Getting the right window treatments for your bedroom can greatly impact the quality of your life. Your bedroom is supposed to be one of your favorite rooms, if not the number one favorite room in the house. It’s a place where you go to rest and to enjoy your partner’s company. The most important aspects of your bedroom are comfort and harmony.
Ensure Comfort And Privacy
If you are getting too much light or outside noise in your bedroom, this means you need new window treatments. Besides controlling the amount of light that can come in, window treatments should also ensure complete privacy. Nobody has to know what goes on in your bedroom.
If you decide to get curtains for your bedroom, we suggest that you go for the lined curtains (or blackout curtains) because they block more outside light and they fall more gracefully because they are a little heavier than unlined curtains. If you want to make the room look more light and airy, you can get unlined soft color curtains and combine them with a pair of shades. This way, you will ensure a beautiful, calming atmosphere, a stylish decoration, as well as light and temperature control and privacy.
Set The Mood
You might want to ensure a calming atmosphere by choosing the colors that match the color of your bedroom walls, your carpet or your bedding. On the other hand, you can choose to spice things up with a bold color choice and lined curtains. Try installing multiple layers of curtains that keep out the curious eyes and outside elements, while providing you with a nice view from the inside. This solution also packs a strong style statement.
Another style and functionality-related decision regarding the installation of window curtains is the type of curtain poles that are most suitable for your bedroom. There’s a variety of products, ranging from traditional wooden poles, all the way to bright and colorful poles and metallic finishes.
Reminder: if you have patterned furniture or carpet, don’t get curtains with a pattern. Go for simpler designs.
We have already said something about blackout curtains, but there are also blackout blinds that might work even better for your bedroom windows. Blackout blinds are roller blinds made from thick fabric. They are easy to install, can be built-in behind curtains, and come in many styles.
Wood blinds are also a good choice for added warmth, richness, and a classical look.
Another attractive choice is voile panels. Voile panels are very unusual and modern. They join at the top and bottom of the window, allowing some light to enter the room while ensuring privacy. This is an attractive feature that can be combined with corresponding window sill ornaments to complete the look.
We have saved a real treat for the end of this article. There’s a bonus feature you can get incorporated to your window treatment. You can motorize your drapes to control them with the click of a button and let the sun shine through in the morning or create privacy at night.
