An easy way to update a bedroom or living space without breaking the bank or spending weeks on a big project, is to simply replace or add cushions and pillows to a room. They make the space feel more comfortable and inviting. Start by removing all of the old, outdated pillows if there even were any to start with. Then, find new pillows to compliment the room. This doesn’t mean matching it to your couch or furniture, but picking an accent colour from a rug or painting in the same room. You can choose ones with different textures, buttons, or trimmings, and don’t be afraid to experiment. After all, they are only pillows, and can be changed again. When choosing pillows, keep in mind the other decor elements in the room. If you already have lots of patterns and textures, go with solid colours, but if you want to spruce up a plain and boring room, go with a more detailed pillow. Pick out different shapes and sizes and play around with the arrangements. Cushions and pillows add a spark to any couch or bed. Get creative and have fun!
With the exception of sheers, lining your drapery gives a professional look. With the large variety of linings available at Panoramic Shades you ask which lining should I use? Lining also makes a curtain look more attractive from the outside while protecting the drapes from sun damage.
Linings offer installation and privacy especially in bedrooms. Blackout lining is my preferred choice at Panoramic Shades, not only does blackout lining provide privacy it also keeps the colour of the drape consistent. For example, take a look at a drape hanging partially on the window and partially on the wall. See the colour difference if lined with regular lining. Now line the same drape with blackout lining and the colour is consistent both on the window and wall because no light is filtering through. The sun is able to penetrate through regular lining damaging your drapery. Blackout lining will protect your drapery and keep the colour consistent no matter how much light or sun is outside. Thermal linings another choice, help keep rooms cool in the summer and warm in the winter, keeping your energy bills lower. At Panoramic Shades we always line our drapery with quality linings!
It’s Thursday today, the long weekend is just around the corner. It’s going to be a hot one. Not thinking about blinds; we’re thinking the cottage, swimming, grilling.
The hot sun though can keep our homes too warm in turn the air conditioning is constantly running. Also our furniture and floors can fade from continuous sun; maybe we should think about blinds. Call Panoramic Shades, see our vast selection and protect your assets.
