Color Ideas For Window Treatments | Drapery Connection

The color of your window treatments is one of the most important design elements affecting the ambiance of a room. There are also important practical factors to consider when choosing curtain colors. Below, you will find full color ideas for interiors to help you make decisions about your 2016 window treatments.


Neutral Tones

Neutral tones tend to be the safest choice in most situations. However, this does not mean they are the best choice for you and your family. For example, you may be very attracted to cheerful floral designs. If, on the other hand, you are planning to sell your home in the near future, most real estate experts agree that neutral colors will appeal to the maximum number of potential buyers.


Bright Bold Colors

When you want to give your room a big pop on first impression, bright bold colors like red, green, or yellow may work best. Thus, this may be a good choice for a room where you do a lot of entertaining. Also, if you have a family member who struggles with depression, vivid colors may help keep them positive.


Best Colors For Bedroom Draperies

Dark colors block out light and light colors let light in. Therefore, if you and your significant other enjoy waking to the breaking dawn, you'll want to choose a lighter color to let in the increasing ambient light of the morning. However, if you need or want to sleep well past sunrise, you'll likely want to choose a darker color for your bedroom draperies.


Best Colors For Your View

When you are choosing a window treatment that you plan to open to a view, it is important to choose a color that compliments the view. So, for example, if you have a west facing den window where you and your family congregate to view colorful sunsets, you may want to choose either a neutral color that will not detract from the spectacular view or a dark color that would frame and accentuate the colorful sky.
