  17. 17. BALASTORE BLINDS These are inexpensive blinds made of strong paper fibre. It is accordion-pleated to act like a folding blind (similar to the venetian blinds). Balastores are perforated with small holes to let the light through without glare.
  18. 18. BALASTORE BLINDS
  19. 19. PLEATEX BLINDS These are made from stronger paper than balastores and have smaller pleats. The paper gives privacy, but let’s sunlight through, which is filtered and tinted the colour of the paper. The four most common colours are orange, green, blue, and parchment (natural)
  20. 20. PLEATEX BLINDS
  21. 21. AUSTRIAN BLINDS These are ruched fabrics (trimmed with gathers). They may be used partially raised, and when fully raised, they form a decorative pelmet. They are used in banquet halls and large lobbies for a sumptuous effect.
  22. 22. AUSTRIAN BLINDS
  23. 23. SHADES A window blind does not have slats but comprises a single piece of material that can be rolled to control the degree of the various functions of the window. These blinds are machine-operated as well as hand operated.
  24. 24. SHADES
  25. 25. BAMBOO AND WOVEN WOOD SHADES Slatted shades have the advantage in that they let through some light and air, and allow outwards-only visibility in the day time. They block the inward view at the same time, depending on the tightness of the weave or the size of the slats.
  26. 26. BAMBOO AND WOVEN WOOD SHADES
  27. 27. FABRIC ROLLER SHADES These are inexpensive and can be flexibly adjusted to cover as much of windows as required at a particular time. They can be translucent, letting in some light or completely opaque. These shades are available in many colours, textures, and patterns, although neutral white or off-white, fairly smooth fabrics are the standard. Decals or stencilled patterns on roller shades give interesting look on to the windows when the light filters through the designs.

  30. 30. SHUTTER A window shutter is a solid and stable window covering usually consisting of a frame of vertical stiles and horizontal rails (top, center and bottom).

  37. 37. CURTAIN A curtain is a piece of cloth intended to block or obscure lights, or drafts, or water in the case of a shower curtain
  38. 38. CURTAINS Curtains often contribute more to the atmosphere of the room than any other item of furnishing. Plain, heavy curtains falling down to the floor can be used to create a formal setting. Short curtains made of light, brightly patterned fabrics are used to create an informal, relaxed atmosphere. Apart from creating the desired atmosphere, curtains give flexible control over privacy, heat, light, and to some extent noise.
  39. 39. CURTAINS • Curtains fulfil several important functions: • They give flexible control over privacy, heat and light. • They soak up the noise in proportions to the area they cover, the thickness of the fabric, and the depths of the fold. • The can add colour and pattern to the decor. • They cover bareness and furnish a room even without furniture • They can change the apparent size of the room or conceal architectural flaws
  40. 40. GLASS CURTAIN These are also called sheer or net curtains and are usually made of cotton or polyester. They are appealing in the light pastel shades.

  50. 50. DRAW CURTAINS These are usually made of translucent or opaque fabrics and are mounted on traverse rods. In earlier days, they were used between glass curtains and draperies, but these days they are more often used alone.
  51. 51. DRAW CURTAINS
  52. 52. TIE-BACKS Either one panel can be tied back to one side or both the panels can be tied back to the two sides. They are often tied back to the window frame. A pair of curtain looped back makes a window seem much narrower than a single curtain tied back. Such curtains should preferably be tied back just below or above the mid-section of the window. Usually the higher the tie-back, the taller the window appears.
  53. 53. TIE-BACKS
  54. 54. CRISS-CROSS CURTAINS/ PRISCILLAS These curtains are a variation of the tie-back type. Both the curtain panels overlap each other at the top along the entire width of the window and then criss-cross each other when they are tied back. Criss-cross curtains generally make a window seem wider. They also assure an impression of fullness.

  64. 64. FOLD BACKS These are made up of sets of two-double sided shades hung across the entire width of the window on double curtain rods. They are then folded back to expose the contrasting under-panels and each panel is tied back.

  70. 70. PELMETS AND CORNICES Cornices are box-like shapes used at the top horizontal portion of the drapery treatment to hide the poles and other hardware. They are generally 4 to 7 inches deep. The width of a cornice should be little less than one- eighth of the overall length of the floor length drapery. They should be made of wood, plastic, or mirrored glass. Wooden cornices are the most frequently used and a plain wooden board with an interesting moulding at the top and bottom is always good taste. Wooden cornices may be finished in their natural colour, painted in some other colour, or covered with cloth, cork or leather. Sometimes the coverings are edged in brass nails.

  75. 75. VALANCE A window valance is a form of window treatment that covers the uppermost part of the window and can be hung alone or paired with window blinds or curtains. These are made up of fabrics that can be pleated, scalloped (having an edge or border marked with semicircles) or ruffled. They should never exceed one-sixth of the window’s height and should be about 8-12 inches in depth.
  76. 76. VALANCES
  77. 77. CURTAIN RODS Finding the right hardware is essential to the success of the window treatment. Curtain rods are generally used for shirred curtains of simple cafes. Most rods are now in adjustable lengths.
