Unique Window Treatments for Small Rooms

March 21st, 2023 by tisner

When it comes to the smaller rooms in the house, window treatments play an important part in the feel of the space. You do not, however, have to give up style or privacy in these areas; check out these unique ways you can add pizzazz to your windows, and “space” to your small room:

  • If drapes are your only choice, install the hardware higher on the wall than the top of the window. This simple trick will add a spacious feel to the room. 
  • Using a simple roller shade keeps an open feel to the room. Rollers come in many colors, or you can create a custom shade with adhesive-back shelf paper, fabric, or even wallpaper. 
  • Hanging a neutral valance will keep the room light, and add color to the window by hanging an old stained glass window section, or create your own “stained glass!” 
  • A simple way to add style and make the room seem larger by drawing the eye up is to use a cornice or a pelmet covered in colorful fabric and paired with plain sheer panels. 
  • Using shutters instead of curtains gives you privacy while allowing light to come through when you have adjustable louvers on the shutters. Most are made of wood and can be painted or stained to match your room’s decor or make a statement. 
  • Need privacy but need to keep the room well-lit? This is an easy DIY using “frosted glass” film or spray paint! A textured glass look can be created using clear glass craft paint. 
  • A sunny window is a perfect place for plants, so use them as your window treatment! Purchase shelving and install, or make shelves for your green thumb display. 
  • Window screens made of laser-cut metal are becoming increasingly popular and more affordable. Styles are seemingly endless and can be easily purchased at online home decor sites or even craft websites with laser-cutting machines becoming more common for crafters. 

The window treatments, placement and size of the furniture, and scale of the room’s decor are all factors for making a room seem open or stuffy. Choose wisely so time spent there will not leave you with a “cooped up” feeling! Simple is more in a small room!
