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 display your personality, you’re bound to find an idea here! Here are a few tips to fancy up your windows.

  1. To establish a sense of drama or to make a smaller room feel bigger, try floor-to-ceiling curtains.
  2. To add a pop of colorful character to a neutral room, or just to display your personality, try curtains, roman shades, or even roller shades with a quirky 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 changing things up for the season, or just like to change things up every little bit, try changing out the curtains in your main living space. You can go as festive as you’d like!
  6. If you’re having issues finding the ideal pattern for your curtains, don’t hold yourself to traditional window curtains. Try looking at tablecloths, twin bed sheets or shower curtains to find what you’re looking for.
  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 could use anything from a nice ribbon to sea shells you picked up on vacation.
As you can see, when you’re dressing your windows, the only limit is your ideas. You can find good alternatives in any price range, whether you’re an experienced DIYer or prefer to choose the simplicity of a ready-to-hang curtain.
