How To Cover Different Sized Windows In The Same Room In Detroit

Steve Hill

Nearly all rooms have standard rectangle windows that make it easy to buy matching window treatments. But occasionally a room has different sized or shaped windows that make shopping for window treatments a challenge. If you have to cover different sized windows in the same room in Detroit, you can use the same style, neutral colors, and layering to create consistency. Or use different treatments to divide a room or to highlight a singular window.

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

The best method to give a space’s mismatched windows a cohesive appearance is by using a single style of window treatment on them. This decorating trick takes the focus off of their different sizes and creates harmony in the room. To do it properly, use custom-made window treatments in a style that works for every window size and shape, such as plantation shutters.

Plantation shutters have panels of stacked louvers made of faux wood or wood. In contrast to shades and blinds, 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 strong enough to use in most rooms in your Detroit home.

Make Mismatched Windows Not Stick Out With Neutral Colored Treatments

When you cover different sized/shaped windows in the same room in Detroit, neutral colored window treatments look best. Neutrals like white, browns, or beige are calming and help balance asymmetrical features. Neutral colored window treatments let windows blend into your decor so that their various sizes don’t clash so much.

Muted palettes present lots of versatility. You can use white or beige roller shades for a minimalist look. Or give a bit of elegance to a formal room with gray or ivory Roman shades. And interior shutters in a white or natural wood hue complement all types of decor.

Camouflage Different Sized Windows With Layered Window Treatments

You may cover different sized windows in the same room with layered window treatments to hide their size disparity as well. If a room’s window sizes aren’t very different, install curtains at identical heights for all of them to create the illusion that your windows are the same.

Then layer the curtains on top of textured woven fiber shades or interior shutters to give interest to your windows and distract from their mismatched sizes.

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

You might find scenarios when you don’t want identical window treatments. You can use different window treatments to designate specific areas if you have an open floor plan. You could use plantation shutters to block light where you watch TV and elegant Roman shades across the room by the supper table.

You may also want to spotlight an unusual window, like a bow or a bay window, with patterned shades that coordinate with solid-colored shades in the remaining space. Or use custom-made shutters on a circular window that you don’t want to hide behind a blind or shade like you put on rectangular windows.
