Windows come in different sizes, shapes and construction. You can create illusions by using standard curtains or some of the other window dressings available today. Long drapes are more formal, short curtains tend to be a more casual sight. You can use many different styles to add to your interior decorating, such as country, with wide tidebacks and ruffles.
Curtains can help the following problems:
1. Small window – extend the rod beyond the window frame. This will create the image of a larger window. More light will be filtered through the opening.
2. Large window - Attach your rod in the normal position. Try using tiebacks on the curtains. Use a valance.
3. Short/Tall windows - For short windows attach your rod so it will be above the window frame. Taller windows will also appear shorter if you use a draped valance. It will soften the appearance of the window.
4. View – If your purpose is to hide the view, simply match the window color to your wall covering. It will reduce attention given to the window.
Today there are so many choices to go with - Vertical blinds, miniblinds, wood blinds, shades of all types. You can keep it simple or make it more compley by layering the materials. Investigate all the choices before you finish your room. If you give this some forethought, you can design your area in a way that makes it easy to change window dressings each season.
