Window Style 101

Published on

Your window coverings can play a big role in the style of your space. So, whether you’re shooting for a tranquil feeling or something lively to display your personality, you’re bound to uncover an idea here! Here are a few tips to gussy up your windows.

  1. To create a sense of drama or to make a smaller room feel bigger, try floor-to-ceiling curtains.
  2. To add a bit of colorful character to a neutral room, or just to express your personality, try curtains, roman shades, or even roller shades with a whimsical print.
  3. To really pull a room together, try having window curtains made with the same fabric that covers your throw pillows, an ottoman or even the headboard on your bed.
  4. If you feel your room is a shade too dark, brighten things up with classic white curtains.
  5. If you love sprucing things up for the season, or just like to change things up every once in a while, try switching out the curtains in your main living room. You can go as festive as you want to!
  6. If you’re having problems finding the ideal pattern for your curtains, don’t confine yourself to regular window curtains. Try looking for tablecloths, twin bed sheets or shower curtains to find what you envision.
  7. For an understated and classy look, try layering solid curtains over patterned sheers.
  8. To dress up a simple shade, add trim to the bottom. You are able to use anything from a nice ribbon to sea shells you picked up on vacation.
As you can see, when you’re dressing your windows, the only limit is your mind. You can find great alternatives in any price range, whether you’re an experienced DIYer or prefer to go for the simplicity of a ready-to-hang curtain.
