As experienced window treatment professionals with over 35 years of experience, we come across several clients who want to add their personal touch and style to their homes. Some of the most common questions we get asked are: how can we control the sunlight entering the property? Can the room appear larger with specific window options? How can I make my rooms warmer in winter? Whatever you do, do not underestimate your window treatment option in providing your home with a stunning design and stylish look. Here are five factors that you need to work on to achieve that perfect, harmonious look:
Combining Functionality With the Aesthetics
Most often, we find ourselves sacrificing style for the window that offers the right functional benefits. Generally, you’re looking for privacy, light control, and effective insulation. The first thing that you need to do is decide which of these features are you looking for? Do you want better light control and don’t entirely mind the temperature? Or do you prefer both?
Next, browse through the extensive material and pattern selection to find the perfect combination that caters to your particular needs and also offers you a beautiful layout. Focus on making a style statement with your window option. You could buy wood blinds, or invest in cellular shades, roman shades, and roller shades – all of which are the epitome of style with functional values.
When you’re choosing fabrics, there is one significant factor that you need to decide on: is your window the focal point of the room? Or is it complementing another focus? Look for beautiful drapery patterns that add that pop of color. Make sure it stands out from the otherwise neutral wall colors. You could also opt for a subtle elegance by choosing fabric colors that complement the room. Remember, the right fabric selection has the power to impact the perceived size of the room.
Add A Bit of Warmth To The Cool Room
For harmony, you need to incorporate the right blend of warm and cool colors. If your room is a stark reminder of harsh cool colors, it’s perhaps best if you use your window option to add some warmth and comfort to the otherwise austere look. For instance, an all-white room could use rich-colored blinds and dark brown draperies to offset the cool tone.
Rebel Against the “Conventional”
For the longest time, we have remained caught up with meeting the standards of design. However, it is important to note that some of the most stunning designs are ones that dare to be different – that stand out against the conventional rules. Vertical blinds have been this window option of choice, stepping away from traditional horizontal blind designs. Also, consider combining draperies with sheer shades. Why limit yourself to one when you can have a stunning look at both? Take a look at some discount vertical blinds here!
