Can You Mix Window Treatments in Your Home?

Does your Everett, Snohomish or Mill Creek home have different sized or shaped windows in the same room? Does your furniture take up more space near one window than the other? Or maybe you have a very open home, with several rooms flowing together, each having different window needs. You may not necessarily want the same type of window treatment for every window, but still want some type of symmetry...so, can you mix window treatments? Absolutely. Budget Blinds of Snohomish County has tips on how to keep your windows complimenting each other, while still mixing up the window treatment variety.

Keep It Neutral But Mix Up The Treatments

Keeping your window treatments a neutral color across the board will help tie them together no matter what kind of style you choose for each window. Maybe you're working on a bedroom with two windows near the bed, and one larger window across the room. You could use roman shades near the bed, and drapes on the large window, but keep the colors the same to bring unity to the space. With so many window treatment styles, the combinations of mixtures are multiplied. Whether you're mixing drapes and sheer panels, shutters and blinds, or shutters and shades, keeping them neutral is one of the easiest ways to match...without matching.

Contrast Colors

Not a neutral fan and need a little more flare in your life? You can still mix up your window treatments while adding some spark. We suggest having a flow of several similar treatments (i.e. identical roller shades or shutters), with one eye candy piece that is different from the rest. Maybe you have a larger window or a sliding glass door where you can add some bright drapes to highlight the room.

Play With Patterns
If you decide to have more colorful window treatments, choose a similar solid color among several windows, while showcasing one or two windows with a patterned window treatment in the same or complementary color. Using bright prints or patterned fabric among solid blocks of color create a focal point for the area. Again, you can mix up different kinds of shades (roller, roman, cellular) with drapes or shutters. Sometimes, even simply adding a valance makes a huge difference while styling a room.

Line Up Treatments

Regardless of colors, patterns, window shapes and sizes - it's important to keep the look symmetrical. This includes taking height placement into consideration. To make your room easier on the eye, have your window treatments top heights match one another. This will streamline the room, even if the window treatments themselves are different.

There's always a way to bring your vision to reality. You never have to color inside the lines or follow the rules.
