Your home may be full of furniture, but a room, especially a bedroom, will still look empty without a proper set of curtains in front of your windows. There are many companies that can provide you with window dressing. Read honest reviews of one of those companies, Woodyatt Curtains here. But what kind of choices do you have when it comes to window dressing? Here are some tips and options for your home.
Curtains are the kind of window dressing that you use when you want to darken a room. That is the reason why curtains often have a dark colour. There are even some special blackout curtains for your bedroom so you can sleep in total darkness. Curtains for your living room are available in all shapes and sizes and the best option is to choose one that matches the fabric of your sofa and chairs. Avoid prints in many colours because they will scream for attention and make your room seem small. Unicolour curtains with perhaps a light pattern will make your room more inviting.
Special attention is due for veil curtains. These curtains are a special kind of curtains because they are not meant to darken a room. They do help if you want to keep out the full brightness of the sun, but they will not make a room dark. Restaurants and bars hang them to give their customers a bit of privacy and that is what these curtains are meant to do. You can hang them in your living room and kitchen if you don’t want your room to be a window display for people on the street. The benefit of these curtains is that they are often white or beige and still thin enough to let some light enter your living room.
Blinds enable you to decide how much light will enter the room via your window. The blinders can be shut or opened and you can pull it up or down and anywhere in between if you want a bit of privacy. You will see how is passing by your window, but they won’t be able to see you or your living room. Blinds can come in many colours and, like curtains, it’s important to choose a neutral colour (white, beige, grey, light brown) or one that matches your interior.
You can add shutters on the outside of your windows. Shutters are considered classical window treatment and service a double function. On the one hand, they discourage passersby to look into your living room. On the other hand, they keep out the cold on chilly winter days. Keeping out the cold is what they were originally made for even though now they are mostly a nostalgic kind of decoration that is added to a window just for fun. They can be combined with other kinds of window dressing such as blinds and curtains.
Now you have a few options that you can consider when your old window dressing needs to be replaced.
