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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
