Design Considerations for your Windows
For many years, curtains and blinds have been neglected when it comes to interior designing a new house. This is also sometimes due to budgetary constraints. The curtains and blinds need to be looked at in design terms, as they influence the design of any given room.
Houses nowadays have large windows. It is best if the curtains and blinds were selected at the very beginning of the design stage. Combining the right choices in color and design ensures that the overall design of the house is on point.
White colored curtains and blinds seem to be the default setting. It is the most versatile and timeless color. Most window designs rhyme with it. 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.
Their choices also consider the rest of the furniture and other decorations in a room, to follow a certain theme. The blinds can be chosen to be either laid back or stand out.
When it comes to curtains, there is now a wider choice to pick from, where you find flamboyant embroidered and patterned fabrics with rich draping. There are minimally designed choices as well. The curtains and blinds can also be hanged in different kinds of cast metal rings and rails.
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. Rooms that have enough light throughout can do with toned down curtain designs.
You can also use curtains and blinds to manipulate how a given room is perceived, especially when that room has a particular shortcoming. Vertical blinds have been known to give a room with a low ceiling a feeling of expansion. The same effect is achieved by lengthy curtains that touch the floor.
Hiring a professional decorator ensures your windows and its curtains and blinds are never neglected when design choices are being made. This is the way to ensure you end up with the best designed windows. If the room has a scenic view of the outside, this will be even more appealing. If the view outside is boring, the choice of curtains will mask it and enhance the appeal of the room even more.
