Alternative window dressing ideas 

Selecting the right window dressing can enhance a room and add that special touch to make an impact.  It is an area of room design that is often down played, but which if done correctly will be the envy of visitors.

The market is brimming with curtain and blind choices in the same select designs, patterns and fabrics.  We challenge you to go against convention for something a bit different.  Here are some tips for redefining your choice of window treatments.



Go for a bold or unusual pattern and contrast with plain walls in a subtle shade.  Your curtain will not overpower the room if the rest of the scheme blends in, then co-ordinate with matching furnishings.



Choose an unusual curtain design.  Try combining two vertical panels of contrasting fabrics together.  It has a stunning effect and adds interest.  Alternatively mix the panels horizontally.  This creates a dynamic look and introduces contrast to your design scheme.



Position blinds and curtains together in contrasting fabrics for a vibrant window treatment. Mix and match colours and designs that complement each other for an impact window statement.


A double sided curtain with contrasting fabrics in similar tones is an effective design feature.   When pulled back the reverse side will show against the front highlighting the contrasting features of both fabrics.


Go for an unconventional blind design.  A double sided blind with string pull system displays the reverse fabric against the front and is very effective.  Alternatively go for a statement piece and display artwork inspired fabric on a blind.
