Our top tips for choosing the right window treatment
Decide on your style
Some window treatments are better suited to certain interior styles than others. Consider which look you are going for – classic, contemporary, hamptons, beach, rustic, industrial, shabby-chic – the list goes on and on… and research which window treatment best suits your unique style by browsing sites such as Pinterest. The style may also determine if you go with face mounted or recess fit options.
Get the colours right
Take the time to request samples or swatches so you can see how they look in your home. At Simply Shutters we will happily supply these for you. If you have cool white walls, a warm white window treatment may look yellowish and vice versa, if you have warm white walls and use a cool white fabric on your windows, you may find they look bluish.
Textures and patterns can add some zing, so why not request a few samples outside your comfort zone to see how they look in your home too – you never know!
Decide on the finer details
Once you know the option you’re going with and the colour or finish, it’s time to make all the small decisions that can have a big impact – face mounted or recessed; left or right control; chain, cord, cordless or wand control; track colour; base rail colour… Again, the research you did into your interior style will help you make these decisions, and we are here to help you the whole way.
