It’s become trendy to do away with window coverings, but a good window treatment brings such beauty to a space. It feels homey, layered, and put together. There are endless amounts of treatments and looks to try out depending on your needs, style, and desires. Here are some of my favorite looks and why they work.

9 Inspiring Window Coverings

  1. Stacy Style. Plantation shutters and curtains. Plantation shutters have long been a favorite look of mine. They’re for more of a traditional feel, though they can work in a variety of styles. Here they are paired with hanging curtains to feel a bit more luxurious.
  2. Glitter Guide. Curtains on rods. Curtains are perhaps my favorite look. Here they work well in white in contrast with the dark walls. Curtains are great for making a space feel larger than it actually is, especially if you place the rod higher towards the ceiling.
  3. Greige Design. Draped curtains. This creative curtain hanging gorgeously drapes the windows. The fabric used feels luxurious, especially draped as it is. Try this in a space that needs more warming up to combat the minimal look.
  4. The D Pages. These tailored curtains perfectly fit the rectangle shape of the windows. This is for a more modern look. 9 Inspiring Window Coverings
  5. House of Turquoise. Valences have more of a dated feel, but they can work well in a more sophisticated room when the pattern is fresh and the design isn’t too gathered.
  6. Blinds Galore. Roman shades are another favorite of mine. Here the linen feels young and fresh. They work well in this understated, slightly rustic dining room.
  7. The Pursuit of Style. Bamboo shades were super hot about 10 years ago but they still work so well in tying together an eclectic space. They can be used in traditional and modern styles.
  8. Lonny. Long curtains. My favorite way to display curtains is when they pool onto the ground. This technique feels rich and luxurious.
  9. (top image) If you want a nod to the 70s, a fun macramé hanging over a window, is a fun and unexpected way to cover your windows. Nowadays, it feels young modern.

What’s your favorite way to drape a window?
