Ways You Can Cover Different Sized Windows In The Same Room In Sacramento

June 07, 2021

Nearly all rooms have ordinary rectangular windows that make it straightforward to buy matching window treatments. But once in a while a space has various sized or shaped windows that make shopping for window treatments harder. When you have to cover different sized windows in the same room in Sacramento, you can use identical styles, neutral colors, and layering to create consistency. Or use distinct treatments to divide a room or to emphasize an unusual window.

Cover Different Sized Sacramento Windows In The Same Room With Identical Window Treatments

The best way to create a harmonious appearance for a room’s different-sized windows is by using a single window treatment style on them. This design trick takes the focus from their varying sizes and creates harmony in the room. To do this right, use a kind of custom window treatments that works with every window size and shape, such as plantation shutters.

Plantation shutters have panels of stacked louvers made of faux wood or hardwood. In contrast to blinds and shades, you can have shutters custom-fitted to any window shape and still open and close them. Both faux wood Polywood® shutters and real wood shutters are durable enough to use in most rooms in your Sacramento house.

Help Mismatched Windows Not Stick Out With Neutral Colored Treatments

Neutral-colored window treatments work better when you cover different sized/shaped windows in the same room in Sacramento. Neutrals like beige, browns, or white are tranquil and help unify unsymmetrical features. Subdued colored window treatments make windows blend into your decor so that their various sizes don’t stand out as much.

Neutral palettes present a lot of flexibility. You could use white or beige roller shades for a minimalist aesthetic. Or give a touch of elegance to a formal room with ivory or gray Roman shades. And plantation shutters in a natural wood or white color complement any type of decor.

Hide Different Sized Windows With Layered Window Treatments

You can cover different sized windows in the same room with layered window treatments to hide their size disparity as well. If a room’s windows aren’t very different sizes, hang curtains at identical heights for each of them to make it appear that your windows are all alike.

Then layer the curtains on top of textured woven fiber shades or plantation shutters to give dimension to your windows and distract from their varying sizes.

Mix Window Treatments To Highlight Windows Or Break Up A Room

You might have occasions where you don’t want identical window treatments. You can use separate window treatments to designate specific areas if you have an open floor plan. You might put up plantation shutters to block sunlight where you watch TV and graceful Roman shades across the room by the supper table.

You might also want to highlight a singular window, like a a bay or a bow window, with patterned shades that work with single-colored shades throughout the remaining space. Or use custom-fitted shutters for a circle window that you don’t want to hide behind a blind or shade like you use on rectangular windows.
