Project Spotlight: Tempo, 300 East 23rd Street

It’s been a busy week for Horizon! Some of the condominiums at Tempo on 300 East 23rd Street are receiving gorgeous new treatments for their floor-to-ceiling windows.

 

Tempo Condos

 

The staff is installing Hunter Douglas silhouette shades, electric solar shades, and blackout shades and curtains into some of the rooms. The glass-walled exterior at Tempo provides a stunning view of Gramercy, but with shades that diffuse light or darken the room, the condos’ black oak wood floors will be retained.  Now, the homeowners can choose how much light they want in their sun-drenched rooms.  Opening and closing treatments is convenient and impressive with electric shades, which makes it easy to simply enjoy the luxury of large windows.

Ideas for Kitchen Window Treatments

The kitchen is the heart of your home. Windows here can really open up the space and provide you with great light. However, having window coverings is important. For some homeowners, there is a need to have treatments for privacy. For others, energy efficiency is a reason to add treatments. However, considering the area of the home, there are certain things you need to think about such as if the window treatment is a good choice for cleanliness and for the aesthetic beauty, it offers. There are some outstanding options available to you.

Consider what you need first. If the kitchen in your home is adjacent to the dining room or other formal place, or the kitchen has a more formal look to it, the window treatments need to reflect this aspect. Also important is cleanliness. Since many windows are placed right above sinks, it is easy for everything from splashes to grease to get on them. You need a product that is easy to clean and maintain.

The good news is that there are a wide range of options to choose from. For your kitchen window treatments, consider solar shades to keep temperatures in control and to reduce the overall ability of others to see into the window when you do not want them to. You may want to consider silhouette shades or cellular shades too, since these are easy to maintain but do provide that formal, elegant look.

Kitchen window treatments are available in numerous styles and function options. You are sure to find a wide range of colors, styles and fabrics to select from so that you can personalize this space. You can enhance the look and function of your window when you select the proper kitchen window treatments for the space you have selected. This is a great way to change out the look of this space inexpensively, too.
