HR: Window treatments
Let’s talk window treatments.
How necessary are they? Really?
I completely forgot about window treatments.

I have these 3 huge 47″w x 70-1/2″h windows in my livingroom that really open up the space and is one of the main reasons why I fell in love with this townhouse. Yeah well… Those suckers are gonna cost a lot to dress. Personally I’m thinking that naked windows is a new trend I’m gonna start. It’s not like I walk around nude in my house so if someone wants to be a peeping tom, they are just gonna see me chilling in my favorite fat pants (elastic rules!) and tank top. I may or may not be wearing a bra though. The girls like to be free from restriction at home ya know?
Unfortunately my husband isn’t feeling my avante garde window treatment-less concept. He has concerns about TV glare. Lord help me.
Fine husband. Fine.
In my search for
cheap inexpensive window treatments I realize there are a lot of options out there. Curtains, panels, roman shades, vertical blinds, horizontal blinds, wood, vinyl, faux wood, valance, cornice etc. Seriously what’s a cornice? That sounds like a sore you get on your foot, no? Eewww! Now I usually like choices but all these choices are making my head spin. Help?
1. How did you dress up your windows? why?
2. Where did you purchase it?
3. What material is easier to clean?
4. What material lasts longer?
5. What window treatment is pet safe/friendly? (I’m hoping to adopt a doggy at some point. *smile*)
Any advice (esp budget friendly) appreciated.
