Window Style 101

Window Style 101

Your window coverings can impact the style of your room. So, whether you’re aiming 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 establish a sense of drama or to make a smaller room appear 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 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 sprucing things up for the season, or just like to change things up a lot, try swapping out the curtains in your main living area. You can go as festive as you want to!
  6. If you’re having issues finding the perfect pattern for your curtains, don’t confine yourself to normal 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 dress up a simple shade, add trim to the bottom. You could use anything from a pretty ribbon to sea shells you found on vacation.
As you can see, when you’re dressing your windows, the only limit is your imagination. You can find great alternatives in any price range, whether you’re an experienced DIYer or prefer to go for the simplicity of a ready-to-hang curtain.
