If you are looking for a way to make your space more comfortable and elevate its design at the same time, we at Discover Interiors encourage you to upgrade your window treatments. The right combination of curtains, drapes, shades, or blinds will go a long way to enhancing your overall design, and they will help regulate the temperature as well as protect your privacy. In this article, we’ll provide three expert tips for designing window treatments for your home.
- Consider Placement – One key to good window treatment design is to get the placement right. Instead of hanging your curtains just above the windows, we recommend placing the curtain rods about 12” above the top of the frame and extending the drapes at least a few inches outside the width of the frame, too. This will make your space feel bigger and more elegant.
- Use Multiple Layers – We also recommend using multiple layers in your window treatments. For example, it’s smart to have a sheer curtain to cover your windows at all times, as this layer will cut glare and protect your privacy. Then, you can also hang heavier drapes on the sides to make a bold design statement and close these when necessary to block light or improve the insulation.
- Go Custom – For best results, we recommend investing in custom window treatments rather than buying pre-made options from a store. Our team will cut your fabric, shades, or blinds to fit your windows exactly, and we will use only the highest-quality materials to ensure your new treatments last for years to come.
