How To Create Curb Appeal With Window Coverings

Nothing makes a home look more shabby than having messy looking window treatments hanging in the windows.  From the viewpoint of curb appeal, how your window treatment looks from the outside is equally as important as how they look from the inside.  We want to show you how to enjoy your windows from the outside and how to create curb appeal with window coverings.

how to create curb appeal with window treatmentsMatching Window Treatments

Many people plan the window treatments in their home based on the outside look.  They decide to decorate their home with matching window treatments throughout the house.  I’ve seem homes where hardwood shutters are used in every room.  This gives a uniform look to the outside of the house.  Inside the shutters were adorned with soft treatments in some of the rooms to add some elegance and sophistication in areas where it added some style and warmth to the decor.  Windows in the kids bedrooms and baths were done in a matching faux wood because it was less expensive and more durable.  Many of Hunter Douglas Window fashions are designed to fit a variety of windows sizes so you can easily use the same window treatment everywhere.

Roman Shades

Roman Shades With Curb Appeal

Many of our window treatments by Hunter Douglas come with liners or are designed to create a good image from the outside.  Some store bought Roman shades aren’t designed with a good backing so you see bunches of fabric that doesn’t look very good.  It can really give your home a messy appearance from the outside of your home.  We work hard to make sure our window treatments not only fit perfectly and look great inside but we also take time to make sure the outside look is equally flattering.  After all, you may have more people noticing your house from the outside then seeing it from the inside.

Custom Drapery

When you design your home with custom drapery they are often made with good linings.  This not only creates a good view from the outside of your house but it also adds insulation to your windows.  Lining on a custom drapery also adds better shape to your window treatment and create a better overall look.  Custom drapery are designed with your style in mind and made to order.

What’s Your Decorating Goal?

Think about what you want your room to look like when you’re finished. Thinking about the finished effect will enable you to choose the right style of vertical blind or shade. For a modern, sleek style choose a vinyl or metallic blind. Our Hunter Douglas Skyline® Gliding window panels offer a unique way to cover your wide windows with large 17” panels. If you are looking for a more casual option you might like our Crosswinds® wood blinds or our Cadence® Soft verticals. If you really want to add an elegant window treatment, consider our breathtaking Luminette® Privacy Sheers featuring a soft vane with attached sheer.

Window treatments

How Will The Room Be Used?

Decide what your privacy and light needs are in the room you’re decorating. If you have a sunroom, you may prefer a sheer to a blind so that you can take advantage of diffused light while still protecting your furnishings from UV rays. If you’re decorating a bedroom however, you may want something with darker fabric or closer vanes to block the sun when you’re taking an afternoon nap or trying to sleep in on Saturdays.  Consider the other furnishing in the room and how they will look with your new window treatments.  Will they compliment the look or detract from it?

What’s Your Color Scheme

Once you decide the overall style décor and how much light you need, you can start thinking about your color scheme. Rethinking vertical blinds and shades gives you a multitude of color options including metallic, stains and geometric shapes and patterns.

Vertical blinds and shades are available in a wide range of colors. You can choose a neutral or a bold, bright hue. Color plays a big role in the ambiance your room creates. Choose a light neutral or cream to create a clean, light atmosphere. If you want you’re blinds or shades to stand out, choose a brighter color or pattern to create a focal point. If your room is full of other colors and the focus isn’t your windows, choose a calmer color or pattern. Ambiance Window Coverings offers in-home consultations so you can play with fabric and material samples to visualize how your room will look before you purchase your vertical window treatments.

You can choose different blinds and shades for various windows in your room. If you are covering a sliding glass door with a vertical blind, you can add a horizontal blind to a smaller window in the same room or living space. Many of the fabrics we carry come in a variety of window treatments to fit any size or shape window.   Our Duette® Honeycomb shades and Vignette® Roman shades come with a Vertiglide™ option for larger, wider windows.

You can soften your vertical blinds with a soft sheer fabric placed above the window and draped on either side. This is an easy way to hide the window frame and soften the hard lines of the vertical blinds. We also work with soft window treatments and custom drapery to layer your window treatments for a unique look.
