How to Choose Bedroom Window Treatments

For many of us, the bedroom is an area of rest and relaxation. It’s important to create an atmosphere in your bedroom that allows you to forget about the troubles of the day and get quality sleep. The environment of your bedroom can certainly impact sleep and energy levels, and bedroom window treatments can play a big role in this area. Whether you are looking for a stylish bedroom, more privacy, or an ideal sleeping environment, here is what you need to know about choosing bedroom window treatments.

Types of Window Treatments

Whether your style is eclectic or traditional, there are many types of window treatments to suit any bedroom decor. These are the basic types of window treatments found in bedrooms across the country.

  • Plantation Shutters are offered in both solid composite and real wood! Our shutters are designed for energy efficiency, light control, insulation and much more.
  • Shades come in a wide variety of styles! Some of our options include: sheer, roller/solar, woven wood, cellular, and panel track shades. 
  • Blinds are offered in both premium faux wood and real wood. Each has their own benefits and features.
  • Curtains are a common window treatment that are effective for adding privacy and style. These are sold as one panel or sometimes sold as two. Curtains vary in price and are found as cheap as $15 per panel or as expensive as several hundred dollars per panel. The price depends on factors of material quality and fabric type.
  • Drapes are similar to curtains but they are made with heavier fabric, and they are often lined or pleated. They are also typically hung on a transverse rod with a pull or string. This allows for easy opening and closing.
  • Sheers are very lightweight curtains that don’t offer a lot of privacy, but they allow a lot of daylight into the room even when they’re closed.
  • Swags are horizontally draped in folds along the top of a window. They are primarily decorative.

Types of Window Treatment Materials

There are dozens of window treatment materials to add privacy, elegance, or even drama to the bedroom. These are some of the most popular materials for window treatments.

  • Organic materials: If you want to create a retreat in your bedroom, consider organic materials such as bamboo shades. Note that these don’t offer an exceptional amount of privacy but they are interesting to look at and add texture. 
  • Luxury fabrics: Think of curtains and drapes in velvet and silk. These fabrics add drama to any bedroom.
  • Polyester: This is a popular material for curtains due to its durability and affordability.
  • Cotton: This material is crisp and clean, ideal for bedrooms with modern and traditional decor.
  • Linen: This is a billowy material that helps create an airy feel to the bedroom.
  • Lace: For a romantic feel for your bedroom, consider lace sheers

Choosing Window Treatment Colors

Color plays a huge part in selecting the perfect window treatments. The right color can create the right mood, so it is important to choose wisely. Start by considering your style preferences and choosing colors that coordinate with the look you want.

 It can also be helpful to consider the color temperature of the room you are planning to decorate. 

  • For example, if you want your room to feel warm and cozy, pick warm shades like reds, oranges, browns and yellows. 
  • If you want your room to feel cool and inviting, pick cool blues, purples and grays. 
  • When you want your curtains to have a large impact on the space, go for bold patterns like checkers or stripes.

Color has a big impact on psychology and energy levels. Colors that add energy to a room are yellow and red, while blue and green can have a calming effect. White makes a bedroom feel brighter and lighter, and black can add elegance and mystery.

As you can see, there are nearly limitless options to mix and max window treatment styles, materials, colors, and patterns. Choose the style, color, and materials that fit your mood and help create your ideal bedroom.
