Choosing window treatments for your new windows often creates a dilemma of whether to cover or not. Now that you have beautiful new windows you don’t want to cover them up. However, sometimes it’s a necessity if you have neighbors nearby or just want to add a bit of softness to cozy up a room.
Window coverings can be both functional and decorative. Here are a few ideas to help create the perfect balance without hiding your new windows.
- If your home is lacking in windows overall, don’t choose a heavy drape. Instead, go for a sheer panel to maximize light and keep the room feeling open. Designer tip: If your windows are smaller and you want to create length, hang the curtains several inches above the window.
- Opt for rattan blinds to let a little natural light shine in, but still maintain some privacy. Rattan blinds add texture and warmth to a room giving it that designer’s touch.
- The classic white shutters or wood blinds never go out of style. The wide slats allow for privacy when closed and tons of light when open. This style is timeless and goes with just about any interior space.
- There are many window treatment options for your new windows, but sometimes it’s nice just to leave them bare. Windows can be the focal point of a room, especially if It is a room with a view, so don’t be afraid to let them stand on their own, uncovered.
