Decorating windows in any room can be a daunting task. You don’t want your windows to look boring, or unattractive, and you want them to reflect your style. Tricky enough for just one room, but what if you are choosing window treatments for several rooms? At Takoy Windows by Design, we want you to love your windows, and we will do everything we can to make sure you do. Here are some ideas to help you get started designing your dream window treatments.
Play with Scale
If you are a fan of patterns and want to coordinate your windows with your walls or upholstery, you absolutely can. Simply choose a fabric with a similar pattern and in a different size so your room isn’t overwhelmed with one type of pattern.
Mix and Match
Sometimes you just can’t decide on a type of window treatment. Maybe you want shades, and your spouse wants curtains. While we can’t settle that dispute for you, we can tell you that you can have the best of both worlds. Sophisticated shades can pair with casual curtains if both are in a neutral hue. It’s also worth mentioning that shades provide light and privacy control, while curtains or drapes provide drama and a frame for your window.
Fake a Window’s Height
If you have a room with windows of different heights and want a streamlined look you can fake a consistent height by mounting shades a bit higher. Be sure to go for an outside mount.
Beautiful Beams? Show ‘Em Off
If you have a gorgeous accent in your room that you want to be a focal point of, use your windows. Shades in a dark hue draw the eye upward towards exposed beams, while artisan drapery in a mid-tone hue keeps the room feeling open and accessible.
Create a Cozy Bathroom
While frosted glass will always have a place in bathrooms, sometimes it’s nice to have a warmer, cozier feel. Choose a warm-toned faux wood or fabric to create a soft, glowy source of natural light in the room. A bonus is not sacrificing your view as you do with frosted glass.
Take a Risk
We know that patterns and bright hues make a lot of people wary. We get it. If you get it right, it’s stunning. If you get it wrong… That’s the beauty of window treatments. In a room with solid furnishings and flooring, windows are a perfect spot to experiment with a pattern or hue you wouldn’t normally go for. Since window treatments are easy to swap out it’s pretty low-risk, and you might love it.
Run with Your Favorites
Which room in your home is a color that you love? You may think that matching your window treatments to your wall color is a design faux pas, but that’s not always the case! Window treatments that closely match your wall color create a sleek, minimalist look that provides a perfect backdrop for your artwork and furnishings.
