How to Find Matching Window Coverings

Getting new window coverings for your home can be really exciting. It's not often that you get the opportunity to dramatically change a room's décor, and with all of the different styles of window treatments available, finding the right one can be really fun! But things get more complicated when you have to find window treatments that you like but also match your current décor. You don't want something that is completely out of place, but you don't want an option so plain that you don't like it either.

Person looking at and considering different window treatments

Finding just the right balance is complicated, but with our years of collective experience, we have come up with some tips that will make it simpler to pick out just the right window coverings!

Consider the Current Style

Before you start shopping for new window treatments, it's important to consider what furniture and accessories you already have in place. Unless you plan on doing a full room makeover, you are going to have to ensure that your new window treatments match your current décor. Considering what does and what does not go with your current décor will help define boundaries around what window treatment styles you can pick from. For example, if your style is rustic and cozy, you know you won't want to look for sleek metal blinds or modern sheer shades. Instead, you'll want to go for hardwood shutters or some warm and simple blinds.

Following this idea and applying it to your current style, you can narrow down your choices for new window treatments, making it easier for you to find your new favorite window treatments.

A little planning goes a long way

When it comes to decorating your home, there's no question that planning ahead is key. That's because the right window treatments can make or break a room - and even if you're not looking for anything too fancy, they can still be an investment.

It's important to know what kind of look you want before heading out shopping. After considering your current style and what kind of treatments will fit, the next things you should consider include the following:

  • Consider whether there are any specific elements from other rooms in your house that could be incorporated into new window coverings (for example, if one room has big windows with lots of natural light and another has smaller windows with less light).
  • Take some time on Pinterest or Google Images and look at images that catch your eye so that you can figure out what specific attributes you are looking for in a new window treatment. This way, you already know what kinds of things to look for when you go out shopping.
