The windows in your home are your connection to the outside world, and how you choose to dress them speaks volumes about your interior design style. Leaving them uncovered is a sleek, modern look for those who live in wooded or isolated areas. If curtains are too fussy for your minimalist furnishings and blinds are too blah for your modern taste, plenty of alternatives are available.
Wood cornices are one of the most classic window treatment ideas, but they are often overlooked as an option in contemporary homes because of their traditional nature. Used alone, however, cornices can create a sleek, modern look. Though they can be paired with curtains, stained or painted, wood boxes are perfect for the kitchen and bath, where fabric can succumb to water damage. These are best built by a skilled carpenter for a custom fit, so they can be expensive if you aren’t handy. Cornices hide curtain hardware and blend well with luxurious detailing, like crown molding, to give your home a gracious, regal look.
Some of the different materials they are made out of are vinyl, metal, and wood. These can be a very versatile and functional piece in your home decoration plan. Probably one of the most widely used dressings for your windows that are customized are drapes and curtains. You can easily string these up right over the top your blinds or shades. If you have anything in your house that you like you can easily match the curtains to it. If there is some particular style that you fancy, this can easily be accomplished.
The options for window treatments are endless and cross many price points. It is best to spend moderately on the best quality you can afford. Avoid flimsy curtains and ones that are unlined, these are two telltale signs of poor quality. Sure, the price might be nice, but you want your room to look elegant and expensive, right? Instead of buying them right off the rack at the local home store, find a selection at a specialty fabric store. Their experts can help you create window treatments with in your budget that will look like you spent a lot more for them. Once you have picked out your curtains, hang them as close to the ceiling as you can to draw your eye up and project the illusion of fullness. Curtains hung just above the window tend to look sparse.
