How to Choose the Right Window Treatment

Curtain is no longer just a piece of fabric that covers the window to provide privacy and block the glaring sunlight. It has more to offer than that. It’s a decorative element that spices the space up and sometimes draws more attention than your other piece of furniture in a good sense. Here are the different types of window treatment that help accentuate your spaces.

1. Sheer Curtain
