Ethan Allen Design Tip: The Importance of Window Treatments

CT Style

Window treatments play a number of roles in a room. They can add softness, privacy, and can also improve the overall look and feel.

“Window treatments are the most important element of a room,” said Ethan Allen Design Consultant Marty Holick. “It actually completes your design.”

Holick says when designing a room, he often designs the windows first.

“It creates the mood,” he explained. “It creates an emotion. Window treatments are in fact almost like the eye to the soul of the room.”

Holick thinks every window deserves to have a textile on it, but there are some things to consider when doing so.

“You want to make sure you mount it at the correct height and that you select a fabric or a textile that’s going to accentuate the room,” he explained.
