Any good apartment will have adequate number of windows to ensure good ventilation and light inside the flat. But of course, you need to cover these windows for aesthetic appeal, privacy and security. Here are some ideas for window treatment that will help you transform your flat.
These are very popular nowadays as they offer a heady combination of functionality with the softness and elegance of drapes. These are made of a continuous fabric piece with horizontal channels from top to bottom, that lie flat but fold up neatly when raised.
A classic treatment, it incorporates architectural design directly into your windows, and lends a touch of class to your home from the inside and outside.

An age old classic, wood blinds are durable, and offer a warm appearance to the room, and blends well with your furniture because of the grains and stains seen on the blinds.
Faux wood blinds
Of course, wood does not come cheap, so if you want the same appearance without spending a packet, you can opt for faux wood – made of composite wood or PVC; these are water resistant, and are ideal for kitchens and bathrooms, where actual wood blinds could warp and crack.
One of the most energy efficient window treatments, these are great insulators. These comprise of fabric with honeycomb cells that trap the air between the window and the room, allowing the maintaining of a pleasant temperature inside.
Woven wood shades
The most common materials used for woven wood shades are bamboo, grass and reeds. They add a very informal, natural feel to a room. For increased privacy and customization, you can add a liner or fabric trim to this shade.
Panel track blinds
Made from a series of fabric panels, these slide back and forth to afford privacy and light control. These blinds are a modern version of vertical blinds, and are great for covering large windows or sliding glass doors.
These shades are very affordable and have minimal appearance when raised as they roll up into a tube; you can also choose to control the amount of light entering the room by choosing blackout or translucent fabric.
These are made of two sheer fabric facings placed over soft fabric vanes, so that vanes are opened, you get diffused light entering your room, and you have a good view of the outside. They can completely block out light when closed, especially if you use room darkening styles of sheer shades.
Drapery are like usual curtains only but they have various types. Starting from the thinnest to thickest fabrics: sheer, curtains, and drapes. These are all time classics, and add a touch of elegance to your flat in Palakkad, and they are available in a multitude of colours, patterns and fabrics. You can layer them with valances or swags for a romantic look.
