Window Style 101

Published on

Your window coverings can impact the style of your space. So, whether you’re shooting for a tranquil feeling or something lively to express your personality, you’re bound to uncover an idea here! Here are eight tips to fancy up your windows.

  1. To generate a sense of drama or to make a smaller room seem bigger, try floor-to-ceiling curtains.
  2. To add a pop of colorful character to a neutral room, or just to express 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 bit too dark, brighten things up with classic white curtains.
  5. If you love changing things up for the season, or just like to change things up every once in a while, try changing out the curtains in your main living space. You can go as festive as you’d like!
  6. If you’re having trouble finding the perfect pattern for your curtains, don’t hold yourself to regular window curtains. Try looking for 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 can use anything from a fancy 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 great alternatives in any price range, whether you’re a master DIYer or prefer to choose the simplicity of a ready-to-hang curtain.
