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

June 07, 2021

Nearly all rooms have basic rectangular windows that make it simple to find matching window treatments. But sometimes a room has different shaped or sized windows that make purchasing window treatments a challenge. If you have to cover different sized windows in the same room in Honolulu, you can rely on identical styles, neutral hues, and layering to create uniformity. Or use separate treatments to divide a room or to highlight a unique window.

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

The best method to create a uniform appearance for a room’s ill-matched windows is to use the same window treatment style on them. This styling trick removes the focus from their different sizes and creates harmony in the room. To do it properly, use a kind of custom window treatments that works with every window size and shape, such as plantation shutters.

Plantation shutters have panels of stacked louvers made of faux wood or hardwood. In contrast to shades and blinds, you can have shutters custom-fitted to any window shape and continue to open and close them. Both faux wood Polywood® shutters and real wood shutters are durable enough to utilize in most rooms of your Honolulu home.

Make Mismatched Windows Not Stick Out With Neutral Colored Treatments

Neutral-colored window treatments look better when you cover different sized/shaped windows in the same room in Honolulu. Neutrals like browns, beige, or white are soothing and help create equilibrium between unsymmetrical features. Subdued colored window treatments make windows fade into your interior design so that their different sizes don’t stick out as much.

Soft palettes present a lot of flexibility. You could use beige or white roller shades for a minimalist look. Or give a touch of elegance to a formal room with gray or ivory Roman shades. And interior shutters with a natural wood or white hue coordinate with any type of decor.

Conceal Different Sized Windows With Layered Window Treatments

You can cover different sized windows in the same room with layered window treatments to hide their size disparity as well. If a room’s windows aren’t vastly different sizes, put up curtains at the same height for each of them to make it appear that your windows are all alike.

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

Emphasize Windows Or Divide Up A Room By Mixing Window Treatments

You might have situations where you don’t want identical window treatments. You can use mismatched window treatments to designate specific areas if you have an open floor plan. You could use plantation shutters to block sunlight where you watch television and elegant Roman shades across the room next to the dining table.

You might also want to spotlight a special window, like a a bay or a bow window, with patterned shades that work with single-colored shades in the remaining space. Or use custom-made shutters on a circle window that you don’t want to conceal behind a blind or shade like you use on rectangular windows.
