Ways You Can Cover Different Sized Windows In The Same Room In New York City

June 07, 2021

Nearly all rooms have ordinary rectangular windows that make it straightforward to buy matching window treatments. But occasionally a room has various sized or shaped windows that make purchasing window treatments a challenge. When you need to cover different sized windows in the same room in New York City, you can use identical styles, neutral colors, and layering to create consistency. Or use separate treatments to divide a room or to emphasize an unusual window.

Cover Different Sized New York City Windows In The Same Room With Identical Window Treatments

The best way to create a harmonious appearance for a space’s mismatched windows is to use a single window treatment style on them. This styling trick takes the focus from their varying sizes and creates symmetry in the room. To do it right, use custom-made window treatments in a style that works with all window sizes and shapes, like plantation shutters.

Plantation shutters have panels with a row of louvers made of faux wood or wood. In contrast to shades and blinds, you can have shutters custom-fitted for any window shape and continue to open and close them. Both real wood shutters and faux wood Polywood® shutters are durable enough to use in most rooms in your New York City home.

Make Mismatched Windows Blend In With Neutral Colored Treatments

When you cover different sized/shaped windows in the same room in New York City, neutral colored window treatments look better. Neutrals like white, beige, or browns are calming and help unify asymmetrical features. Subdued colored window treatments make windows blend into your interior design so that their conflicting sizes don’t stick out so much.

Muted palettes give lots of flexibility. You could use white or beige roller shades for a minimalist aesthetic. Or give a bit of elegance to a formal room with ivory or gray Roman shades. And plantation shutters with a white or natural wood color coordinate with any type of decor.

Disguise Inconsistently Sized Windows With Layered Window Treatments

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

Then layer the curtains on top of textured woven fiber shades or plantation shutters to give depth to your windows and draw attention away from their varying sizes.

Mix Window Treatments To Emphasize Windows Or Break Up A Room

You might find times when you don’t want identical window treatments. You can use dissimilar window treatments to designate specific areas if you have an open floor plan. You might put up plantation shutters to block sunlight where you watch television and beautiful Roman shades across the room next to the dinner table.

You might additionally want to show off a singular window, like a bow or a bay window, with patterned shades that work with solid-colored shades in the remaining space. Or use custom-fitted shutters on a circle window that you don’t want to obscure behind a shade or blind like you use on rectangle windows.
