Today it’s considered that windows shouldn’t be covered to let the light in, to enjoy the views and make the spaces feel airier. But what if you need some privacy, or want to control the excessive sunlight, or maybe it feels not cozy with bare windows? There are some window treatments that are always in trend and look modern and cool. Let’s have a look at some ideas.
Curtains or draperies are a timeless solution that will never go out of style, this is for sure. Draperies hide your space from excessive sunlight, from people’s eyes and also add decorative value to the space. They may highlight the style and decor of your space, accentuate something and even add colors and prints. The most popular option is some sheer or semi sheer curtains that will easily fit any space but you may go for more eye-catchy curtains: color block, watercolor, printed ones. experiment with prints and patterns, with colors and fabrics, too. Velvet is sure to add a refined feel, and tulle will make the space feel airy, floral patterns and bold colors will spruce up a neutral room.
