Every room should have a focal point. Often, people pick artwork or furniture, but windows can be a great option as well. Here are a few different ways to make windows a focal point of any rooms in your home.
1 – Hang Curtains Beyond the Window Frame
Don’t hang your curtains immediately above and within the frame of your windows. Instead, consider hanging the rod above the frame and extend it wider than the windows’ width. This visually makes your window areas appear larger and wider. Also, it allows you to open the curtains and expose the entire window pane, maximizing the amount of natural light entering the room. Both are great for making the windows a focal point in the room.
2 – Layer Curtains with Blinds or Shades
It’s all about the layers. You don’t need to select window curtains or blinds/shades. You can do both. Pairing can create a dramatic combination that really stands out in the room. Also, it can give you flexibility for controlling the amount of light that enters the room,…maximizing light or privacy as needed.
3 – Choose Long Curtains
Another helpful trick to make windows the focal point of a room is to go long. Don’t end your curtains at the window sill. Extend them all the way down to the floor. This increases the perceived height of the wall and increases the focal point on the window treatments.
4 – Opt for Colors and Patterns
Choosing the right colors and patterns for your window treatments is key to making windows a focal point in a room. Bold patterns and colors can stand out and balance other decorative elements of a room. Whether you prefer curtains, blinds, shades, or a combination, modern options allow you to select from a range of colors, patterns, and textures. You can make your windows an eye catching feature of your room.
