From blinds to sheers fabrics, voiles and swags. There are endless possibilities when it comes down to window treatments and we love it. It’s the ultimate way to dress a room in a certain style or feeling like intimacy or softness. Our following guide will give you the know-how to find the right window curtain designs.
Before you already start dreaming away by the amazing possibilities, it would be wise to set up the most important considerations. What’s the function of the room: a private bedroom with total darkness or a decorative one for the restroom? Limit your curtain choices, so it will be easier to choose. Our first advise is to take always lined curtains. Next to the facts that the way how it falls is much more beautiful, it lasts much longer plus it’s extra protection for sun damages.
Another choice you have to make is the framing and choosing the rod. To create the illusion of a larger room, apply the rod more above the window frame, or halfway between the frame and the ceiling molding or even on the ceiling. To create a very spacious room you can hang the curtains on the both sides of the window, maximum to the outside. The fabrics are falling against the wall without blocking the glass and it will allow the extra sunlight. But sometimes you want to create a more elegant romantic atmosphere like you see in the pictures below. Get inspired by different hardware and passementerie, focus on the details and go for stylish window design.
Bring space alive
If you made the decision, you can dream on about colors and patterns. Anything is possible, just check the color palette with the rest of the room and don’t be afraid to go a little bit wild; energetic geometrics, daring animal prints, classic paisley, fun dots or balanced florals. Anything is possible!
Formal or relaxed
The last important detail is the length of the curtains. What’s the feeling you want to create: classic? practical? formal? romantic? A secret rule is the more it hits the floor, the more relaxed or romantic the room will feel.
