How You Can Cover Different Sized Windows In The Same Room In Southern California

June 07, 2021

The majority of rooms have basic rectangular windows that make it easy to buy identical window treatments. But occasionally a space has various shaped or sized windows that make looking for window treatments challenging. When you want to cover different sized windows in the same room in Southern California, you can use the same style, neutral colors, and layering to create consistency. Or use different treatments to break up an area or to emphasize a special window.

Cover Different Sized Southern California Windows In The Same Room With Identical Window Treatments

The best method to give a room’s different-sized windows a harmonious design is to use the same window treatment style on them. This styling trick removes the focus from their inconsistent sizes and achieves symmetry in the room. To do it properly, use custom-made window treatments in a style that works on every window size and shape, like plantation shutters.

Plantation shutters have panels of stacked louvers made of faux wood or wood. In contrast to blinds and shades, you can have shutters custom-fitted to any window shape and continue to open and close them. Both real wood shutters and faux wood Polywood® shutters are durable enough to use in most rooms in your Southern California house.

Help Clashing Windows Blend In With Neutral Colored Treatments

Neutral-colored window treatments look best when you cover different sized/shaped windows in the same room in Southern California. Neutrals like beige, white, or browns are calming and help balance unsymmetrical features. Subdued colored window treatments make windows fade into your decor so that their conflicting sizes don’t stick out as much.

Muted palettes present lots of flexibility. You can use white or beige roller shades for a minimalist look. Or add a bit of refinement to a formal room with gray or ivory Roman shades. And interior shutters in a white or natural wood color coordinate with all types of decor.

Hide Different Sized Windows With Layered Window Treatments

You can cover different sized windows in the same room with layered window treatments to hide their irregularities as well. If a room’s windows aren’t very different sizes, put up curtains at the same height for each of them to create the illusion that your windows are all alike.

Then layer the curtains over textured woven fiber shades or plantation shutters to give depth to your windows and draw attention away from their different sizes.

Mix Window Treatments To Show Off Windows Or Divide Up A Room

You might have times where you don’t want uniform window treatments. You can utilize different window treatments to assign specific areas if you have an open floor plan. You could put up interior shutters to keep out sunlight where you watch television and elegant Roman shades across the room next to the dining table.

You may additionally want to spotlight a special window, like a a bay or a bow window, with patterned shades that go with solid-colored shades in the remaining space. Or use custom shutters on a circle window that you don’t want to obscure behind a blind or shade like you put on rectangular windows.
