Inspirational Window Treatments

Interior Design: Inspirational Window Treatments

Window treatments are a great way to add that little something extra to a room to help fill it out and make it cozy.  There are many types - curtains, draperies, roman shades and blinds - are just a few common examples.

Another great reason to use window treatments is because it can help you save money by keeping the hot and/or cold air in your home.

A few tips when creating window treatments:
  • If covering a small window, install long curtains on either side with the drape bar well above the window. This will create the illusion of having taller windows.
  • Try using fabrics with texture or shapes if you have a very plain room. 
  • Change the treatments in and out with the seasons (heavier fabrics in the winter, lighter fabrics in the summer)
  • It's ok to match the furniture to the window fabrics, traditionally this is how it was done
Here are a few examples of some inspirational window treatments:
