Window Style 101

Window Style 101

Your window coverings can impact the style of your home. So, whether you’re going for a tranquil feeling or something vibrant to display your personality, you’re bound to uncover an idea here! Here are a few tips to dress 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 bit of colorful character to a neutral room, or just to display your personality, try curtains, roman shades, or even roller shades with a fancy 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 bit 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 a lot, try changing out the curtains in your main living room. You can go as festive as you’d like!
  6. If you’re having issues finding the best pattern for your curtains, don’t hold yourself to traditional window curtains. Try looking for tablecloths, twin bed sheets or shower curtains to find what you have in mind.
  7. For an understated and elegant 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 fancy 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 fantastic alternatives in any price range, whether you’re an experienced DIYer or prefer to choose the simplicity of a ready-to-hang curtain.
