Defining the Focal Point of a Room
When you walk into a room, your eyes automatically go to a certain item or area in the room. It might be the piano, a fireplace, a TV, a window, or a collection of art. A room can have several focal points. Many rooms have a piano, a window with a view, a fireplace, a TV, and lots of artwork. So the main focal point in a room is defined by how the furnishings are arranged around it. As the seasons change, so can your furniture. Move it around and regroup around what you want the focal point to be. At Shutter Guy serving the greater Charleston area, we’ll be more than happy to help you ensure that, not matter what the focal point, your window treatments fit the room’s look and feel.
If Your Window Is the Focal Point
To start thinking about how you should decorate your window, consider the view—if it’s attractive, you want to preserve it; if it’s not, you might want to play it down. Think about the look of the windows from the outside as well—if all of your windows don’t have the same type of treatment, it helps if they’re all the same color. If you’ve got a vertical treatment, remember that vertical products can open in the middle, go to one side, or totally disappear. Some of the vertical products from Hunter Douglas include Duette® Vertiglide™ Honeycomb Shades, Skyline® Gliding Panels, and Vignette® Modern Shades. Horizontal products offer a variety of options such as the top-down/bottom-up operating feature, which allows for more options for letting light in or keeping it out. These products work well in kitchens, bedrooms, and bathrooms. Some of the Hunter Douglas horizontal products include Duette® Architella® Honeycomb Shades, Solera® Soft Shades, and Provenance® Woven Woods.
Tying It Together
Window treatments will advance or recede into a room through color, texture, and print. Timeless colors and textures on a window will add a soft addition to any room. Draperies or top treatments that carry the same color as the walls will recede into the room. Neutral colors and soft textures will be easier to keep if your colors and décor changes.
