How To Choose The Right Window Treatments For Your Home

We hope this helps make selecting new window treatments easier and more enjoyable – so let’s get started!

Sash Window Dressing Solutions

When it comes to dressing sash windows, there are a few key points to keep in mind. Generally speaking, curtains, pelmets, and shutters work very well as window dressing solutions. However, if you have period features in your home or need to adhere to certain restrictions (such as listed building regulations), you may want to look into alternative options.


Curtains can be used in many ways with sash windows; they’re often hung from the ceiling and draped above the window itself, or they can also fit snugly around the frame. They offer light insulation, privacy and a splash of colour; find fabrics that are good at blocking out light for improved energy efficiency.


Pelmet boxes add an instant touch of style to any room thanks to their traditional aesthetic and practicality – especially when designed for supreme functionality rather than decoration alone. Incorporating pelmet boxes into your sash windows adds more control over how much heat loss is experienced through them by eliminating gaps where draughts could enter from outside without sacrificing natural ventilation due to their design flexibility.


Shutters provide another great means of controlling lighting levels whilst adding a stylish ambience within a room; plus, due to the accordion-style effect when oped, fully extendable panels will stretch across larger panes undisturbed by closed panels behind them, offering ever-increasing design potential. You’ll generally need either flat moulding bands or raised louvre bars on each panel depending on convenience factors, e.g. storage availability/aesthetics needed & acoustics etc.

When shopping around for suitable styles, remember that Heritage Regulations may dictate specific requirements regarding materials used, i.e. protective glazes, timbers stained finishes etc. – having existing structure reports & regular service checks available prove invaluable here!

In conclusion, sash windows provide the perfect opportunity to add a style statement to your home. Whether you’re looking for curtains or shutters or have a specific period property requirement in mind, there is something out there for everyone.
