Decorating a room can be as simple as adding an attractive vase, a stylized area rug or even a beautiful piece of art. We tend to forget, however, that window coverings can also be a little “extra” that’s very easy to fit into your décor – even more so since they’re an essential addition most of the time.
Let’s start with the basics: How do you choose the right window covering?
- You first need to decide on the style you would like for your room: contemporary, country, traditional or eclectic*?
*Eclectic: A room done in eclectic style is a combination of various décors.
- Decide what you need based on factors like privacy, lighting, the existing décor, etc.
- Next, find the window covering that works best for you.
These are often under-estimated, since we think of the old aluminium blinds that used to be all the rage many years ago! Today, however, wooden blinds definitely have a decorative appeal that shouldn’t be dismissed. They’re just the thing for complete privacy with no light or for some privacy with the light from outdoors filtering into the room. Blinds are highly versatile and practical, since they go well with any style.
