33 Stylish Window Treatment Ideas That Dress Up Interiors in an Instant

 

Whether you hang curtains or roller shades, window coverings are the finishing touch every room needs

 

 

If you’re hoping to maximize natural light in your living room or add the perfect finishing touch to the home decor, we rounded up a plethora of window treatment ideas from designers and the AD archives to get the job done right.

 

What types of curtains are in style?

“A lot of my clients are wanting to use fabrics that are light and airy, like linens,” says Susan Spath, principal of Solana Beach, California-based firm Kern & Co. “It gives window treatments a softer look and isn’t as heavy. We are also doing a lot of sheers. Sheers frame the window nicely and give an extra layer to make the home even cozier.” Perhaps thanks to grandmillennials everywhere, Maestri is seeing a triumphant return of “old-school cornice boards and even new takes on balloon shades, as well as micro-shutters.”

Bring in pattern via stained glass

Spath selected a stained glass window for this window instead of using the traditional shade or drape. She had the piece custom-made to match the exterior and interior hues of her clients’ home. This tactic might just be the best window treatment for anyone who wants to avoid too much upholstery or fabric—a good call in a bathroom. “A glass window still allows plenty of light but ensures privacy, which was perfect for this smaller-scale bathroom where one would not want to feel dark or crowded. It also adds a fun pop of color.”
