How You Can Cover Different Sized Windows In The Same Room In Boise

June 07, 2021

Nearly all rooms have typical rectangle windows that make it easy to get identical window treatments. But sometimes a room has various sized or shaped windows that make selecting window treatments difficult. If you have to cover different sized windows in the same room in Boise, you can use the same style, neutral colors, and layering to create uniformity. Or use distinct treatments to split up an area or to spotlight a unique window.

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

The best method to create a uniform design for a space’s inconsistent windows is to use a single style of window treatment on them. This styling trick takes the focus from their varying sizes and creates balance in the room. To do this correctly, use a kind of custom window treatments that works with all window sizes and shapes, such as plantation shutters.

Plantation shutters have panels of stacked louvers made of hardwood or faux wood. In contrast to blinds and shades, you can get shutters custom-fitted for 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 Boise home.

Make Mismatched Windows Not Stick Out With Neutral Colored Treatments

Neutral-colored window treatments look better when you cover different sized/shaped windows in the same room in Boise. Neutrals like white, browns, or beige are calming and help balance awkward features. Neutral colored window treatments make windows blend into your interior design so that their various sizes don’t stand out so much.

Neutral palettes give a lot of flexibility. You could use white or beige roller shades for a minimalist look. Or give a touch of elegance to a formal room with ivory or gray Roman shades. And interior shutters with a natural wood or white hue coordinate with any type of decor.

Hide Different Sized Windows With Layered Window Treatments

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

Then layer the curtains on top of textured woven fiber shades or interior shutters to give interest to your windows and distract from their mismatched sizes.

Highlight Windows Or Break Up A Room By Mixing Window Treatments

You might have occasions where you don’t want identical window treatments. If you have an open floor plan, you can utilize separate window treatments to designate specific areas. You might put up plantation shutters to block sunlight where you watch television and elegant Roman shades across the room next to the supper table.

You might also want to spotlight a unique window, like a bow or a bay window, with patterned shades that go with single-colored shades in the rest of the space. Or use custom shutters for a round window that you don’t want to obscure behind a shade or blind like you put on rectangular windows.
