There’s no doubt that curtains add personality to any space. What’s more, curtains can easily be changed and are available in a variety of colours and patterns, making them a versatile window covering. Many homeowners also have window shutters installed, and sometimes may want both treatments to give them extra privacy and control over airflow and sunlight.
In today’s blog, we want to share some tips on how to hang curtains over window shutters so that you have a good setup, and also so that the design all comes together.
Hang curtains a few inches above the shutters
To do this, install your curtain rod 4-6 inches above the window frame. Depending on the length of your curtains, allow them to touch the floor but they should not be that long that they bunch up in a pile. You can always get your curtains altered.
Choose a color that will create a cohesive feel
Even in a minimalist space, the right curtain hanging over a window shutter could help create an airy feel. Match the color of the curtain to your home’s color palette. You can match the color to the main color or accent color of the room.
Be careful with colorful large prints
Choose the right pattern that won’t make your space look outdated or overdone. For instance, simple and neat floral drapes perfectly accentuate white window shutters. Always make it a goal to choose the right design that will make your room airy and comfortable.
Finding the right drapes for window shutters is easier than you think. Just make sure the curtains’ design are not too busy for the shutters. Figure out what you want for your space and consider your interior’s color palette.
