Window treatments are a great outlet to showcasing a homeowner’s creativity. They are also the perfect tool for tying a space together, creating a polished look that you want for your room.
When it comes to designing, homeowners have an endless supply of options. Between the prints, patterns and colors, it can be difficult to know where to start.
Therefore, with so many window treatments to choose from, here are some of our favorite ideas to consider.
The Classic Use of Roman Shades
While seemingly complicated, Roman shades are actually not that difficult to operate. Plus, they are budget friendly and easy to update. When installing Roman shades homeowners will find themselves with a classic look in the moment with plenty of flexibility should you want to update your look down the road.
Homeowners looking to make a statement can do so by matching an elaborate pattern to both the valance and any throw pillows. While it might sound a little old-fashioned to match window treatments and pillows, it can be an effective way to create cohesion in a space with mismatched furniture.
Go Beyond Fabric
Window treatments afford homeowners options that extend far beyond just the fabric. For example, incorporating matchstick shades can help create a sense of polish while also lending an airy feel to a room.
If you are going for a dramatic, theatrical look, consider taking advantage of pooling drapes. Typically, you do not want your drapes to pool on the floor, but that does not necessarily apply to window coverings.
Believe it or not, your curtains do not necessarily have to match on both sides. For example, using a single billowing curtain can be better than using two. To fully embrace this strategy, you can implement an extra-wide curtain that is moved to the side during the day and pulled closed during the night.
Light and Airy
Depending on the color scheme that is used in a room, using opaque drapes can give off a feeling of heaviness. When this is the case, sheer drapes can be used to help create a light and airy sense. And if you are using sheer curtains, do not feel constrained by the window size. By hanging the drapes from wall to wall and from the floor to the ceiling, you can make the entire room feel larger than it is actually is.
By installing top down-bottom up shades, homeowners can find themselves with the best of both privacy and light. With these designs, the blinds can either be lowered from the top or raised from the bottom.
If the room you are updating is seemingly simple, you can create a sense of “wow” by taking advantage of a colorful pattern. For example, a boost of color from a valance can be just the thing to complete an otherwise all-white room.
