Using the Power of Light to Shape our Surroundings
Light has the power to not only guide our perceptions of things but it also has the incredible ability to change our moods as well. Most people don’t consider light to be a decorating tool but it has the unique ability to set the tone of your bathroom atmosphere, visually mold the shapes of your fixtures or create a calm and restful atmosphere when soaking in your tub.
I had an interesting talk with Sheila’s Drapery about shutters in your bathroom and the best type of moisture resistant window dressing for your bath.
The mission statement on the HunterDouglas Gallery/Sheila’s Drapery brochure states that, Light can change everything. Light itself is a good thing because without it we’d all be stumbling around in the dark.
The problem arises when there is direct strong sunlight without protection. Your windows should be shielded with UV (Ultra Violet) protection to block the intense glaring rays of the sun that will fade upholstery, discolour carpets and degrade the color integrity of your prized possessions.
Controlling the Flow of Natural Illumination
The way to control natural light is by filtering it through your window dressings. Blinds, shutters, shades, curtains all play an important role in how light enters our sanctuary. Window fashions not only allow you to direct how much and where the light is coming from but also offers privacy and style to your bathroom decor.
Window dressings can also be energy efficient. They keep excessive heat from entering your washroom on those hot summer days so your cooling fans won’t be working overtime and keeps heat in by providing insulation on those cold winter days so you save on your fuel bills.
From contemporary materials to modern precious metals, blinds and shutters are the way to go in your bathroom. They are not only convenient and add good looks but they can also be automated for your added viewing pleasure using Power Rise and Power Glide systems.
