Five Ideas for Warming up Your Space this Season with Window Coverings

As the countdown to the holiday season has officially started, many of us are looking to finish off the look our homes to get ready for entertaining and welcome guests. To pull together a polished look in your home, you will need to start planning now as window coverings can take between 2 weeks to over 4 weeks to be custom made and ready for installation. Here are five ideas to warm up your space with window coverings.

 

Tip #1: Layer window Treatments for a luxurious look and to create warmth

 

Our favourite look is seeing Roman Shades layered with drapery on top to give the room depth and interest. The drapery heightens your room by bringing your eye upwards and is a great way to anchor any space. You can have decorative panels that are stationary on the sides purely for looks and to bring in colour or texture into the room.

 

The Roman Shade in a window frame provides the functionality of privacy and light control in a tone-on-tone coordinating grey. Having layered window coverings also will help you with energy efficiency, so if you have drafty windows, this is certainly going to make your space warmer as well.

Tip #2: Don't be afraid of using pattern

The great thing about using window coverings with pattern is that it is retractable, so you can have a dramatic look when it's down, or minimize the pattern when you have the window covering up.

Tip #3: Don't be afraid of dark colours

 

Darker colours will help to create an inviting feel and draw people into a space. It also makes a larger space feel cozy. If you have neutral coloured furniture, having dark window coverings as a backdrop will really allow your sofa to stand out in the room.

Tip #4: Choose Energy Efficient Shades

 

Did you know that cellular honeycomb shades have the highest insulation factor for window coverings?  The pockets in your cellular honeycomb blinds trap the cold and diffuse it before it even enters your house. This will keep the chill out where it belongs. The cellular honeycomb shades come in light filtering or blackout. And the best part is that you can do a top-down bottom up application to get privacy but still enjoy natural light and see the sky and trees without feeling like you are in a fishbowl to people passing by.

Tip #5: Add texture and bring nature indoors

 

Using woven wood blinds that are made of grasses, bamboo and reeds adds texture and warmth to your space. To give the woven wood blinds a modern feel, you can pair it with a sleeker drapery style.
