All Window Treatments

If you want to make a scene, dress up your windows, transform a space or create an intimate environment, there are plenty of inspirational ideas for revitalizing your living space among all of the window treatments from west elm. When choosing curtains and drapes solid colors are an excellent way to make a bold statement, adding some character to a mundane space or making a window into a feature. Solid colors are particularly good for bringing balance to a room that already has patterned walls, floors or furnishings, where using drapes with graphic prints would result in a busy look. To create a cohesive theme that has the wow factor, introduce curtains that prominently feature a color found in other areas of the room. For example, use yellow curtains in a room with a yellow patterned rug and yellow throw pillows for a great visual impact that is vibrant and fun. For a more intimate setting, blackout curtains are a good choice. These drapes often look like normal decorative window treatments, but they have multiple layers of tightly woven fabric that provide protection from bright light and extremes of temperature. By employing blackout curtains in a guest room, it is possible to maintain a cool, welcoming environment that ensures visitors get a wonderful night’s sleep. With the right choice of window treatments, it is possible to control the mood in each room of your house, tying together themes and elements to create a welcoming and stylish environment.
