Sharing our lives with other people brings joy and fulfillment. When we welcome others into our homes, we want them to feel comfortable, safe and content. How we design our spaces can determine how visitors feel when they first enter a house. Lighter yellows and browns as well as wood tones can feel warm and comforting, so integrating these into your entertaining spaces can make your guests feel at ease. One way to add warm tones to a space is by using wood around your windows. Richmond Decorating has a variety of window treatment options to help make your home a more welcoming space.
You might associate blinds with traditional neutral-toned metal materials, but wood blinds from Hunter Douglas are an easy way to add warmth to your home while allowing for light filtration. Built with genuine hardwood slats, Parkland® blinds complement any room with a rich, traditional appearance. They are available in a variety of finishes, so you can mix and match to fit other wood accents within your home. You can also select from three different slat sizes. Choose the smaller slat size for more of a filtered appearance or pick the larger slat size for increased spacing and more light between each slat.
For the traditional wooden look with the comfort of a durable material, Richmond Decorating also offers Everwood® Alternative Wood Blinds from Hunter Douglas. These blinds are made with a sturdy wood alternative that will stand the test of time. You can choose from a variety of realistic TruGrain® finishes, so your window treatments will create warmth in your entertaining space without fading, warping, yellowing or bowing.
For a seamless appearance without the slats that blinds require, consider Provenance® Woven Wood Shades. This produce is made from natural grasses, woods, bamboo and reeds, creating a natural, unique design feature for your home. Provenance® Shades are available in three different styles and an array of fabrics. You can also choose to have them installed with a liner in your choice of opacity.
Since the comfort of your guests is of utmost importance, you can also customize your wooden window treatments with PowerView® Motorization. This wireless operating system lets you control your shades with a remote or from a mobile device. You can program your shades to operate on a schedule, minimizing glare when the sun streams directly through your windows and maximizing light when the sun’s angle is now longer a concern. You can also provide easy access for your guests to conveniently and subtly control the window coverings as needed. Plus, with no cords hanging loose, your home is safer for children and pets.
