“Ditch drapery that isn’t working for your room
In case you didn’t get the memo, your window treatments can make or break your space. Thick drapes might successfully protect your place from harsh sunlight and nosy neighbors, but they’re often not furthering the overall look, feel, and cohesiveness of your room.
‘Outdated fabric and window treatments can really give the room a mood that may not be in line with your new year’s vibe,’ explains designer Adam Meshberg, founder and CEO of Meshberg Group .
If you’re looking for window treatments that strike a balance between form and function, opt for a set of semi-sheer curtains like what’s in the living room above. Fabric isn’t all that matters with window treatments either; length is key, and too-short drapery isn’t cutting it, that is, if you’re looking to make the most out of your space. ‘Drapery that doesn’t reach all the way to the floor makes the room appear smaller and ceilings seem lower,” says designer Marie Flanigan. ‘If yours are too short, consider replacing them. Ideally, full-length window treatments should bend slightly where they meet the floor and be hung as close to the ceiling as possible.'” – excerpt, Apartment Therapy
