Global Window Dressings Market 2015-2019
About Window Dressing
Scientists at the Lighting Research Center (LRC), in Troy, New York, US, have reported that naturally lit homes enhance the occupants’ comfort and productivity, and provide the mental and visual stimulation necessary to regulate human circadian rhythms. Interior designers and architectures plan houses in such way that maximum amount of natural light penetrates the interiors. However, excessive lights can be troublesome and hence there should be a proper light balance. Also, windows cannot be kept wide open all day as it reduces privacy, increases heat gain/loss, and creates glaring problems. Window dressing products are helpful to counter such problems.
Blinds, shades, shutters, and curtains are some of the common window dressing products. A good window dressing product helps in controlling light, and maintains privacy, besides adding to the aesthetic appeal of the home décor. Consumers usually choose window dressing products while coordinating with their furniture and wall colors. The growing interest in fashionable home décor and an increase in disposable income of consumers is propelling the demand for window dressing products worldwide.
