Window Style 101

Published on

Your window coverings can play a big role in the style of your room. So, whether you’re going for a tranquil feeling or something vibrant to express your personality, you’re bound to uncover an idea here! Here are a few tips to gussy up your windows.

  1. To create a sense of drama or to make a smaller room feel bigger, try floor-to-ceiling curtains.
  2. To add a bit of colorful character to a neutral room, or just to show off 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 is on 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 every little bit, try swapping out the curtains in your main living room. You can go as festive as you’d like!
  6. If you’re having trouble finding the perfect pattern for your curtains, don’t limit yourself to regular window curtains. Try checking out 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 are able to use anything from a fancy ribbon to sea shells you discovered on vacation.
As you can see, when you’re fancying up your windows, the only limit is your ideas. You can find fantastic alternatives in any price range, whether you’re an experienced DIYer or prefer to go for the simplicity of a ready-to-hang curtain.
