Dressing your windows can be an exciting and creative project, but with all the options available today it can also be a daunting one. Today, we have narrowed this down and put together some of our top tips for dressing your windows.
Mix & Match
Don’t be afraid to mix and match patterns. It is a great way to add flair to your room. If you’re not sure how to pair patterns, start with something simple like two different-sized squares or rectangles in different colours. Then, use the same shapes or colours but pair them with other patterns. You can also try mixing different types of stripes or different-size polka dots! You can do this to dress your window and utilize the patterns on cushions to tie the room together. Even use a contrasting pattern for your cushions as pictured below.
Symmetrical window treatments are more common but it doesn’t mean you have to stick to them. For a unique addition to your room try an asymmetrical treatment. You could have one side of your blinds hang lower than another (or vice versa). Or use a different pattern on each window treatment. If you have two different-shaped windows in one room, this dressing style will suit your home perfectly.
Keep It Simple – Sewn In
If you are looking for a simple way to dress your windows, try a rod pocket treatment. This method can work for any window size and the panels will drape beautifully. Use draperies in unexpected places like above doors or on the tops of windows. If you use curtains on top of doors one great option would be using valances instead of full-length curtains so they don’t block light coming into rooms behind them. You can also hang them above doorways leading outside.
There are a lot of options for you to choose from when it comes to dressing your windows, so find something that works best for you and your space! We hope that these tips have helped you get started on your window treatment journey! Talk to our team of experts today, call us at 855-945-1501.
