Window Style 101

Published on

Your window coverings can play a big role in the style of your home. So, whether you’re aiming for a tranquil feeling or something bright to express your personality, you’re bound to uncover an idea here! Here are couple 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 show off your personality, try curtains, roman shades, or even roller shades with a fancy 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 tad 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 little bit, try changing out the curtains in your main living area. You can go as festive as you prefer!
  6. If you’re having issues finding the ideal pattern for your curtains, don’t hold yourself to normal window curtains. Try looking at tablecloths, twin bed sheets or shower curtains to find what you’re looking for.
  7. For an understated and elegant look, try layering solid curtains over patterned sheers.
  8. To liven up a simple shade, add trim to the bottom. You could use anything from a pretty ribbon to sea shells you found on vacation.
As you can see, when you’re dressing your windows, the only limit is your mind. You can find fantastic alternatives in any price range, whether you’re a master DIYer or prefer to choose the simplicity of a ready-to-hang curtain.
