How To Cover Different Sized Windows In The Same Room In San Diego

Tyson Williams

Almost all rooms have standard rectangle windows that make it easy to buy identical window treatments. But sometimes a space has different sized or shaped windows that make looking for window treatments difficult. When you have to cover different sized windows in the same room in San Diego, you can rely on the same style, neutral colors, and layering to create uniformity. Or use separate treatments to split up an area or to highlight an unusual window.

Cover Different Sized San Diego Windows In The Same Room With Matching Window Treatments

The best way to create a harmonious design for a space’s mismatched windows is to use a single style of window treatment on them. This decorating trick removes the focus from their inconsistent sizes and achieves symmetry in the room. To do this properly, use a style of custom-made window treatments that works for all window sizes and shapes, like plantation shutters.

Plantation shutters have panels with a row of louvers made of hardwood or faux wood. In contrast to blinds and shades, 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 strong enough to use in most rooms in your San Diego house.

Make Ill-matched Windows Not Stick Out With Neutral Colored Treatments

When you cover different sized/shaped windows in the same room in San Diego, neutral colored window treatments look best. Neutrals like white, browns, or beige are soothing and help unify unbalanced features. Neutral colored window treatments let windows fade into your interior design so that their various sizes don’t clash as much.

Soft palettes give plenty of versatility. You could use white or beige roller shades for a minimalist look. Or give a bit of refinement to a formal room with ivory or gray Roman shades. And plantation shutters with a natural wood or white shade coordinate with any type of decor.

Conceal Different Sized Windows With Layered Window Treatments

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

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

Mix Window Treatments To Highlight Windows Or Break Up A Room

You might find scenarios where you don’t want identical window treatments. You can utilize separate window treatments to assign specific areas if you have an open floor plan. You could put up interior shutters to keep out light where you watch television and beautiful Roman shades across the room next to the supper table.

You might also want to highlight an exceptional window, like a a bay or a bow window, with patterned shades that work with solid-colored shades throughout the rest of the space. Or use custom shutters on a circular window that you don’t want to hide behind a shade or blind like you put on rectangular windows.
