Your window treatments can tie your décor together and put that perfect finishing touch on your interior design. Unfortunately, a misstep in choosing window treatments could have the opposite effect, resulting in a disharmonious look that prevents your home from reaching its aesthetic potential. What can you do to find the perfect custom drapery in Dallas or other type of window treatment? Let’s discuss some of the primary factors you should consider before you make a choice.
The Room’s Proportions
Window size and shape, ceiling height, how far the windows are from the ceiling, and other spatial factors will all play a role in how your window treatments look. For example, hanging curtains too low in a room with a high ceiling can make the room appear shorter than it is. Large, dark, and heavy draperies might feel out of place in a small room. Improperly hanging curtains could make small windows appear even smaller.
Texture, Color, and Patterns
You might already have a fair idea of what color you want your window treatments to be. The perfect hue all depends on your personal style and the existing décor in a room. However, you also need to think about texture and patterns. Mixing and matching textures in a room — for example, choosing a curtain with a satin finish for a room with a lot of matte finishes — can add a whole new dimension to a space. Similarly, choosing a bold pattern can add visual interest to décor in some cases. On the other hand, a subtle pattern may be just what you need to make a room look finished and put together.
Of course, practical and functional considerations also come into play when you are picking out window treatments. For example:
- If you are choosing treatments for your bedroom, blackout curtains or shades may be the best way to ensure privacy and a comfortable sleeping environment. They are also excellent for energy efficiency.
- If you would like lots of natural light in a space, sheer curtain can give you a degree of privacy without making a room too dark.
- If you have small children in your home, large drapes that pool on the floor or long, dangling cords might pose a safety hazard. Custom blinds or shade might be a better option.
- If you are away from home a lot or have very large, tall windows, motorized window treatments may be right for you.
