Searching for the ideal window treatment but couldn’t decide between blinds or curtains? It is possible to have the best of both worlds, by pairing curtains with blinds to make a stylish and unique statement. Let us show you how:
Choose Your Blinds
It would be helpful to choose the blinds first, which will go behind the curtains. Think about the type of blinds and colour, such as roller blinds, Venetian blinds, shutter blinds or folded roman blinds.
It is best to select a solid, simple colour to give more options with colour matching when it comes to choosing your curtains.
Choose Your Curtains
Next, when you select your curtains, you can add a touch of creativity and character depending on the atmosphere and mood of the area. If your blinds are in a solid colour, then the options are limitless with the choice of curtains, you can try to pair complementary colours, create a contrasting theme, or even add a bit of fun with patterns and prints.
Once you have paired your blinds with curtains, you can customise other features and accessories such as curtain rods and rings, pelmets, trims and tassels. However, try to keep in line with the theme and atmosphere and don’t go overboard with over accessorising which may cause the window to appear cluttered and messy. Sometimes simple is best.
The fabric and style of the curtains can make an impact on the overall feel of the area. Sheer curtains create a crisper and more relaxed feel, while heavier fabrics can add a touch of elegance and luxury. You can even try layering or bunching curtains for a slight change in mood and privacy depending on the time of day or occasion.
When done right, the opportunities are endless and you’ll find that the flexibility of having both blinds and curtains is worth the effort. For example, you might have blocked out curtains in a bedroom, but want to maintain some privacy while allowing sunlight in during the day. In this case, a shutter or Venetian blind would be a good match to allow this flexibility.
