Patterns Or Solids

Many shade styles like our Designer Roller Shades are offered in a variety of materials that give you options for adding bold or muted patterns to your décor. If your room and especially your furniture is one solid color, then adding a patterned window treatment will create a contrast in the room with stunning results. Large prints will create a focal point in the room whereas smaller prints like dots or small lines will add a look that gives your room more texture. If your furnishings are patterned or your room seems busy, sticking with a solid color window treatment will be your best bet.

Neutral Window Treatments

If you are sticking with a more monochromatic scheme in your home, choosing a neutral color will create the look you’re after. Choose a shade that is the same color as the walls or slightly darker. Neutral color window treatments are a safe pick. You can use them over and over again even if you change everything else in the room.

Matching Accessories

Many times when you are creating a look that is appealing to you, you have a color you love or you want to stand out in the room. You can match your window treatments to this color and carry the color in smaller doses throughout the room. Many people choose bright stripped or patterned pillows and then pick a solid color from the pattern to use for their custom window shades. If you are adding custom drapery to your shades, allow the drapery to be the focal point. Choose a subtle solid color that matches a color in the drapery or that matches the walls.

Choosing the color of your shades is one of the most important decisions you will make when it comes to creating the look you want. Color speaks volumes and can set the overall tone of the room.
