When selecting colors for windows think about what effect you want to create. If you want the window to add drama and be a focal point, use contrasting colors to the wall color. On the other hand, if you want to make the room look larger, blend or coordinate the window and wall colors.
If you are comfortable with color, use it! There are a multitude of color choices. Consider some fun colors for children’s bedrooms or play rooms.
Neutral colors provide longevity and flexibility. These colors, whether black, white, gray, brown, beige, or cream create the perfect rooms in which to live and relax. Because window treatments become permanent fixtures in a home, it is important to select a color that will be easy to live with for a long time or a color that will appeal to future homeowners if selling the home is a possibility in the future. Neutral colors are timeless and allow for the other, more easily replaceable, design elements to change as needed, such as pillows on a sofa, area rugs, paint and accessories.
The color of window treatments not only plays a role on the interior of a home, but also on the exterior. Be sure to examine the backside of the window treatments so you will know how they look on the outside of your home. Some window treatments offer white backings but others do not.
