Tired of those boring blinds and drab drapes? Maybe it’s time for an update to your windows. As the primary focal point for many rooms, window treatments can make or break your décor. Refresh your windows with one of these five window treatments sure to wow guests in your home.
Roman shades offer a clean, sleek look to your windows and can complement any style from minimalist, to classic, to bold. The dramatic horizontal pleats add a unique look to your windows. The flat surface of Roman shades provides an ideal space for displaying bold, statement-making patterns. Additionally they work with a variety of styles and fabric choices.
If you’re looking to add an elegant touch to your window treatments, fabric choice is quintessential to achieving the right look. Luxurious fabrics like velvet, suede and silk add a posh swagger to one of the most important focal points in your home.
You know what they say, “Your drapes are only as good as your hardware.” Ok, maybe they don’t say that, but your hardware can certainly make or break the look of your drapes.
Lucky for you, we are a stocking vendor for Antique Drapery Rod Co. With a wide selection of vintage-style and modern hardware, you can complete your look with the optimal window accessories.
Floor-length drapes add a classic touch to any room. If you want a more romantic and dramatic look, go for drapes that break slightly at the floor. Not to mention, this style is very forgiving in older homes with uneven floors from settling foundations. Keep in mind that this style will need to be re-positioned occasionally (like when Fluffy decides to take a cat nap on the ruffled bottom).
If you’re seeking to add even more drama with your floor-length drapes, try hanging them several inches above your windows to elongate the eye and create the illusion of a more dramatic view.
Color, Color and More Color
In case you hadn’t heard, neutral is in right now. Color palettes featuring charcoal, sand, heather greys and eggshells are sweeping living areas in 2016. Contrasting these neutrals with a bright color accent is a foolproof way to brighten up any room. Add that bit of color using brightly-colored, bold-patterned drapes. While you’re at it, work in some throw pillows that complement the color of your drapes.
