Window treatments are more than just a piece of fabric to cover your windows with. They help to give your room its unique look and aesthetic while also providing valuable privacy and comfort.
However, it can be challenging to choose the right window treatments for your windows when there are so many styles and patterns to choose from. That being said, here are a few tips to help you choose just the right window treatments for your room.
- Pay attention to fabric. Many homeowners get caught up in the color and style of the curtains they choose for their home. However, the type of fabric you choose is just as important. The fabric of the treatments will tell you how much sun will come in and what kind of mood the curtains will set for the room.
- Stick to the color palette. The color of the treatments you choose should be based on the color of your walls and furnishings. For instance, match the curtains to your walls and furnishing colors for a more neutral look. For a bolder look, choose a color that contrasts with that of your walls and furnishings.
- Look at your decor before choosing a pattern. Patterns and prints can be bold statement pieces when it comes to curtains. However, before you choose one, be sure to look at the rest of your room’s decor. Rooms with solid-color furnishings often use patterned curtains to stand out. Patterned curtains can sometimes be too loud if there are already several patterned pieces throughout the room.
- Go long with length. Floor-level curtains are currently the most popular choice of curtain length. This is also a good length choice if you have kids because it prevents slips, trips, and falls. However, another option is to have your curtains slightly longer than floor length so that they elegantly puddle on the floor.
Most American homeowners will replace their window treatments approximately every seven to eight years. However, it can be difficult to find the right curtains, drapes, shutters, and shades for your home.
By following the tips listed above, you can help narrow down your options to find a style of treatments you’ll love.
