The Best Window Treatments for Your Small Spaces

Window treatments are an essential part of your interior design, and today we are exploring how your window treatments can help beautify your small spaces.

Something that people may not think of is that a small space will need a little bit more help to bring its potential out. But once it’s realized, it might become one of your favorite rooms. The way you dress your windows will have an impact on the entire atmosphere and will help make the room feel brighter, bigger, cozier, and more enjoyable which means you will take better advantage of the space.

Do you feel like your current room is too dark, too cluttered, is missing personality, or you just want something fresh? Your new window treatments can help you do just that! Let’s take a look at how we can beautify your room.

1. Versatility with Roman Shades or Roller Shades

Roman shades and roller shades are both great options for small rooms since they don’t take up much space and fit the windows tightly. They can both be versatile since you can choose from numerous fabric designs. For a small room, we recommend either a plain color that is similar to the colors of the walls or a small repetitive pattern. Bigger patterns will make your room feel even smaller.

2. Simplicity with Wood Blinds

Wood blinds help you bring style to the room while keeping it simple! They dress up the windows nicely while letting a lot of light in when they are folded up; they always provide a neat effect. When looking at the price, take into consideration that they are a permanent addition to your home. They also provide a nice look from the outside as well as extra privacy which will increase the value of the property. Their durability makes them a great long-term investment.

3. Maximum Effect with Drapery

We tend to think that we should minimize everything in small rooms. However, having a big piece of decoration and full-length drapery will help you make the space look bigger and will enhance the personality of the design.

4. Flowy Style with Sheers

Sheers are a great choice for a small room as they create an airy feel and make the room feel lighter. Be mindful that sheers won’t block out the light or provide much privacy. If you require more privacy, you will want to layer them over another window treatment.

5. Natural Look with Faux Wood Blinds

Faux wood blinds are a great alternative that is durable and cheaper than wood while giving you the same natural look. A trick to make the windows look taller is to install the blinds above the actual frames. This look will provide warmth and comfort to the room. Having other pieces of furniture or decoration in the same wood color will help create a nice natural-feeling atmosphere.

A few more tips to keep in mind:

  • Make sure to get the exact measurements before selecting your window treatments. An error in measuring can create pricey mistakes. Also note the correct distance from the window to the floor.
  • Minimize the space your window treatments take once they are open and opt for ones that let in as much light as possible. You will want as much natural light as you can, especially in small rooms.
  • Selecting light, airy colors for your window treatments and walls will make your space feel brighter and bigger.
  • If your shades or curtains have a pattern, avoid big ones and opt a small pattern instead. Repeat that pattern somewhere else in the room. For example, on pillows or a bed cover.
  • Having a similar color on both your walls and window treatments will help the windows and walls to mesh well together, which will make the room feel bigger.
  • When in doubt, keep it simple. A small room will benefit from more minimalist design.
  • Make all the window treatments in the room the same so it doesn’t overwhelm the eyes.
