How To Cover Different Sized Windows In The Same Room In Kingsport

June 07, 2021

Almost all rooms have typical rectangle windows that make it straightforward to get identical window treatments. But sometimes a room has mismatched sized or shaped windows that make selecting window treatments a challenge. When you have to cover different sized windows in the same room in Kingsport, you can use the same style, neutral hues, and layering to create consistency. Or use separate treatments to divide a room or to emphasize a singular window.

Cover Different Sized Kingsport Windows In The Same Room With Matching Window Treatments

The ideal way to give a room’s different-sized windows a uniform look is by using a single window treatment style on them. This decorating trick removes the focus from their varying sizes and achieves balance in the room. To do it right, use a kind of custom-made window treatments that works on all window sizes and shapes, like plantation shutters.

Plantation shutters have panels with a row of louvers made of hardwood or faux wood. In contrast to shades and blinds, you can have shutters custom-fitted for any window shape and still open and close them. Both real wood shutters and faux wood Polywood® shutters are sturdy enough to utilize in most rooms in your Kingsport house.

Help Clashing Windows Not Stick Out With Neutral Colored Treatments

Neutral-colored window treatments look best when you cover different sized/shaped windows in the same room in Kingsport. Neutrals like browns, beige, or white are soothing and help unify unbalanced features. Subdued colored window treatments make windows fade into your decor so that their various sizes don’t stick out so much.

Muted palettes offer plenty of flexibility. You can use white or beige roller shades for a minimalist aesthetic. Or add a touch of elegance to a formal room with gray or ivory Roman shades. And interior shutters in a natural wood or white shade match any type of decor.

Hide Inconsistently Sized Windows With Layered Window Treatments

You may cover different sized windows in the same room with layered window treatments to hide their variations as well. If a room’s windows aren’t vastly different sizes, install curtains at identical heights for each of them to make it appear that your windows are the same.

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

Emphasize Windows Or Break Up A Room By Mixing Window Treatments

You might come across situations where you don’t want identical window treatments. You can use separate window treatments to create specific areas if you have an open floor plan. You could put up plantation shutters to keep out light where you watch television and graceful Roman shades across the room next to the dining table.

You might also want to spotlight an unusual window, like a a bay or a bow window, with patterned shades that coordinate with solid-colored shades in the rest of the space. Or use custom-fitted shutters for a round window that you don’t want to conceal behind a blind or shade like you use on rectangle windows.
