The way you dress a window can transform a room from a space that is just OK, to something really special. When it comes to dressing your windows, there are many different options available to you. You may be a person that loves the luxurious feel that a pair of bespoke curtains will give you, alternatively, you may be looking for a smart minimalistic option, in which case a pair of ready-made roman blinds in East Kilbride or wherever you are based offer the ideal solution.
Whatever your style, preference or budget we feel that there are several good options to help you make your room a functional and welcoming space. One thing to keep in mind when considering a window dressing for any room is the primary function of that space. For example, in a bedroom, you need a window covering that allows you to sleep well and peacefully, therefore you should ensure that your window covering gives you the dark and private space you need. In our article, we have looked at five different options that will give any room a great new look. You can follow Korean Style Bedroom as an example of good looking bedroom.
Match Your Curtains and Blinds
If you have a large room with many windows, think about treating them as an individual space as opposed to part of a series. For example, it may be more practical to dress a large bay window with full-length curtains to help keep out drafts, while using a Roman blind on a flat window in the same room as it is better suited to the shape. You can keep the theme by using the same fabric for both and matching it up with cushions and other accessories to dress your room.
Fit A Voile
Sheer curtains otherwise known as voiles are one of the most elegant ways to control the flow of sunlight into any room. They can either be used as a stand-alone window covering in rooms that don’t require total darkness or privacy, or in conjunction with curtains to give any room a more lavish feel.
Made to Measure Curtains
For full-on luxury you can’t beat going down the bespoke route, custom made curtains aren’t cheap, but they will make any room look elegant and unique. Made to measure curtains offer you several options when it comes to headers, with everything from French Pleats to Waves available to you. If you fancy an opulent feel why not get a fullness of two where the width of your fabric is at least double the width of your pole.
Eyelet headers are one of the most popular choices when looking at ready-made curtains. This is because they tend to make for a much sleeker look. Most brass eyelets for example are about 40mm in diameter, so make sure you check this before ordering your curtain pole that it goes with your curtains.
Why Not Add a Pelmet
Fitting a curtain valance can make an attractive addition to any window without breaking the bank. A pelmet will also help hide away any unsightly curtain rails. Adding a valance in the matching fabric can give your curtains a fuller and more sumptuous appearance and enhance the look of your room.
These are just five ways you can improve the look of any window space and there are lots of others, meaning that it doesn’t need to cost a fortune to dress your windows stylishly and appealingly.
