Window Style 101

Window Style 101

Your window coverings can make or break the style of your room. So, whether you’re shooting for a tranquil feeling or something bright to display your personality, you’re bound to find an idea here! Here are a few tips to fancy up your windows.

  1. To create a sense of drama or to make a smaller room seem bigger, try floor-to-ceiling curtains.
  2. To add a pop 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 once in a while, try switching out the curtains in your main living room. You can go as festive as you prefer!
  6. If you’re having issues finding the best pattern for your curtains, don’t hold yourself to regular 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 spruce up a simple shade, add trim to the bottom. You can use anything from a pretty ribbon to sea shells you found on vacation.
As you can see, when you’re sprucing up your windows, the only limit is your imagination. 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.
