Window Style 101

Published on

Your window coverings can make or break the style of your home. So, whether you’re going for a tranquil feeling or something lively to display your personality, you’re bound to find an idea here! Here are a few tips to gussy 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 dash 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 shade 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 little bit, try swapping out the curtains in your main living area. You can go as festive as you prefer!
  6. If you’re having trouble finding the perfect 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 have in mind.
  7. For an understated and stylish look, try layering solid curtains over patterned sheers.
  8. To liven up a simple shade, add trim to the bottom. You are able to use anything from a pretty 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 full-of-experience DIYer or prefer to choose the simplicity of a ready-to-hang curtain.
