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

June 07, 2021

Nearly all rooms have typical rectangular windows that make it easy to get matching window treatments. But occasionally a room has various shaped or sized windows that make selecting window treatments challenging. If you need to cover different sized windows in the same room in Hartford, you can use the same style, neutral colors, and layering to create consistency. Or use separate treatments to split up a room or to highlight a special window.

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

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

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

Make Clashing 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 Hartford. Neutrals like browns, white, or beige are calming and help balance unsymmetrical features. Neutral colored window treatments make windows fade into your interior design so that their different sizes don’t clash as much.

Neutral palettes present plenty of versatility. You could use white or beige roller shades for a minimalist look. Or give a bit of sophistication to a formal room with gray or ivory Roman shades. And interior shutters in a white or natural wood hue coordinate with any type of decor.

Disguise Different Sized Windows With Layered Window Treatments

You may cover different sized windows in the same room with layered window treatments to hide their irregularities as well. If a room’s windows aren’t vastly 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 on top of textured woven fiber shades or interior shutters to give depth to your windows and draw attention away from their different sizes.

Mix Window Treatments To Highlight Windows Or Break Up A Room

You might come across situations 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 might put up interior shutters to keep out sunlight where you watch television and beautiful Roman shades across the room by the dinner table.

You may also want to highlight a singular window, like a a bay or a bow window, with patterned shades that go with solid-colored shades in the remaining space. Or use custom shutters for a circular window that you don’t want to conceal behind a shade or blind like you put on rectangle windows.
