If your window is a large bay or arched type you should consider the curvature and the number of angles it bends in. Either you can have a curved window dressing or have the curtains for every side of the window. Depending on the size you can have either manually operated or if it is very big then use electric switch operated blinds or curtains. Drapes are a dressy option for large windows. But it can be really heavy and needs several yards of cloth for creating these window treatments for large windows. This is more traditional option and looks great with old style home with high domed ceilings and ornate windows. When you have large grounds and each window frames a beautiful view it is only fair to dress it up with beautiful drapes and window curtains.
You can include more than a single pattern in your window dressings. This is particularly important in a room that does not have a pattern of its own. You can combine window treatments such as wood blinds covered with tie back panels and topped with a valance to create depth. You must also think about texture when designing your window coverings. For instance you may have a room that is predominately filled with wood pieces rather than upholstered furniture; in such a room you may want to install soft luxurious curtains. If you are working with rooms that are mostly drywall and carpeting consider the natural tones of wood to warm up the rooms.
The most typical of the treatments are the fabric coverings. For bathrooms and kitchen where the moisture level is high, lighter fabric treatments are suggested as they preserve less moisture. Fabric treatment could not be ideal if your window is really large and is directly facing the sun, for such windows heavy materials could solve the problem. Heavy material treatment can satisfy your privacy concern. Nevertheless if precise textures, colors, shades and treatments are selected then could prove themselves best padding and brightness.
Color is also important in the room. You want your window treatment to blend in with the rest of your decor. In tip #2 you decided what type of look you wanted but now you need to decide what color you want in that style. In order to do that you need to decide how much light you want coming through your window. Do you want drapes that allow you to control the light? For example, if you use solid color panels on your windows, you can pull them when you want to block out the sun and you can open them when you want more light. The more you open them, the lighter it looks.
If you need minimal light control and privacy is not an issue, consider these windows your opportunity to reflect your personal style and create a look that is uniquely yours without having any limitations other than the size and shape of the windows. Here you can go all out, selecting fabric window treatments that make a dramatic statement or ones that very subtly pull all the elements of your room together to give it a finished look. Look around the room. Select a color or colors that may need to be emphasized. Is there a touch of red in your floor treatment or in the sofa throw pillows that you'd like to bring out? Or perhaps your wall color is soft and muted, and you'd like to give the room a punch of contrasting colors here.
Cellular shades are also quite common. This design is so called because of the shape which is like the cells. The cellular shades are usually translucent and this is the reason why it allows a little bit of light to enter into the room. Horizontal shades can also make s great design for the window treatments. These designs are quite classy as well as clean and look elegant on the windows. You should choose the best fit for your windows. The Hunter Douglas window treatments offer some of the modern designs for the windows.
If you just bought a new house that already has window coverings, you can try and negotiate with the seller to include the window coverings with the sale of the house. That way you won't have to purchases any treatments for your windows at all or a least it will give you time to save and purchase your dream window dressings when you are more financially prepared. If your goal is to replace those old and dingy window dressings that have been hanging in your bedroom or living room for years, then you'll want to consider these next few tips carefully.
