How To Cover Different Sized Windows In The Same Room In San Antonio

June 07, 2021

Most rooms have typical rectangle windows that make it easy to get identical window treatments. But occasionally a room has mismatched shaped or sized windows that make shopping for window treatments challenging. If you need to cover different sized windows in the same room in San Antonio, you can use identical styles, neutral colors, and layering to create uniformity. Or use distinct treatments to split up a room or to accentuate an exceptional window.

Cover Different Sized San Antonio Windows In The Same Room With Identical Window Treatments

The best method to give a space’s inconsistent windows a cohesive aesthetic is by using the same window treatment style on them. This decorating trick takes the focus off of their varying sizes and creates harmony in the room. To do it right, use a style of custom window treatments that works with every window size and shape, such as plantation shutters.

Plantation shutters have panels with a row of louvers made of faux wood or hardwood. In contrast to shades and blinds, you can have shutters custom-fitted to any window shape and continue to open and close them. Both real wood shutters and faux wood Polywood® shutters are strong enough to use in most rooms of your San Antonio house.

Help Ill-matched Windows Blend In With Neutral Colored Treatments

When you cover different sized/shaped windows in the same room in San Antonio, neutral colored window treatments work best. Neutrals like browns, beige, or white are tranquil and help create equilibrium between asymmetrical features. Subdued colored window treatments make windows fade into your interior design so that their various sizes don’t clash as much.

Soft palettes offer lots of flexibility. You can use white or beige roller shades for a minimalist aesthetic. Or give a touch of refinement to a formal room with ivory or gray Roman shades. And interior shutters in a white or natural wood shade match all types of decor.

Disguise Different Sized Windows With Layered Window Treatments

You can also cover different sized windows in the same room with layered window treatments to hide their size disparity. If a room’s window sizes aren’t very different, hang curtains at identical heights for all of them to create the illusion that your windows are all alike.

Then layer the curtains on top of textured woven fiber shades or interior shutters to give interest to your windows and distract from their mismatched sizes.

Highlight Windows Or Break Up A Room By Mixing Window Treatments

You might find scenarios where you don’t want identical window treatments. You can utilize dissimilar window treatments to assign specific areas if you have an open floor plan. You could put up interior shutters to keep out light where you watch television and beautiful Roman shades across the room next to the supper table.

You may additionally want to show off an exceptional window, like a bow or a bay window, with patterned shades that go with single-colored shades in the remaining space. Or use custom shutters on a round window that you don’t want to hide behind a shade or blind like you put on rectangular windows.
