Ways You Can Cover Different Sized Windows In The Same Room In St. George

June 07, 2021

Nearly all rooms have typical rectangular windows that make it simple to buy identical window treatments. But sometimes a space has various sized or shaped windows that make searching for window treatments a challenge. When you need to cover different sized windows in the same room in St. George, you can use identical styles, neutral hues, and layering to create consistency. Or use different treatments to split up an area or to emphasize an exceptional window.

Cover Different Sized St. George Windows In The Same Room With Identical Window Treatments

The best way to create a uniform look for a room’s ill-matched windows is to use the same window treatment style on them. This styling trick removes the focus from their different sizes and achieves balance in the room. To do this correctly, use a kind of custom-made window treatments that works on every window size and shape, like plantation shutters.

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

Help Mismatched Windows Not Stick Out With Neutral Colored Treatments

Neutral-colored window treatments work best when you cover different sized/shaped windows in the same room in St. George. Neutrals like browns, beige, or white are calming and help balance asymmetrical features. Subdued colored window treatments let windows blend into your interior design so that their conflicting sizes don’t stand out as much.

Neutral palettes present lots of flexibility. You can 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 white or natural wood 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 variations as well. If a room’s windows aren’t vastly different sizes, hang curtains at the same height for all of them to create the illusion that your windows are the same.

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

Mix Window Treatments To Highlight Windows Or Break Up A Room

You might come across scenarios where you don’t want identical window treatments. If you have an open floor plan, you can use different window treatments to designate specific areas. You might put up plantation shutters to keep out sunlight where you watch television and beautiful Roman shades across the room next to the dining table.

You might also want to highlight an exceptional window, like a bow or a bay window, with patterned shades that go with solid-colored shades in the rest of the space. Or use custom-made shutters on a circular window that you don’t want to obscure behind a shade or blind like you use on rectangular windows.
