1. Choose the Material
Depending on the look you want, you can choose different materials for your blinds and shades: wood, metal, and plastic, to name a few. Wood and organic materials create a more traditional and natural ambiance, while metal can modernize your space.
For curtains, the fabric can make or break a room. Designers often opt for simplicity of design but elegance of fabric. If you’re leaning toward a luxurious style, for instance, imagine beaded tassels and lavish embellishments on every element of the window. If your tastes are simpler, cotton is a perfect go-to fabric that is sure to please.
2. Pick the Right Hardware For Curtains
With the trend toward “green” environments, naturally made hardware is making its return. Bamboo, wood and natural materials are now replacing sparkly and man-made hardware because people are opting for sustainable products. Handcrafted hardware can be the perfect complement to beautiful fabric and room accessories. If wood hardware isn’t for you, metal drapery hardware can look equally stunning when paired with compatible colors.
3. Optimize Natural Light
Bamboo shades are great for letting in dispersed light and maintaining privacy. Soft, lightweight fabrics that do not completely block out natural light are are also a fine choice for curtains and can be fun to mix up with different patterns. Whites with delicate patterns, yellows, and light blues are always welcome in rooms that may need a little extra brightness.
Now you can create beautiful window treatments with more confidence!
