Consider These When Choosing Window Treatments

4 DESIGN FACTORS TO CONSIDER WHEN CHOOSING WINDOW TREATMENTS

After the function of the room has been handled, it’s time for the fun part. This is where your personality comes into play and there are a plethora of design options to express yourself!

Window treatments are no longer exempt from design or fashion. From fabric choices to shape and color, there is a lot to keep in mind. Here, we will break down four design factors to consider when choosing your window treatments

1ST DESIGN FACTOR: COLOR

Color is personal – it’s how it makes you feel. High impact hues amp up the energy of a room. Inky, dark tones bring it all in close. When done correctly, they make a space feel cozy and intimate, like being wrapped up in a blanket with a good book on a rainy day.

Then there are neutrals. Often times, neutrals act as the basis for most designs. Think timeless, classic, perhaps minimalist. Neutrals make it easy to accessorize with pops of color through pillows, top treatments, or drapery panels.

2ND DESIGN FACTOR: PATTERN

Patterns can keep a room from falling flat or hitting one note. If you choose a neutral palette, try mixing patterns in varying scales and styles. It never hurts to pick the obvious coordinate, but mix it up and try unexpected combinations. You might be pleasantly surprised!The general rule of thumb for pattern mixing is to pair:

  • large scale
  • geometric
  • small scale
  • texture

We make sure our Select Masterpieces collections play well with each other, as you can see in our three examples.

3RD DESIGN FACTOR: TEXTURE

Adding texture brings yet another layer of visual interest. Just like patterns, textures can keep a room from falling flat by adding tactile appeal or to enforce a design style. For example, rough and natural textures add a rustic feeling while smooth and glossy textures add a contemporary touch.

4TH DESIGN FACTOR: SHAPE

The shape of your window treatments can greatly impact the harmony in a space. For example, floor to ceiling draperies can add height and drama to a room, as you can see here.

Arches or uniquely shaped windows can soften hard lines to create a sense of balance.
