Spring has sprung! That means spring cleaning and spring refreshing. Why not freshen up your window coverings? As the flowers bloom and the days grow longer, here are what practicalities and trends you should consider when choosing treatments.
The Best Materials
When you picture spring, you probably see light curtains and flowing fabrics. But fabric can actually be a not-so-hot choice. Though it looks lovely, fabric is an allergen’s favorite thing. While you have your windows open letting in the breeze, those fabric drapes are also catching and holding all the pollens and irritants that will wreak havoc on your sinuses, even long after the windows are closed. Consider something more solid, like shutters or blinds, whose solid materials still let you control light let in but that don’t also become an allergy nightmare. If you’re set on curtains or drapes, consider sheer options that let in more light and are thin enough to trap somewhat less pollen.
Window Covering Colors
Though your materials may not be breezy, your colors can still be light! It may be cliché but it’s for a good reason: spring adores a pastel. Explore not only whites and pale neutrals, but also expand your search into light colors and patterns. A touch of spring pink or green or even a small floral can bring a lot of warmth into a room.
Types Of Treatments
Some of the best spring-friendly window coverings include shutters and blinds. Both are strong, solid materials, so they won’t irritate your sinuses. They also let you have a lot of varied control over how open or shut they are. Depending on your mood, you can flood a room with sunlight or let things cool off a bit.
