Window Treatments: Designs to Consider


Decorating your home is all about choices but, while choices are great, they can also be a little overwhelming. In an effort to make your choices easier and more informed, we’ve put together a few style options that you have for window treatments.

 

Once you know which style will best fit your needs, you can customize to any texture or pattern you desire.

Window Treatments: Designs to Consider

Roman Shades: Roman shades allow you easy, vertical light control. Additionally, they add a multilayered look and can be fitted to any window height or width, as seen with the two windows above. (Pictured property: 2224 Gatsby Way, Carrollton)

 

Window Treatments: Designs to Consider

Multiple Panels on a Single Rod: The image above demonstrates a great way to bring a unified look to a wall of windows. Hanging multiple panels on one rod makes the windows feel like they’re one, which in turn makes your room feel larger. (Pictured property: 5410 Royal Crest Drive, Dallas)

 

Window Treatments: Designs to Consider

Valance: Hanging your curtains beneath a valance, whether it is wooden like the one above or made of fabric, makes any type of window treatment feel like an innate part of the room. Above, the valance mimics the room’s crown molding, therefore making the panels look as though they’ve always been there. (Pictured property: 2933 Shenandoah Drive, Frisco)

 

Window Treatments: Designs to Consider

High Hanging: Hanging your curtain rod just beneath your crown molding or ceiling makes for a dramatic look and feel. Above, the additional height of the curtains draws the eye up and makes the windows and room appear larger. (Pictured property: 6202 Eagle Nest Drive, Garland)

 

Window Treatments: Designs to ConsiderSheer Panels: If you already have great blinds or simply want to maintain the natural light you have, sheers are a great way to go. They add color, life, and a finishing touch to windows and the room as a whole. (Pictured property: 9929 Elmada Lane, Dallas)
