Window Treatment Ideas for Your Bedroom

Your bedroom is your space to get away from it all. It should be relaxing and comfortable while making a statement about your personal style. One of the most important design elements in your bedroom is your window treatments. The window treatment has to flow with the all-around design concept of the room. There are a multitude of options to choose from that include floor-to-ceiling silk panels, heavier brocade drapes and even plantation shutters.

Simple Panels
Simple panels are a fresh way to bring a room's décor together. You can accomplish this in many ways via the use of color, pattern and texture. Simple panels are also a great way to create a stunning window treatment when accompanied by plantation shutters. By choosing different materials, you can set the tone of the room. You could choose linen panels for a simple, functional design or silk panels which encourage an elegant or romantic impression.

Valance and Drapery Panels
Valances and drapery panels are a wonderful way to accent a window. Valances can be covered in a pattern or a solid color to pick up the room's mood. They can add drama or invoke simplicity. Drapery panels are a versatile solution that when combined with window coverings such as indoor shutters can make a wonderful impression.

Not every window treatment in your bedroom needs to be the same. One window may have plantation shutters and another may have drapery but when pulled together with the rest of the room's design it can create interest and depth.

Creating Intimacy
While a bedroom should be functional, it is always nice to have a romantic air about the room. A great solution is to create intimacy with layered panels such as floating sheer panels combined with panels of varying texture. Pairing luxurious plantation shutters for privacy and energy savings with romantic soft, drapes is another way to create intimacy.

The different styles of window treatments in varied colors, panels and textures can be used in a dizzying array of combinations. Your window treatments can be used as a focal point if they can effectively blend into the room's overall scheme. Regardless, they should be functional as well as beautiful. Plantations shutters are a wonderful way to save energy and to increase the room's privacy. They are elegant, durable, and add value to your home as well as fit well into just about any décor.
