Learn Which Shades and Drapes Work Best Together
Pairing shades with drapes can really add drama and dimension to a room. But knowing just how to combine these window treatments can be challenging. You may be wondering, is my window too small for drapes? Should I get shades, sheers or blinds? Which colors, patterns and textures go well together?
First, Choose a Shade
Always start with choosing the type of shade you want since drapes are easier to change out. If your room is small, you might want a shade with a cleaner look. If your room is larger, then a more colorful, dramatic shade could work better. Then consider the décor of your room. If your walls have semi-bright colors, you could choose a shade in a contrasting color that pops. If you have lots of patterns and prints in your room, think about a more simple style of shade.
