Any home will benefit from a great-looking bedroom window treatment. It doesn’t only add to the aesthetics, it also helps create the proper ambience. Using just a little bit of inspiration and some thought, you can create a whole new look for your bedroom window.
So whether you’re using blinds, curtains or shutters, here are some ideas you can use to create a picture-perfect window:
#1. Consider what you need
Your bedroom window is a very important part of your home. It lets in light and it also provides you with the necessary privacy. Consider these two factors when choosing your window treatment.
Do you want lots of light in your bedroom or do you prefer a semi-dim look that lets you rest and relax more? Is privacy a concern? Will you be seen outside on the street or is your bedroom window the kind that lets you allow full view without worrying about being seen by strangers? Think about these considerations before you choose your window treatment.
#2. Consider your bedroom window size
If you have small windows, don’t dwarf them with large or horizontal prints. Use light shades or pastel colors to create more space – dark colors tend to make things look smaller.
If the window is too narrow, use light-colored curtains or panels tied back to the sides. This effect helps bring the vision outward, making the window look wider than it truly is. No matter how unattractive a bare bedroom window is, you can make it look terrific by playing on lines and colors effectively.
#3. Use color
Color shouldn’t scare you away from the prospect of creating an effective bedroom window treatment. It’s okay to play it safe, but it will keep you from exploring the different possibilities you can use. Mix one neutral color with another one or if you’re unsure, there’s a kindergarten tool you can use – the color wheel.
Choose a color you like and then refer to the color wheel for another one. If you want another color that is close to the color of your choice, refer to the colors next to your choice. If you want a terrific-looking contrast, use the complementary color located on the opposite side of the color wheel.
