How window dressings transform a room

Owner from Curtain Clean Bop Ltd

We love everything about decorating a room but there’s something really special about window dressings. They’re like the icing on the décor cake, whether the look is curtains with a dominant pattern and bright colours or barely-there neutrals in soft shades, or anything in between, ranging from shutters to blinds.

Window dressings transform rooms in many ways. The most noticeable is by softening the edges of a space, especially if you’re using ‘soft’ window treatments made in fabric. ‘Hard’ window dressings (those made from hard materials), such as shutters and blinds can soften a space to an extent, but the overall look might require a few extra design tricks to lessen those hard lines. Moulded timber window frames around and above the shutters if your home is of the right vintage, can work well.

Whatever your personal style though, most of us require our window dressings to provide us with privacy. They also create layers of interest or warmth, complete the look in a room, provide a subtle background to let other elements shine, and protect furniture and soft furnishings from the harsh sun. So let’s explore our window dressing options:

Curtains
Curtains add elegance and texture too. If you’re looking to update a room and are happy with what’s already in the space in terms of furniture, choosing new curtains is a great way to go. Selecting new and relevant shades with on trend effects can then lead the way to refresh other soft furnishings such as cushions and upholstery.
