Dressed to Perfection: Window Treatments for Tall Windows
Every window has a unique character that is important to the architectural style and interior design of the home. A tall window is an exceptional object of style.
Some have said that the tall window which is associated with the Georgian architecture and style of the 18th century is a perfection of design.
How do you dress this window without taking away from the appealing statement it makes in your home? Here are a few Home Decor Solutions:
Tall windows offer many opportunities for traditional, formal treatments, and simpler designs. To maximize the available light from this window it is good to keep in mind that whatever window treatment you choose, avoid heavy materials or window coverings that are overly ornate in design.
A restrained look might include basic pinch pleat drapes, or a classic pair of draperies with a simple swag, or a single panel draped diagonally across the window frame and caught high up with a tieback.
A pair of draperies with a simple swag is also an attractive way to dress a window with interior shutters. If using draperies on a tall, narrow window that does not extend to the floor make sure the draperies fall to the floor to anchor the window in the room.
Another option for a tall well proportioned window is a Roman shade. When hung within the window frame the shade will highlight the architecture of the window.
For a modern twist, a Roman shade made of rattan, bamboo or other natural fibers will add a visual and textural interest.
Roman shades are a smart choice because they look suitable in all decors from traditional, contemporary, or country. Roman shades also raise and lower easily to provide the exact amount of light needed and they can draw up completely to allow for an open view. Hunter Douglas Vignette Modern Roman Shade and Alustra Vignette Roman Shade, with exclusive fabrics and colors are a smart way to dress the tall window. With colors such as Iceberg, Plumeria, and Copper Fields, these shades provide a style from the modern and sleek to the dramatic and conventionally beautiful.
