For many years, curtains and blinds have been neglected when it comes to interior designing a new house. The budget could be to blame in some instances. Ideally, they should receive due attention, as they influence to a large extent how a room will look and feel.
Houses nowadays have large windows. The choice of which curtains and blinds to be installed should begin at the design stage of the units. Combining the right choices in color and design ensures that the overall design of the house is on point.
Many decorators go for white. It is the most versatile and timeless color. It blends well with most window designs. The different shades of white can be used to give each room a certain ambiance.
In today’s world, there is more interest in other color choices. There is more selection of colors and designs that are fresh, minimal, translucent with light colors, and differentiated for each room.
The variety of paint shades and fabric textures gives room for blending blinds and curtains with the furniture, to match a room’s light and mood. Blinds have an even wider selection.
Curtains now come in a wide range of choices of fabrics and colors and cuts. There are minimally designed choices as well. The curtains and blinds rails also come in different design choices.
You need to choose your curtains and blinds wisely, to reflect the kind of light you wish to have in a given room. Depending on the direction each room faces, you need to allow for enough light, to ensure the atmosphere is always conducive. Darker rooms need to be made lighter by the selected curtains and blinds. Well lit rooms could do with minimalistic designs on the curtains and blinds.
You can also use curtains and blinds to manipulate how a given room is perceived, especially when that room has a particular shortcoming. For instance, you can use vertical blinds to make a room that has a low ceiling the look of a room with a standard height ceiling and dimensions. This effect is also seen when the same room gets tall curtains installed, the kind that reach the floor, to give an appearance of a tall wall.
The best way to go about this is to hire an experienced decorator, who will see to it that the same attention that is given to other areas of your house’s decorations is the same attention that falls on the design of the windows. This is the way to ensure you end up with the best designed windows. The rooms that are facing a beautiful scenery will benefit when the design of the windows reflect this beauty. It is even more important to have a great window decoration for those rooms facing a boring landscape view.
