The ABC’s of Window Fashion part 2 ...

Part two:

Window treatments can also camouflage an unpleasant view or architecture flaws.  If you have an unpleasant view, sheers will soften the image.  Maybe you have uneven windows.  Valances hung at the same level over the windows can hide that fact and make it more visually appealing.

You can also give the illusion that a small window is larger than it is by framing the window with your window treatments.  A room can also be made to look bigger with soft, light or cool colors for your window treatments.

And last but not least, you want your window treatments to be beautiful as well as functional.  When choosing the right look for your room, think about the mood you want to create; casual, comfortable, elegant, sophisticated? For a comfortable, casual feel you might choose textured fabrics with a tailored shape.  If it is romance you are going for, use an abundance of soft sheer or silky fabrics.  Sleek lines and bold colors will give a dramatic, contemporary feel.  If you are making over the entire room, it is recommended that you choose your window treatments first and then select your wall color.  You don’t want to be limited in your selection by your wall color.

There are multiple ways to cover your windows and to achieve the effect you want and need – give me a call and we can get started on it right away!
