Do You Need Curtains for Your Windows?

Curtains can enhance your home’s style while providing privacy. However, curtains aren’t the right design choice for every home or even every room in your home.

Today, the windows experts of Andersen® of Austin discuss whether you should hang up curtains in your home.

Types of Treatment

Window treatments can be used for privacy, decor or both. Privacy curtains are useful in areas like the home office, bedrooms and bathrooms. Whether you have casement windows or another style, curtains can provide more privacy when you want it.

Contemporary Homes

In a contemporary home, designs lean more toward minimalism, and curtains may clash with that aesthetic. If you need curtains in your contemporary home, look for simple designs in light or neutral colors to complement the clean look of your home.

Modern Contemporary Homes

The modern contemporary design depends on shock value, bright bold colors and stark contrasts. Window treatments for your custom windows can help you achieve the look you want. 

Specific Uses

Bathrooms require privacy, but fabric curtains may not work well in this moisture-prone area of the house. Polyester curtains or shutters may be preferable. Alternatively, you could also forego curtains in favor of frosted glazing options.
