5 Ways To Add Wow Factor To Your Windows
Whether or not you have a room with a view, you can create a real focal point of your windows, enhancing their charm with a considered choice of curtains. As well as adding personality, homeliness and a strong aesthetic to a room, your choice of curtain fabric can have a huge impact on the mood you’re trying to create.
Whether you need curtains for a calm bedroom setting or are trying to add interest to a dining room, we’ll help you find the inspiration to get you started. As leaders in exceptional fabric design for over sixty years, we have plenty of insight into creative curtain ideas that can transform a room in all the right ways.
If you have beautiful, large windows, perhaps on a period property, then making them a main feature can sometimes mean keeping your window dressing as simple as possible. Likewise if you have small windows, adding heavy, dark curtains will only make them appear smaller, so go for fabrics that enhance natural light. This can be done by choosing fabrics with yarns that shimmer, or by picking a fabric that’s semi-translucent.
The effect you want to create is simple but stunning, making the curtains almost blend into the rest of the room, while keeping the splendour of your windows perfectly intact. A sheer fabric like KAI’s Crystalline collection make an ideal choice – allowing light to enter the room while creating a subtle divide between the indoors and outdoors, adding cosiness without compromising on light.
To make a bold statement, iconic fabrics and designs will instantly bring a new character to your room. Try eye catching colours or patterns like Orla Kiely’s multi-stem print in a single shade like orange or to add retro appeal, pair fabrics in contrasting colours – try the Cole collection for a range of rich vibrant hues. Alternatively, pick and mix eclectic prints to craft a bohemian mood that’s still in tune with the trends.
