What Window Treatment Style Suits You?

Window treatments are the perfect way to finish off the look of a room, but it can be difficult to make a decision unless you know what style suits you. Before you deck out those windows, it’s important to know what window treatments are out there to choose from. Here we’ll take a look at three popular styles that might work well for you and your space: traditional, contemporary and transitional.

Traditional Window Treatments

When it comes to traditional window treatments, it’s all about the details. This style, which reflects 18th century English, 19th century neoclassic, French country and British Colonial revival, are often muted fabrics in simple solids, stripes, plaids or florals in mid-tone colors. Known to be decorative, traditional window treatments don’t have to be grand. Soft, patterned roman shades or simple, solid-colored box pleat drapes can be just as appealing as grand swags and fabric trimmed in tassels.

Contemporary Drapery

Clean, sleek lines and muted neutrals accompanied by bold punches of color, make contemporary easy to spot. To play up contemporary architecture, go for long window treatments that will draw the eye upward and minimize (or hide) the hanging systems. If you love the industrial look, grommet type drapes hung from stainless steel rods are ideal. Need some patterned added to the space? Do it by adding roman shades covered in geometric shapes.

Transitional Window Treatments

Transitional is perfect for those who just can’t decide between traditional and contemporary. Window treatments for a transitional setting generally focus on color, texture and pattern, giving you quite a few options when it comes to decking out your windows. Don’t be afraid to play with large-scale patterns and don’t forget to consider using the same fabric choice on different types of window treatments.

Things to Consider Before Buying Your Drapery

Before you make that final purchase don’t forget to evaluate your space and your own personal style. Be sure to take time out to examine fabric to see what colors, patterns and textures you prefer. A lot of times, your personal tastes in furniture fabrics makes it much easier to narrow down what you like in regards to window treatments. Also, think about the manipulation of the window treatment fabric. To elaborate, manipulation means things such as decorative elements (tassels, swags, ruffles, banding), pleating (butterfly, box, pinch, reverse pinch, pencil), hanging method (tab-top rings, grommets, hooks), and type (shade, curtain, cornice, valance and/or drapery panel).
