There are many different types of window treatment options for the home and office. A few of the more popular choices are blinds, curtains and cornices. After some time, those treatments can start to look drab by fading in color and style. You can instantly change the look of your room by simply updating your window treatments. Don’t be afraid to make a statement; whether you’re looking to add color, update your space or just add privacy, these tips can turn any room from drab to fab.
With the shift towards more eco-friendly and nature-inspired materials, you can help bring nature inside your room by choosing an organic product. Mix wooden blinds and decorative fabric panels on a bamboo rod. Or layer a natural woven shade with a sheer panel. This will help create a look that is both natural and unique.
Add flare to your space by choosing a colored treatment instead of the classic and timeless white, black or brown. If you have bare walls and windows, your drapery or shades will make a statement and brighten your space. Add character and dimension to your room by layering vibrant sheers with a deeper colored panel.
Modernize rooms with sleek and seamless lines. Contemporary designs on treatments can always create a clean and simple look. A new panel with wide stripes and contrasting hues can help achieve a more modern look. The choices are truly unlimited.
Add flare to a room by choosing bold prints for your shades or drapery. Stripes, big floral designs and bold patterns are loud and can even replace wall art or paint. They are fun in a child’s space or any room that needs a little spice.
Silk is elegant and beautiful. Although silk can be more expensive than other window treatments, it makes a huge design statement. Silk panels are luxurious in their texture and create a warm and relaxing feel for your space. Pair the silk panels with steel hardware or tiebacks. This look is sure to create a luxurious feel to any room.
If you’re looking to add height, floor-length drapes are the perfect option. Install the curtain rod above your window casing so that your drapes extend either to the bottom of the casing or to the floor. The drapes can stop at the floor or create a puddle effect which not only heightens your space but is very dramatic. Floor-to-ceiling drapes are also great for adding privacy. Add a cornice board of wood or fabric with the drapes to create a more formal look.
Mix it up. If you have more than one window in a room you don’t have to use the same type of treatment. You can pair panels and shades that are the same hue or fabric design to complete your look. This can be stylish and cohesive for any space.
