These window treatments have not lost their appeal and timeless beauty. You’ll find these window treatments in some of the most beautiful homes on Long Island.

One important element of the interior design is the window treatment which provides an aesthetic, but most importantly, a functional purpose in the home. If you want a beautiful, classic look, these are the best window treatments to use:

Shutters

Window shutters are excellent window treatments for a colonial home as they provide ventilation and protect the interior of a home from the harsh rays of the sun. Their louvered blades, controlled with a central pole, also serve as an excellent and easy insulation for the home. They are best not to be covered with curtains and can stand out alone.

The use of shutters dates back from ancient Greece. They were also used during the pre-colonial times in New England. Today, these have stood the test of time and are still considered one of the best options for window treatment for a colonial home for both its functional and aesthetic qualities.

In choosing shutters to use for your home, be careful of what to buy as there are two different types: colonial shutters and plantation shutters. These two types serve different purposes. Colonial shutters, as they have shorter and narrower slats, are used to keep out the cold breeze from the outside. Plantation shutters on the other hand are commonly used in tropical areas to keep heat out, with its wider and longer slats.

Venetian Blinds

Another great window treatment option for a colonial home is wooden blinds. Like shutters, they too have a rich history that dates back from ancient Egypt. Also called Venetian blinds, wooden blinds have slats, 1 to 3 inches wide, connected together by a long strip of cloth.

Venetian blinds were popular in New England between the 1800 and 1900s. They used to come in a clear finish to show the beautiful graining of the wood and this was part of its appeal. Nowadays, homeowners have more options as they come in different colors.

Aside from this aesthetic quality, Venetian blinds also provide many benefits to your home, including being easy to maintain.

Shutters and blinds not only complement the charming design of homes, they also do justice to its beautiful exteriors. So if you’re looking to revamp your classy Long Island home, consider getting any of these window treatments.

It is that time of year. The kids have been back to school now for a couple of weeks, work is busy, and we are in the grind.

Football and Soccer abound, and families are thrilled with the return of mom’s home made chili and apple crisp. Before you know it Halloween will arrive, followed promptly by Thanksgiving.

Choosing Kitchen Window Treatments

By | Window Treatments | No Comments

The way you filter light into a home is essential in it’s design. A great home has beautiful architecture and interior design, but if the windows aren’t decorated in a manner to compliment all of that then what’s the point? Window treatments need to take into account both beauty and function. This is a delicate marriage in the design world and only the best blind companies can deliver a result that is both beautiful and functional. Bad design can come across as institutional, boring, and plain. From a functional standpoint the best jobs are done in a manner that diffuses light in a way that compliments the room.

In the kitchen light control is essential! Look for window treatments that allow cooling breezes to enter while providing varying degrees of privacy and light filtering.

If you cook frequently and your stove is near a window, be sure that the window treatment materials you select stand up to heat and humidity and are easy to clean. One great choice are Reveal® aluminum blinds by Hunter Douglas.

Window treatments made of moisture-resistant materials – such as Palm Beach™ polysatin shutters and EverWood® alternative wood blinds – are also a great option for a window close to a kitchen sink.

East end blinds has a large selection of shutters, blinds and shades. The best part about our company is our friendly and knowledgeable design team. You get to work with Tom and the team at no extra charge. It’s part of our way of doing things. We don’t just sell window blinds, we work closely with customers to help their vision come to life. It’s an enjoyable process that we take pride in.
