Window Style 101

Published on

Your window coverings can play a big role in the style of your home. So, whether you’re going for a tranquil feeling or something vibrant to show off your personality, you’re bound to discover an idea here! Here are a few tips to fancy up your windows.

  1. To generate a sense of drama or to make a smaller room appear 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 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 bit 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 space. You can go as festive as you prefer!
  6. If you’re having problems finding the ideal pattern for your curtains, don’t confine yourself to traditional window curtains. Try looking at 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 liven up a simple shade, add trim to the bottom. You could use anything from a nice ribbon to sea shells you discovered 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 a master DIYer or prefer to choose the simplicity of a ready-to-hang curtain.
