Or, make a bold statement?

That’s why we have put together a few points to help inspire you when designing your own window treatments. If you want your windows to best complement your home, be sure to keep reading to discover some great inspiration:

  • Just the right length. There are quite a few elements that must be considered when choosing your window treatments, one of the most important details being your panel length. Something to watch for are panels that are too short. This can be the equivalent to high water pants, or long sleeves that sit just above your wrists. They are unflattering and not at all stylish. Your panels should be fitting for the length of your windows. However, for long panels, it is important that you don’t let them drag along the floor.

  • A fitting rod. If you prefer to suspend your curtains or drapes upon a rod, then that is another detail that you must consider for your window treatments. Most importantly, you must consider the size. If your home features narrow or thin windows, then your rod must complement them with a thinner dimension. On the other hand, if you have very large windows, you will need a more heavy-duty rod. In addition, rods can be discovered with designer details, which should complement the style of your space.

  • Placing your tiebacks. For those bright, cheery days, you will likely want to let in some natural light. To do so with window treatments, you will need tie backs. As you go to install them, you may wonder about how to properly place them. Contrary to what you may first imagine, tiebacks are not supposed to be placed in the middle, as they will cut the panel in half. For a more aesthetically pleasing placement, consider either one-third or two-thirds up your panels.
