Colors and prints, as well as the amount of light entering a room and the materials you choose can all affect the mood of a room and the overall ambience of your home. Your personal, professional Window Expressions design consultant can help you choose everything from patterns to styles that will best compliment your home. Plus, here are some tips for choosing the right window treatments to suit your purpose…
You can attract attention to your windows with window treatments in bold colors and striking patterns. Drawing the eye to a window with your window treatments by creating a focal point at the end of a narrow room can make that room appear wider. Also, shifting the focus of a room’s visitors upward toward windows can create the illusion of a room with more height that it actually has.
If you would like to soften the feel of a room, you can do it with filtered light and blinds or curtains in lighter shades. Lighter colors, such as whites, can also make a room appear larger. If white is a bit too stark for your taste, light taupe and cool grey can have a similar effect.
Yellows and pinks can add some cheer to a room; soft, cool colors such as light blue, can have a calming effect; while darker colors, such as forest green and navy, will appear more formal. Window treatments with tight, more detailed prints can make a room appear smaller, so it is best to reserve these for larger rooms where you might like to add more of a cozy appeal.
