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

June 07, 2021

Almost all rooms have ordinary rectangle windows that make it simple to buy matching window treatments. But sometimes a space has various sized or shaped windows that make selecting window treatments a challenge. When you want to cover different sized windows in the same room in Seattle, you can rely on identical styles, neutral colors, and layering to create uniformity. Or use separate treatments to split up an area or to spotlight a special window.

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

The best method to create a harmonious aesthetic for a room’s different-sized windows is to use a single window treatment style on them. This decorating trick removes the focus from their varying sizes and creates symmetry in the room. To do it properly, use a style of custom window treatments that works for all window sizes and shapes, such as plantation shutters.

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

Make Mismatched 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 Seattle. Neutrals like white, browns, or beige are calming and help unify unsymmetrical features. Neutral colored window treatments let windows fade into your interior design so that their various sizes don’t stand out as much.

Muted palettes give lots of versatility. You can use beige or white roller shades for a minimalist look. Or give a bit of elegance to a formal room with gray or ivory Roman shades. And plantation shutters with a white or natural wood hue match any type of decor.

Hide Varying 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 very different sizes, hang curtains at identical heights for all of them to create the illusion that your windows are the same.

Then layer the curtains over textured woven fiber shades or interior shutters to give dimension to your windows and distract from their different sizes.

Show Off Windows Or Break Up A Room By Mixing Window Treatments

You might have scenarios when you don’t want identical window treatments. If you have an open floor plan, you can use different window treatments to assign specific areas. You could use interior shutters to block sunlight where you watch TV and beautiful Roman shades across the room next to the dinner table.

You may also want to highlight a special window, like a a bay or a bow window, with patterned shades that go with solid-colored shades throughout the remaining 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 rectangle windows.
